A return to solos received a mixed reception from pros this FNCS season, however many new faces rose to the top as some of the most mechanically gifted Fortnite players across the world.

With $5,000,000 on the line across all regions, including upwards of $50,000 for winning in North America and Europe, there was everything to play for.

However, while some favorites managed to live up to their standards, there were upsets galore that threw the power rankings into chaos.

TaySon clutches 12-kill victory to win FNCS Season 3 Europe

AyarBaffo rounded out the podium in third, pulling ahead of Hen in fourth thanks to his victory in the final game. Big favorite to win rezon finished in seventh, while Mongraal (16th), MrSavage (57th), and Benjyfishy (59th) failed to make it into the top 10.

Coop causes upset in FNCS Season 3 NAE, Bugha 4th

Optimal Ambitions’ Coop has stunned the NA-East competition, claiming a huge upset in one of the most competitive regions in the world.

Despite not winning a single game, consistency was Coop’s key. He placed in the top 10 in three of the six games, and had the highest average eliminations at 3.17. He only failed to find a kill in the final game, but Klass’ two-kill 16th place in the lobby wasn’t enough to overtake him.

Xccept rounded out the podium in third, while 2019 World Cup Solos champion Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf finished in fourth, pocketing an extra $25,000 for himself.

Other favorites like Clix (27th), Stretched (91st), and Khanada (96th) weren’t so lucky ⁠— with the latter not even getting a kill across the four games he played.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
