The hype has reset back to zero with the new Season's launch. Similar to last Season, you need to reach the Contender Rank to be eligible to compete in cash-prized tournaments. Zero-build competitions are open to all players and do not require any Arena ranking to compete.


We will continue to see the Divisional Cups in Chapter 4, Season 1. The tournament will be in duos, and your goal should be to reach the Elite Cups, where cash prizes are awarded.

Fortnite Divisional Cups begin on January 4, 2023, and will take place each week for players who qualify for the Contender, Challenger, or Elite Divisions. In all regions, there will be two days of Fortnite Divisional Cups per week, on Wednesdays and Fridays. Elite Divisional Cups will not take place during FNCS weeks.

For Elite Division players, scores are combined across both Wednesday and Friday. However, Elite players must compete on Day 2 of the Elite Cups to be eligible to participate in the Elite Cup Weekly Final on Saturday evenings. You will only be able to compete in one region’s competitive offerings this season, so choose your region carefully!


On December 10, compete in this Season's Placement Cup to qualify in your region for one of the three Fortnite Competitive Divisions: Contender, Challenger, and Elite. To access this tournament, you must earn the rank of Contender in Battle Royale Arena before the tournament begins. Players will compete in Battle Royale Arena Duos over two rounds, with the top 1400 Duos qualifying for Round 2. In Round 2, 200 Duos will earn their spot in the Elite Division, and 1000 Duos will make their place in the Challenger Division.

For NA East and NA West, only 100 Duos will qualify for Elite Division, and 500 Duos will be eligible for Challenger Division from the Placement Cup this Season.


Online FNCS competition returns this Season! FNCS will take over Elite Divisional Cups for five weeks this Season, and players that earn Elite Division will unlock participation in FNCS. Grab your duo and prepare for your FNCS journey to begin on February 3, 2023. We will have more details in January for this FNCS and the rest of 2023.

Zero Build Cups are back! Fortnite will host two Zero Build Duos Quick Cups weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays. Be ready to Fill with a different teammate each match in the Zero Build Quick Cups on Wednesdays, and grab a Duos partner for the Zero Build Quick Cups on Fridays!
