Competitive Fortnite player ‘NotVivid’ has won the $500K Fortnite ‘Summer Skirmish’ Week Four tournament, securing the $67,500 grand prize.

He was the first player to reach the 8 points necessary to win, with Team Liquid pro player ‘Poach’ coming in second, followed by Luminosity Gaming pro ‘Kreo’ in third.

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

Hold the Throne

The first player to reach 8 or more points by the end of the competition wins. Victory Royales and Eliminations in this competition will be scored to determine placement at the end of the event. The player with the most eliminations in a single match will “Hold the throne” and hold a bonus point until dethroned.

  • Victory Royale: +2 Points
  • 2nd and 3rd Place: +1 Point
  • 4 or more Eliminations: +1 Point
  • Hold the Throne (Most Eliminations in a Single Match): +1 Point, $50,000

NotVivid was invited to play in this week’s competition on the virtue of his top performances in one of the previous Solo Showdown in-game events this year.

He was able to jump out to a strong start with a Victory Royale in Game 2, along with five eliminations that earned him an extra point. 

He followed that up with another Victory Royale in Game 4, putting him at seven points and on the brink of winning the event.

However, Liquid’s Poach put on a major comeback, winning the fifth game and getting to five points, which put him in a position to try to sneak the championship from under NotVivid’s nose.

However, in the sixth and final match of the tournament, NotVivid managed to get 4+ eliminations and finish in the top 3, getting the two points that put him to nine overall and first place.

Poach, who ended up also winning Game 6, finished with seven points, and LG’s Kreo came in third with four points.

The ‘On the Throne’ $50,000 bonus went to streamer ‘Reverse2K,’ who got the highest number of elimination in a single match with nine. 

He also managed to finish 5th, which meant that he took home a total of $86,000 from this week’s competition.

Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 8 challenges are here, and we’ve got all the information you need to complete them all in no time, with some handy tips along the way.

We’re now halfway through Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale Fortnite, and the weekly challenges just keep on coming to help players earn that all-important XP to level up their Battle Pass.

The introduction of Predator to the island may be taking everyone’s attention right now, but you’ll still want to make time for the Week 8 challenges as they’ll need to be completed by Thursday, January 28.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 brings fresh challenges to the mix.

This week features a farming theme, as three of the challenges will require players to visit either a Farm or a Farmers Market on the map. Aside from those, there are some more standard quests like dealing Pistol damage and collecting Gold Bars.

Without further ado, here are the seven Epic quests you’ll need to complete this week, as well as the single Legendary quest that’ll earn you a significant chunk of XP.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 Quests

  • Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market (3)
  • Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm (1)
  • Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm (1)
  • Pistol Damage (250)
  • Collect Gold Bars (500)
  • Blow up a gas pump (1)
  • Distance traveled Gliding (3,500)

Let’s start with the basic ones: You’ll gain Gliding distance every time you play a match and jump from the Battle Bus. Similarly, you’ll collect Gold Bars in everyday play, but you can speed this one along by searching tills, safes, and destroying washing machines.

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Pistol damage is easy, as you’ll simply need to find a Pistol (they’re very common) and shoot other players. You may find it easier to go after IO Guards, as their aim isn’t great, and remember that using a rarer Pistol will deal more damage.

Blowing up a gas pump should be as simple as visiting a gas station and shooting one of the gas pumps out the front until they explode. We’ll have guides for the Farm challenges when they go live, so be sure to check back then.

As always, completing each of these challenges will bag you a sweet 20,000 XP, meaning there’s a total of 140,000 XP to be earned. And that’s not even including this week’s Legendary quest.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 Legendary Quest

  • Eat Fish (10/20/30/40/50)

To complete the Week 8 Legendary quest, you’ll need to eat fish. You can do this by fishing with a Rod or Harpoon Gun, or by using explosives such as Grenades or a Motorboat’s missiles to blow them up.

Simple, right? Well, there are multiple tiers to this challenge, and if you want to complete them all and get yourself a whopping 55,500 XP you’ll need to eat a grand total of 50 fish.

You’ll need to get fishing if you want to complete the Week 8 Legendary quest.

While finding 50 fish might take you a while, it should be a lot easier to complete than last week’s Legendary challenge, which had some players calling for “trash” vehicle challenges to be removed from the game.

Remember, you’ll have until Thursday, January 28, 2021, to complete all of these weekly challenges before they disappear when Week 9 rolls around.
