The July 13-14 weekend brought the first installment of competitive Trios Fortnite. It wasn’t the smoothest ride, but the initial launch is bound to show a few cracks. Let’s look at how the weekend went.
The first Trios Cash Cup took place on July 13 and 14 with some unexpected changes coming to its material looting. While the changes could be ‘adapted to’, the sudden nature made the tournament a fluke in many players’ eyes.
With that said, the overall tournament experience was still an extremely fun experience to watch. If Epic Games can work out the problems quickly, we might be looking at the new definitive competitive experience.
Fortnite Trios Cash Cup Finals Results & Winnings
As the name implies, winning players in the Trios Cash Cup received mighty dollar prizes for their efforts. Epic Games has decided to take a more spread prize pool approach which rewards the Top 150 players with cash. Here’s how the split worked out for the Trios Cash Cup:
- Top 1 – $12,000
- Top 2 – $9,900
- Top 3 – $9,000
- Top 4 – $8,100
- Top 5 – $7,200
- Top 6 – $6,000
- Top 7 – $5,400
- Top 8 – $4,500
- Top 9 – $3,600
- Top 10 – $3,000
- Top 30 – $2,400
- Top 50 – $1,800
- Top 75 – $1,200
- Top 150 – $900
Competitive Fortnite is currently played across six different regions. The Cash Cup’s total prize pool was $1,000,000 dollars across all regions. Although the North American and European regions are the heavy-hitters, we’ve provided the placements for the other three regions in case you are interested in their stats.
As with all previous online tourneys, the Top 3000 players from July 13 moved on into the July 14 Final. The Top 10’s from each region are listed below. Many major professional names appear like Tfue, Bizzle, Aydan, and more.
All stats below are from FortniteTracker.com. The site tracks stats on all Fortnite players, events, and modes with detailed info on every interaction. You can even check out your own stats and see how you compare to the pros.
Due to complications with the Trios Cash Cup, Epic Games has said that they will be running another tourney later in the month. Additionally, we’ve learned that Trios Arena will remain active ‘until the end of the season’.
We don’t yet know if Epic plans to remove Trios, but highly doubt that it’ll be gone for long. The event got overwhelming support with hundreds of thousands of viewers across dozens of the streams. Trios gameplay speeds up the action, but places a further emphasis on teamwork over individual talent.
We understand that hitches in the normal gameplay algorithm can be hard to deal with, but we’ve come to trust Epic’s speedy fixes. Understandably, some pros were not happy about the first event and want to see drastic improvements before participating again.
As Epic Games releases more information about the second cup, we’ll report on its arrival. Until then, check back regularly for more news on everything Fortnite. We’ll be running expansive coverage on competitive content leading up the FWC Finals, but you can expect our regular content to stay on track as well.
Fortnite leak teases return of Star Wars Lightsabers
The Star Wars Lightsabers could make a return to Fortnite in the near future according to a notable data miner.
A Fortnite data miner has reported that Epic Games readded the Star Wars Lightsabers into Fortnite’s files after the v19.10 update.
Fortnite has held quite a few Star Wars crossovers, but none as ambitious as the live event in Chapter 2 Season 1. This introduced Lightsaber’s into the loot pool for a short period of time.
They were also available for an even shorter period of time from May 2nd – 5th during Chapter 2 Season 2. Since then, players have eagerly awaited their return.
Now, a Fortnite data miner thinks Lightsabers could return to Fortnite sometime soon due to a change in the game’s files.
Lightsabers may return to Fortnite
Epic Games removes weapon and item data from the files when that item isn’t in use. And when the data is readded to the files, it’s a good indicator players will see their return soon.
Fortnite data miner FN_Assist recently discovered that the data for Lightsabers was added after the most recent update. In a tweet, FN_Assist outlines all of the data that was readded.
They claim that this could mean one of two things. Either Star Wars Lightsabers will return to Fortnite in the near future. Or Epic is working on a weapon based on the lightsaber’s pre-existing mechanics.
If Lightsabers are added to Fortnite, we can expect it to accompany a return of skins and maybe some other Star Wars announcement.
Epic Games usually adds crossover content to promote whoever they are collaborating with. Whether it be a new movie or TV series, the Lightsabers could be used as a promotional tool for new Star Wars content.

Fortnite: Where to find Pizza Party item and what it does
Fortnite Chapter 3 is adding a new Pizza Party item that allows players to restore their shields through the power of pizza.
If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.
One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.
It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.
However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.
How to get Pizza Party item in Fortnite
The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.
Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.
As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.
According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.
For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.
