The second teaser image for Fortnite Season 7 was released on Tuesday, December 4, providing fans with yet another hint about what to expect.

The second teaser image was released shortly after word began to spread about snow falling on Spawn Island – an occurrence that finally confirms that Winter is coming!

The November 4 teaser shows what looks to be another mysterious character skiing or snowboarding down a snowy slope and comes with the caption: “A frigid day dawns… 2 days to Season 7.”

We’re not entirely sure what to make of the image, but the snowboard might not be the only method of transport that it is hinting at!

If you look closely at the smaller character in the picture, it’s hard to tell whether he is falling or riding a zip line! This might not be as far-fetched as you imagine, because leaks from August actually predicted zip lines being added to the game along with grappling hooks.

The larger character, which Epic Games’ Donald Mustard has confirmed is a female skin of some sort, also seems to be the smaller outfit from the first teaser that has now been zoomed in on.

Epic GamesThe small character from the first teaser appears to have been enlarged for teaser two.

If that assumption about zooming in proves to be true, we could  potentially find out more about the falling/zip-lining character tomorrow, December 5, when the third teaser image will presumably be revealed.

Speculation about what the upcoming season will have in store reached fever pitch on Monday, December 3, when Epic Games finally shared the first teaser image on Twitter.

Many players have been predicting some sort of winter or snow theme for the Christmas months, and the first teaser image certainly seemed to support that theory, showing an icy silhouette of what we believe will be the Season 7 tier 100 skin for Battle Pass owners.

There have been multiple leaks that also support the idea that the entire map will be engulfed with snow or ice when Season 6 comes to an end and Season 7 begins.

There are also a number of in-game hints, like the iceberg on the south coast of the map or the cold breath that can be seen escaping from the lips of characters when you zoom in close enough.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
