The June 28 running of Friday Fortnite has now completed, with Team Secret professional player Mongraal and Team Atlantis’ Mitr0 beating out the French duo of Gotaga and Team Solary’s Airwaks to finish in first place.

After nearly a year-long hiatus, the fan-favorite Friday Fortnite series returned on May 31 for three consecutive $20,000 tournaments, the final one of which took place on June 28.

Grand Final recap and highlights

Gotaga and Airwaks had an advantage going into the grand final – winning the Winners Bracket gave them the luxury of having to win only one series, whereas Mongraal and Mitr0 needed to win both.

The first series started off pretty much as one-sided as it gets, with the M&M duo grabbing an incredible 25-4 elimination lead going into the second map, thanks to Mongraal dropping a whopping 17 eliminations.

In the second map, Gotaga and Airwaks tried to spark a comeback by getting four early kills, but they both were taken down shortly after, giving Mongraal and Mitr0 the 25-8 series victory and resetting the bracket for a winners-take-all second series.

Epic GamesTeam Solary’s Airwaks, who recently won the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am, was not able to replicate that success in Friday Fortnite.

With everything to play for, the first map of series two turned out to be lot closer than the first series, with Mongraal and Mitr0 taking a 23-16 lead going into map two.

While Gotaga and Airwaks put up a good fight for survival in the second map, even coming close to completing a comeback, the World Cup-bound duo did enough to maintain their lead and secure the tournament victory 40-29.

Friday Fortnite bracket (June 28)

Here is the finalized version of the Friday Fortnite bracket, including both the Winners and Losers Brackets. 

Nintendo Switch winners

In previous tournaments, $10,000 of the prize pool was given to one lucky winner each week, picked from all who were active in the Twitch chats of participating streamers.

However, for the June 28 running, KEEMSTAR and FaZe Clan’s Banks have chosen to use the money to purchase Nintendo Switches to 30 winners, who have been picked throughout the tournament.

This was done in honor and memory of the late YouTuber Etika, who tragically passed away on June 25 in what was concluded to be a suicide.

It’s not clear when the 30 winners will be officially announced, but we will include their names here once they are revealed! 

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.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
