The 2019 Fortnite Pro-Am was a nail-biter, but Airwaks and RL Grime carried the momentum from their 16-elimination win in Game 1 all the way to the end.
“It was easy,” Airwaks said on Twitch after winning Game 1. “Simple as that. I don’t know if it was 50 pros and 50 amateurs but I only saw 98 bots.”

By the time the whole thing was over, Epic Games rewarded over $3 million to charity. The donations were made to the charities of the choice of the contestants. A few sports stars secured some top-10 finishes in the contest. Josh Hart, who was just traded from the Lakers to the Pelicans, placed third as he was teamed up with Tfue (a World Cup qualifier).
Joey Bosa (Chargers) and Nick Eh 30 placed fourth, BuckFPS and Kenneth Faried (Rockets) placed fifth and Meyers Leonard (Trail Blazers) and Jarvis placed eighth.
