Fortnite fans can get early access to an unreleased emote if they do well in this one-off Squads event.

From FNCS and Daily Cash Cups to the DreamHack Online Open and World Cup throwback cups, the number of individual competitions in Fortnite has been at an all time high this season. The latest addition to the line-up is the Raise the Cup tournament.

On August 18, squads of four will have the chance to earn themselves the new “Raise the Cup” emote before it is available in the Item Shop. The emote celebrates Liverpool FC winning the English Premier League, which is bound to be enough to put supporters of rival teams off playing.


Contestants will have three hours to play out a maximum of ten matches, earning points based on the following scoring system:

Victory Royale: 30 points
2nd: 24 points
3rd: 21 points
4th: 19 points
5th: 17 points
6th: 15 points
7th: 14 points
8th: 13 points
9th: 12 points
10th: 11 points
11th: 10 points
12th: 9 points
13th: 8 points
14th: 7 points
15th: 6 points
16th: 5 points
17th: 4 points
18th: 3 points
19th: 2 points
20th: 1 points

Each Elimination: 2 point


In order to unlock the emote, teams must finish high enough on the leaderboard.

Europe (1st – 1,000th)

NA East (1st – 625th)

NA West (1st – 250th)

Brazil (1st – 250th)

Asia (1st – 125th)

Oceania (1st – 125th)

Middle East (1st – 125th)

The tournament is cross-platform and open to players from all Arena ranks. As usual though, you must be at least 13 years old to enter and will need to have Two-Factor Authentication enabled, which you can do here.
