Each week at CheckpointXP we bring you a moment in esports that’s too close for comfort. This week for CheckpointXP’s close shave we head to the APEX Legends Chairty Tournament, the Shutdown Showdown.

This week’s Close Shave comes from the hottest tournament in Apex Legends right now, thanks to our partners at Ultimate Gaming Championship. All month through April you can Stay home and game to fight against the spread of COVID-19. 40% of each registrant’s fee will be donated to No Kid Hungry, to ensure millions of kids get the meals they need — during school closures and all year long. For more details head to ugcevents.gg/shutdownshowdown. Here are the winners from last weeks tournament clutching out the victory.
