You can earn money simply by playing the game you love. The best part? You don’t even have to be a pro gamer to make some cold hard cash. Because Epic Games have created ways for normal players like you and me to make money in Fortnite

Fortnite Cash Cup Explained

Fortnite Cash Cups give players of all skill level a chance to compete for cash prizes. This means that you don’t have to be a pro player to try your luck at the cash prize

Each tournament consists of two rounds. The top 50 teams from the initial round move on to Round 2, where they compete to win the prize money. And one important thing to note is that in Chapter 5 Season 3 the Cash Cups are all duo tournaments.

In the Duo Cash Cup, Round 1 features a three-hour competition stage where teams can play up to ten matches. For Round 2, teams compete in just one segment during their region’s designated time slot, limited to six matches within three hours. After Round 2 concludes, teams at the top of the leaderboard in each region earn cash prizes based on their performance.

Fortnite Cash Cups: How to Participate

To enter the Cash Cups, both you and your duo partner need to achieve at least Gold Rank in Ranked Battle Royale. Once you've met this requirement, simply join together in a lobby at the start of the tournament, select the Cash Cup game mode, and enter the queue to participate. Yes, it’s that simple

You also have to enable your two-factor authentication, so make sure you’ve got that taken care of. But once you followed these steps, you’ll be good to start playing with your duo partner

How are Points Distributed in the Fortnite Cash Cup? 

You can rake in the points by getting kills. Each elimination in Round 1 will earn you 2 points. In the Round 2, that increases to 4 points per kill. Finishing in a high spot will also earn you and your duo additional points.
