Fortnite News – Fortnite: Best Trios Heading Into FNCS Chapter 2
ESTNN highlights some of the best Fortnite trios heading into FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 6.
The eighth installment of the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) competition is less than one week away. Competitive players have had one month to learn what Chapter 2 – Season 6 offers and prepare for the task ahead. Epic Games issued some noteworthy changes for this season’s FNCS. Most notably, the top three teams from each weekly qualifier will move directly to the Grand Finals. Those who don’t finish top-three need to earn consistent Series Points per week to push themselves through to the Semi-Finals.
Many teams have emerged as the favorites in Chapter 2 – Season 6. However, some of the best won’t have a chance to compete until the Grand Finals. Epic put a rule into place in Season 5 that automatically advanced the top three teams from last season’s finals to the Season 6 Finals.
Today, ESTNN will highlight teams in both the NA East and European regions that stand out as front runners. With that said, we are leaving off teams that have advanced to the Grand Finals since we won’t see them in the FNCS until then.
Here is the complete list of trios in both regions that will wait in the Season 6 Finals:
- Guild Hen, Guild JannisZ & Chapix
- Guild Flikk, Guild Anas & Gamma Th0masHD
- Wave Vadeal, Rezon ay & BL Noahreyli
- G2 Jahq, 1% Acorn & LG Slackes
- Commandment, FaZe Cented & NRG Edgey
- BBG Bucke, BBG Khanada & G2 MackWood
Now, let’s take a look at the trios that are trending upward and should make a significant splash in FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 6.
Reverse2k, Deyy & Mero

Chapter 2 – Season 4 FNCS Champions made out nicely in Season 5. While the top three teams from the last FNCS secured a spot in the Season 6 Finals, Reverse2k, Mero and Deyy said no thank you. Their fourth-place finish meant they each took home $20K USD and will not have to sit out all of the Season 6 Qualifiers.
Tournament practice stands as the best measuring stick of any team’s capabilities, and high-level training is infinitely more valuable than a guaranteed seat in the FNCS Finals. We’ve seen what these three players can accomplish when they are firing on all cylinders. Added practice in the weekly qualifiers will only improve their chances. Expect Reverse2k, Mero and Deyy to make a run at their second FNCS title.
Clix, Bizzle & Bugha
5th FNCS Finals ($54,000) a little upset with our performance but either way had a sick comeback, ggs to everyone and we’ll be back for next FNCS 💙🙂 pic.twitter.com/YpmZrN7hcn

The combination of Clix, Bizzle and World Cup Champion Bugha emerged seemingly out of nowhere last season. Bugha had briefly joined Stretch and Saf during Zayt’s brief retirement but lost his spot on that team when he returned. That situation left Bugha with limited options until Bizzle and Clix were looking for one. It only made sense for these three to combine forces, given their mixture of mechanics and game sense.
Like our last highlighted trio, Clix, Bizzle and Bugha finished FNCS Season 5 outside of the top three. Many predicted them to win, but again, finishing in fifth is mostly a positive result. The door is now open for Clix, Bizzle and Bugha to make a statement in the FNCS Qualifiers and pursue the elusive Axe of Champions.
Avery, Stretch & Saf

Long-time teammates Stretch and Saf needed to fill their third roster spot, with Zayt once again unsure of his future. After returning midway through last season from retirement, Zayt rejoined Stretch and Saf. The three top players finished the FNCS in eighth place, a result that no one expected. Zayt announced that he’d once again retire from competitive Fortnite a few days ago.
It seems Stretch and Saf will stick with FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 1 Champion Avery as their third. There is not much tape on these three since they started playing together. However, a fourth-place finish in the FaZe Clan Elite Cup is a surefire confidence booster. This trio is one to watch for as we rapidly approach the season’s flagship event.
Andilex, Xsweeze & Snayzy
— Andilex (@AndilexFN) April 19, 2021
It’s not an understatement to call Andilex, Xsweeze and Snayzy one of the best trios in Europe. Their track record since the start of Season 5 is nothing short of immaculate. They’ve won four tournaments and finished just outside the top-three in the last Fortnite Champion Series.
Andilex, Xsweeze and Snayzy were one placement off, guaranteeing themselves an FNCS Season 6 Finals spot. Expect to see this European trifecta to top leaderboards and coast to the Semi-Finals. They’ll do so with less resistance, considering last season’s top three finishers will sit and watch until the Grand Finals.
TaySon, 4zr & Nayte
— GUILD TaySon (@taysonFN) April 15, 2021
Apart from Andilex’s team, you might not find a more impressive trio than that of TaySon, 4zr and Nayte. This Slovenian, French and Swiss combination won the first Cash Cup of Season 6 and followed that with a win in the first-ever DreamHack Cash Cup Extra. It’s no surprise to see TaySon riding high once again, especially considering he is arguably the best player in Fortnite today. Having two complementary pieces like World Cup Finalist Nayte and well-rounded talent 4zr indeed makes it easier.
TaySon’s made it clear that he wants to be the best and that determination comes down to the results. After finishing eighth in FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 6, TaySon wants to earn another Axe of Champions. That could come to fruition if he, Nayte and 4zr keep up this remarkable run of results.
Umplify, Matsoe & Benjyfishy

The return of Mongraal, Mitr0 and Benjyfishy (MMB) didn’t go according to plan. This once prolific trio split shortly after their reunion. As a result, Benjyfishy found himself with two underrated Danish players known as Matsoe and Umplify. Benjy meshed well with his new teammates, and their synergy carried them to a respectable fifth-place finish in FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 5.
Benjy, Matsoe and Umplify stuck together and are one of the front-running teams this season. This trio’s results in Season 6 include a 4th, 31st, 13th and 7th in various tournaments, including Trio Cash Cups. Benjy could very well be on the way to his first FNCS title, given his trio’s steady improvement since Season 5.
The FNCS Chapter 2 – Season 6 action gets underway this weekend, where all seven competitive regions will compete in the first of three weekly qualifiers. ESTNN will provide coverage throughout the entire season, so be sure to check back here for the latest news!
