Ghost Gaming’s pro Fortnite Battle Royale team has found itself in the headlines once again as one of their players has managed to set a new world record.

Liam ‘Kamo’ Fillery, one of several controller players on Ghost’s roster, has managed to get 46 eliminations, setting a new world record for a solo player in a Squads lobby.

The previous record was held by Teeqzy, a pro player with Millenium Salty at the time, who had managed to get 43 eliminations way back in April of 2018.

The German-born Kamo tweeted out his incredible feat on February 18, not even sure himself whether he’d set a world record or not: “46 kills, I think now I got the world record.”

What adds the cherry on the top is that he managed to get the Victory Royale, which is not always the case when it comes to record-setting performances in Fortnite. 

It’s hard to point out what is the most remarkable thing about this new world record. The fact that he got 46 eliminations, a whopping three more than the previous record, is pretty impressive.

Although he was using a controller, he was playing with it plugged into his PC, which debunks the argument that he may have been up against weaker opposition on console. 

What’s more is that he apparently did it in his first game on of the day, while not even using his own controller: “First game on by the way, with my brother’s controller because mine is broken.”

Kamo’s world record is one of several that have been set over the past few days, and it’s no coincidence that records have been getting broken left and right since the release of the massive v7.40 patch update on February 14.

The update is well known for adding the format used in Pop-Up Cups to the core default modes, which means players get +50 health or shield, as well as materials, after every elimination.

Since the update, there are three long-standing Fortnite records that have been broken, including FaZe Clan’s Thiefs and his partner Webs setting the new Duos vs Squads elimination mark

Kamo setting a new record is the latest moment of prominence for Ghost Gaming, whose Fortnite team has been at its peak over the past week.

During the two-day $500,000 Secret Skirmish competition held February 14-15, Ghost had a combined six players in the top ten of both the Solo and Duos tournaments, with Saf winning the Duos and Bizzle coming in first in the Solo.

You can keep updated on all of the record, by visiting our Fortnite world records hub, which has been updated to reflect all of the current world records.

Do you think the changes introduced in the v7.40 update is a major reason why so many records are being broken? Let us know your thoughts by tweeting us @Dexerto!

Fortnite has been teasing the arrival of a Predator skin throughout Season 5, and now he’s finally arrived on The Island. Here’s how to unlock his skin.

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced a number of exciting crossover skins to tie in with its ‘bounty hunter’ theme, including The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and Halo’s Master Chief. So what’s next? Well, it’s the Predator’s turn now.

The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 movie Predator and went on to spawn a massive franchise of sequels and spin-offs. He’s easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.

There have been plenty of hints about Predator’s arrival already given throughout Season 5, including the alien warrior’s logo appearing on a door, a helicopter crash site, and a truck being used as a generator like in the movie.

It’s now been confirmed that Predator has landed in Fortnite, and fans are pretty hyped for his arrival. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the skin so you can use it yourself.

How to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite

Following the v15.21 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which is where you can view the Jungle Hunter Quests that need to be completed to unlock Predator cosmetics.

As you can see in the Battle Pass menu below, unlocking the Predator skin requires you to complete one very challenging task: Defeat Predator. This won’t be easy, and it’s recommended you do it in Squads to get some support.

To defeat Predator, you’ll need to head to Stealthy Stronghold and locate him. He’s incredibly agile and will utilize his Cloaking Device to turn almost invisible, so taking him down will be a very difficult task.

There will also be plenty of other players trying to complete this challenge and unlock Predator, so it’s going to be mayhem. We’ve put together a guide to defeating Predator that might help you in your mission.

How to unlock Predator emote, back bling & pickaxe

As well as the Predator skin, players with the Battle Pass can unlock a Yautja Wristblades pickaxe, a Hunter’s Trophy back bling, The Hunt loading screen, a Bio-Helmet Online emote, and a Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap.

Here are the Jungle Hunter Quests you’ll need to complete to unlock them all:

  • Find mysterious pod (Banner Icon)
  • Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy (Logo Emote)
  • Collect Medkits (Graffiti Spray)
  • Collect Legendary Weapons or rarer (Loading Screen)
  • Defeat Predator (Predator Skin)
  • Complete a Bounty as Predator (Hunter’s Trophy Back Bling)
  • Visit Predator’s apartment in Hunter’s Haven as Predator (Bio-Helmet Online Emote)
  • Spend 30 seconds within 10 meters of a player as Predator (Yautja Wristblades Pickaxe)
  • Deal damage while thermal is active as Predator (Hunter’s Arsenal Weapon Wrap)

The Bio-Helmet Online emote in particular is one you’ll definitely want to unlock, as it allows the player to remove Predator’s mask and reveal the horrifying face underneath.

We have a feeling this will become a fan favorite in Fortnite very quickly.
