Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 - Competitive Update

Welcome to Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 2 and a new competitive update. In Chapter 4 Season 2, competitive Fortnite will include FNCS Major 2, and a shake-up with new formats of Zero Build, Cash Cups, and more Victory Cash Cups.


Battle Royale

The following Arena playlists will remain available throughout Chapter 4 Season 2:

  • Solo
  • Duos
  • Trios

Hype Reset

Your Hype has reset back to 0 with the new Season's launch. Similar to last Season, by reaching Contender Rank, eligible players will be able to compete in cash-prized tournaments throughout the Season. Players will be required to achieve Champion League in Battle Royale Arena to be eligible to compete in FNCS Major 2. Zero Build competitions that are open to all players and do not require any Arena ranking will also be offered.

FNCS Major 2

Find your Duos partner and prepare for FNCS Major 2 to begin on April 13, 2023! FNCS Major 2 will not be using the Divisional Cup system, in an effort to allow more players to compete in FNCS. Epic says they've "learned a lot" from the Divisional Cup system and may bring it back in a future Season with a new, improved format.

In the FNCS Weekly sessions during FNCS Major 2, scores will be combined across both Thursday’s and Friday’s FNCS Major Weekly Competition sessions. Following the conclusion of the Friday session, the top 50 duos from each region will qualify for that week’s FNCS Major 2 Weekly Finals.

At the end of each weekly FNCS Major 2 competition, every duo that competed will be awarded Series Points based on their results from that week. The top 40 duos that earned the highest cumulative points on the Series Leaderboard across three weeks will qualify for the FNCS Major 2 Grand Finals.

  • Week 1 (3 days of competition)
  • Week 2 (3 days of competition)
  • Week 3 (3 days of competition)
  • Surge Week (Last chance to qualify)
  • Grand Finals (2 days of competition)
