Some of the best and most popular Fortnite: Battle Royale players showed off their skills in yesterday’s $20,000 Friday Fortnite tournament.
FaZe Clan’s Turner “Tfue” Tenney and Dennis “Cloak” Lepore were the victors this time around, claiming their third tournament championship. The pro players took out streaming personalities Avery “Avxry” Lopriore and Jimmy “HighDistortion” Moreno in the grand finals, clinching the $10,000 grand prize.
With the amount of talent in the competition, nobody was surprised to see several incredible plays. While it’d be difficult to list every great play from this tournament, there were some moments in the event that seemed to stand above others. Those plays combined the right amount of mechanical skill, positioning, game knowledge, and in some cases, a little bit of luck.
Here are the top five plays from this week’s $20,000 Friday Fortnite tournament.
5) AimbotCalvin rains down fire on enemies
AimbotCalvin doesn’t play much Fortnite—he’s an Overwatch player at heart. But that doesn’t stop him from showing off each week in the Friday Fortnite tournaments.
This week was no exception, with Calvin taking out a full team at Dusty Divot using his advantageous position. With the high ground, Calvin put pressure on several players and eventually eliminated all of them.
4) KingRichard destroys five
Despite being one of the most consistent players week to week, some have overlooked KingRichard. The Team Envy captain put on a clinic in this week’s Friday Fortnite, especially when taking on the eventual champions.
In their matchup against Tfue and Cloak, Richard put up a game-high 12 kills, with five of them coming in quick succession. But Richard and AimbotCalvin were still unable to get the win.
3) Ninja goes on a long-range spree
The most popular player in the tournament, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, constantly pulls off great plays. This week’s top play for the Twitch star featured him picking off opposing players with scoped rifles in quick succession. His shots seemed to be locked onto the opponents, which wasn’t a good thing for his targets.
2) Myth racks up 24 kills
The previous record for most kills by a single player in the Friday Fortnite tournament’s history was 23, according to UMG Events. But Ali “Myth” Kabbani broke that milestone yesterday with 24 kills.
During a tough losers bracket run to try to get to the grand finals, Myth did everything in his power to will his team through the tournament. The team won three matches in the losers bracket, but were bounced out of the competition in the losers finals.
1) HighDistortion also racks up 24 kills
Myth wasn’t the only one to hit the 24-kill mark yesterday, though. TSM streamer HighDistortion went into another gear in the winners bracket finals against FaZe Clan, dropping 24 kills in the first game of the series.
Despite his great showing, HighDistortion and his teammate, Avxry, were beaten by FaZe in the winners finals and eventually beaten again in the grand finals by the pro players. But HighDistortion’s showing in the first series against FaZe will remain one of the most impressive performances in Friday Fortnite history.
