Fortnite Season 4 is looking for a champion, and the FNCS 4 will provide us with that answer. Week 1 of the FNCS 4 has passed and we have your winners right here!
Season 4 of the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is the trios format and Week 1 took place on October 9 to 11 where the best names in Fortnite (NA East/West & Europe) took to the battle royale arena. Week 1 of the FNCS starts off fierce but only one squad can reign supreme in each region. Let’s see which team took home the glory and the loot.
Each region started with thousands of teams in the prelim lobbies until only 33 teams made it to the final matches. Competitive Fortnite is all about getting high kill counts over your matches and only the teams with the most kills place high in the standings.
