The world record for eliminations in a duos vs squads setting in Fortnite Battle Royale has been beaten – by players using a controller on PC.

In a victory for controller players, the record which was once held by streamers Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, was bested by only a single kill.

Ninja and Sypher’s record of 43 was first beaten by French players Nayte and Spk, who took the record to 46 eliminations total – but this has once again been surpassed.

The duo of ‘ImClutchPlayz’ and ‘iMrSharpShooter’, both using an Xbox One controller on PC, have taken on the duos vs squads record challenge, and pipped the previous holders by a single elimination.

The duo were in fact denied the chance to beat it by two kills, after one of the new Ice Legion monsters stole the final opponent away from them.

Regardless, 47 was enough to take the record on PC – although the console record is still held at 48, by Larsinz and distncee.

PC players with a keyboard and mouse might be encouraged to take this record on – in an attempt to prove that controller is the inferior way to play, but right now, these controller masters have them beaten.

Fortnite developer Donald Mustard hid some clues towards future content in the background of his zoom call today and a conveniently-placed G.I Joe figurine has convinced some players a collaboration could be on the cards.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration and innovation. It’s a game that knows no bounds and has collided with other characters and universes including Batman, John Wick, Marvel, and Star Wars.

Donald Mustard, the Creative Director at Epic Games, has been busy dropping hints towards future content in recent weeks. In an interview on Marvel’s ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast, he let it slip that Fortnite and Marvel would be crossing paths time and time again.

However, it seems like that isn’t all he’s got planned. Earlier today, he took part in a zoom interview with video-game journalist Geoff Keighley and dropped some hints towards future content in a creative way.

Donald Mustard used a webcam during the Zoom call. Naturally, that means viewers could see the room he was in. However, instead of covering things up left, right, and center, he embraced it and decided to play a game — the madman scattered clues hinting towards future content around the room.

“That was SO fun and SO inspiring!” he said. “Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…” he added.

Fortnite players were quick to pounce and look for clues. There were lots of bits and pieces in the shot, including a couch, a desk, an exercise bike, and paintings on the wall.

However, one item stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s gained traction on social media and convinced many Fortnite might cross paths with another popular American hero, G.I Joe.

There’s a lot of stuff hidden in the background, including a poster to Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, only one thing sticks out like a sore thumb; a boxed figure of ‘Snake Eyes’ from revived franchise G.I Joe.

Snake Eyes is an important member of the G.I Joe Team. He’s also one of the most popular characters in the story and has been involved in the story behind every G.I Joe movie and series.

Interestingly, a spin-off film dedicated entirely to him called ‘Snake Eyes’ is reportedly on the cards for production in 2021. If anything, it makes a potential Fortnite and G.I Joe collaboration all-the-more believable.

However, not everyone is convinced. Some players hope and believe Fortnite will cross paths with Star Trek instead.

It’s also possible that both of them will come into play at separate points in time. After all, Donald Mustard himself multiple clues were hidden in the background.

Either way, the hype is real, and players can’t wait to see what’s happening next in Fortnite. And, while we wait, there’s still plenty of Marvel content to enjoy too.
