The first major breakup of the Fortnite World Cup has been revealed as Cody ‘Clix’ Conrod and Griffin ‘Sceptic’ Spikoski announced they are going their separate ways while taking some parting shots at each other.

Clix and Sceptic were a duo that a lot of viewers had their eyes on going into the World Cup as both of them are immensely talented Fortnite players.

However, the duo finished in 35th place out of 50, and while they were able to secure $100,000, it’s clear they both felt they could do better.

Epic GamesIt seems like the Fortnite World Cup ruined a friendship.

Shortly after the World Cup concluded, both players announced they were splitting up. However, neither player could avoid taking jabs at the other and it’s created a rift of sorts between the fans of both players.

Clix tweeted on July 28 that he was looking for a new duo and said there was no bad blood between him and Sceptic.

“I’m looking for a new duo to play in all future duo events, feel free to dm me on Twitter,” he tweeted. “Likes and RT’s appreciated (no hate to sceptic, he’s the homie)”

That was just the beginning of it as just a couple minutes after that tweet came out, Sceptic posted a similar message but took a shot with it as well.

“I split with Clix, looking for a new duo that believes in teamwork and chemistry,” Sceptic said. 

Those are strong shots at a fellow player, especially in Fortnite where teamwork and chemistry are key to becoming a successful duo.

As expected, Clix didn’t take this well, but said he’s going to remain mature about it.

“I’m going to stay mature with this split, I don’t want to add attention to it,” he said. “I know my true fans will always support me, I’m just trying to the right/best thing for me as a player. Thanks guys.”

A screenshot of an alleged deleted tweet revealed that Clix had a quick change of pace from calling Sceptic out to taking the high road.

“I’m super disappointed with how Sceptic is acting, I’m being super mature about this duo situation but obviously Sceptic isn’t taking it the right way,” reads the alleged tweet. “Maybe you should say fucking congrats instead of blocking me on every social media Sceptic. I’m sorry, I’m just losing my patience.”

Clix had some spicy words in a now deleted tweet.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear to have been a clean split between the two and now there’s a good chance that the drama surrounding the situation won’t end here.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
