The Fortnite world record for solo eliminations has been broken yet again. This time, it’s a player from the Asian region that has set the bar for all opponents to aim for.

The world record of 32 kills, set by diddytheboy on October 29, was so impressive that we believed it would stand for a number of weeks, but Japanese player ‘Rizart’ clearly had other ideas.

The Fortnite phenom managed to rack up a staggering 34 kills in just one game and was quick to share his accomplishment on Twitter and YouTube.

According to Rizart’s bio on Twitter, he represents a professional Fortnite team called ‘Crazy Racoon’. He also has almost 73,000 subscribers on YouTube – a number that is sure to rise if he continues to break records in such emphatic fashion.

The full video of Rizart’s accomplishment can be found below. As you can probably imagine, it’s pretty action-packed and begins with a number of kills in the ever-popular Tilted Towers.

While players from North America and Europe tend to get the most publicity in Fortnite, we’ve seen a number of world records smashed by players from the APAC region in recent weeks.

As the competitive Fortnite scene continues to grow, it will be interesting to see whether any of the top players from the region will be able to compete with the world’s best at international tournaments.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
