Dr DisRespect’s Code Red tournament series is back for the second week of action after Hamlinz and Reverse2K won last week.
For those unfamiliar with the tournament structure, the Code Red tournament features 16 duos going head-to-head in a bracket and includes some of the biggest names in the game.
The tournament has moved between Battle Royale games starting with PUBG, making a brief appearance in CoD: Blackout and now coming to Fortnite. The tournament began at 4 PM ET/1 PM PT.
Daequan and Yanni win the Code Red tournament. This is the second week in a row a TSM pro has won the tourney. They beat SypherPK and Symfuhny in the finals. NickEh30 and HogmanLolz finished third.
The event is held through a partnership with Esports Arena and Boom.TV. The official stream will be on Esports Arena’s Twitch channel but all the players will be streaming their POV as well. Boom.TV provides a hub to find the live bracket and complete ruleset. Here’s the official stream:
Format and Rules
For those familiar with KEEMSTAR’s old Friday Fortnite tournaments, the ruleset will be familiar. The duos are matched up head to head and join games as a squad. The two duos drop far away from each other and rack up as many kills as they can on an unsuspecting public lobby.
After two drops, the duo with the most combined kills advances. The duos are not allowed to sabotage the other duo. That means, no attacking of vehicles or throwing any kind of grenade that may impair them in their opponents direction.
The $10K in prizes are broken down with $6,000 going to first, $2,500 going to second, and $1,500 going to third.
Here are some of the most notable duos competing today:
NICKMERCS & Aydan
Vivid & Chap
Natehill & Funkbomb
Daequan & Yanni
Kaysid & Myth
And, of course, Dr DisRespect & Real Kraftyy
