The Fortnite FNCS Solos event has come to a close in Chapter 2, Season 2 with a number of big names being pipped to top spot. Here, we’ve got a recap and final standings for each region. 

Back on April 24, Epic Games announced that they would hold a different Fortnite Championship Series event than normal – giving this newest installment a $2,000,000 prize pool and tag of being an invitational.

Over the weeks, Fortnite pros have done battle with each other and a select number of invited players in order to claim some pretty sweet prizes, with each week leading to the Grand Finals. Though, things didn’t go as expected for a number of fan-favorite players. 

FNCS Invitational Europe leaderboard

Benjyfishy had gone back to back in the two weeks leading up to the Grand Finals, however, the NRG star was dethroned at the top of the European leaderboard. Instead, the top prize went to JannisZ as he racked up 254 points – winning one game and amassing 19 total kills.

The 15-year-old pro made waves with his win, beating out second-placed Wolfiez by 20 points. 100 Thieves’ MrSavage once again finished inside the top 20 – coming in at 15th with a total of 154 points. Benjyfishy, however, only managed to finish in 57th place with a lowly 74 points.

FNCS Invitational NA East leaderboard

As the focus switched to NA East, controller star Furious went on an elimination spree that saw him quickly leap up the standings and claim victory. With a total of 217 points, Furious finished 20 points ahead of second-placed Assault. 

Furious had finished in second place back in week two behind Roller – though he only managed a 44th place finish in the Grand Finals. Week one winner Commandment finished just shy of the Top 20, while popular players Zayt, Bizzle, Khanada, and Scoped finished in ninth, 12th, third, and sixth respectively.

FNCS Invitational NA West leaderboard

In NA West, it was all about 100 Thieves as Arkhram blew everyone away to claim the top spot – finishing 73 points clear of second place. His teammate Rehx even managed to finish inside the top ten in seventh place.

NRG’s EpikWhale, who had won the second week, managed to pip Rehx to sixth place while week one winner and week two runner-up wаvуjaсob finished in 57th. In a surprising twist, NBA 2K streamer LosPollos TV managed to finish in 20th with 22 total eliminations.

Aside from those three regions, there were also Grand Finals for Brazil, Asia, Oceania, and the Middle East. In Brazil, Frosty completed the clean sweep by adding a grand final crown to his two weekly victories.

Qjappy was promoted to top spot in the Asian event as the would-be winner Sekosama was banned following cheating claims. x2Twins’ Jordan pipped Apu on a Bicycle to victory in Oceania, while ASMR KiritoKun finished in first place in the Middle East.

While the Fortnite Championship Series usually switches format, that isn’t set to be the case moving into Chapter 2, Season 3.

The format is set to stick with the solos event, however, a date hasn’t been set in stone so we’ll just have to wait and see as to what Epic Games announces.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
