How to win a PS5 & free skin in the Fortnite Generations Cup

Sony and Epic Games have created a brand new exclusive tournament for PlayStation players: the Generations Cup.

Published

With Fortnite Season 5 well underway, Epic Games keeps giving fans something new to be excited about. Now there’s a brand new tournament, exclusive for Playstation users, that has a PS5 as the fabulous prize.

Epic Games and Sony have something special planned for Fortnite players. There is a new tournament on its way called The Fortnite Generations Cup. This event is scheduled for December 18, and only PlayStation users can participate in it.

You will have a chance to compete against other console players for the chance to win a PS5 console, along with some brand new Fortnite skins. If you place in the top percentile, then you’ll also get exclusive new cosmetics.

Here’s everything you need to know about this tournament.

You will face off against other players in Fortnite matches and face a lot of intense competition, considering the prizes’ quality. A PS5 isn’t the easiest console to acquires, so earn those points, and be ready for a real fight.

You’ll get a point for each elimination. Here is the point format of the tournament:

  • Victory Royale: 10 Points
  • 2nd – 5th: 7 Points
  • 6th – 15th: 5 Points
  • 16th – 25th: 3 Points
  • 25th – 50th: 1 Point

The PS5 is reserved for those who come in first place. Meaning if you’re joining this tournament just for the next-gen console, then you’ll have to put in ten times as much effort to beat the other competitors that you’ll be facing off against.

Even if you don’t come in first, there are still some great rewards in this tournament. Placing in the top 2,400 in Europe grants you the exclusive Indigo Kuno skin pack. Being in the top percentile will also get you the Back Bling.

These are the placement thresholds for every region:

Europe

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 2,400th:  “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

NA East

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 1,500th: “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

NA West

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 600th: “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

Brazil

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 600th: “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

Asia

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 300th:  “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

Oceania

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 300th: “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

Middle East

  • 1st: PlayStation® 5 console
  • 1st – 300th: “Indigo Kuno” In-game Cosmetic Outfit and Back Bling

This joint effort by both Sony and Epic Games to have a tournament for PlayStation Fortnite players is commendable. You have a chance at winning a valuable prize and improve your own skills as you take on some of the most experienced Fortnite veterans.

If you own a PlayStation and have an Epic Games account, then you can pick up a Cloud Striker skin bundle from the shop for free right now.

At the moment, we haven’t heard anything from Epic Games or Microsoft about plans for a similar tournament aimed at Xbox players. If we do, we’ll be sure to update you.

What Are Donation Boards in Fortnite?

The Donation Boards on Fortnite Island look like any regular boards with flyers on them. Once you interact with them, you’ll get a chance to decide which item should be brought to the map.

You can donate 50 Gold Bars towards whichever item you want to see as future loot, with the first item to hit 100% Funded becoming immediately unlocked and ready for use.

There are plenty of unique weapons to choose from in Fortnite Season 8. These include the new Sideways weapons and the few Exotic Weapons currently left in the battle royale.

By donating to these boards, you have the rare opportunity to decide which of these fantastic weapons can become easily accessible to you the next time you hop into a match of Fortnite.

Donation Boards are mainly located next to POIs on the map. You can currently find a total of 12 scattered around Fortnite Island, and you can often find Turret Boards right next to them.

Once you get to one of these, you’ll have the chance to decide which weapon makes its way to Fortnite Island. This gives you more control over the Battle Royale than before.

Be sure to cast your vote when you come across one of these. For more Fortnite, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL and check out the Gold Cube location and travel path in Fortnite Season 8.

Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8

Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.

Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.

The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”

Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.

Armored Walls Trap in Fortnite Season 8

Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.

These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.

How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite

Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.

The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
  2. Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
  3. Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface

And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.

Fortnite is nearing its fourth birthday, and there’s a full in-game event coming so players can join in with the celebrations.

Fortnite birthday cake and present

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since Fortnite began taking over the gaming world, but it’s true. Once again, Epic is celebrating in style with a special in-game Fourth Fortnite Birthday event. We’ve got the lowdown right here.

Fortnite Season 8 is a throwback in many ways, mainly thanks to the return of Kevin and his fellow alien Cubes. That’s why it’s fitting that the new season coincides with the anniversary of the battle royale’s release.

Fortnite has evolved a lot in the last four years, popularising features like the Battle Pass along the way.

So, to celebrate, Epic is launching a Fourth Fortnite Birthday event for players to dive into, packed with plenty of Quests and rewards.

This special Fortnite Birthday event will kick off on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST, coming via an update that will be available to download on the day.

Fittingly, the Fortnite Birthday event festivities will last for four days, ending on September 28, 2021. The game’s official birthday is in the middle of the event on September 26.

Throughout the Fortnite Birthday event, players will be able to spot birthday cakes scattered around the island. Eating these baked goods will offer valuable health and shield boosts.

Birthday presents will also be returning from last year. These can be thrown onto the ground and contain rare loot.

Fourth Fortnite Birthday Quests & rewards

As part of the celebrations, players will have the chance to complete themed Quests to earn birthday rewards and XP.

These will also go live when the event starts, on September 24, 2021, at 6 AM PT / 9 AM ET / 2 PM BST.

Among the rewards will be the “4 Me???” Back Bling, “Hooplah Hammer Pickaxe, and “4? Score!” Emoticon.

Epic is yet to confirm what the birthday-themed Quests will entail, but be sure to check back here for the latest updates.
