Fortnite is currently running One-shot tournaments every Sunday for eligible players.

Epic Games announced it will be running Limited-Time Mode (LTM) Fortnite tournaments every Sunday—at least through Chapter 2 Season 5. The first of these has already run its course as of yesterday, Jan. 31 for a variety of regions including both NA East and NA West. According to Epic, the mode, itself, will vary each week so players are encouraged to check back in at their own weekly discretion.

Fortnite One Shot Tournament

Players must be at least 13 with parent/guardian permission or 18 years old to enter. They must have Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) turned on, use the same machine for every match they play, and follow all codes of conduct.

The next One-shot tournament will take place next Sunday, Feb. 7, at 5 p.m. EST for NA East players. NA West players will need to wait until 8 p.m. EST—5 p.m. PST.

One-shot tournaments are essentially just self-contained minor competitions lacking in extra dates or stages. The format of each tournament is solo with the entire session taking about three hours to complete. Players earn points based on their ranking per match and the winner is chosen based on the number of points after a maximum of ten matches.

Event administrations are responsible for explaining the mode rules before the event. The upcoming tournament has been noted as "Solid Gold." More information about the rules and regulations regarding these competitions can be found on Epic's Fortnite competitive news webpage.

Good luck, players.
