The Fortnite Secret Skirmish is sandwiched in between the Summer Smash which took place at the Australian Open tennis tournament, and the ESL Katowice Royale event that will be hosted at the Intel Extreme Masters in Katowice, Poland.

The $500,000 competition will be split into two tournaments - a $100,000 Duos tournament and a $400,000 Solos event.

Cloakzy and Tfue won the Fall Skirmish back in October.

When is the Fortnite Secret Skirmish?

The Secret Skirmish will be played over the course of two days, with the Duos tournament taking place on February 14 from 1 - 5:30 PM PT (4 - 8:30 PM ET / 9 - 1:30 AM GMT) and the Solos tournament on February 15, also from 1 - 5:30 PM PT (4 - 8:30 PM ET / 9 - 1:30 AM GMT).

Make sure to check out our full recap of the $100,000 Duos tourney, which includes a recap of all six matches, video highlights, and final placements.

It's worth noting that Epic Games did make some major last-minute changes to the scheduling and prize pools of the Secret Skirmish just a day before the event was scheduled to kick off.


Where can I watch the Fortnite Secret Skirmish?

Epic Games have confirmed that the competition will be streamed across all of their social media outlets. The biggest Secret Skirmish stream will be found on the official Fortnite Twitch channel, which you can watch below once the second day of action kicks off on February 15.


What is the format for the Secret Skirmish?

Fortnite’s Secret Skirmish is divided into two different events, with a Duos tournament taking place on February 14, and a Solos tournament on February 15.

While the way each event is played may be different, both competitions feature the same scoring system, with points being awarded across six games for placings and eliminations.

  • Victory Royale: 3 Points
    2nd-3rd Place: 2 Points
    4th-10th Place: 1 Point
  • 7+ Eliminations: 3 Points
    5-6 Eliminations: 2 Points
    3-4 Eliminations: 1 Point

Whoever has the most points at the end of the six matches will be declared the winner and take home a portion of the $500,000 prize pool.

The Duos portion of the tournament is now complete, with Ghost Gaming's Rocco 'Saf' Morales and Rise Nation's Ronaldo taking home $27,000.

Who will be competing at the Fortnite Secret Skirmish?

As the Secret Skirmish is an invitational event, Epic Games have selected the 100 players who will be in attendance at the “secret location” where the tournament will be held. 

Competitors have been selected based on their performances in prior Fortnite tournaments such as the Summer and Fall Skirmishes and the Winter Royale, while the top 25 from the Explorer Cup have also been invited.

All 100 players competed in Thursday's randomized Duos tournament, but any allegiances will have to be set aside as they compete in the February 15 Solos tournament, with only player set to take home the grand prize.
