Two console Fortnite players used the new cross-platform ability to set a new duo world record while playing on both Xbox One and PS4, beating the previous record by three kills.

Just days after the record for duo vs squads on mobile was beaten, another Fortnite world record has been set, this time on console, also for duo vs squads.

The previous duo vs squad console record was set by Toonnah and HaslamN, who both racked up 20 each, holding the 40 kill record since June.

But their record has now been beaten, and beaten convincingly, as Xbox player JHawk (XBL: I3usty) and PS4 player EthanPlants (PSN: WhereYallBeenAt), have now managed 43 kills in a quads match.

Their record means that both the PC and Console record for duo vs squads is the exact same, as PC players Teeqzy and Nokks also managed 43, back in June 2018.

You can watch the full record breaking match from EthanPlants perspective below, as he racked up 20 of the 43 kills:

There is also the end game from the perspective of his partner JHawk, who got the other 23 kills needed for the world record. This video also shows the final game ending screen, to verify the record.

Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
