A classic challenge from Season 5 in Fortnite Battle Royale has returned in Season 6 and you’ll once again become a daredevil as you ‘jump through Flaming Hoops with a Shopping Cart or ATK’.

We’re pretty shocked by the fact that you can’t use Quadcrashers for this challenge as they’re pretty much tailor made for it, but we’ll try to keep our disappointment under wraps.

The Flaming Hoops are now live in-game along with the official Week 5 challenges, which were released on October 25, and you can begin your career as the next Evel Knievel right now.

You have to jump through a total of five hoops to complete this challenge and the image below should help you to find them in no time at all!

There is a chance that the map does not show every single Flaming Hoop location but it should be more than enough to help you complete the challenge.

In a week where most of the challenges are nothing short of boring, this Flaming Hoop challenge and the ‘Record a speed of 27 or more in front of different Radar Signs’ one will come as a welcome relief.

As always, we advise you to finish playing any game where you jump through one of the Flaming Hoops before returning to the lobby.

If you leave the match before being eliminated or picking up the win there is a chance that your progression with the challenge won’t be applied properly.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
