The format and prize pool breakdown for the $3 million Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-AM Tournament have been revealed.

Taking place at the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, the Fortnite: Battle Royale Pro-Am Tournament will feature 50 streamers and content creators pairing up with 50 celebrities from different backgrounds.

Although a prize pool of $3 million will be offered by Epic Games for the tournament, all of the proceeds will go towards different charities chosen by the winning teams following the event.

Even though a massive amount of hype was generated for the Pro-AM, not much was known about the actual format prior to the tournament until right before.

With just minutes to go before the competition kicked off, it was announced that a total of three matches will be played on-stage for viewers to enjoy. 

The first match will pit all of the players against one another in a Solo’s game, with the second being the first look at teams playing together for a chance to warm-up. The final match will be the one that counts towards the placings for the $3 million prize pool.

The full prize-pool breakdown can be viewed below, with more information on the Fortnite Pro-AM including teams, live stream details, and much more found right here.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
