Popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem confirmed that ‘Friday Fortnite’ would be making a sensational return – the full list of participants has now been released.

The ‘DramaAlert’ host was quick to cover the recent drama between FaZe Clan and Fortnite Battle Royale star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney with Tfue deciding to pursue a lawsuit against the organization over an “oppressive contract”.

FaZe co-owner Ricky ‘Banks’ Banks was quick to refute the claims and, as a show of good faith, FaZe offered up the amount they made from Tfue as a prize pool for Friday Fortnite – which had been discontinued for over a year – taking place on May 31.

The full list of participants has now been revealed including Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and his duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner – who will face the winner of a qualifying tournament aimed to provide a smaller streamer with the chance to gain some popularity.

Should Ninja advance past his first matchup, he could face popular rapper Daystar ‘Tory Lanez’ Peterson in a later round if they can navigate a tricky match up against Ghost Gaming’s controller duo Issa ‘Issa’ Rahim and Liam ‘Kamo’ Fillery.

YouTube sensation Jimmy ‘Mr Beast‘ Donaldson will also take part in the event but faces a difficult first-round game against Twitch streamers Sypher ‘SypherPK’ Ali and Jimmy ‘HighDistortion’ – two players known for their skills on the battlefield.

The tournament also sees the return of fan favorites Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and Ghost Gaming’s Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad who could meet each other later in the tournament to recreate some of their famous battles at the recently renovated Neo Tilted.

100 Thieves star Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofsetter partners with Team SoloMid’s Maria ‘Chica’ Lopez but face a baptism of fire in the tournament, squaring up against World Cup qualified FaZe Clan duo Danny ‘Dubs’ Walsh and ‘Megga’. 

Other competitors including Team Secret’s Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson who partners with regular duo partner Team Atlantis’ Dmitri ‘Mitr0’ Van de Vrie – two players who considered among the very best in the EU region.

The full list of participants and tournament bracket can be found below.

Fortnite has been teasing the arrival of a Predator skin throughout Season 5, and now he’s finally arrived on The Island. Here’s how to unlock his skin.

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced a number of exciting crossover skins to tie in with its ‘bounty hunter’ theme, including The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and Halo’s Master Chief. So what’s next? Well, it’s the Predator’s turn now.

The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 movie Predator and went on to spawn a massive franchise of sequels and spin-offs. He’s easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.

There have been plenty of hints about Predator’s arrival already given throughout Season 5, including the alien warrior’s logo appearing on a door, a helicopter crash site, and a truck being used as a generator like in the movie.

It’s now been confirmed that Predator has landed in Fortnite, and fans are pretty hyped for his arrival. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the skin so you can use it yourself.

How to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite

Following the v15.21 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which is where you can view the Jungle Hunter Quests that need to be completed to unlock Predator cosmetics.

As you can see in the Battle Pass menu below, unlocking the Predator skin requires you to complete one very challenging task: Defeat Predator. This won’t be easy, and it’s recommended you do it in Squads to get some support.

To defeat Predator, you’ll need to head to Stealthy Stronghold and locate him. He’s incredibly agile and will utilize his Cloaking Device to turn almost invisible, so taking him down will be a very difficult task.

There will also be plenty of other players trying to complete this challenge and unlock Predator, so it’s going to be mayhem. We’ve put together a guide to defeating Predator that might help you in your mission.

How to unlock Predator emote, back bling & pickaxe

As well as the Predator skin, players with the Battle Pass can unlock a Yautja Wristblades pickaxe, a Hunter’s Trophy back bling, The Hunt loading screen, a Bio-Helmet Online emote, and a Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap.

Here are the Jungle Hunter Quests you’ll need to complete to unlock them all:

  • Find mysterious pod (Banner Icon)
  • Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy (Logo Emote)
  • Collect Medkits (Graffiti Spray)
  • Collect Legendary Weapons or rarer (Loading Screen)
  • Defeat Predator (Predator Skin)
  • Complete a Bounty as Predator (Hunter’s Trophy Back Bling)
  • Visit Predator’s apartment in Hunter’s Haven as Predator (Bio-Helmet Online Emote)
  • Spend 30 seconds within 10 meters of a player as Predator (Yautja Wristblades Pickaxe)
  • Deal damage while thermal is active as Predator (Hunter’s Arsenal Weapon Wrap)

The Bio-Helmet Online emote in particular is one you’ll definitely want to unlock, as it allows the player to remove Predator’s mask and reveal the horrifying face underneath.

We have a feeling this will become a fan favorite in Fortnite very quickly.
