The Fortnite Championship Series, or FNCS for short, has started back up again in Chapter 2, Season 3 with a solos event. Here’s what you need to know about who has qualified. 

Each time the FNCS swings back into town, Epic Games tweaks the format to keep Fortnite players on their toes. After trios, squads, and duos all got their moment in the spotlight, the devs have brought back solos.

Though, getting a slice of the huge $5,000,000 prize pool isn’t easy even for the world’s best players. It’s a huge grind to get through the qualifiers, move to to the heats, and then work your way into the final.

With the qualifiers now wrapped up, which one of your favorites made or missed the cut? Here’s what you need to know.

Solos is the main format again in the FNCS.

FNCS Solos Europe qualified players

In Europe, top players like Benjyfishy, MrSavage, Mongraal, and teeq all managed to punch their tickets to the next round after finishing inside the top 50 of the first round of qualifiers. 

Despite finishing tenth in the first qualifier, Benjyfishy continued on in the second day of matches and ended up as the top player on day two. While Benjy was on for a potential first-place, he fell short after a 67th place finish in the fourth qualifier. German player Rezon instead took home first.

MrSavage, Mongraal, and Teeq all qualified comfortably in the top 20. Danish player Th0masHD was the only player to place top 50 in all four qualifiers though, with his consistency going to be a big thing to watch out for when Heats start up.

FNCS Solos NA East qualified players

In NA East, the big names, again, got their chance to shine. TSM’s Khanada, 100 Thieves’ Ceice, Team Liquid’s STRETCH, and BBG Bucke all managed to grab a spot in the next round thanks to their performances. Khanada himself managed to snatch first place over mero.

Inaugural Fortnite World Cup solos winner Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf also had a solid showing despite his slow start. The Sentinels star had a lackluster first qualifying session but answered back with a strong second-place finish in round two, and two top-20’s in round three and four.

FNCS Solos NA West qualified players

While there was a bit of a cheating scandal on the final day, everyone who was expected to qualify in NA West did. Favorites EpikWhale and Arkhram managed to secure their spots with ease, with both players finishing in the top five.

Maken made a statement however, with four top 10 finishes across the four weeks. While he didn’t end up taking home a win for himself, as it is with these events, consistency is key. Keep an eye out for them in the finals.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
