Dr DisRespect’s Code Red tournament series is expanding to Fortnite on November 8th and some of the game’s biggest names are competing.
The tournament, which began with PUBG but held the last event in BO4’s Blackout, is put on by the Doc, Boom.TV, and the Esports Arena.
The event will award $20,000 in total prizes split among the top three finishers.
The event will feature some of Fortnite’s biggest stars with Nickmercs, Ninja and DrLupo all verbally committing to playing.
In addition, the Doc says Tfue and Cloakzy are both “loose commits.”
Boom.TV is a Twitch congregator that allows viewers to see the bracket and ruleset while allowing viewers to switch between streams easily.

Duos are matched up in a bracket format, they join squad games and rack up kills against an unsuspecting lobby. The duo with the most combined kills over two games move on.
The tournament is double-elimination and qualifiers are open to smaller Twitch streamers, but most of the spots will be filled by invitation. Only people with Twitch streams with a set amount of followers will be considered for the tournament.
