The Fortnite Summer Smash Cup is taking place at the Australian Open. Take a look at who is participating along with some free cosmetic rewards. Epic Games has partnered with the Australian Open for the second straight year to bring us the Summer Smash Cup 2020 and charity event on February 1 and 2.

We have news of the teams participating in the charity event, some of the solo competitors in the Summer Smash Cup, and a free skin and pickaxe for those who participate.

Confirmed teams and players

 

As of now, there are four confirmed Trios teams for the Summer Smash event, featuring some of the biggest Australian names in Fortnite.

The following teams will compete for their share of $100,000 in charity money when the charity event goes live on February 1:

  • Mitch Robinson + Mau + Slaya
  • Dave Hughes + LazarBeam + Rel
  • Reuben Styles + Muselk + x2TwinsJordan
  • Enschway + Lachlan + MrFreshAsian

The solo competition will take place on February 2, with a $400,000 prize pool and some of the best players in the world. Benjyfishy, Mitr0, EpikWhale, Aqua, Nyhrox, and many others – including open qualifiers – will compete for their share of the prize pool

Free rewards

 

This News Feed post is likely from an Australian player. You can’t see this post if you play in NA or EU, but you can if you switch your region to OCE.

What does this mean? Well, you’ll have to participate in the Summer Smash Cup to gain access to the rewards. It’s unclear whether the Cup is a LAN event or an online competition, but some of the big names like Benjyfishy are traveling to Australia to compete.

If this is an online qualifier, then anyone with 2FA will be able to switch their matchmaking region to OCE and try their hand at a 200+ ping performance.

Some players on the r/FortniteBR subreddit are theorizing that there may be a point threshold to hit as well. Hopefully, we’ll get some more information before the event.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

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.”

Doomsday Landmark

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

Published

By

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.
