The Fortnitemares Cup will reward the best teams hunting cubic monsters in the Horde Rush game mode.

Duration of the event

Fortnitemares PvE Cup
The Fortnitemares Cup will be Fortnite’s first PvE tournament, but what is PvE?
PvE or Players versus environment is a type of competition where players do not fight directly against others. Instead, they fight against the AI to get the highest score or eliminate the most objectives.
In the case of the Fortnitemares Cup, players will get these rewards as long as they reach point thresholds:
- Loading screen – 500 points
- Spray Feeling of anger – 1000 points
- Ghoul-d gaming emoticon – 2000 points
Note from Epic Games: Prizes can take up to 3 weeks or more to reward all players.
For global competition, reach 1000 points in Fortnitemares Horde Rush will give players 1 tournament point.
After five matches, the cumulative number of points will be converted into tournament points and placed in the world ranking.
Join different teams
In this tournament, players have different chances of achieving the highest scores.
What if players get off to a bad start with their current team or want to keep shooting for a higher score? They can swap teammates to try again without punishment.
Each Squad combination will count separately in the leaderboard.
However, players are only qualified to get the rewards from this event once despite participating in multiple squads.
Make sure 2FA is enabled on your Fortnite account. You can check your account level information in the Career tab of the game.
