Team SoloMid pro player Daequan and his partner Yanni have won the second running of the $10,000 Code Red Fortnite tournament, hosted by popular Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect, BoomTV, and Esports Arena.

The pair edged out Luminosity Gaming’s SypherPK and pro player Symfuhny in the grand finals to secure the $6,000 first place prize and the prestige of a Code Red championship.

Before reading on, please go over the scoring format so to better understand the remained of this recap.

HOW TO WIN:

Code Red is a double-elimination tournament that will start off with 16 teams of two players each. Since there are no publicly available custom games in Fortnite, the competition will follow the standard ‘total of two’ format.

Each round, the Duos that are matched up together will queue into a Squads lobby and try to get more eliminations than their opponent. After two maps, the team with the more kills wins.

If kills are tied after the two maps, a third map will be played, with the first Duo to get to five total kills first winning. If neither team gets to five, the one with the higher number of eliminations wins. 

Having reached the finals by virtue of winning the Winners Bracket, Daequan and Yanni had to only win one of two matches to claim the championship.

Meanwhile Sypher and Symfuhny, who reached the final by winning four straight matches in the Losers Bracket, had to win back-to-back matches in the final if they were to be crowned champions.

Knowing they were at a disadvantage, Sypher and Symfuhny came out aggressively in match one, taking a quick 16-6 lead after the first map.

This momentum carried into map two, which they won 19-7 to win the match 35-13 on aggregate and reset the bracket, forcing a winner-take-all match two.

Having lost their one game cushion, Daequan and Yanni regained their composure as they took map one 14-10, which put everything on the line for map two.

With the margin razor tight, Sypher and Symfuhny won the map 11-9, but it was not enough to overcome their four elimination deficit, which meant that Daequan and Yanni came out on top 23-22 and took home the victory. 

Here are the final placements for the November 20 running of the Code Red Fortnite tournament, along with the prize breakdown.

How to pull off powerful Fortnite She-Hulk and Ironman “super-jump”

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has done it again ⁠— the Fortnite star has uncovered yet another powerful interactive involving the new Marvel mythics. This time, he’s combined the She-Hulk and Ironman items to pull off a map-traversing “super-jump.”

It seems like a new mythic item is arriving in Fortnite every week during Season 4. The Marvel-themed season has appropriately themed items to go along with it, bringing each hero’s superpowers into the game.

Thor can toss around his Mjolnir, Iron Man can fly around, and well, She-Hulk can smash. Her mythic was added into the game in the latest update for players to muck around with.

She-Hulk’s mythic has finally been added to the main game.

She-Hulk’s smash allows her to jump incredible distances before smashing into the ground, knocking enemies up, and dealing damage. It’s very effective for closing down distances on opponents.

Her mythic is also very good at getting across the map quickly. SypherPK has managed to break Fortnite once again using his favorite combination of tools: Marvel mythics, and crash pads.

If you use the She-Hulk and Ironman mythics while jumping off a crash pad, you’re able to fly basically all the way across the Fortnite island. Obviously it’s a little bit silly, but if you need to make a cross-map rotation pronto, there’s no faster way.

“Iron man, plus Hulk smash jump ⁠— you get a really big boost there. Doing it in the water makes you go much further, and once you add a crash pad…it’s really cool,” Sypher said.

Segment begins at 4:54

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

  1. Deploy a crash pad in water.
  2. Jump in the water, and use the Iron Man Repulsor to jump into the air.
  3. Swap to the She-Hulk mythic, and use that to jump off the crash pad.
  4. Watch as you fly as far as you want across the map.

Obviously, this is probably a glitch. However, that shouldn’t stop you from abusing it whenever you get the chance ⁠— either for a bit of fun, or for a real advantage.

Epic is likely to patch it out of the game shortly, so you don’t have long to test it out for yourself. If you do manage to nab both mythics though, give it a whirl, and you might find yourself super-jumping across the map too.
