FaZe Clan professional Fortnite players Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore have won the ninth running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

The pair beat out the TeamSolomid pro duo of Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani and Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin to secure the $10,000 grand prize and win the competition for an unprecedented fourth time.

Having already beat Myth and Hamlinz in the Winners Bracket finals, Tfue and Cloak needed to win only one match in the Grand Final, whereas their opponents needed two.

The first match started off quickly in FaZe’s favor, as they managed to grab a 23-12 elimination lead after the first game. 

The 11 kill deficit proved to be too steep to overcome for TSM as a rather evenly played second game allowed the FaZe boys to maintain their lead and secure the championship.

The victory meant that Tfue and Cloak improved to 2-0 vs TSM in the Grand Finals and became the first players to win Friday Fortnite for a fourth time, while no other players have managed to win it more than once.

Week 4 winners Myth and Hamlinz had a chance to join them as multiple time champions, but were not up to the challenge.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the ninth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on July 6th featured some of the biggest names of the online gaming and content creation communities.

Members of FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch streamers such as Ninja, FaZe Banks, Roman Atwood all competed for a share of the massive $20,000 prize pool.

The winner’s of last week’s competition, ‘Ninja’ and ‘Hysteria,’ were eliminated in the fifth round of the Losers Bracket, losing to ‘Nickmercs’ and ‘HighDistortion.’

Here are the final placements for Friday Fortnite Week 9:

Place Team Prize
1 FaZe Cloak & FaZe Tfue $10,000

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
