Fortnite Battle Royale players are constantly pushing themselves to achieve bigger and better things, whether that’s picking up their first ever Victory Royale or smashing world records.

For the last few months we’ve been keeping track of those world records and it’s become a full-time job in itself as players continue to push the limits of what should be possible in the fast-paced shooter.

In the last week we’ve seen the duo versus squads world record broken for both mobile and console players but it looks like the console record has been broken yet again, this time by ‘Gxly’ and ‘Scared’.

The two players combined for a staggering 44 total kills, beating the score of 43 that was set by Jhawk and l3usty just days before. Scared picked up an impressive 13 kills while Glxy clutched up after his teammate died to post a ridiculous score of 31 eliminations.

If you want to see footage of the incredibly performance from the two PlayStation 4 players out of the Oceanic region, they have both uploaded it from their own perspective on YouTube.

Scared’s POV:

Fortnite players continue to show that we are only scratching the surface of what can be achieved in the game as building technique, aim and strategy becomes more of a component each day.

While it’s incredibly impressive to see what the top professionals are capable of doing against one another during events like the Fortnite Fall Skirmish, there’s something equally as satisfying about watching high skilled players decimate the average players of the world.

We try to keep on top of the current records at all times, but never hesitate to contact us if you believe we’ve missed a new one.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
