The top 100 secure a spot in the DreamHack Fortnite Finals

Hundreds of Fortnite players packed the convention center in Elmia, Jönköping, Sweden this weekend for the DreamHack Summer 2022 festival. For the last two years, DreamHack has remained a stable companion to the scene, having hosted many DreamHack Fortnite tournaments throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 

After two long years without offline events, DreamHack Summer represented a monumental moment. The competition features a $200,000 prize pool split between a traditional Battle Royale event and Fortnite’s new Zero Build mode. As a result, following a series of preliminary qualifiers, the top 100 players in both competitions would secure a spot in the DreamHack Fortnite Finals.

DreamHack Fortnite Battle Royale Sweden Finals

It’s important not to understate the caliber of players involved in the DreamHack Fortnite Finals at the Summer competition. Top players and Fortnite Champions past and present journeyed through Heats to secure a spot to compete for $100,000. 

The Finals began with Vert — a North American player representing Team 33 — earning a Victory Royale with five eliminations. From there, the storyline shifted to two Polish players and duo partners — Kami and Setty of Become Legends — who dueled to close out game two as Kami delivered the final shot. 

Become Legends Kami & Setty battle for the win

Kami took command of the leaderboard. However, some notable names, including Th0masHD, Vadeal, Veno and three-time DreamHack Champion MrSavage, weren’t too far behind. Next, games three, four and five went to NA West player CZR, Th0masHD and Tiltern. 

Kami, Setty and the French player Clement remained steady thanks to their patient gameplay in the placement-heavy DreamHack format. It came down to the last game, wherein the Polish teammates survived late into the match. Ultimately, Setty outlasted Kami in the game, and the two players ended with identical points. However, Setty’s lone Victory Royale broke the tie at 307 points. He claimed the DreamHack Summer title in style and vowed to win the next Fortnite Champion Series event.

Here are the final standings from the DreamHack Fortnite Battle Royale tournament at the Summer competition:

DreamHack Fortnite Zero Build Heat 1 results

Th0masHD appeared yet again in the DreamHack Fortnite tournament in Sweden. After dominating Heat 1 in Battle Royale, he did the same in Zero Build mode with 447 points.

DreamHack Fortnite Zero Build Finals

Fortnite Zero Build had the opportunity to close out an exciting weekend at DreamHack Summer. One hundred of the best players in attendance queued into six matches across several hours, hoping to secure a piece of $100,000. Above all, a pair of German players populated the leaderboard.

Firstly, Hijoe of LootBoy Esports claimed the top spot narrowly over Wave Esports player Vadeal. It came down to the final match, where Hijoe fell early and opened the door for Vadeal. Unfortunately for Vadeal, he failed to earn just six more points. Hijoe’s strategy saw him reach 230 placement points against just 45 elimination points.

Vadeal, who finished fourth in yesterday’s Battle Royale tournament, relied more on eliminations. He managed 18 and completed the competition with 270 points, landing him in second place.

Finally, Th0masHD rounded out the top three with 254 points. The standout player sadly missed the first game, leaving him less room for error. Still, he compiled 20 eliminations—the most of any player in the DreamHack Fortnite Zero Build Finals.
