This weekend has been packed full of “Fortnite” shenanigans as Epic held the first-ever “Fortnite” Summer Block Party in Inglewood, California.

The Summer Block Party, which includes the creative showdown and pro-am, is a two-day celebratory festival that features famous “Fortnite” characters, creators and celebrities. Perhaps the most anticipated event is “Fortnite” Pro-Am, which pairs 50 pro players with 50 celebrities and pits the teams against one another for a chance to win the $3 million charity prize pool. The $3 million prize will go to charities.

This marks the second year for “Fortnite” Pro-Am, and it is considerably grander and larger compared to last year's event.

Last year had Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and DJ Marshmello winning the event, and with this year’s roster, fans speculated hard about who would walk away with the Victory Royale.

“Fortnite” Pro-Am followed the almost the same format for winnings as last year, with all teams splitting the $3 million prize pool:

  • 1st place: $1 milliom
  • 2nd place: $500,000
  • 3rd place: $250,000
  • 4th place: $100,000
  • 5th place: $85,000
  • 6th place: $75,000
  • 7th place: $65,000
  • 8th place: $55,000
  • 9th place: $40,000
  • 10th place: $30,000
  • 11th to 50th place: $20,000

In case you missed it, you can watch the entire thing below.

Game 1

The first game saw world cup qualifier Airwaks and American producer RL Grime win the Victory Royale with 16 eliminations. Airwaks’ 14 eliminations and RL Grime’s two eliminations got the pair 26 points, earning them first place on the leaderboard. Airwaks managed to secure the victory after going head-to-head with Symfuhny and eliminating his fellow pro-”Fortnite” player.

“It was easy. Simple as that. I don’t know if it was 50 pros and 50 amateurs but I only saw 98 bots,” Airwaks remarked during an interview after his team had secured the win.

“Luckily, my teammate’s a beast,” RL Grime pitched in during the interview, appreciating Airwaks skills.

“I just try to learn from my partner Aydan who’s the best,” said Abisi regarding the learning curve he had to go through in order to play “Fortnite”

Aydan also mentioned that he will be donating to the Wounded Warriors, a charity for veterans.

Rebelo also mentions that he is there to win money for the Sick Kids Hospital in Canada, the charity of his choice.
