The July 12 running of Friday Fortnite has now concluded, with FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill and Funk beating their org-mates Dubs and Megga to finish in first place.

This week’s running of Friday Fortnite was the fifth since the competition was brought back at the end of May following its year-long hiatus.

You can find a full recap of the tournament below, including a recap of the grand final, highlights of top plays, the final placements, and more. 

Grand Final recap and highlights

Thanks to the fact that they came into the grand final having won the Winners Bracket, Nate Hill and Funk had the huge advantage of having to only win one series, while Dubs and Megga had to win both.

While everyone expected this final to be an intense affair, since all four players had previously qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, the first map saw Dubs and Megga shockingly go down early, giving their opponents the rest of the match to try and build a lead.

And build they did, as Nate Hill went on one of his typically relentless runs, helping Funk clear out the lobby and take a whopping 28-5 lead going into map two.

Facing a virtually insurmountable lead, Dubs and Megga were forced to play as aggressively as possible, opting to land at the usually-busy Paradise Palms.

Unfortunately, their plan backfired, as the two were eliminated just moments after landing, crowning their FaZe teammates Nate Hill and Funk Friday Fortnite week five champions.

How does Friday Fortnite work?

Friday Fortnite is a weekly tournament that brings together some of the biggest content creators and pro players of the online gaming community, sometimes even featuring celebrities and athletes.

The tournament is double-elimination, and uses the exciting ‘total of two’ and ‘bot race’ format. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.

After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match is played if the two teams end up tied.

Fortnite glitch lets you ‘drive’ the Battle Bus ahead of Galactus event

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

Galactus can be seen in the water outside of the Fortnite island.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
