Neymar’s first Fortnite win

Fortnite has done some insane collaborations in the past. They are continuing to do this now as well. But, one that football fans across the globe won’t forget is the Neymar x Fortnite collaboration that came in Chapter 2, Season 6. This was a glorious moment for him and his fans.

What made all these more hyped and interesting was Neymar himself playing the game. The Paris Saint-Germain forward played the Fortnite game with his brand-new avatar. Neymar always has shown interest in gaming. And fans would surely remember the amazing FIFA gaming sessions he has now and then. He had played other games like CSGO and Among Us as well in the past.

This time around, he shared the team with none other than Fortnite’s renowned legend Ninja. Neymar has not won a Victory Royale in the battle royale game, so both Ninja and Neymar were aiming at the goal.

But, as you all know, it is no simple task to get a win in the popular game. Especially with the talented player base the game has. So it was quite the challenge for the gaming partners. They were playing exceptionally well and were close to a victory. But unfortunately, Neymar and Ninja got knocked out by a player named ‘Anonymous 350’.

This defeat did not stop them from pushing for a win. In the second match, they played even better to get Neymar that win. The fight was obviously intense, like always. But it did not stop Neymar and Ninja from having fun in the game. They were seen having a delightful time drifting cars and using hilarious emotes.
