Fortnite World Cup winner Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf has revealed that he’s looking for a new squad for the FNCS, but he does have one condition.

After the success of the Fortite Championship Series in Season 10, Epic Games decided to switch things up ahead of Chapter 2 – giving their popular battle royale a better road map for competitive play and changing the format.

The previous season saw players compete in solos, duos, and trios events, but for Chapter 2, the focus has moved to squads – meaning players have had to assemble four-player teams. A number of teams have already been confirmed, including Bugha’s initial line-up, but he appears to be in need of a change of teammates before the competition gets underway.

Epic GamesBugha captured solo glory at the inaugural Fortnite World Cup.

The Fortnite World Cup winner had been down as playing alongside Stretched, Zayt, and Saf – with the squad practicing together against other professional squads – but Bugha will be taking his own path moving forward. 

On October 21, the Fortnite star tweeted out that he was now on the lookout for a team as a solo player, giving him a clean break from his original line-up. However, anyone that wants to pick the highly-talented Sentiels professional up would have to be “comfortable with streaming.”

While plenty of fans were shocked at the move, a number of Bugha’s fellow Fortnite pros couldn’t help but pull out some jokes.

FaZe Clan’s Nate ‘Nate Hill’ Hill jokingly asked the 16-year-old about his best placements, while Team SoloMid’s Slappie wanted to know about his earnings before picking him up. 

Of course, with the annoucement of a top-class player like Bugha hitting the open market for the squads event, it could throw other teams’ plans into jeopardy. 

It remains to be seen who’ll be dropping out of the battle bus with moving forward, but they’ll have to be quick considering the warm-up event kicks off on October 25.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
