Fourteen of Australia’s biggest influencers will come together to raise funds for Canteen’s Bandanna Day in a huge Krunker.io charity tournament and it’s all happening tonight.
To promote Canteen’s biggest awareness and fundraising day, fourteen fan favourite creators including Crayator, Loserfruit, Swaggersouls and Fitz, will be taking part in a 7v7 Krunker.io tournament on Bandanna Day, this Friday 30 October.
Krunker.io is a 3D Browser FPS Shooter by Yendis Entertainment that gives power to players to create custom maps and modes.
Featuring a rotating series of unique game modes from Krunker.io, the tournament will see two teams of seven creators going head to head in an effort to secure wins, rack up points and claim victory all while raising awareness for Bandanna Day and drawing attention to the positive impact Canteen support services have on young people impacted by cancer.
Featuring nationally recognisable faces, fan favourites and Krunker.io representatives, the two teams will be vying for a $10,000 AUD prize pool, provided by Krunker.io publisher and developer Yendis Entertainment, to be donated on behalf of the winning team to Canteen.
“Canteen is excited to be involved in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pair with some of Australia’s most influential streamers, helping us to extend our reach into their online community. This virtual initiative will not only allow us to explore and embrace this incredibly rich digital community, it will allow us to reach even more young people impacted by cancer which is our mission.”Cassandra Birch, Community Fundraising Manager at Canteen
Australia’s Misfits crew will lead one team featuring Fitz, Swaggersouls, Inotorious, Zuckles, Mau, Tobyonthetele joined by Krunker.io streamer HeyimZed, and will face off against local talent Loserfruit, Crayator, Berticuss, Aliythia, HeyimBee, Bordie and Quack.
Australian shoutcaster and streamer Aussie Antics will be calling the action throughout the night, as dedicated commentator for the tournament. Each team will play through the following popular map modes as they secure points and climb towards victory.
In an all too familiar game mode, teams will need to defend or defuse a bomb against the opposition. With 2 minutes per match, teams will secure one point if they manage to hold out, or defuse.
Boss Rush will see each team take on the ultimate enemy, a giant Swaggersouls helm. With repeated runs, the team to take down the Boss the fastest will score the most points.
In Hardpoint, players are tasked with sieging the enemy base, all while protecting their own. In a classic case of the best defense is a good offense, teams will play across three different maps to secure and hold a checkpoint in the opposing territory while ensuring theirs is safe.
Deathrun brings a classic FPS multiplayer mode to the spotlight, as teams are tasked to retrieve the enemy flag and return it to their base. This capture the flag format will feature a custom made map.
The tournament is set to be played on custom maps, designed specifically for the game modes and will feature bespoke Bandanna Day branding.
These maps will be available to the public today, Friday 30 October, and across the weekend for a limited time. In addition to custom maps, Krunker.io players will be able to purchase in-game cosmetics for their character and items with the Canteen partner code, with proceeds being donated to Bandanna Day.
Fans of The Misfits, Loserfruit and Crayator will also be able to purchase real life custom influencer bandannas from Scuffed.store/canteen, with all proceeds also going to charity.
“The entire krunker.io team is excited to support the Canteen Bandanna Day in cooperation with Misfits Management Group. We are looking forward to a thrilling event that will support a great organisation”Krunker.io co-developer Sidney De Vries, on behalf of the team.
