The winner of the Fortnite World Cup was able to bring home $3 million, surpassing the totals of tournaments like Wimbledon, The Masters and the PGA Championship.

Tiger Woods, Novak Djokovic, and Brooks Koepka are some the biggest names in their respective sports and millions tune in to watch them perform each time they compete.

However, that didn’t stop 16-year-old Fortnite phenom Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf from coming in as a relatively unknown player and taking home the coveted grand prize.

ESPN posted a graphic revealing that Bugha’s prize was bigger than many major tournament wins in 2019, some of them by a huge margin.

Tiger Woods was only able to bring home a little over $2 million in his Masters win in April, which was a monumental milestone for the golf pro as it was his first Major championship since 2008’s U.S. Open.

For those out there who are unaware of the draw that esports has, seeing this graphic comparing the prize winnings can be jaw-dropping.

Fortnite boasted the largest prize pool seen in esports at the time of the World Cup and Epic will hope to keep that rolling into the inevitable second World Cup. Keep in mind that most other esports don’t come to a prize pool this large.

On top of this, the prize money won’t stop coming for Fortnite players despite the World Cup being finished.

During the July 28 broadcast, Epic Games announced the competitive circuit coming to the game in Season 10 called the Fortnite Championship series.

This new series will run the length of the season and let fans once again prove to their competitors who the best Fortnite players are.

Epic haven’t revealed a whole lot about how this series will work but it’s clear they are interested in keeping esports alive and consistently increasing the prize pool.

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.
