Epic Games’ Summer Skirmish Fortnite competitive series has returned for its fifth week, featuring a Duos format called ‘King Pin.’

As per usual, this week’s competition will be divided into two regional tournaments, both of which will feature close to $500K in total prizes. The NA tournament will be played on August 10 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 2100 BST.

The Fortnite Summer Skirmish is an 8-week series of competitions where Epic Games will be awarding a total of $8 million in prize money.

The competitions feature a variety of content creators, popular pro players, and top performers from previous in-game events. 

Last week’s winner ‘NotVivid’ will be returning to defend his Summer Skirmish title as he has teamed up with Team Liquid pro player ‘Poach.’

‘Reverse2K,’ who finished in third place last week while also claiming the $50K bonus for having the most kills, will also be playing in this week’s competition and has teamed up with ‘Ninja.’

Here is the full list of competitors for the Friday portion of the Week Five competition:

Invited By Epic Games

Showdown High Performers

The scoring for the King Pin Duos tournament format puts an emphasis on eliminations, with Victory Royales and high kill games offering additional point boosts.

The team with the most points at the end of eight matches wins. Eliminations earn players points towards placement at the end of the event. Earning a Victory Royale will provide a team with a 3x Elimination bonus in the next match.

Elimination: +1 Point
Victory Royale: 3x Elimination Bonus Next Match
7+ Eliminations: 2x Elimination Bonus Next Match

* These multipliers do not stack and only last for the next game. For example, an 8 elimination game with a victory royale would only grant a x3 multiplier to points for next game, not a x5 multiplier for next game.

Here is the breakdown for how the prize money will be divided among the top 20 finalists.

The links to the live-standings and main event page can be found below, and will be updated periodically by Epic Games as the tournament progresses.

The Streamer Bowl II cup took place from 4 PM to 7 PM EST on January 16, and featured hundreds of regular players, along with a ton of well-known streamers like Ninja and Bugha to name two of the biggest names.

There were even a few NFL stars in the mix, including Tampa Bay Bucs Wideout Mike Evans, Carolina Panthers Running Back Christian McCaffrey, and Arizona Cardinals Quarterback Kyler Murray to name a few.

It was a tough battle at the top of the bracket, but eventually, a winner was proclaimed, so let’s take a look at who came out as the winner of Streamer Bowl II.

Fortnite Streamer Bowl II rules

Epic Games
Participants could only drop into 10 different matches for their total score.

The Rules for Streamer Bowl II were fairly straightforward if you’ve watched or participated in any competitive Fortnite events before. Players had 10 matches to drop into Solos games and attempt to increase their score as much as possible.

Five points were awarded per Victory Royale, with three for reaching the top two and one point from there. Kills also were worth a point each, which was of course the main focus for all of our top 10 finishers.
