Day One of the Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ $500K Week 7 Duos tournament has all wrapped up for both the European and North American regions.

After both regions played five games each, the NA tournament was won by FaZe’s ‘Thiefs’ and Team Liquid pro player ‘Chap,’ with EU players ‘Lefoubruiteur’ and ‘Skiiiite’ winning their region’s tournament. Both teams took home $40,000 for getting first place in their respective regions.

Before reading the rest of the recap, make sure to brush up on the scoring format for this week’s competition:

Each game, Duos will be ranked based on the points earned in a single game. Victory Royales and Eliminations earn players points that will be scored at the end of each match. The Duo with the most points at the end of the series wins.

Elimination: +1 Point
Victory Royale: +5 Points
8+ Eliminations: +5 Points

NA Recap

Thiefs and Chap put in a dominant performance from start to finish, holding a wire-to-wire lead atop the standings and finishing with a very impressive 51 points.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about their tournament victory was that they did it without winning a single match, meaning their points were all from eliminations.

Coming in second place with 49 points were the Week 6 NA champions ‘Nate Hill’ and ‘FunkBomb,’ who secured another $30,000 in prizes, despite also not winning any of the five matches.

The duo of ‘Symfuhny’ and ‘NRG Zayt’ rounded off the top three with their own 35 points, good enough for $20,000.

However, 20 of their 35 points came in the fifth and final match, in which the pair put in a monstrous performance to gain the maximum points possible in a single match and secure their placement.

Although they finished ninth, ‘Timthetatman’ and Team Liquid pro player ‘Poach’ deserve an honorable mention as they managed to win two of the five matches, including this epic finale in Game 1.

EU Recap

The duo of Lefoubruiteur and Skiiiite took first place with their strong, 30 point performance, five of which came after they secured a Victory Royale in Game 3.

Skiiiite was crucial in getting that victory, as he went big down the stretch and in the final gunfight.

Coming in second place with 25 points and $30,000 were ‘Solary Kinstaar’ and ‘Lunary Jbzzed’, the champions of the Summer Skirmish event the previous week.

Just as with the winners, this pair also took advantage of the five point bonus, getting it after their Victory Royale in Game 4.

Coming in third place, despite not winning any of the five matches, were ‘Teekzie’ and ‘Lunary Xewer,’ who also managed to get 25 points matches but won only $20,000 since they did not own the tiebreaker.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Epic Games
Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

The Ruins Fortnite
Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
