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.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
