The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) came to an end last weekend with a cracking finale. A total of 3 million US dollars in prize money was distributed. Who was able to take home the prize money and the Axe of the Champions?

The seventh season-long FNCS proved to be an endurance test for those lucky enough to reach the finals. Three straight months of relentless training set the stage for an exciting finale in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5. Epic Games allocated $3 million for the competition, which spanned seven regions.

Only seven teams were able to claim their region's top prize and the rarest pickaxe in Fortnite, the Axe of Champions. The top three teams in each region will also automatically qualify for the FNCS Chapter 2 - Season 6 Grand Finals.

Let's take a look at the winners.
