A number of rising Fortnite pros managed to outshine some recognizable names in the first DreamHack Open finals. Here are the final placements for Europe and North America East.

As the majority of esports events have transitioned to online, Fortnite has continued to host weekly Cash Cups and other events. Though, DreamHack stepped in to host their first-ever online Fortnite events with a total of $1.75 million on the line across numerous regions.

Instead of players competing in on melting pot, the event was split between Europe and North America East. However, some competitors did manage to have a good enough connection to compete in the other event. 

While fans might have had their eyes on pros like Bugha, Benjyfishy, MrSavage, Bizzle, and Mongraal, the glory actually went elsewhere. So, here’s how they all got on.

European DreamHack Open final standings

In Europe, Polish star teeq managed to hold off 100 Thieves’ Mr Savage and Grizi Esports’ Snyzy to come out on top – finishing with 373 points from eight games, including a win and 15 eliminations.

His slender lead at the top, which finished at five points, could have been in danger had Mr Savage finished slightly better in his final game. The 100 Thieves star could only manage to finish ninth, confirming his runner-up spot overall.

Apart from the top three, Benjyfishy managed to finish sixth overall and FaZe Mongraal was in 46th, taking home $5,400 and $800 respectively. The full standings, per Estnn, are below.

NA East DreamHack Open final standings

As for NA East, Team Liquid’s STRETCH bagged the $10,000 top prize after finishing with a total of 446 points. He was a lot more comfortable at the top than his European counterpart, finishing 54 points above second-placed FaZe Dubs. 

Fortnite World Cup Champion Bugha, who is usually tipped to be one of the favorites, could only manage a 25th place finish – scoring $800 for his effort. 

Benjyfishy, Snyzy, and Mongraal all managed to compete in the NA East event despite being in Europe.

Snyzy managed to have the best finish of the lot, coming in sixth overall and taking home an extra $3,400. Benjyfishy and Mongraal, however, only won an extra $800 and $250 respectively. 

They are unlikely to hop the pond next time out as North America West players will get their moment in the spot. Who will come out on top there? We’ll just have to wait and see.

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
