The world record for eliminations in Fortnite PC duos matches has finally been broken, four months after the previous record was set.

The previous record of 48, set back in May, was an incredible accomplishment, seeing the team take down almost 50% of all the players in the lobby in one match, and seemed almost impossible to beat.

With the marker laid down, duo Dankline and diddytheboy have absolutely crushed the challenge, taking down 51 players in a single match to claim their place at the top of the world rankings.

For those who would like to see how the pair did it, diddytheboy uploaded the full 10 minute gameplay to YouTube, intersplicing gameplay from each player’s view to ensure that viewers can see every kill the duo found in this incredible game.

The game’s Combat Shotgun was the weapon of choice for most of the kills found in this match, although the Burst SMG was also used to great effect by Darkline in the early portions of the match.

The duo split up to ensure they could find the eliminations they needed, with diddytheboy heading to Salty Springs, while Dankline went straight to the always-busy Neo Tilted.

What makes their incredible game even more impressive is the fact that diddytheboy was eliminated towards the end of the match, leaving Danklingin all alone against 6 other players, who he duly brushed aside to secure the Victory Royale.

The pair were clearly happy to have set the world record, claiming that it was “nuts” while they laughed at the magnitude of their accomplishment.

To the best of our knowledge, this match sends Dankline and diddytheboy straight to the top of the World Records, although a number of other records has higher kills, such as duos vs squads. You can check out all the records in our Fortnite World Record hub.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
