The Fortnite World Cup is finally over after Bugha, Aqua and Nyhrox were crowned world champions. In the fallout, we pick out a few players who failed to meet expectations in New York.

Bugha put on a masterful display in the solos tournament, winning the first match of the event, staying in first place until the end of the six matches to take home the $3m grand prize. In the duos, Aqua and Nyhrox put on a clinic, dominating matches from the high ground to secure the trophy.

There were plenty of surprise packages at the tournament, such as 13-year-old Argentinean star King who wowed the crowd with his relentless aggression, but also plenty of players who failed to perform.

We pick out the five biggest disappointments from the Fortnite World Cup

Tfue

EPIC GAMESTfue under performed on the main stage.

As one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, expectations were high for former FaZe Clan star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney who secured his place at the tournament by streaming on his channel, without a delay, to hundreds of thousands.

Despite landing at his favored spot, the Block, the 21-year-old was unable to get going and found himself losing engagements way before nearing the placement points. His 67th place finish was a massive under-performance given his success at previous LAN events.

Stompy

GFUELStompy was expected to finish among the top players.

After dominating the European qualifiers in both solos and duos, Eleven Gaming’s Klaus ‘Stompy’ Konstanzer was expected to be among the very top players. However, he couldn’t replicate his sensational online performances on the main stage.

Indeed, a 14th placed finish in the solo event and 25th placed finish in the duo event isn’t anything to be ashamed of, but the pre-tournament favorite will know he could have done much better.

Funk

FAZE CLANFunk couldn’t place well alongside his duo Nate Hill.

FaZe Clan star Trevor ‘Funk’ Siegler was one of the few players to double qualify for both the solos and duos event. However, the American struggled to perform under the bright lights, finishing 99th in solos without registering a single point.

With many players contesting his drop spot, the remainder of his game was affected as a result. Given his evident skill, it won’t be long before Funk returns to the right end of the leaderboard.

Bizzle

EPIC GAMESBizzle was previously the highest earner in Fortnite history.

Entering the tournament as Fortnite’s highest earner, hopes were high that Ghost Gaming’s Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller could replicate his ridiculously consistent performances in previous LAN events during the solo World Cup.

However, he was unable to deal with the aggression shown by some players in such a stacked lobby of pros. A 23rd place finish isn’t too bad, but many expected Bizzle to be right at the top of the standings.

Nicks

SPORTV GLOBONicks was one of the top performers in Brazil during qualifying.

Qualifying from the South American region, Brazilian pro Nicollas ‘Nicks’ Polonio de Oliveira was highlighted as a player who could cause a massive upset, following some dominant displays during the qualifiers.

However, the Cloud9 pro couldn’t deal with the step up in competition, finishing 51st
in solos and 47th in duos. His aggressive playstyle cost him valuable placement points; the youngster will have to adapt his game to be successful in future events.

What is the next tournament in Fortnite?

The World Cup was the biggest event in Fortnite’s history, but Epic Games still have big plans for their competitive scene. Announced in New York was the brand-new Championship Series which will be implemented in Season 10.

With even more millions set to be on offer, all the players on this list will have the chance to redeem themselves in the future.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
