Epic has bolstered the Fortnite competitive lineup by announcing regular Cash Cups. This will also include platform-specific Cash Cups. Take a look at the new schedule here.

The Fortnite competitive lineup has been relatively scarce ever since Chapter 2 started. We had the warmup cup for Season 2 of the Fortnite Champion Series, but that was about it.

Well, it appears as though Epic was just letting us get accustomed to the new map before unleashing a slew of regular Cash Cups, tournaments, and FCS qualifiers.

Here’s a list of what’s to come from competitive Fortnite.

Friday Nite Fortnite

Friday Nite Fortnite is a squads tournament that Epic will host every Friday from November 1 – November 29. This is open to everyone, so you don’t have to worry about grinding to Champion League to enter.

The scoring system for Friday Nite Fortnite is as follows:

  • Victory Royale: 15 Points
  • 2nd: 12 Points
  • 3rd – 4th: 9 Points
  • 5th – 6th: 6 Points
  • 7th – 8th: 3 Points

The tournament will follow the traditional format, giving players three hours or ten matches to get as many points as they can.

Hype Nite

Hype Nite is another squads tournament that is open to everyone – regardless of Hype. These run on Saturdays from November 2 – November 23 for all regions.

The point system is the same as it is for Friday Nite Fortnite:

  • Victory Royale: 15 Points
  • 2nd: 12 Points
  • 3rd – 4th: 9 Points
  • 5th – 6th: 6 Points
  • 7th – 8th: 3 Points

Cash Cups

Epic will be hosting solo Cash Cups every Wednesday and Thursday from October 30 to December 5. The Cash Cups will be platform-specific on Wednesday and open to all on Thursday.

This is a significant change and gives console and mobile players more of a fighting chance. PC players have overwhelmingly dominated these competitions in the past. Now, controller and mobile players will have more or a time to shine on their respective platforms.

You must rank in Contender League to participate in these events (2,000 Hype). The scoring system is as follows:

  • Victory Royale: 10 Points
  • 2nd – 5th: 7 Points
  • 6th – 15th: 5 Points
  • 16th – 25th: 3 Points

So, there you have it: a jam-packed competitive Fortnite schedule for the next month-plus. Will you be participating in these events? Let us know in the comments!
