Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ Moreno are known as two of the best Fortnite players in the world, and the pair are extremely close to breaking the 100,000 eliminations barrier.

The streamer who reaches this enormous milestone first will become the first Fortnite player to do so, etching their name into the history books.

While the battle is extremely close, it’s estimated that Moreno will hit 100,000 eliminations first, as the Team SoloMid streamer appears to play twice as many games per day compared to Ninja.

Both men are incredibly close to 100,000 eliminations.

Based on Season 7 statistics, Ninja does average more eliminations per match than HighDistoration, however due to Moreno’s higher play time, he actually averages 232 kills per day compared to Ninja’s 135.

With that all considered, it’s expected that HighDistortion will hit the 100,000 mark around January 25, while Ninja would be unlikely to hit it before February 4th.

At time of writing, Ninja is currently leading the race with 97,033 kills, with HighDistortion hot on his heels with 96, 907, just 126 kills behind the Luminosity member according to Fortnite Tracker.

Of course, while these statistics gives an idea of what may happen, they will mean nothing if these variables change, especially if Ninja begins to play as many games as HighDistortion.

While both players had refrained from mentioning the race to the 100K milestone, Moreno has begun titling his streams with references to the friendly competition, while Ninja uploaded a video to YouTube titled “The Race for 100K Eliminations!” on Tuesday, January 8.

UPDATE 

Just as the race between the streamer was heating up, Ninja announced on Twitter that he would be giving up on it. 

“Taking a break and giving up on the race to 100K,” Ninja told his fans on Twitter. “HighDistortion doing 30-hour streams. [Kid’s] a monster.” 

HighDistortion has yet to respond to Ninja’s concession and is currently over 20 hours into his planned 30-hour stream.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
