The June 7 running of Friday Fortnite has now wrapped up, with FaZe Clan pro players Jarvis and Tilt beating their org teammate NICKMERCS and his duo Nio in the grand final to take first place.
After nearly a full year of absence, the popular Friday Fortnite tournament series returned on May 31 for three $20,000 competitions, thanks to a generous $60,000 donation from FaZe Clan.
The June 7 running was the second of the three tournaments, and you can find everything you need about the results of the tournament below, including a recap of the grand final, updated list of final placements, the lucky viewer who won $10,000, and the finalized bracket.
Grand Final recap
Jarvis and Tilt came into the Grand Final having won the Winner’s Bracket, meaning that they had to only win one of two series to clinch the championship.
NICKMERCS and Nio, on the other hand, had two win two straight matches, as they had been relegated to the Loser’s Bracket during the sixth round of the tournament.
The first map of match one started off well for the FaZe duo, as they took advantage of their opponents falling early to rack up some eliminations and take a 27-18 lead going into the second map.
With their backs against the wall, Nick and Nio came out hot in the map two, coming all the way to get within one of the leaders, but ultimately being unable to take the lead and force a second, do-or-die series.
Thanks to their 26-18 margin in the second map, Jarvic and Tilt won the match with an overall score of 53-36, clinching their first ever Friday Fortnite championship.

Friday Fortnite bracket (June 7)
Here is the entire live bracket for Friday Fortnite on June 7, including both the Winners and Losers Brackets. Keep in mind that YouTube star Pewdiepie, who was playing with Ninja, had to leave midway through the tournament, and was substituted for Timthetatman.
How Friday Fortnite works
Friday Fortnite is a weekly tournament that brings together some of the biggest content creators and pro players of the online gaming community, sometimes even featuring celebrities.
The tournament is double-elimination, and uses the exciting ‘total of two’ and ‘bot race’ format. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.
After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match is played if the two teams end up tied.
Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far
The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.
Leaked Map Stages
All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.
Leaked Quest Voice Line
Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.
A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:
“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”
According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.
Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.
Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25
In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.
Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.
We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
Leak: S.T.A.R.S. Team and El Chapulín Colorado to Return Very Soon
Fortnite has re-added multiple Item Shop sections to its API, meaning they will be available very soon. Five existing sections have also been removed, suggesting Epic doesn’t plan to bring those Sets back to the Item Shop for a while.
Re-added Item Shop Sections:
- S.T.A.R.S. Team
- El Chapulín Colorado
- Wu Wear (new)
Removed Item Shop Sections:
- Silk Sonic
- Chloe Kim
- Cobra Kai
- Turn The Music Up
The ‘Wu Wear’ section, which was added to the API today, will contain the new Wu-Tang Clan cosmetics; featuring two Outfits, two Bundles and more.
We’ll keep you updated if any additional sections are changed.
