Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins recently made an incredible solo play using a Shopping Cart and Hunting Rifle in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Ninja is the biggest streamer on the Twitch.tv platform and is also widely regarded as one of the very best Fortnite Battle Royale players on Earth.

Available to play for free on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and iOS, Fortnite has taken the world by storm in 2018 and is now one of the most popular games in history with Ninja often seen as the face of the scene.

The former Halo pro has built a massive fan base thanks to his energetic persona and high octane playstyle in Fortnite which often results in the sort of clip that most of us can only dream of.

The fact that the developers regularly add new items, weapons, and more to the game means that Ninja always has new things to play with and find ways of using to his advantage.

This has been the case with the recently added Shopping Cart and on June 5th he shared a clip of himself going solo with a Shopping Cart and a Hunting Rifle to hit an incredible sniper headshot:

As the first “vehicle” to be added to Fortnite, the Shopping Cart’s introduction came with a number of bugs and issues but these were quickly addressed and it has been generally well received.

However, it is much more difficult to use effectively in solo matches as opposed to duos or squads, which makes Ninja’s player even more impressive.

Something tells us this won’t be the last time that you will see the Twitch sensation use the rickety metal trolley to make other players look like rank amateurs.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
