The fifth and penultimate week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition series continues with the mid-week Trials, which features a challenge called Trap Ball.

Trap Ball is a tournament style challenge which features players from all five Clubs sorted into a 256 person single elimination bracket.

Each match of the competition features two players from different Clubs, who will need to party up and queue into the Playground mode of Fortnite.

The premise of the competition is simple – the two players need to find and activate a ‘Spiky Stadium’ item, loot up on plenty of Impulse Grenades, and then try to eliminate each other within the arena.

Players can only use Impulse Grenades and nothing else; shooting, building, using shields, or exiting the arena is not allowed. A player is considered eliminated if they are downed by one of the Stadium’s traps, knocked out of the arena’s boundaries, leave the arena, or break any of the rules.

Although the tournament is not being live-streamed on the official Fortnite Twitch channel, Epic Games have still provided the tournament brackets for both the North American and European regions, which can be found below:



Although the players’ progress can be seen in each region’s bracket, the winners and final placements will not be officially announced until both region has completed their turn of the competition.

About the Fall Skirmish

The Fall Skirmish is a set of Fortnite competitions that are played over a six week period, with a total of $10 million in prizes awarded throughout.

Each week’s competition features two portions – a competitive tournament that is played every Friday, and weekly trials that are held throughout the week.

In both halves of the competition, players are awarded both prizes and points, which go towards their respective Clubs. Members of each Club will also receive a prize after the Fall Skirmish fully concludes, based on how well their Club placed at the end of the series.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
