Another day, another Fortnite record broken.

An Australian squad with the handles Fortitude_Fqrbes, Nexjs, tactjc-, and NadeXC, have beaten the long-standing squad kills console record of 59 kills set in April. They beat the previous score by just two kills on PS4.

The team secured 61 kills combined to claim the record and secure their names in Fortnite history, at least until another team comes along to take the record for themselves.

The record-breaking feat comes after the PC record for squad kills was broken three times in the same day at the end of September. Jamal “Jamside” Saidayev and Artur “7ssk7” Kyourshin of Virtus Pro and Oskar “3vil” Żeljazkow and Mallqui “sifflol” Farinango Klag secured the record with 57 combined kills after Faze Clan took the record mere hours earlier in the day.

The lust for blood follows Fortnite’s new trial system in the Fall Skirmish series, which tasked teams with finishing a game with the most eliminations possible to earn cash prizes and points for their clubs.

At this rate, it won’t be long until a squad breaks the record again. Surely no one can get a perfect 96 kills in one game… right?
