The world record for Squads eliminations in a Fortnite match on PC has been broken, and it was done so during the Fall Skirmish competition series.

A squad featuring FaZe Clan pro player SpaceLyon, FaZe Director Replays, popular YouTuber NickEh30, and free agent competitive player TurkeyLips managed to put together 56 eliminations, without team killing, to set the new world record.

They beat the previous ‘no team kill’ PC world record of 54 eliminations, which was set by 100 Thieves’ pro Fortnite team earlier in September.

According to the final scoreboard, the elimination breakdown went as follows: Replays (18), TurkeyLips (16), NickEh30 (13), and SpaceLyon (9).

All four players tweeted excitedly about their amazing accomplishment, which was documented on both SpaceLyon’s and Replays’ streams.

This record-breaking performance took place as the four were completing their weekly Fall Skirmish trials known as Squads Goals, in which players from the same Club team up to get as many eliminations as possible.

The 56 eliminations are sure to earn some serious points for the Lucky Llamas club, who currently sit in last place in the Club standings after week one, with just 275 points.

While other teams have managed to get 56 kills in a single match before, no one had done it without team killing prior to now.

Although friendly fire is disabled in Fortnite Battle Royale, teammates can still use the environment to eliminate each other and award themselves an extra kill. 

Nowadays, world record bids with no team killing are prioritized over ones that exploit that glitch, which is why this group’s effort is the new PC Squads kill record.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
