Epic Games has made it their mission to offer Fortnite players across the world the chance to participate in competitive modes and play for cash. With the World Cup in the rear view mirror, players are on the hunt for new opportunities to put their skills to the test and earn rewards. The solos cash cup will pit the best of the best against each other for a number of money rewards. It all starts today when the first solos cash cup kicks off in Fortnite Battle Royale.
The solos cash cups differs from previous Fortnite competitive events in that each round only lasts for a day, rather than being drawn out over several days/weeks. Because of this, the prizes are also lower compared to other tournaments and events.
