Find out who will wield the Axe of Champions.


Fortnite’s seventh seasonal FNCS competition proved to be an endurance test for those fortunate enough to reach the finals. Three straight months of tireless practice set the stage for an exciting finalè in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. Epic Games committed a dazzling $3M USD to the competition, which includes seven worldwide regions. Day one was just a taste of what might have been the most exciting FNCS Finals that Fortnite fans have ever seen.

Only seven teams could claim their region’s top prize and the elusive Axe of Champions. The top three teams in each area will also automatically qualify for FNCS Chapter 2 - Season 6 Grand Finals. Epic Games structured this iteration to be one of the best, and it delivered on all expectations. Let’s take a look at who can rightfully call themselves FNCS Champions as Season 5 concludes.

It was a storybook ending as this trio completed one of the best seasonal performances the competitive scene has ever witnessed. Each player will walk away with a share of $300K USD.
