Fortnite Hype Nite: Everything You Need to Know

Fortnite Hype Nite was revealed at the end of October and the second week has taken place on Fortnite servers. It happens every Saturday and is another tournament like Fortnite Friday, but more for the masses.

Almost anyone can qualify as long as you read the rules stated by Epic Games.

Fortnite Hype Nite Scoring

Victory Royale: 15 Points

2nd: 12 Points

3rd - 4th: 9 Points

5th - 6th: 6 Points

7th - 8th: 3 Points

Each Elimination: 1 Point

Fortnite Hype Nite Schedule

Each Saturday from Nov. 2 - Nov. 23, 2019.

Epic Games goes rather in-depth about cheating, bug problems, and code of conduct. Players should be prepared to be held to a high standard if they end up placing high on a consistent basis.
