Fortnite‘s world record for Solo vs Squads kills on console has been smashed yet again in astonishing fashion, this time by PlayStation 4 player Apokalypto.

The player uploaded a video of his achievement to his official YouTube channel on February 22, 2019 and seems to have eclipsed the previous record held by French player FT-Fateu, who picked up 38 eliminations, way back in April 2018.

The solo vs squad record was actually credited to Brazilian player SlayLeo, who managed 41 kills, but Apokalypto went one step further, managing 42 – and it could very well have been more.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite player fended off squad after squad in this world record attempt.

We previously reported that SlayLeo’s was a brand new record on March 6, but that wasn’t actually the case, given that Apokalypto had pulled off this game a matter of weeks before.

It could have been even more eliminations for Apokalypto as well, as the footage shows below, with the final two squad teammates being eliminated by storm damage.

Even more impressive is that the game only started with 94 players, six less than the maximum.

The PS4 gamer primarily used the Epic Scar and Legendary Pump Shotgun to mastermind the world record – two of the most popular weapons in the battle royale mode. 

World records for Epic Games’ free-to-play title have been moving thick and fast since the game was released in September 2017 and you can keep track of them using our Fortnite world record hub. 

We will continue to keep you updated on all of the changes to these achievements for console, PC and mobile in the future.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
