Daniel “KEEMSTAR” Keem’s Friday Fortnite tournament is back after a small break. While fans will see the return of regular players such as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, Benjy “Benjyfishy” David Fish, Nick “Nickmercs” Kolcheff, and more, the bracket will include a celebrity guest this week.
The last tournament saw the pairing of Ninja and Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg, which blew viewing figures out of proportion. KEEMSTAR reported that over 8.8 million unique viewers tuned in to watch Friday Fortnite in week two of its return.
Here’s everything you need to know about the third Friday Fortnite event on June 28.
In Friday Fortnite, two players play together as a duo and have to face another pair to get the most kills in two games. Both pairs will squad up and play two games of Fortnite, and whichever team has the most kills by the end of both matches will move on to the next round.
The losers of the first round of the tournament are sent into the losers bracket for a second chance at getting to the grand finals. If a team loses a round in the losers bracket, they’re out of the tournament. Duos in the normal bracket also will be eliminated if they lose after round one.
Now that the tournament is back, KEEM and UMG Events have unveiled the bracket for June 28. In a surprise announcement, Keem revealed that LeBron James Jr. will be pairing with FaZe Sway for this week’s tournament.
