UPDATE – Due to a misunderstanding, the article initially stated that a world record was set, which is incorrect. Information was presented to us that showed the world record was tied, not set.

It appears that Fortnite history has been made in this week’s running of the $20,000 Friday Fortnite celebrity tournament on June 8th.

Popular YouTubers ‘Nick Eh 30’ and ‘ONE_shot_GURL’ and the FaZe Clan professional player duo of Tuner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore combined to tie the world record for kills in a Fortnite squads match on PC. 

The two teams were facing each other in the second round of the Winners Bracket, with the pair that got the greater number of kills advancing to the next round.

Because there are no private servers in Fortnite, teams competing against each other in Friday Fortnite have to load into a Squads match together, essentially making them teammates in-game. 

With all four players going above and beyond in their efforts to get as many kills as possible, they managed to collectively get a total of 53 kills, which according to tournament organizer Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem, ties a world record.

The 53 kill world record was first set on May 1st, by a group of players that includes current OpTic Gaming Fortnite pro player Dade ‘Dramas’ Lesch.

The full video of their record setting match can be seen below.

Setting a world record in Fortnite is quite a remarkable achievement; countless groups of players have loaded into Squads matches with prepared strategies and plans for trying to set records, and almost all have failed.

The fact that NickEh30, ONE_shot_GURL, Tfue, and Cloak did it unintentionally while playing against each other in a $20,000 tournament is an incredible achievement on its own.


Fortnite Baba Yaga skin release date leaked

The release date of Fortnite’s Baba Yaga skin has been leaked ahead of time, and it’s not all that too far away.

With Halloween being just around the corner, Epic Games have activated their annual Fortnitemares celebrations. The yearly event has brought changes to the battle royale island, as well as the ability to play as a shadow while your teammate is still alive in a match. 

Though given its Halloween, and players want to dress in new skins, the devs have brought back some classic looks – including the Skull Trooper – while also releasing some brand new cosmetics like Party Trooper and the Bone Squad.

Yet, one of the spookiest skins, Baba Yaga, is still yet to hit the Item Shop. The skin takes its name and look from the classic eastern European folk tale about a terrifying-looking old woman.

Fortnitemares always brings some new skins to the battle royale.

The skin was leaked prior to the recent Fortnitemares update by a number of data miners, though, the wait has been on ever since, with players hoping to see it in the Item Shop.

Well, that wait isn’t going to last all that much longer, as leaker ShiinaBR posted that, according to their reliable source, it will be available as a part of the Item Shop rotation on Monday, October 26. 

In the leaks, the skin is labeled as being ‘Rare’ so, it should set you back around between 1200 and 1600 V Bucks. 

Obviously, while Shiina has posted tonnes of reliable information in the past, the final say, of course, goes to Epic Games and they could very well change their mind and put a different skin in the Item Shop.

That might seem like a bit of an extreme move, changing dates just because one has been leaked, but there are plenty of skins that have been leaked in the past that are still nowhere to be seen.
