It’s time to showcase the best Solo Fortnite players on PlayStation. Are you ready?

Along with the addition of Chili Chug Splashes, Tuesday’s Fortnite v18.10 update saw all Arena Hype reset and the end of the competitive preseason. Now we’re straight back into the action with Epic announcing a pair of high-stakes tournaments for certain console players.

The PlayStation Cup arrives this Saturday, October 2 and features a whopping $113,400 total prize pool. It is only available on PS4 and PS5 devices, and an identical event will be held again in November.

This is a Solo competition occurring across two rounds. In Round 1, players can complete a maximum of 10 matches, as always earning points for both placement and eliminations. Only the top 100 in each region will move on to Round 2.

Round 2 is essentially a “Finals” lobby. The same 100 players will battle it out across 6 matches for a chunk of the money. Check out the scoring system below:

Scoring System

Victory Royale: 30 points
2nd: 25 points
3rd: 22 points
4th: 20 points
5th: 19 points
6th: 17 points
7th: 16 points
8th: 15 points
9th: 14 points
10th: 13 points
11th - 15th: 11 points
16th - 20th: 9 points
21st - 25th: 7 points
26th - 30th: 5 points
31st - 35th: 4 points
36th - 40th: 3 points
41st - 50th: 2 points
51st - 75th: 1 point
Each Elimination: 1 point
(Round 2 Eliminations are worth 2 points)

In the larger regions, prizing is split quite deep throughout Round 2, whereas elsewhere you’ll need to crack the top 20 to make money. Find the full prize pool breakdown here:

With only a few days to go, it’s just as well there are no Arena Division requirements for this tournament. Just make sure that your Epic account is at level 30 or above and enable Two-Factor Authentication.

For those using Xbox or Nintendo Switch it may be disappointing to see another major PlayStation exclusive event, but hopefully this means that similar offerings are coming for other platforms too. The $250,000 Console Champions Cup is still scheduled to take place November 5-7, and no doubt Fortnite Season 8’s competitive calendar will throw out a few more surprises.

More details can be found in the Fortnite PlayStation Cup Official Rules. Track your performance via our live PlayStation Cup leaderboards.
