The Fortnite Pro-Am 2019 tournament, featuring celebrities competing for charity, has officially been completed. With that, two players rose above the rest of the competition and won a million dollars for charity.

The Fortnite World Cup Duos has also wrapped up and brought forth two impressive champions. Here’s who won Fortnite Pro-Am 2019 and the World Cup Duos, along with the official scores and standings details.

Airwaks, RL Grime capture Fortnite Pro-Am victory

The Fortnite Pro-Am was a professional versus amateurs tournament that started on Friday with charitable contributions being made in the names of players. There was a total prize pool for the charities of $3,000,000 split among the teams. Every participant had at least $20,000 donated to charity in their name, regardless of their points scored.

There were two main Fornite Pro-Am winners, though. Switzerland’s 24-year-old Airwaks and his partner, 28-year-old RL Grime, ended up taking the trophies and prize money. The duo tallied 52 points for kills during the competition to finish ahead of the likes of Ninja, Dr. Lupo, and Cloak.

Per a CNN report, each of the winners said they were contributing their portion to a different charity. RL Grime said he is donating his cut to American Civil Liberties Union, while Airwaks is donating to World Wildlife.

According to the report, the huge Fortnite World Cup is taking place in the famous Arthur Ashe tennis stadium in New York. Over 180,000 viewers watched online, with 10,000 spectators there to watch in person.

Airwaks, RL Grime also win Fortnite World Cup Duo Finals

For this particular victory, they pocketed a cool $3,000,000 in prize money. That’s cash they’ll get to keep, as a charity wasn’t involved in this tournament. Below is the official announcement after they were crowned champs.
