Fortnite’s tournament mode was accidentally leaked by Epic Games recently, and now data miners have discovered almost everything to do with the new mode – including a weekly Fortnite Friday competition.

A video on Epic Games official Fortnite channel showed a new tab called ‘tournaments’, which immediately sparked speculation as to what Epic had in store.

It looks like a fully fledged tournament system will be implemented for all players, available to all players to participate in.

These tournaments will be available in Solom, Duo and Squads, although the description for Solo is currently missing from the data mine.

Duos: Grab a friend and take on the world – until you are the last two left. Three days in a row of tough Duo.

Squads: Join your friends every Friday and kick off your weekend with some exciting Squad action. Can your team rise to the top?

The full details of each tournament has also been leaked, with a different format for each mode, Solo Duos and Squads – with the latter running every Friday.


– Tournament Name: Salty Springs Cup
– Description: One week and three attempts to prove you’re the saltiest that Salty Springs has to offer. Compete to take home a pin in the Salty Springs Cup.
– Mode: Solo
– Date: October 27th – October 31st


– Tournament Name: Tomato Temple Cup
– Description: Grab a friend and make Tomatohead proud. Become legends of the Tomato.
– Mode: Duos
– Date: October 28th – November 1st


– Tournament Name: Fortnite Friday Night
– Description: Join your friends every Friday and kick off your weekend with some exciting Squad action. Can your team rise to the top?
– Mode: Squads
– Date: Every Friday!


As for rewards, the leak says that you will earn “shiny pins” – but it is unknown what value these will hold, or if they are purely cosmetic.

“Info: “Tournament”,”title_line_1″:”Alpha”,”details_description”:”Score up to 6 points every match by eliminating multiple opponents and surviving against the competition!”

Score at least 20 total points in a session to earn a shiny pin!”

There is no indication of when Epic Games will officially add tournament mode, but it looks like it will be before the 27th of October, when the Solos tournament begins.


Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
