Fortnite 6.1 drops new Quadcrasher and BR tournaments

Fortnite Tournament bugs are being fixed by Epic Games

Epic Games sues Fortnite player who sells cheats online.

It leaked last week but now Epic Games has made it official: in-game tournaments are coming to Fortnite starting today and running through the end of the month.

"Defendants are cheaters. Nobody likes a cheater", Epic Games said in its lawsuit, filed in the Eastern District of North Carolina.

There will be a series of tournaments each with their own date and times, where players begin with a blank slate over and over again.

Compete over the course of several hours to earn points by eliminating multiple opponents or surviving against the competition. The second scenario occurred when points didn't show up right away after players earned them, but the points should be attributed to players' accounts after a brief delay. Teams or individual players with high scores will be placed in matches with other high ranked players for a greater challenge, while those who struggle will be placed alongside beginners.

Fortnite In-Game Tournaments Announced, All Platforms and Control Types to Compete Freely

All Tournaments will have a target score and reaching this will award Fortnite players with a shiny pin.

The complete patch notes for this release can be found on the Fortnite blog. During the tournament, the game's matchmaking will try to get you into games with players of a similar point count, meaning the better you do the more experienced opponents you'll be matched against. This means controller players will be going against mouse and keyboard and so on.

Epic Games has filed the 35-page lawsuit on October 10, and it was recently published on the blog on TorrentFreak. These pins may allow some players to advance further in tournaments or qualify them to take home prizes in the future.

Description: Join your friends every Friday and kick off your weekend with some exciting Squad action. The first big addition in Fortnite version 6.10 is the Quadcrasher, a new vehicle that's all about destruction.
