The 100,000 elimination mark in Fortnite Battle Royale has been surpassed for only the second time ever, and the first time by a console player so far. 

Fortnite streamer ‘Ship,’ whose official Epic Games account name is ‘Shipings,’ reached the mark on January 31 after months and months of hard work and dedication.


He currently sits at 101,003 eliminations, according to popular statistics database Fortnite Tracker, which is good enough for second behind Team SoloMid streamer ‘HighDistortion.’

While HD may be first overall, Ship is far and ahead the first when it comes to console players, as he’s accumulated all of his stats while primarily playing on the Xbox One.


He has considerably way more eliminations than the second console player on that list, ‘No llmlt soulja,’ who currently sits at sixth overall with nearly 88,500 kills on the Xbox One.

Ship’s lifetime stats are very impressive, as he has a 8.75 kill/death ratio and 6,193 Victory Royales, which is good enough for fourth on console.

It’s also worth noting that he has almost the same amount of eliminations as HD, despite having played nearly 800 matches less overall. 


His Season 7 accomplishments are even more remarkable, as he’s managed to reach a 10.26 K/D, a 38% win rate, and 1208 Victory Royales, all while getting 20,225 eliminations so far. 

Ship becoming the second player ever to hit 100K eliminations is a slightly surprising development since many were expecting superstar streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to have been the next player to reach that mark.

Ninja was on top of the leaderboards for much the last few months until he ultimately gave up his mantle to HighDistortion, who became the first to eclipse the six-digit mark.


Still, many believed it would have been Ninja who would hit 100K right after him, but the celebrity gamer is currently third with 98,680 eliminations and has not been playing much lately to pad his stats.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
