The fourth running of Friday Fortnite has finally come to a close, as Ghost Gaming pro players Aydan and Innocents beat out their FaZe Clan rivals Dubs and Megga to finish in first place.
Thanks to popular YouTuber MrBeast fronting the $20,000 prize pool from his own pocket, the fan-favorite Friday Fortnite series was able to return for a fourth week on July 5.
Everything you need to know about what went down in the latest running of the tournament can be found below, including a recap of the grand final, the final placements, a completed bracket, and more.
Grand Final recap and highlights
Having already beaten Dubs and Megga in the final of the winners bracket Bracket, Aydan and Innocents came into the grand final having to just win one series, while their opponents had two win two in a row.
Map one of the first series started off well for FaZe, who took a brief lead early on, but the Ghost duo stormed back to take a significant 18-8 lead going into the second map.
With their backs against the wall, Dubs and Megga tried to adopt an aggressive strategy going into the second map, knowing they had a lot of ground to make up if they were to beat their Ghost counterparts.
However, their strategy pretty much backfired, as their decision to drop in Paradise Palms ended up with them getting eliminated early, giving Aydan and Innocents the 21-11 win and crowning them Friday Fortnite champions.

How does Friday Fortnite work?
Friday Fortnite is a weekly tournament that brings together some of the biggest content creators and pro players of the online gaming community, sometimes even featuring celebrities.
The tournament is double-elimination, and uses the exciting ‘total of two’ and ‘bot race’ format. In each round, the teams that get matched up queue into a public Squads lobby together, where they try to get as many eliminations as possible.
After two Squads matches, the team with the most combined eliminations gets to advance, while a third match is played if the two teams end up tied.
