Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2: Complete Tournament Schedule

ESTNN provides a comprehensive schedule of every known Fortnite tournament in Chapter 3 Season 2. 


Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is well underway, and what a ride it’s been so far. Zero Build mode captured the attention of players old and new, while the new mantling and tactical sprint mechanics added a new layer to an already complex gaming experience. The season’s first few weeks offered players of all talent levels the chance to learn the many nuances involved. That sentiment goes double for the talented competitors looking to dominate upcoming tournaments. 

The competitive season begins this weekend with the inaugural Twitch Rivals Zero Build competition, where invited creators will compete for a share of $450K USD. Beyond that, players can expect the usual weekly Cash Cups, new Lightning Cups, and eventually, the Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS). 

Let’s look at the schedule that lies ahead for competitors and viewers worldwide, without any further ado.
