Fortnite World Cup duo winners David ‘Aqua’ W and Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist Pedersen have surprisingly announced that they will be splitting up and seeking out new partners for future events. 

After months of anticipation, the Fortnite World Cup finally happened in New York on July 26-28. Over $30 million in prize money was given away across the Creative World Cup, Pro-Am, solos, and duos events. 

Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf was able to succeed without any help to scoop up the $3 million grand prize in solo play with his stunning skills, yet the duos competition was more tightly contested. While european partners Aqua and Nyhrox came out as the victors, their run at the top has already come to an end.

Epic GamesThe European pair came out as duos winners with 51 total points.

In the early hours of Friday, August 2, Aqua tweeted out that he would be partnering with Klaus ‘stompy’ Konstanzer for the next duos tournament – whenever that may be. 

Unsurprisingly, fans were stunned and upset by the news, prompting the Austrian to post follow up tweets like “Statement?” and “Looking really bad me for me,” before dropping a TwitLonger about the switch.

“I started this whole thing wrong and never meant to send hate to Nyhrox or anyone,” he stated. “Nyhrox and I have been playing for a long time and we won (the) World Cup, yes, but that doesn’t mean we are the best duo or I (couldn’t) improve more with someone else.”

The young Fortnite star continued on, explaining how he’d been considering the move for some time. “I feel like stompy and I fit each other better and Nyhrox and I have been talking about this for longer as well,” he added. “Sorry for the ‘beef’ on Twitter, I never meant to hurt anyone. Nyhrox and I are friends and I wish him the best of luck in the future.”

Aqua’s full TwitLonger statement.

Nyhrox himself has not revealed who he will be partnering with moving forward, but he will no longer represent the COOLER team after becoming a free agent.

It remains to be seen if the former partners made the right decision in going their separate ways, or if they should have waited to see if they could have expanded on their World Cup glory.

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.
