First Fortnite Chapter 2 holiday event decorations discovered in-game

The first decorations for Fortnite’s Holiday event have begun landing on the battle royale island – and more will be on the way. 

One of the major ways that Epic Games has been able to have the success they’ve had with Fortnite is the ability to keep the battle royale title topically. 

While it has it’s own in-game seasons, real-life events are taken into account and delivered in the form of skins, challenges, or even full-blown parts of the map. We’ve already seen Fortnite deliver it’s first long holiday-themed event back in season seven, and with Chapter 2 in full swing, the winter period is coming back to the battle royale island.

Epic GamesFortnite Season Seven’s holiday event was one of the game’s most popular to date.

German Fortnite content creator Hey Stan noted that shipment of Christmas decorations had arrived at Dirty Docks back on November 21. “The Christmas delivery is there in Dirty Docks,” he tweeted.

Hidden inside some of the containers are Christmas trees already dressed in lights, while others have small wooden carvings that have lightbulbs on as well. Of course, these are harvestable for wood so if you don’t find them at Dirty Docks quickly, you may lose out on seeing them.

While season seven had the map, at one point, covered in snow, it could be a different story in terms of Chapter 2.

As of writing, there haven’t been any hints about a possible weather change to snow, however, we could be getting some fog at the very least. Reddit user Romulousvoid noted in the FortniteBR subreddit that using epic setting in replay mode would show a bit of fog.

However, some fans stated that it could have just been an error. “Don’t they use fog in Sneaky Silencers LTM? Could be a bug,” asked ShortSonic01.

We know that the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 will be extended for the holiday period and there will also be a live event with new content rolled out – likely similar to 14 Days of Fortnite.

However, it remains to be seen as to what else the developers have in store for fans across the end of December.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
