One of the most exciting aspects of Fortnite’s High Stakes event, which will begin this week, is the all-new cosmetic set that comes with it.

First and foremost in that set is the Wild Card outfit which, as was initially predicted in a number of leaks, will be customizable.

With a total of four masks/headstyles available, players will be able to choose between a heart, a club, a diamond, or a spade (continuing the playing card theme). The Wild Card outfit will be purchasable in the item shop.

As for harvesting tools, the High Stakes pickaxe will be a crowbar that is unlocked after completing all three of the special High Stakes challenges.

There is an in-game spray and a new “Money” Trail, both of which can be earned by completing a specific High Stakes challenge. The Money Trail is yours for picking up a jewel in 5 different matches of the getaway LTM, and the spray can be earned by dealing 500 damage to jewel carrying opponents

Finally, there will be piece of back bling and a glider to complete the High Stakes set.

The back bling will be called Cuff Case and features a briefcase with handcuffs attached. The glider will be called Safe Crack and quite literally looks like the door to a giant safe… with wings attached:

The Cuff Case and Safe Crack are both expected to be available for purchase in the item shop, meaning that the harvesting tool, spray and Money Trail will be the only items that can be unlocked for free.

Rarities and prices of all items, as well as the official names for the pickaxe and in-game spray, will be added when the information becomes available.

The High Stakes challenges are expected to go live at the same time as the all-new Grappler item and Getaway LTM in the V5.40 patch (which is expected to be released on Thursday, September 6).

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
