Find out how to win a brand-new Special Edition Fortnite Xbox Controller through your skill in the Fortnite Combine.
It seems like the initial intention of Epic’s addition of the ‘Combine’ game mode was to help fine-tune the new sensitivity settings for console players. Since then, it has taken on a life of its own with the help of the speed-running community.
Part of the reason Fortnite is so great is the number of things you can do in the game. You can play a base Fotnite match or an unlimited number of game modes in a Creative lobby.
The Combine was just the next iteration of this, and players have already started to complete the mode in under a minute.
If you’re someone who have been spending hours practicing the Combine, your skills have not gone to waste. Epic has announced a Combine giveaway with a chance to win one in ten Special Edition Fortnite Xbox One Controllers.
The giveaway is set to run now through October 11, so get in there and start practicing.
The rules for the competition are simple. All you have to do is submit a photo or video of your best time to Twitter with #FortniteCombine in the title.
You must be at least 16 years old to win this prize, and follow the best practices of submissions – found here.
According to the rules, it appears as though Epic is going to pick random players to win the controllers. This is good news and bad news since you don’t have to be one of the fastest times to win a controller.
In all likelihood, though, Epic will be choosing the fastest recorded time as one of the ten winners – so it won’t hurt to try your best.
Speedrunning entered the Fortnite world in a big way through the Cizzorz Death Runs. Players would compete for the best time to gain money and bragging rights, which eventually culminated in the Fortnite World Cup Creative finals in New York – where Cizzorz’s speedrunning team took home the trophy.
Now, some of these speedrunners who made a name for themselves have hundreds of thousands of subscribers on YouTube – all from speedrunning a Creative Mode map.
Best of luck with your Combine times!
