A competitive Fortnite Battle Royale player has shared a clip with the most ridiculous one versus three you’ll see this month.
The player, RichmondJake, took to Twitter with the statement “3 men 1 shell”, and he wasn’t exaggerating in the slightest.
In the attached video, RichmondJake is in an intense 1 vs 3 fight for the Victory Royale and is constantly retreating from his attackers as he runs out of materials to build with.
He tells his teammates that he is panicking before jumping over a small wall and turning to take a last ditch shot at the opponents as they close him down.

Incredibly, the one shot from his Legendary Heavy Shotgun is all it takes as all three members of the other team are eliminated, giving RichmondJake and his team the Victory Royale!
Understandably, the reactions from him and his team range from “oh shit” and “no way” to incoherent screaming and hysterical laughter.
For the unaware, something like this is so unlikely to happen that it is almost impossible to quantify it.
“Collateral” kills do not occur in Fortnite like they might in other games like Call of Duty, so the only way to kill more than one opponent with a single shot of a weapon is for the spread to hit multiple people at once (or use an RPG / Grenade Launcher).
If the spread does hit more than one player, it will not do full damage to either, or any, of them, so each opponent needs to be low on health. On top of that, the likelihood of having three players run at you in the late stages of a game without anyone building a ramp or wall is minimal.
Something tells us that RichmondJake will have this particular Tweet pinned for quite some time…
