Wondering who the best Fortnite Duos will be this season? These are some people to keep an eye on.
This weekend was the first Duos Cash Cup of Fortnite Season 3, and an opportunity to see which teams are on form ahead of the FNCS in July.
As usual there’s been plenty of chopping and changing, with a few tier 1 pros still on the hunt for the perfect partner.
In Europe, it was Th0masHD and trippernn who emerged victorious after Round 2. They placed 3rd in last season’s FNCS and will be looking to keep the momentum going.
Other big names inside the top 10 included Kami and Setty, and JannisZ and Vadeal.
A particularly exciting newly formed duo is Anas and Queasy, who finished in 6th. Their playstyles complement each other very nicely, plus they also came 4th in the Sommerset Cup, and even teamed up with Th0masHD to win both the EU and NAE Zero Build Trios Cups on Friday!
Despite a decent 10th place performance, Hen and Pinq won’t be sticking together. Pinq was supposed to be flying to the US to pair up with Clix, but Visa issues meant a last-minute change of plans.
Unfortunately, this failed first trial leaves both Pinq and Hen still scrambling to find someone for Season 3.
However, across the pond, Clix has had more luck quickly locking in a duo. He will be playing with two-time FNCS champion Duke. They did narrowly miss qualification for this weekend’s Cash Cup Final, but there is definitely potential there.
The number 1 spot on NAE went to Cented and Cold, who have now won four of their last eight Cash Cup Finals. In C3:S2, Cented picked up his 5th FNCS silver medal. Surely he’s going to get his hand on that Pickaxe of Champions eventually.
After playing together since before the Fortnite World Cup, FaZe boys Dubs and Megga split at the end of last season. Dubs will be teaming with Degen going forward, and a 3rd place finish in the Cash Cup has them off to a fantastic start.
There’s another dangerous looking new duo sitting in 8thplace too; Peterbot and Rocaine. Personal differences came between reigning FNCS champs Peterbot and Bylah, but the former has already found a strong replacement and they appear to be a good match.
With a little under two weeks to go until Season 3 FNCS Qualifiers begin, the folks who did well this past weekend are in prime position to pop off. Those who are still yet to finalise a duo will need to put some serious time in to be ready for Week 1.
