The fourth running of Friday Fortnite has finally come to a close, as Ghost Gaming pro players Aydan and Innocents beat out their FaZe Clan rivals Dubs and Megga to finish in first place.

Thanks to popular YouTuber MrBeast fronting the $20,000 prize pool from his own pocket, the fan-favorite Friday Fortnite series was able to return for a fourth week on July 5.

Everything you need to know about what went down in the latest running of the tournament can be found below, including a recap of the grand final, the final placements, a completed bracket, and more. 

Grand Final recap and highlights

Having already beaten Dubs and Megga in the final of the winners bracket Bracket, Aydan and Innocents came into the grand final having to just win one series, while their opponents had two win two in a row.

Map one of the first series started off well for FaZe, who took a brief lead early on, but the Ghost duo stormed back to take a significant 18-8 lead going into the second map.

With their backs against the wall, Dubs and Megga tried to adopt an aggressive strategy going into the second map, knowing they had a lot of ground to make up if they were to beat their Ghost counterparts.

However, their strategy pretty much backfired, as their decision to drop in Paradise Palms ended up with them getting eliminated early, giving Aydan and Innocents the 21-11 win and crowning them Friday Fortnite champions.

Friday Fortnite bracket (July 5)

Here is the completed version of the bracket from the July 5 tourney, including both the Winners and Losers Brackets. 

$10,000 viewer prize winner

As with most of the previous Friday Fortnite tournaments, the July 5 running featured a $10,000 prize given to one lucky viewer picked by MrBeast and KEEMSTAR.

All people had to do to be considered for this was be active in the chat of one of the participating streamers’ Twitch channel. 

The winner of this week’s $10,000 prize was ‘LmAoRaF.’

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.

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.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
