OpTic’s CouRage sings hilarious Fortnite themed “Country Roads” song for Fall Skirmish challenge

OpTic Gaming content creator Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop used his strong sense of humor to his advantage in the Fall Skirmish week two Trials. 

One of the eight challenges in this week’s Fall Skirmish Trials was called ‘Club Anthem,’ which required participants to submit an “awesome anthem” for their respective Club.

CouRage, who is a member of the Lucky Llamas, decided to use John Denver’s iconic country song “Take Me Home, Country Roads” for his submission. 

However, the popular streamer changed the lyrics up quite a bit, with his rendition full of references to Fortnite, the Fall Skirmish, and most importantly, the Lucky Llamas. 

CouRage was fully invested in his submission, as he wore a plaid shirt and white hat. His facial expressions and movements while singing were spectacular, and should make his anthem one of the favorites to place high in the competition.

CouRage and his fans will have to wait another day to find out whether this rendition of “Country Roads” was good enough to be one of the winners of the challenge. 

A panel of judges will look over all of the submissions, and the winners will be revealed during the broadcast of the Fall Skirmish week three tournament on October 5. 

About the Fortnite Fall Skirmish Week Two Trials

The weekly trials for this week’s Fortnite Fall Skirmish was called ‘Spin and Win,’ which featured eight different challenges picked via a spinning wheel.

After each spin, members of all five Clubs had a set amount of time to complete each challenge faster and better than the other Clubs.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
