Fortnite: $80K Ninja Battles Week Five Recap and Results

Who triumphed in week five of the $80K USD Ninja Battles tournament series?

Popular Twitch personality Tyler “Ninja” Blevins returned with week five of his weekly $80K USD Ninja Battles tournament series. Since signing an exclusive deal with Twitch,  it seems Ninja was able to establish a more conclusive schedule. Last week, the unassumed trio consisting of Arkhram, Avery and Skqttles managed to walk away with the victory and $25K USD.

After competing in weeks one and two of his tournament Ninja decided to play in week five alongside the previously mentioned Arkhram and NRG Esports player Cody “Clix” Conrod. Other notable professional players to compete in week five include MrSavage, Bugha, Nate Hill, Benjyfishy, Zayt and countless others. Let's take a look at which trio claimed victory in week five of the Ninja Battles tournament series.

NA East’s top trio NRG Zayt, Liquid Stretch and TSM Saf started slowly with only one point in the first match. Three of the final four games played out much better for the owners of Doom's Domain. Zayt, Saf and Stretch sealed the deal with a massive 23-point Victory Royale in the final match. In total, Zayt's trio managed 57 points and walked away with $25K USD ahead of this season's Fortnite Champion Series – which begins next weekend. It was quite the performance out of arguably the best trio in the NA East region.
