Ninja makes major promise after failing to qualify for Fortnite World Cup

Tyler ‘Fortnite World Cup but promised he’ll be there next year shortly after it wrapped up.

Ninja, arguably the biggest name in all of Fortnite, surprised everyone when he wasn’t able to lock down a qualifying spot to the World Cup.

He still showed up for the Pro-Am event and casted the first two games of the Duos Finals, but he revealed that he would have enjoyed it a lot more if he were out there competing instead.

TWITCH:NINJANinja is ready for a comeback.

The former Halo pro proved he still has a competitive fire burning in him and watching on the sidelines while players competed for millions of dollars had to sting.

“I didn’t put the full time or effort in to be on that stage the last two days,” he tweeted. “I promise I’ll be there next year.”

Anyone who followed Ninja through the qualifying portion knows how far he came as a pro in Fortnite and he came close to qualifying several times.

Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner, his duos partner throughout the World Cup, signed to TSM and qualified for the solos event, but has to be excited for a chance to run it back with a motivated and hungry Ninja.

The future of competitive Fortnite is going to look a lot different as a lot of players made names for themselves in this World Cup, most notably Bugha, the winner of the solos.

Ninja knows he has his work cut out for him and if Reverse doesn’t plan on partnering with him again, there is another big name just waiting.

“Yes, Ninja and I will qualify for the World Cup next year since Reverse2k let him down,” the Doc tweeted.

That’s right, Dr Disrespect is looking to throw his hat into the ring and pick up another championship.

The Two-Time is almost certainly joking about being on the stage next year considering how much he’s criticized Fortnite but crazier things have happened.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.
