By now, Epic Game's Summer Skirmish is in the books, but we're still talking about the insane game play that we witnessed. With over $8 million in prizes to be won over the 8-week contest, it drew in gamers from all over the world to compete. With an insane amount of shots, crazy builds, and some of the best game play we've ever seen – it's no wonder that this was one of the most epic battles Fortnite players had ever witnessed. FaZe Clan's pro Fortnite team also brought along their newest member, Nate Hill, who proved to be a mega powerhouse in game and throughout the competition.
The newbie isn't so new...
Our team for Summer Skirmish consisted of our pro Fortnite FaZe Clan team: Jaomock, Nate Hill, Replays, Tennp0, and Tfue. Throughout the 8-week tournament, the team absolutely amazed the others on the field and walked away with over 10% of the prize purse. However, it was the newbie, Nate Hill, who pulled out a crazy win and walked away with 4th place on September 3rd, 2018 – earning $120,000.
He was only beat out of that first place spot on the last day of the tournament due to a glitch with the pickaxe that wouldn't allow him to bust his way through as the circle closed in. Without that glitch, we can't help but wonder if he wouldn't have finished at 1st or 2nd.
Interviewed by some of the best
Afterwards, Nate was interviewed by Dextero.com. When they asked about his win, he replied: “That's a good day's work, I'd say.” “I'd say that's light work.” Of course, he was extremely grateful as well to be at the competition and took time to encourage others out there who were dreaming of becoming professional gamers. After the competition and interviews were over, his YouTube Channel shot up to over 115K subscribers and continues to grow as everyone wants to see the insane game play that put Nate Hill in this position.
