Find out where, how and when you can watch all of this season’s Fortnite Champion Series action!
The eighth seasonal Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) competition is officially underway with the first of three qualifiers. Like last season, Chapter 2 - Season 6 sports an entirely new experience for players and another cool $3M USD on the line. Let’s not forget the elusive Axe of Champions, which all regional winners collect alongside money and supremacy.
As players look to take care of business, the team at Epic Games has once again brought back official broadcasts. Many of the scene’s largest brains, like veterans MonsterDface and ShyoWager, are responsible for reporting the historical significance of these events. Additionally, each broadcast talent involved must call the action, which can be rather tricky in competitive Fortnite.
With all that said, the lineup is in, and fans now know who will be calling the action, providing analysis and when the FNCS streams will occur. Let’s take a look at all of that information and briefly touch on Twitch Drops.

What’s Going on with Twitch Drops?
Since Chapter 2 - Season 1, Epic has offered in-game items for Fortnite Champion Series viewers in the form of Twitch Drops. These rewards typically include a spray, emote, background and a back bling. Today, Epic announced that FNCS Twitch Drops would return this season. Unfortunately, technical issues caused issues in the process. Fans have to wait until later this season to claim their drops.
The first official FNCS broadcast begins this weekend with the European region. Be sure to tune in and see which teams come out victorious as they move one step closer to history!
