“Here’s what’s going on, these things used to give you RPGs. For some reason, they do not give you RPGs anymore,” the YouTuber said. “Epic removed RPGs from these bad boys, randomly, and no ones really talking about it much. They’re completely gone, there’s no way to get an RPG in the game anymore.”
It wasn’t just the one instance where Sypher didn’t get an RPG, though. He tried to find an RPG in another game and was unable to do so, even though the bots still dropped some ridiculous loot.
Why is that case? Well, SypherPK suggests that it’s got something to do with Fortnitemares being just around the corner. He believes that Epic has simply taken RPGs away so that they can bring back the Pumpkin Launcher for the Halloween event.
Of course, this seems like a pretty logical explanation and might clear up some doubt for players who were shocked that they’ve been gone. Though, it’d be a little easier to know what’s what if Epic dropped patch notes like they used to.
For the first time since August 17, The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back and Week 1 has already come to a close. We’ve got you covered with a full rundown on the first round of competition.
FNCS finally made its return in Chapter 2 Season 4 with Trios competition taking center stage. The opening round of action kicked off on October 9 and just wrapped up on October 11.
From World Cup winner Bugha, to Clix, Reverse2k, and plenty of others, all the biggest names were lined up to compete. It was a stacked list of former event winners and notable qualifiers that pushed through to the top of the pack.
Only one trio could emerge as the first winners this season, however. Here’s a full recap on how things played out and who came away with the lion’s share of $36,855.
FNCS Chapter 2 Season 4 NA East results
FNCS has returned to fan-favorite Trios competition this season.
What started out with thousands of teams in the first round, quickly dwindled to just the top 1,000. These elite players all battled it out in round two, but only 33 trios could make it through to the final stage. It’s here where the difficulty was ramped up a notch. Across the final two days of action, teams have 12 games to play. The team with the most points at the end of it all was crowned the winner.
Given just how stacked the lobbies were, map wins were extremely hard to come by. Even teams among the top 10 barely finished with more than one or two map wins in total. It was eliminations that made all the difference in Week 1 of the FNCS tournament.
The gap between the very top teams was extraordinarily close as first and second place was decided by just six kills. Ultimately, Bucke, Khanada, and Kreo walked away with 250 points to seal the deal and take home $7,500.
On the other side of the opening round, Week 1 was far more lopsided. Arkhram, rehx, and EpikWhale blitzed through the opposition with a whopping 276 points. Three wins put them ahead of any Eastern team in the Top 15, though their average kills ended much higher as well.
The second best trio was 52 points lower in the standing without an overall map win to show for their efforts. The remainder of the Top 10 was relatively close, though it appeared no one could hold a candle to the Top 3 teams this time around.
