Cast your minds back just a few days to Saturday, June 30, when the rocket launched in Fortnite for players worldwide to view. Players from all around the world gathered in harmony to watch the rocket take off at approximately 10:30 am PST/1:30 pm EST, but one viewing party was crashed by a troll (or unknowing player).
In the video that you can see just below, one player takes advantage of everyone else being distracted by watching the rocket launch. All in all, the player managed to wrack up a total of 48 kills in that one match, setting the new record for a number of kills by a single player in a single Fortnite match.
As you can probably imagine, the victims of the player weren't amused. Epic previously stated that viewing the rocket launch would be a one time thing, and there would be no second chance to watch the rocket taking off. It was definitely a unique event to promote what we imagine is Fortnite Season 5 (launching on July 12), and it's an event that a lot of people had completely ruined for them.
To view the rocket taking off, a large group of people gathered at the top of a massive wooden ramp, as you can see in the video above. The player then shoots the bottom of the ramp, completely destroying it, and sending every player plummeting to their deaths. That's one way to achieve a multi-kill.
