The team at BoomTV are sponsoring another Fortnite Code Red tournament with $15,000 up for grabs and some of the biggest competitive Fortnite players you know.
The latest Code Red tournament will be featuring Fortnite and a $15,000 prize pool, which in terms of Fortnite winnings is just a drop in the pond but this is still a hefty chunk of change.
On top of that, some of the biggest names in competitive Fortnite will be making an appearance here so it's sounding like it'll be a good one.
The first wave of invited players has been announced and they are definitely some names you'll recognize if you follow the competitive scene of Fortnite.
Unique to this event is there are open qualifiers so even if you aren't a big-time streamer you'll still have a chance to get in.
Here's a look at who's in so far:

The tournament will be available to watch on the BoomTV website and presumably along with the rest of the players who are streaming. You can also tune into the main broadcast on the EsportsArena Twitch channel.
The action takes place on Thursday, September 12 beginning at 4 PM PST / 1 PM EST / 6 PM BST and will run for about seven hours.
If you haven't tuned into a Code Red tournament before the rules can be a bit confusing. Luckily, we have what you need to know.
Keep in mind these are the rules for the qualifiers that take place on September 10, but if they differ from the main event, we will switch in the new rules.
How To Win
You deploy as a Duo with your teammate. Your goal as a Duo is to get five (5) team games with the highest number of kills. You will be able to play in as many games as you want, but only your five (5) highest kill games (as a team) will count. Note that average placement is the first tiebreaker.
In-Game Settings / Streaming Rules
These events have been exciting to watch in the past so if you're a Fortnite fan you're not going to want to miss this one.
While it's not quite the same level of a Friday Fortnite, it's still sure to bring in thousands of viewers.
