Fortnite world records are made to be broken, and the crown for most eliminations by a trio in a squad match has finally changed hands for the first time since June 2019. 

Fortnite players are constantly trying to find eliminations in the popular battle royale title, as they attempt to win matches and secure Victory Royales. Sometimes, in the pursuit of success, players can even etch their name into the history books. 

That’s what happened for a trio of Belgian players — Paragon-Hunter, Dhont_Eli, and NoiDestroy — on PS4, who dominated their opponents in a squad match to take their place at the top of the tree for eliminations against teams of four.

Epic GamesGotham was the home of many eliminations for this world record.

The squad got off to a hot start at the very beginning in the match by landing in the Gotham City rift zone and quickly laying waste to all the opponents there.

By the time they moved out of Gotham, they had already racked up 29 eliminations.  The team then moved into Loot Lake, which ended up being their last rotation and the game concluded with the team claiming 50 eliminations total.

In doing so, this squad was able to beat the previous Trios vs. Squads world record by one, making them the new record holders.

Records are made to be broken, but it seems like this one will be a tough one to top – but people thought the same with the previous one as well.

Getting 50 eliminations in a match is nothing to scoff at, especially when you consider it’s half the lobby in a game.

The real eye-opener in this is the squad was able to do it with just three people, which means they went against full squads while being down a person.

Dhont_Eli finished with 13 eliminations, NoiDestroy with 21, and Paragon-Hunter had 16, helping them eke just past the record.

We’re always looking for Fortnite world records, so if you think you’ve set one, feel free to reach out with your proof and we’ll update our information accordingly.

Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
