The first ever official Fortnite trios tournament is just around the corner – here are all the teams confirmed to be playing so far.

Prior to taking a two-week summer break, Epic Games announced that the first trio tournament in Fortnite history would take place on July 13-14, just weeks before the $30 million World Cup in New York City.

While trios have been in Fortnite before, it has never been adapted to the Arena Mode, where the siphon mechanic is present as well as an increased harvesting rate. 

So, here are all the confirmed teams believed to be competing so far…

Mongraal – Benjyfishy – MrSavageM

INSTAGRAM:MONGRAALMongraal and Benjyfishy are two of the best mechanical players.

Considered one of the early favorites for the entire tournament, three of the best players in EU will partner up. New FaZe recruit Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson links with with NRG duo Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish and Martin ‘MrSavageM’ Anderson.

All three qualified the World Cup on multiple occasions and could be a force to be reckoned with.

Tfue – Cloak – 72hrs

INSTAGRAM:TFUETfue and Cloak didn’t reach the World Cup duos event.

Despite not qualifying for the World Cup duo event, popular duo Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore will be hoping for better luck in the trios tournament alongside Team Liquid’s Thomas ‘72hrs’ Mulligan.

72hrs also failed to secure a spot in New York and hinted he would be trying out multiple trio partners, until he finds the right fit.

Aqua – Stompy – Tschinken

E11Stompy and Tschinken were unstoppable at times.

No team performed better in the World Cup qualifiers than Eleven Gaming duo Klaus ‘Stompy’ Konstanzer and Thomas ‘Tschinken’ Horak, finishing in the top three teams every week in the EU region.

Add in solo and duo qualified Aqua, they are rightly among the favorites to win the entire tournament.

Bizzle – Zayt – Saf

ESLSaf and Zayt reigned supreme at ESL Katowice.

Three of competitive Fortnite’s most dominant players will trio together after Ghost Gaming’s Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller announced he would join forces with fellow Ghost star Rocco ‘Saf’ Morales and NRG Esports’ William ‘Zayt’ Aubin.

Given their prowess as a duo, as well as Bizzle’s solo ability, this should also be a team to watch.

Chap – Cizlucky – Brush

YT:TEAM LIQUIDChap couldn’t put it all together in qualifiers.

After struggling in the qualifiers alongside his Liquid teammate Poach, Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo won’t be partnering with anyone from his org, instead joining Tempo Storm pro players Chris ‘Cizlucky’ Perez and Craig ‘Brush’ Hechmer.

The trio have been practicing relentlessly and their similar playstyles mean they should perform well.

NICKMERCS – Nio Rooch – SypherPK

Sypher and NICKMERCS regularly team up in Fortnite.

Controller duo Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and ‘NioRooch’ revealed they will be teaming with Luminosity Gaming’s Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan due to their chemistry while playing duos together.

Sypher’s quick editing and trademark trap plays should combine well with two of the best controller players in the world.

Aspect – Bugha – Animal

TWITTER:SENTINELSAspect and Animal are one of NA’s top duos.

World Cup qualifiers Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf and Nick ‘Aspect’ Maguire will partner fellow Sentinels teammate Owen ‘Animal’ Wright – who was tipped as a favorite for the $30m tournament.

Despite failing to qualify, Animal will be looking to bounce back with a strong performance alongside two players he knows better than anyone.

Dubs – Megga – Clix

FAZE CLANDubs and Megga joined FaZe after performing well in qualifiers.

FaZe Clan stars Danny ‘Dubs’ Walsh and ‘Megga’ are considered two of the best players in the world after blowing the competition away in the World Cup qualifiers.

To make things even worse for their opponents, they will team with Misfits star Cody ‘Clix’ Conrad – who is also qualified for both solos and duos – meaning they one of the scariest teams currently formed.

Khuna – Jarvis – Issa

TWITTER:JARVISFaZe Jarvis almost qualified on controller.

As two of the best controller players in the scene, FaZe Clan’s Jarvis ‘Jarvis’ Kaye and Ghost Gaming’s Issa ‘Issa’ Rahim have an excellent chance of placing highly as they team with Team Atlantis star Dino ‘Khuna’ Smirko.

With all players having fantastic aim and mechanical skill, expect them to cause havoc.

Ceice – Elevate – Riversan

WSOECeice and Elevate won the WSOE duos event.

100 Thieves veteran Davis ‘Ceice’ McClellan joins his teammate Hayden ‘Elevate’ Krueger as well as the newest Team Liquid recruit River ‘Riversan’ Handley to form an extremely confident NAE line up.

All players know what it takes to compete among the best players in the world so should have no issues dealing with the level of competition on offer.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
