With the qualifiers in the rearview mirror, all eyes are set on the Fortnite World Cup Finals in New York City which take place July 26-28 with a Solos, Duos and Creative event.

The Fortnite World Cup Finals are the end of the 10-week tournament that featured $1 million in prizes each weekend.

This event takes place July 26-28 and features a separate day focusing on on the Creative, Solos, and Duos event. Each event features some of the best Fortnite players found around the world so there’s plenty of reason to tune in. The duo tournament will take place on Saturday July 27.

As well as the duo event, 100 of the world’s best players will battle it out in an attempt to claim the $3m grand prize in the solo tournament which takes place on Sunday July 28 featuring some notable names such as Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller.

All the information on how to watch the solo tournament can be found on our useful guide.

How to attend the Fortnite World Cup 

You will be able to attend this event in person or watch online like you’ve been able to do with previous Fortnite tournaments.

Tickets for the event are on sale through Ticketmaster for $50 each if you’re trying to see the action unfold in person. For a much cheaper option, players will be able to tune in from the comfort of their own home.

Musician and Twitch streamer Jordan Fisher will be hosting the event.

How to watch the Fortnite World Cup

The vast majority of fans will be tuning in from home and they will be able to do that through the official Fortnite Twitch channel, the same way they were able to watch the qualifiers. 

Participating players might also have the option to broadcast from their own channels but that might be more like the Pro-Am where they just hosted the official broadcast.

Watching through the in-game client will return as an option too if you don’t want to use Twitch.

Fortnite Season 5 update patch notes: Bounty System, Battle Pass, POIs

After the incredible Nexus War event that saw Galactus finally attack the Fortnite island, Chapter 2’s next update has landed, bringing a host of updates to the game, including new weapons, a Bounty system, and some major map changes. Here’s the unofficial Fortnite Season 5 patch notes. 

Season 4’s dramatic conclusion captivated the world on December 1, as the “Devourer of Worlds” Galactus finally reigned terror over the game’s island, attempting to pull the Zero Point out of the middle of the map to be consumed and end reality as we know it. Thankfully, with the help of some Marvel heroes like Ironman, Thor, and Wolverine, the gigantic villain was banished, but not before he made some startling changes.

Season 5 is set to revolve around the Zero Point, a massive ball of energy that creates the reality Fortnite exists in, and with it now exposed, Jonesy and some powerful bounty hunters have arrived on the island to stabilize it, and prevent any players from escaping the island.

With new weapons, the Bounty system, and some major map updates, there’s a lot to sink your teeth into this season. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite Season 5: Zero Point.

New Weapons and Items

As always, a new season brings new toys for players to try out, and Season 5 is no exception. The new Dragon Shotgun is sure to lead to your enemy’s fiery demise, while the seven new fish available to catch in-game will give you a nice boost when needed.

Fans of Disney+’s The Mandalorian will get to use the weapons they see the character uses in the show, with his Amban Sniper Rifle making an appearance, while you’ll also be able to take to the sky using his Jetpack too.

Interestingly, there are also Gold Bars this season, along with a safe to keep them in. What you’ll be able to do with these bars remains unclear, but it’s likely they are the reward for capturing bounties and could be used to improve your loadout by buying new weapons or items. You can view the full list of new items below.

  • Dragon Shotgun
  • Shadow Tracker
  • New Floppers
    • Tiger Zero Fish
    • Leafy Zero Fish
    • Skull Zero Fish
    • Rift-To-Go Flopper
    • Sandstorm Rift Flopper
    • Zero Point Flopper
  • Bounty Board
  • Gold Bars & Safe
  • Boom’s Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
  • Amban Sniper Rifle (Mythic)
  • Mandalorian’s Jetpack (Mythic)

Vaults and Unvaults

Along with new items, Epic Games have used the Vault system to freshen up the loot pool. Charge and Double Barrel Shotguns are back, along with the P90, Storm Scout Rifle, and Balloons.

Players will be saying goodbye to the Revolver, Fire Trap, Scar AR, and Tactical SMGs. Perhaps the biggest vault, the Pump Shotgun has once again been removed from the game, although it’s always worth remembering that just because an item has been vaulted doesn’t mean it won’t come back again in the future. You can check out the full list of vaults and unvaults below.

Unvaulted

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

Vaulted

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

Of course, there’s also a new Battle Pass for players to grind through this season, with The Mandalorian the stand-out addition, alongside a number of new skins that are unlike anything we’ve seen before.

The full Battle Pass hasn’t been released just yet, but you can take a look at the trailer which has been dropped by Epic Games.

Map Changes

There’s something strange going on with the Fortnite Season 5 map, with some classic locations returning, but not exactly as we remember them. Tilted Towers and Salty Springs have been merged together to create Salty Towers, a hybrid of both original map locations.

Elsewhere, Stealthy Stronghold, Hunter’s Haven, and Colossal Coliseum are the three POIs to be added this year, along with a host of other Season 5 map changes that have yet to be discovered.

Here’s a few screenshots of the new map.

Bug fixes

No Fortnite patch would be complete without bug fixes, and Epic Games have ironed out a few issues heading into the new season, including a fix for keybinding issues and disabling the Bash Burner pickaxe in competitive playlists:

  • Huntress Outfit appearing as Ramirez or another Outfit.
  • Impossible to bind the same key to different actions with Keyboard.
  • Bash Burner Pickaxe temporarily disabled in competitive playlists.
