FORMAT AND RULES
HOW TO WIN:
Code Red features a double-elimination bracket that will start off with 16 teams of two players each. Since there are no Fortnite custom games available to the public, the competition will follow the standard 'total of two' format.
Each round, the Duos that are matched up will queue into a Squads lobby together and try to get more eliminations than the opposing Duo. The team with more kills after two maps wins.
If kills are tied after the two maps, a third map will be played and the Duo to first get to five total kills first winning. If neither team gets to five, the team with the higher number of eliminations wins.
Sabotage is not allowed and will result in a forfeit if there is substantial proof that a team committed one or more of the following violations:
- Damaging any of your opponents Vehicles, Equipment, Items, etc.
- Running over your opponent with a vehicle or Killing/Harming them with a vehicle.
- Using any equipment to interfere with your opponent.
Ex: Throwing a smoke, flash, stun/concussion, etc at your opponent.
