YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and online tournament organizers UMG have collaborated once more to host the tenth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.

The popular competition will be returning on July 13 for its tenth consecutive week, and will once again feature a whopping $20,000 prize pool shared among the top three finalists.

The brainchild of KEEMSTAR, Friday Fortnite features some of the biggest names in the online community, including members of the Clout Gang, FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, Luminosity Gaming, and a variety of other streamers and YouTubers.

Defending their title will be the winners of last week’s tournament FaZe’s ‘Tfue’ and ‘Cloak,’ who defeated TSM’s Myth and Hamlinz to secure their fourth championship. 

However, one notable absence from this week will be Fortnite extraordinaire ‘Ninja,’ who won Friday Fortnite in week eight with Cloud9’s ‘Hysteria.’

The payouts for week ten of Friday Fortnite will be the following:

1st Place – $10,000

2nd Place – $7,000

3rd place – $3,000

FRIDAY FORTNITE #10 – JULY 13 (1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 9 PM BST / 6 AM AEST)

Since there are no custom games or lobbies in Fortnite yet, the tournament is played on public servers using the following rules:

Rules:

2v2 Matches

Streaming Rules:

UPDATED: You must have your delay set to 120 seconds on your OBS settings when you are streaming, failing to do so will result in a forfeit and or a replay of the match that was played.

How To Win:

For this tournament you will play two games. Each game you must keep track of your kills for each game played. The combined amount of kills for each game will determine which team will win the match. If out of the two games played the kills are tied a third map will be played to determine a winner for the match.

Sabotage:

You will party up as a SQUAD or DUOS with your opponent based on the type of match (1v1, 2v2). Any player inside of that queued session MAY NOT destroy any bases made by their opponent, make them fall, or any other actions that may help lead to that person’s death.

Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to:

  • 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 disqualifications.

Match Issues:

For no-shows in this tournament if you fail to respond within a fair given time frame you may be forfeited from the tournament.

All forfeits will be handled and made by the judgement of the UMG Admin Demo.

All forfeits to be valid will be reported by the players for them to seek if the match should be replayed and or a forfeit of the match.

The Friday Fortnite #10 tournament will be live-streamed and casted on the UMGEvents Twitch channel, as well as on the individual channels of many of the participants.

Streams of the competition will be added to this article once the start time of the competition draws near.

New Fortnite leak reveals how weapon “mod” attachments will work

After it was leaked that Epic Games were apparently experimenting with weapon mods/attachments in Fortnite a few weeks back, more details have been revealed about the system itself, including how it’ll possibly work when it gets implemented.

The possibility of weapon mods in Fortnite is nothing new. Back in December, notable leaker HYPEX revealed that the idea was currently being tested by Epic Games but didn’t go into more detail about how it would work. Now he’s gotten his hands on more info.

According to the data-miner, these mods seem to work like attachments in other shooters. Players will be able to drop and attach new mods at any point they want and that each attachment will act like an “item”.

Presumably, this means that players will be able to come across different mods/attachments around the map and pick them up like other items.

In addition, HYPEX also confirmed that there’s a function tied to the feature called “PrintValidWeaponMods”, which he said means that weapons have “specific valid mods” that work with each weapon.

While not confirmed, this seems to mean that some weapons might have exclusive attachments/mods that can only be used on that gun and not others.

Finally, he revealed that each weapon will have multiple mod slots, meaning players won’t be restricted to just one attachment while they make their way through each match.

Epic Games
A new leak from HYPEX has revealed just how weapon mods might work in Fortnite.

Unfortunately, no other details have been leaked about the system itself. There’s no telling what kind of attachments/mods people will see from the feature. Will players be able to attach optics, extended mags, or grips that reduce recoil/spread? Only time will tell at this point. There’s also no time frame for when the feature will hit Fortnite, or even a 100% confirmation that it’ll end up getting added.

The game’s current season is set to end on March 15, so Epic might be able to squeeze out enough testing over the next few months so that they can debut the feature during the Season 6 launch, but that’s purely speculation.

Of course, once more details become available, you can be sure Dexerto will let you know, so keep it locked here.
