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.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
