Learn how you can compete in the Gamora Cup to win the Marvel character’s Fortnite set for free!


Fortnite Battle Royale’s latest cosmetic crossover brings Gamora of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” series into the equation. It’s certainly not surprising, considering the number of Marvel characters that have enjoyed the same recognition. Given Chapter 2 - Season 7’s alien invasion, the Gamora skin could not have come at a better time. Epic plans to release the complete set on August 14, but players can acquire it earlier in the Gamora Cup—a duos tournament with the outfit and back bling up for grabs. Join ESTNN as we break down the latest free skin competition in Fortnite.

Format & Schedule

Like the Cammy Cup and other tournaments before it, the Gamora Cup utilizes the duos format. That means players of two can compete for a chance to win Gamora's outfit and back bling for free. It’s certainly not easy since competitive Fortnite houses insanely talented players. However, each of the game’s seven competitive regions has its own predetermined prize distribution. Entrants can compete in all of them if they choose, but in general, the goal is to earn points based on eliminations and placement to secure a high finish.
