A new season of competitive Fortnite has arrived, and with it is a ton of information and news to stay on top of. From the best places to watch current placements, here’s everything you need to know about the Fortnite Fall Skirmish.

What is it?

The Fortnite Fall Skirmish is a six-week series where over 500 competitors are divided into five clubs (Bush Bandits, Dusty Dogs, Fort Knights, Rift Raiders, and Lucky Llamas) to face against each other in a variety of weekly events. 

After completing each weekly event, skilled players are awarded cash prizes and their coinciding clubs are awarded points. Depending on the total points clubs earn, $4,000,000 in prizes can be won with a total of $10,000,000 on the line including individual and team earnings.

 The skirmish begins on September 21, overlapping the start of Fortnite season 6, and finishes at Twitchcon on October 26-28.

Epic Games will be streaming through their official channels on YouTube and Twitch with hosts KittyPlays and Zeke Mateus (ZekimusPrime).

Players participating in the event can also be found broadcasting it live, including the likes of Ninja whose channel reportedly had more viewers during week one than that of Epic Games.
