Screenrant says “The developer of Fortnite, Epic Games, seems to be cracking down on the wager matches that have become popular among the game’s top players. Wagers are one of the ways pro Fortnite players keep themselves competitive in between official tournaments. It also provides a fun and friendly way for them to engage with each other as well as their fans.
While some of these wagers only involve a small amount of money, some might be worth a significant amount of cash.

Additionally, a large portion of the Fortnite player base are also underage, so even amateur or casual players that become involved in these wagers would also be breaching the same restrictions.”

Initially released in June 2018, the indie hit from developers InnerSloth experienced an immense boom in popularity in 2020 as streamers from across the globe flocked to it. Some streamers have bailed on the party game, but there are plenty still playing it on a regular basis. Among Us had a crossover with Fall Guys in March of 2021, but it now it looks like Fortnite will also link up with the game. When is Among

Dexerto says “While most of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7’s weekly challenges have so far revolved around alien invaders, Week 7’s Legendary quests are a little more obscure, with players needing to find Records and collect Parenting Books from various locations. Another strange quest asks players to construct a Wooden Hatchery, which is used to hold eggs. Whether this is meant for the chickens that run wild around the Island or the recent Alien Parasite invaders, we’ll have to wait and see. We doubt players are going to spend too much time debating the purpose of this quest, though, so let’s get straight to the
