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 leak reveals size of upcoming Venom skin and it’s scary

A Fortnite leak has revealed the size of the upcoming Venom skin, and it looks like it’s going to be pretty big.

Over the course of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4, some of the most well-known and much loved Marvel character have been available to purchase as a skin, or have had their abilities be playable in-game.

That includes the likes of Iron Man, Thor, and Groot, but there are still some characters that have been rumored, and even leaked, to be coming to the battle royale that still haven’t made an appearance. 

Venom, the adversary of Spider-Man, has been teased as a new skin given that his abilities have been seen in-game through the Marvel limited-time mode. Though, a first-look hasn’t been leaked just yet. 

Epic Games
Season 4 has been all about Marvel, but that will change in Season 5.

Well, while leakers haven’t been able to show off the new skin just yet, they have been able to reveal just how big it’ll look in-game. 

“Venom is confirmed to be a skin and it’s supposed to be large like Brutus,” reliable leaker HYPEX tweeted on October 29. As anyone who has played the last few seasons of Fortnite knows, Brutus is one of the game’s bigger and bulky characters. 

So, it looks like Venom will be coming in his bigger than usual form – rather than fitting into a usually tiny frame like Jonesy or the other defaults. Though, some fans would also like to see a normal Eddie Brock skin, similar to how there’s also a Tony Stark skin. 

On top of the Venom confirmation, HYPEX also noted that fellow leaker intercelluar uncovered two other skins with the code names ‘PinkRaptor’ and ‘LunchBox’.

Given that Epic Games love to hide their skin behind these cryptic names, there’s no telling for sure as to what they could be, and we’ll just have to wait until a leaker manages to make them public.
