MrBeast is known for his unusual challenges and giveaways. On this occasion, it was all about winning Fortnite.

“Thank you Epic Games for sponsoring this video. Fortnite Season 6 Primal just dropped. If you haven’t already, go download. And in this video, Fortnite is going to assign us a random teammate and if we win our next game of Fortnite, that random player gets $50,000 in cash,” MrBeast said in the video.

Soon, he matched up with a player named Joshy. MrBeast played with Joshy alongside his friends Chandler and Landon.

Once the match started, Landon hilariously became the discouraging teammate, but played to his abilities. Landon was soon eliminated, leaving 3 players from their squad in the match.

Joshie continued racking up kills alongside MrBeast, but soon things turned around for the player. MrBeast and Landon tried to make it even harder for Joshy to win. They break down his builds and even decide not to shoot anymore midway.

Later, Joshy decides to go solo in his effort to win the grand prize. In a strange turn of events, Chandler gets knocked out and is eliminated by Joshy after MrBeast agrees to give an extra $100 if Joshy throws Chandler’s character into the storm.

In the final moments of the game, Joshy was left to handle the remaining 3 players. He successfully eliminated all of them to win the Battle Royale.
