Team SoloMid Fortnite pro Hamlinz and competitive player Reverse2K have won the first-ever $20,000 Code Red Fortnite tournament, hosted by popular Twitch streamer Dr DisRespect and BoomTV.

The pair edged out Luminosity Gaming’s SypherPK and Fortnite pro Symfuhny in the grand finals to secure the whopping $12,000 first place prize.


Before reading on, it’s important that you go over the scoring format, in order to make the remainder of this recap easier to understand.


Code Red is a double-elimination tournament that will start off with 16 teams of two players each. Since there are no publicly available custom games in Fortnite, the competition will follow the standard ‘total of two’ format.

Each round, the Duos that are matched up together will queue into a Squads lobby and try to get more eliminations than their opponent. After two maps, the team with the more kills wins.

If kills are tied after the two maps, a third map will be played, with the first Duo to get to five total kills first winning. If neither team gets to five, the one with the higher number of eliminations wins.

Having already beaten Sypher and Symfuhny in the Winners Bracket final, Hamlinz and Reverse2K came into the grand final with an advantage – the only needed to win one match to claim victory.


Their opponents, on the other hand, had two win two in a row since they had reached the final via the Losers Bracket.

Map one of game one proved to be a one-sided affair, as Hamlinz and Reverse2K jumped out to an early lead and coasted their way to a 13-2 elimination advantage.

The second map very much followed the same script, as the eventual champions, despite already having a huge lead, relentlessly pushed for eliminations and won 22-10, winning the grand final with an aggregate scoreline of 35-12.


Here are the final placements for the November 8 running of the Code Red Fortnite tournament, along with the prize breakdown.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
