Popular Fortnite streamer beats Ninja to become first to reach 100,000 eliminations

The incredible 100,000 elimination mark in Fortnite Battle Royale has finally been reached, and it was eclipsed by one of the biggest names in the game. 

Popular Twitch streamer HighDistortion passed the seemingly insurmountable mark on January 20, hitting 100,002 eliminations during the fateful match that put him over the top.

After reaching the mark, the Team SoloMid content creator tweeted out a screenshot of new eliminations total along with a teary-eyed emoticon to commemorate his amazing achievement.

The screenshot comes from Fortnite Tracker, an independent website that the community widely accepts as being the most reliable and official tracker for all relevant players’ statistics. 

According to HD’s profile on the site, he currently sits at 3,636 wins, 20.10 winning percentage, 6.92 K/D ratio, and, of course, 100,000+ eliminations. 

HD got his 100,000th elimination at Tilted Towers, which shouldn’t be much of a surprise. HD loves landing there as the hectic and crowded nature of the location perfectly suits his aggressive and relentless playstyle. 

The streamer went back to admire the elimination via the game’s replay system, a clip of which can be seen below. 

Hitting this huge milestone had been a long time coming for HighDistortion, who had been second to Twitch superstar Ninja in eliminations for a very long time.

While many believed Ninja would be the first to reach the mark, his busy schedule, along with HD’s unconditional dedication, allowed the former Gears of War pro to take the lead not too long ago and make it a one-man race soon thereafter.

Just to get an idea of how dedicated he’s been. HD has to have averaged at least 208 eliminations per day in the 481 days that the game has been out for him to have reached this mark, and that’s if he played from day one. 

Speaking of Ninja, he and several other prominent members of the Fortnite community tweeted out their congratulations to HD for reaching 100,000 eliminations.

HD will not be alone in the 100K club for long, however, as Ninja is about 1,600 eliminations off the pace and will likely reach the mark himself in the near future.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
