$10,000 viewer prize

Star YouTuber Roman Atwood and his Smile More company have decided to chip in a little extra for this week’s Friday Fortnite.

Not only are they funding the $10,000 prize pool for the competition itself, but are also throwing in an additional ten grand for viewers to have a chance to win.

Ten lucky viewers will win $1,000 apiece, and all you have to do to be in contention is watch UMG’s livestream of the event, from which the names will be picked.

What is the Friday Fortnite format?

Friday Fortnite uses a double elimination tournament featuring 16 duos that do battle against each other in public matches

In each round, duos matched up against each other will queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they will then try and get as many eliminations as possible.

After two matches, the team with the most eliminations will advance to the next round. If the elimination total is tied after the two matches, the teams play a third match as a tie-breaker. 

Players who try and sabotage their opponents in-game could potentially face disqualification. Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to the following:

  • Breaking or weakening opponent’s built or non built structures or cover by any means.
  • Causing opponents to miss shots or miss opportunities for advancing their scores in any way shape or form.
  • Building in front of your opponent.
  • Boogie Bombing your opponent.
  • The use of a boogie bomb on your opponent at any point in the game are subject to disqualification

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Fortnite skins
Epic Games
Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 14 XP Xtravaganza Challenges
