For the first time since August 17, The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back and Week 1 has already come to a close. We’ve got you covered with a full rundown on the first round of competition.
FNCS finally made its return in Chapter 2 Season 4 with Trios competition taking center stage. The opening round of action kicked off on October 9 and just wrapped up on October 11.
From World Cup winner Bugha, to Clix, Reverse2k, and plenty of others, all the biggest names were lined up to compete. It was a stacked list of former event winners and notable qualifiers that pushed through to the top of the pack.
Only one trio could emerge as the first winners this season, however. Here’s a full recap on how things played out and who came away with the lion’s share of $36,855.

What started out with thousands of teams in the first round, quickly dwindled to just the top 1,000. These elite players all battled it out in round two, but only 33 trios could make it through to the final stage. It’s here where the difficulty was ramped up a notch. Across the final two days of action, teams have 12 games to play. The team with the most points at the end of it all was crowned the winner.
Given just how stacked the lobbies were, map wins were extremely hard to come by. Even teams among the top 10 barely finished with more than one or two map wins in total. It was eliminations that made all the difference in Week 1 of the FNCS tournament.
The gap between the very top teams was extraordinarily close as first and second place was decided by just six kills. Ultimately, Bucke, Khanada, and Kreo walked away with 250 points to seal the deal and take home $7,500.
Just behind them was Bugha, Avery, and Jamper. A few different team fights and the results could have been completely different. Expect each week of this tournament to be just as intense as the last.

FNCS Chapter 2 Season 4 NA West results
On the other side of the opening round, Week 1 was far more lopsided. Arkhram, rehx, and EpikWhale blitzed through the opposition with a whopping 276 points. Three wins put them ahead of any Eastern team in the Top 15, though their average kills ended much higher as well.
The second best trio was 52 points lower in the standing without an overall map win to show for their efforts. The remainder of the Top 10 was relatively close, though it appeared no one could hold a candle to the Top 3 teams this time around.
