Muselk’s Attempt to Save Trapped Fortnite Player is One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told

Fortnite streamer Elliot ‘Muselk’ Watkins spotted a player outside the limits of the map during a match and attempted to rescue them; what followed was a series of events showing off the best Fortnite has to offer.

The clip starts with Muselk fighting someone near the edge of the map, unaware of what they were doing there.

He wins the battle, but notices the player’s ATK dangling close to a cliff leading out of bounds. While inspecting the situation, Muselk sees the reason for the kart and player he fought being so close to the edge.

There is another player that fell off of the ledge, but survived. Muselk spots an opportunity to be a good Samaritan and tries to help the fallen player.

The rescue mission went terribly, with Muselk accidentally killing the player he tried to save by running him over with the ATK after falling down uncontrollably.

The hilarious slapstick moment after all that work was worth a clip on its own, however, the player’s death may not have been an accident.

Chappadoodle, the trapped player who was run over, told his side of the story on reddit – leading to a legendary tale of sacrifice in Fortnite

When he saw the ATK plummeting towards him, Chappadoodle knew the kart was going to roll right into the ocean, killing Muselk during the daring rescue attempt.

Chappadoodle actually jumped in front of the ATK to stop it from rolling and was sent into the ocean himself, saving Muselks life.

Muselk started off trying to save Chappadoodle, but instead it was Chappadoodle who saved Muselk in the end. Take whatever moral lesson you’d like out of this one.

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
