Fortnite Hype Night/Nite is a recurring two-day tournament scheduled for Fridays and Saturdays allowing entry to all players. Here's what you need to know about it.

Fortnite Hype Nite

Fortnite Hype Nite is a standard ruleset tournament, with the full rules available from Epic Games. Each elimination earns a player one point. Reaching the top 12 earns another three points, as does reaching the top six, reaching the top four, reaching the top two, and winning the victory royale.

Rather than cash, players earn Hype that then allows them access to more competitive tournaments.
