Fortnite is presenting Fortnitemares Cup - its first PvE Tournament as part of the Halloween event: Fortnitemares 2021.

Fortnitemares Cup will reward the best squads hunting Cube Monsters in the Horde Rush game mode.

Here's everything you need to know about Fortnitemares cup, including when it will kick off, what you can win, and how you can play.


Event Duration

The Fortnitemares Cup starts on October 23 05:00 UTC and will run until October 24 17:00 UTC.

Players will have the opportunity to battle in teams of three during five matches of Horde Rush in Fornitemares to earn as many points as possible.

Fortnitemares PvE Cup


Fortnitemares Cup will be the first PvE tournament in Fortnite, but what is PvE?

PvE or Players vs. Environment is a type of competition where players are not battling against others directly. Instead, they fight against AI to get the highest score or take down the most objectives.

In the case of the Fortnitemares cup, players will obtain these rewards as long as they reach specific point thresholds:

  • Loading Screen - 500 points
  • Feeling Wrathful Spray - 1000 points
  • Ghoul-d Game Emoticon - 2000 points

Note from Epic Games: Prizes may take up to 3 weeks or longer to award all players.

Global Competition

For the Global Competition, reaching 1000 points in Fortnitemares Horde Rush will give players 1 Tournament Point.

After five matches, the cumulative amount of points will be converted into Tournament Points and placed in the Global Leaderboard.

Join Different Squads


In this Tournament, players have different chances to reach the highest scores.

If players get off to a bad start with their current Squad or want to keep shooting for a higher score? They can swap teammates to try again with no punishment.

Each Squad combination will count separately on the leaderboard.

However, players are qualified to obtain the rewards for this event only once despite taking part in several squads.

Make sure you have 2FA enabled on your Fortnite account. You can check your account level information on the Career tab in-game.
