Eight weeks of Fortnite Summer Skirmish competition have finally come to an end with $8,000,000 in prize money being chopped up and divided between competitors based on their standings. Those of you who couldn’t find the time to watch the Grand Final yourself might be wondering who won Fortnite Summer Skirmish. The Fortnite Summer Skirmish winner was indeed crowned yesterday, and it likely came as a shock to the household names of the competition.
The entire Fortnite Summer Skirmish Grand Final was a four-day event going right from Friday into Monday. Think of it as beginning with school being out and ending as the kids head back to the classroom. Regular changes and optimizations to the Fortnite Summer Skirmish points system kept players on their toes, but there could only be one true winner.
Fortnite Summer Skirmish Standings: Who Won Fortnite Summer Skirmish?
So just who won Fortnite Summer Skirmish following yesterday’s Grand Final? The Fortnite Summer Skirmish winner was the mysterious Morgausee. Not many can say they were aware of this player beforehand, but they’re bound to become a household name in the Fortnite community after making such a splash at the biggest Fortnite competition yet. Winning themselves the largest $225,000 prize pool available, they just got a major boost in life for playing what many parents would consider a silly little video game.
Morgausee was a fierce competitor throughout, achieving a Victory Royale early in the tournament and managing a resounding 7 kills in the very same match. That’s no small feat in a game as frantic as Fortnite. Morgausee played many a good game, and their Grand Final victory was already heavily hinted at by their standings, but a bonus seventh game added in at the last minute following a set-back in Game 4 gave Morgausee the opportunity to bolster their Summer Skirmish standings with another three points.
The official Epic Games website recorded the Fortnite Summer Skirmish standings week after week, so you can refer back to that with ease to follow each player’s journey. If you need a little primer on how the points system works, we have a handy guide right here.
