Top "Fortnite Battle Royale" players are always looking to be one step ahead of their competition, whether it's by winning tournaments or setting new records. While the popular video game looks much different now than it looked last year, or a year before that, players have adapted and are still beating previous records. Recently, the console Solo vs. Squad record has been beaten, and the player who did it has raised the bar really high.

One could argue that breaking records is much easier now since Epic Games has implemented a mechanic which gives players 50 health or shield after every elimination.

However, there is no doubt that these records still take a lot of skill to break, and it is impressive how skilled some of the top "Fortnite Battle Royale" players are.

The new record has been set

The console Solo vs. Squad record has been beaten twice in the last two weeks. Before that, the record hadn't been broken for almost a year, which makes it one of the toughest "Fortnite Battle Royale" records to break. In April 2018, French player Ft-Fateu set a Solo vs. Squad console record with 38 eliminations. The player had held this record for more than 10 months before it was broken by Brazilian player SlayLeo. SlayLeo managed to surpass the previous record by three eliminations, which was very impressive.

SlayLeo's record, which was set on March 5, is currently the record for the most eliminations by a Brazilian player. German player ApoKxwaii has provided a proof of his 42-elimination game in this mode and is now the owner of the record. Unfortunately for him, the last enemy died in the storm, which prevented him from getting 43 eliminations.

Realistically, it is hard to compare "Fortnite Battle Royale" records which have been set in different seasons. For example, both ApoKxwaii and SlayLeo had glider redeployment mechanic in their matches, as well as 50 additional health per elimination. This wasn't the case with the 38-elimination game by Ft-Fateu last year, which made it more difficult for this player to get more eliminations.

Nonetheless, all of these records are impressive.

Another record?

Considering that the console Solo vs. Squad record has been broken twice recently, it won't be surprising if someone gets 43 or more eliminations very soon. The PC record for this mode has been set by Kamo with 46 eliminations, so we will have to wait and see if a console player can surpass it.
