Twitch extraordinaire Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Cloud9 Fortnite pro Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser have won the eight running of the KEEMSTAR ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.


The former Halo teammates beat out the defending champion FaZe Clan pro duo of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore in the Grand Final to claim the $10,000 grand prize.

Coming from the Losers Bracket, Ninja and Hysteria had to win two matches in the Grand Final, while the Winners Bracket winning FaZe duo had to only win one.


In the first match, FaZe took a one kill lead after game one, but superb performances from both Ninja and Hysteria in game two gave them a 42-32 kill victory, resetting the bracket and forcing a second match.

The “winners take all” second match proved to be as intense as the first, as Ninja and Hysteria took a 22-16 lead after the first heat. They were able to close things out in the second game as both FaZe players were shockingly eliminated very early and thus could not overcome the deficit.

The victory gave Ninja and Hysteria their first ever Friday Fortnite championship, and allowed Ninja to exact his revenge against the very same opponents he had lost to in the Grand Final of Week 3.


Week 8 also marked the first time that Tfue and Cloak had lost in a Grand Final as they had been a flawless 3/3 in previous attempts.

Sponsored by popular YouTube Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and UMG, the seventh running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament on June 29th 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, Ricegum, Roman Atwood all competed for a piece of the massive $20,000 prize pool.

Epic Games have revealed some of the bug fixes that they’ve got lined up for the next Fortnite update, and a few annoying issues look set to be resolved. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its endpoint, some fans are already looking ahead to what the cinematic end of season event might have in store, as well as what Chapter 2, Season 5 could be about in terms of the theme.


Despite all the speculation, Epic Games are just cracking on with keeping the current season feeling fresh – releasing new challenges, new cosmetics, as well as some other superpowers for players to use.

On top of that, they’ve also been rooting out problems with their regular updates. With the v14.30 patch on the horizon, the devs have also got a few fixes coming to all of their modes. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

A handful of problems have been labeled as ‘Fixed in next Game Update’ on their public Trello board as of October 10, with a few annoying battle royale issues being addressed.

These include the issue with movement stopping when placing a marker, inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble, and licensed audio playing on the Last Forever emote.

In addition to those, mobile players who had been frustrated by the XP bar not showing the correct level will have their issues fixed as well. 


Fortnite v14.30 bug fixes

  • Placing a map marker cancels movement 
  • Inventory shuffling after respawning in Team Rumble 
  • Audio of Last Forever emote playing even with licensed audio muted 
  • XP bar can be visually incorrect while in a match/incorrect leveling up on mobile. 

As for Save the World, there are two issues labeled as fixed in Future Game Update, including the wrong animation for the Sword of the Daywalker and Xbox homeshare players being unable to access STW.

However, as leaker iFireMonkey points out, these are not guaranteed to ship with the v14.30 update and could be coming later down the line. We’ll just have to wait and see.
