This Wednesday, Fortnite will launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative mode where players will compete in a 1v1 fight in custom-built arenas. As the name suggests, Fortnite Box Fight will see players fighting one-on-one within one tile of each other and inside a box.
Last month, Epic Games celebrated Fortnite’s third anniversary by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest, where players took the opportunity to design their own custom Box Fight maps. HassanFTN and Shride were the two players to win the contest and their maps will feature on Wednesday.

Unlike Wild Wednesdays, this week’s Fortnite Box Fight tournament will have real incentives for the top-performing players as nearly $100,000 is up for grabs. Here’s all you need to about the Fortnite Box Fight tournament.
Similar to the weekly cash cups and contender cups, players do not need to register to compete in Box Fight. However, players will need to be Open League (Division II) and above in Arena to participate on Wednesday. The Box Fight tournament start date is October 28. The event will be concluded on the same day over a three-hour window, played respectively in the seven regions.
Each player can play a maximum of 35 matches. It will be crucial for players to play as many matches in their allotted window to rack up the points. This will determine their final placings.
Speaking of points, the system will be different from traditional Fortnite battle royal tournaments. As Box Fight will essentially be a showdown between two players, elimination points will carry no significance. Instead, placement points will determine the final rankings. A player will get one point for every win and none for each loss during the session.

In Europe, the winner will win a whopping $5,000, while the player finishing second and third will win $4,000 and $3,000, respectively.
