The now infamous Fortnite player ‘Elemental_Ray’ gained notoriety recently after he wiped out 48 players in a single solo game – taking advantage as over half the lobby looked on at the rocket launch.

The rocket launch event was the first major live event taking place in Fortnite, and an unwritten truce of sorts had been agreed between players.

Because the rocket launch would only be visible once, many player put down their weapons and gazed into the battle royale island sky, to witness the event.

But of course, there were bound to be some spoil sports taking advantage of those with their guard down, and one player, Elemental_Ray took his chance to break the solo kills record.

By destroying the ramp which held 48 players, Elemental_Ray send them flying to their demise – but it turns out that the ramp was in fact holding more than 48 players.

A reddit post shows that there was in fact 54 players on the elevated platform, but the elimination of six of them was attributed to another player after they did removed a single timber floor piece.

The post shows a player by the name PcGaming1724 breaking the platform holding the six other players, meaning that the record was reduced to only 48, attributed to Elemental_Ray.

The solo record could have been 54 kills from r/FortNiteBR

Many have already written off the 48 kill record as simply unbeatable, so imagine it was bolstered by another six kills.

The guilty party, Elemental_Ray has also made a video explaining his side of the story, showing that another player was in fact planning to knock the ramp, and so he simply swooped in and took the glory.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
