A French player has destroyed the previous record of 31 for Solo vs Duo in Fortnite.

Payamz has recorded 35 kills in a Solo vs Duo match to set a new World Record. The previous record was held by two players, with Teeqzy and Xewer tying at 31.

The record setting performance was uploaded to YouTube for everyone to verify.

Payamz started slow but went on a streak in Tilted Towers to run his numbers up.

As the match went on, he started to pick up the majority of the eliminations on remaining players. He even felt the number could have been higher, explaining he thought that three eliminations got away from him in the beginning of the match.

Still, 35 is good enough to leap over the previous record holders.

The previous record holder Teeqsy has become a fixture on the Fortnite competitive circuit, playing in multiple Skirmishes for professional side Millenium. Payamz is a relative unknown in the world of content creation and comp Fortnite, but his record setting performance will surely turn some heads.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
