Whether you’re brand new or can crank 90s in your sleep, anyone can earn the Competitor’s Time Brella and Skyblades by earning 75 points in Fortnite OG Ranked Cups. Here’s how to join Fortnite OG Ranked Cups, earn points, and redeem exclusive rewards.

How to Earn the Competitor’s Time Brella and Competitor’s Skyblades Gliders in Fortnite OG

From November 9 – November 23, 2023, Fortnite is hosting several in-game competitions for Battle Royale and Zero Build, split into different ranks and sessions. Each cup typically runs from 5 pm – 9 pm in your region’s local time, but make sure to double-check the time of cup you want to play in-game.

Players who earn 75 points during a cup will receive either the Competitor’s Skyblades or Competitor’s Time Brella, depending on their session. You can find a complete schedule further down this article, but let’s talk about how to earn points first.

How to Earn Points in Fortnite OG Ranked Cups

Points are earned by how high you placed during a Ranked Cup match. Eliminations also net you an extra two points each. You can play as many rounds as you like during a Cup’s active hours, so how you earn your 75 points is entirely up to you!

How to Join Fortnite OG Ranked Cups

To join Ranked Cups in Fortnite OG, navigate to the Compete tab and select the Ranked Cup that matches your current rank in a specific mode. For example, Silver players in BR would join the Silver Ranked Solo Cup. Your eligible cups should appear in the home menu where you normally launch into a match.

If you haven’t been ranked since Fortnite OG started, you only need to play one Ranked game to get placed. To play a Ranked game on console, press up on the d-pad to bring up the mode selection options.

Why Can’t I Join a Ranked Cup?

There are three requirements before you can join a Ranked Cup in Fortnite OG:

  • You must be at least 13 years old (may vary per region).
  • You must have played at least one placement match in your chosen game mode.
  • You must have two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled on your account.
  • You must have an account level of 15 or higher.

Remember, Battle Royale and Zero Build have separate ranks. Make sure you join the cup that matches your rank in that specific mode. Diamond, Champion, Elite, and Unreal have all been lumped in the Diamond+ cups. I can only imagine how sweaty those games are going to be.
