Ghost Gaming’s professional player Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller has made a mockery the Fortnite World Cup format and current meta by progressing past the semi-finals without using a single gun.
Bizzle, who is currently the highest earner in Fortnite history, has already booked his ticket to the grand final in New York back in the first week of qualifiers.
As a result, he guaranteed himself at least $50,000 in prize money and has taken the rest of the qualifying weeks to make a mockery of the World Cup format he describes as “shit”.
During the recent World Cup Online Open semi-final, the American attempted to qualify without using a gun, stacking tons of mobility items and throwables instead, spending the majority of the game safely protected by the Baller vehicle.
Remarkably, he managed to win two games in a row on his way to racking up 52 points, more than some other players notably Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, to book his place in the weekend’s finals.
Had a really fun stream, won 3 games without guns and ended with 52 points!!! Expect a vid soon— Bizzle (@Ghost_Bizzle) June 8, 2019
Bizzle’s tactic arguably handed him an advantage over other players in certain situations as mobility items are considered one of the most important items in competitive Fortnite – rift-to-go, shadow bombs and impulse grenades can often be the difference between life or death.
Nevertheless, his performance demonstrated his excellent game sense and highlighted why he will be one of the favorites to come out on top in the solo tournament.
When is the Fortnite World Cup grand final?
The Ghost Gaming star is yet to qualify for the duo tournament alongside his teammate Dylan ‘Dmo’ Moore and has just one more week to book his place.
However, Bizzle will be competing in the grand final alongside star names such as Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Team Liquid’s Noah ‘Vivid’ Wright from July 25-28 in New York.
