Here’s what you need to know about Fortnite Chapter 2 Competitive Season.

This competitive season is pretty crazy, with Epic promising a total price pool of $5 million across all regions and competitions. Keep in mind that also includes the weekly cash cups and what Epic is calling “platform specific tournaments.”

How to Join Fortnite Competitive Season

If you want to get in on Chapter 2’s competitive season, you’ need to put in some work. As was the case in previous seasons, you’ll get to sign up for the Fortnite Arena Mode competitions and earn enough Hype Points to qualify for the Champion Series. If you manage to climb to the top of this series, you’ll see the Champion Series unlocked in the “Compete” tab menu. The Champion Series starts on November 1, and there will be three-round squad events each weekend over the entire month of November.

Advancing in the competitive seasons is as familiar as it can get, with Epic advancing the top players from each week to the Chapter 2 Season 1 finals. Your team’s placement during the FNCS will determine how many series points you earn and where you place on the leaderboard. Those close enough to the top of the leader board will head to the season finals.

Changes to Fortnite Chapter 2 Competitive

According to Epic, there will be ore qualification spots in the individual weekly qualifiers than in the series leaderboard. Epic says the purpose is to give us more opportunities to play with different squads while maintaining an overall balance. Epic also says this move will help maintain the value during the course of the season for squads that want to remain together. However, the be caveat here is that trades between qualified teams will not be allowed this season.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Competitive Season Finals

With November being host to the brunt of the competitive season, December 6, 7, and 8 will be the dates that the competitive season finals take place in all regions.

Fortnite Chapter 2 FNCS Warmups

Epic is hosting an FNCS warmup session the weekend before the actual FNCs kicks off. Obviously, this is a warmup round so there will be no cash prizes or any other type of reward. You will however have plenty of time to hone your skills and get in the zone before the big event kicks off.
