Tuesday Night Fortnite presented by Fanatics is a weekly Fortnite competition featuring the NFL’s best talent teaming up with Fortnite’s best streamers. Here’s everything you need to know about the event.
Tuesday Night featuring Fortnite is the hottest new collaboration between Fortnite and the NFL. Presented by Fanatics and streaming live from Twitch.tv/FYBtv, you can catch all of the action every Tuesday night at 8:00 pm ET.
This Tuesday night matchup is sure to be entertaining. Denver Broncos tight end Jake Butt teams up with Stonemountain64 to face off against Arizona Cardinals guard Justin Pugh and the Edit God himself, Nick Eh 30.
The inaugural week of the best new Fortnite competition showcased Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi and streamer Sceptic defeating New York Giants TE Evan Engram and Raysfire. You can catch up on last week’s action by clicking here.
If you haven’t heard of this new weekly event yet, here’s a breakdown.
Week two match up: Jake Butt (Denver Broncos) and Stonemountain64 vs. Justin Pugh (Arizona Cardinals) and Nick Eh 30.
Denver Broncos second-year TE Jake Butt recently suffered a very unfortunate ACL tear, ending his season too early. Butt was fitting nicely into his role with the revamped Broncos offense until suffering his second season-ending injury in as many years. Look for him to be a real contributor next season once healthy.
Justin Pugh is a veteran guard playing for the Arizona Cardinals after being drafted by the New York Giants in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. Pugh recently signed a whopping 5-year $45 million contract, solidifying his future with the Cards. Let’s see if his Fortnite play is as good as his on-field play.
Tonight’s streamers are two of the most entertaining in the business. If you aren’t familiar with Stonemountain64, you should be. He occasionally plays a military-styled game in full character. If you haven’t seen this yet, get ready to dive into a YouTube wormhole.
On top of his wildly entertaining “Yolo” series streams, Stonemountain64 also compiles top plays and runs play-by-play streams with unknowing gamers. His wildly entertaining streams have earned him a nomination for “streamer of the year” at the Esports Awards. Well deserved.
Nick Eh 30 is no slouch either. With over 1900 wins, he dominates the game with ridiculously skilled build battles. He’s a positive influence and a very knowledgeable player who often teaches while he streams.
Nick is also currently competing in the Fall Skirmish series alongside the world’s best streamers. Watching even a few minutes of his gameplay and hearing him explain his tactics makes average players feel like they can start racking up wins.
Don’t take my word for it: Here’s a clip of him and the squad collecting a cool 56 eliminations in a single match. My crew doesn’t get 56 eliminations in a week, let alone a single match.
This is sure to be a very entertaining week. Tune in not only to watch a couple of great football players go at it, but also to learn a thing or two about how to be a top Fortnite player. If nothing else, you can get some ideas from Stonemountain64 on how everyone should be narrating games.
Tuesday Night featuring Fortnite is coming your way tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 9, at 8:00 pm ET on Twitch.tv/FYBtv. You can catch Jake and Justin on the field in next week’s Thursday Night Football game.
Enjoy all of the action!
