The Fortnite World Cup will soon begin its Week 6 rounds, giving all players another chance to qualify for the Grand Final. With $30 million available in prize money, as well as paid-for trips to New York for the Finals event, players from all over the world are keen to perform their best.
We’re now past the halfway point of the 10 weeks of qualifiers, and things are getting pretty intense, with top players pushing hard to secure a spot for that July 26-28 Grand Final event. Week 6 brings Duos back into rotation, with competitors pairing up as groups, meaning teamwork and coordination play a big factor in who comes out on top.
Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite World Cup Week 6 Duos.
Fortnite World Cup Week 6 Duos Time and Schedule
If you’re hoping to take part in (or watch livestreams of) the Fortnite World Cup Week 6 Duos event, you’ll need to make sure you’re online at the right time.
Epic Games is allowing three hours for competitors to complete 10 matches. This needs to be done between 4 and 7 PM GMT for Europe, PT for NA West, ET for NA East, BRT for Brazil, AET for Oceania, JST for Asia.
All players are invited to try their hand at qualifying. While you should expect a highly competitive environment, you’ll be matched up with a mix of regular and professional players, so just try to have fun. This is a great opportunity to see how you stack up against the best players in the game!
Fortnite World Cup Week 6 Duos | How to compete
Those who have been following the Fortnite World Cup event will know that to earn a spot in the Grand Finals as a Duo pair, competitors need to first place in the top 1,500 teams during the semi-finals on Saturday, before then topping the leaderboard during the finals on Sunday.
To place well, competitors need to play well, with points awarded for eliminations and position at the end of a round. A Victory Royale (win) results in +10, 2nd-5th earns +7, 6th-10th awards +5, 11th-15th offers +3, and eliminations give +1. Players accumulate as many points as possible in 10 matches.
Players are split into regions, with each area being assigned a certain number of Grand Final spots:
- Europe – Four Grand Final spots for four Duos teams during Week 6.
- NA East – Three Grand Final spots for three Duos teams during Week 6.
- NA West – One Grand Final spot for one Duos team during Week 6.
- Asia – One Grand Final spot for one Duos team during Week 6.
- Brazil – One Grand Final spot for one Duos team during Week 6.
- Oceania – One Grand Final spot for one Duos team during Week 6.
Once the Week 6 rounds have been completed, we’ll have 11 more teams added to the Grand Final roster.
Of course, the Fortnite World Cup isn’t just about earning a place in the Grand Final. There is also a lot of money to be won, and Duos pairs that have already qualified for the Grand Final can still take part in the Week 6 event to secure more prize money from the $30 million pool. This gives the top players a reason to come back every week.
If you do plan to try your luck at getting into the top 1,500 players and qualifying for the Sunday leaderboard race, it’s worth noting that all players are matchmade together regardless of input device or platform. That means console players could go up against PC players!
Fortnite World Cup Week 6 Duos Winners Predictions
The Fortnite World Cup Week 6 event is especially important for those competing in the Asia, Brazil, and Oceania regions. You see, for those areas, only Weeks 2/6/10 provide a spot for Duos partners to qualify. (Weeks 4/8 are prize money only.)
Of course, those in Europe and North America will also be fighting hard, too. Expect to see the competition heating up massively, as there are only so many Grand Final spots left!
Though they qualified back in Week 2, E11 Tschiiinken/E11 Stompy are definitely a combination to watch, as in Week 4 they secured a big $10,000 prize at the top of the leaderboard. They’ll no doubt be coming back for more money during Week 6!
As for those who need to earn their Grand Final spots, expect to see NewG Bouth/NewG Nyydo putting up some big numbers, in addition to Fnatic Motor/Fnatic Verox.
With four Duos spots available to European teams, Exalty Falconly/Exalty Robabz will be pushing hard, and Tchub_/Alliance Ticke could also pull off a qualifying win.
NA East Predictions
Three Duos spots are available to NA East teams. If they manage to perform like they did back in Week 4, these are the expected qualifying pairs:
- 100T Ceice/100T Elevate
- Secret Fuzzy/Hogmanlolz
- FaZe cLoak/Tfue
NA West Predictions
There’s only room for one Duos pair Week 6 winner from NA West. Expect FA TTV HzExtinct/Carson CBC or WBG Rhux/WBG Pika to claim that win.
As mentioned before, there’s a lot of pressure on the Asian teams. Only one spot, but four top squads all fighting for it. These are the four we expect to see battling for the Duos spot for Week 6:
- T1 Quickss/T1 Mudusa
- KGA SexyBoy/KGA backho
- Riddle Fire/Riddle Maufin
Provided they play like they did in Week 4, these are the Duos teams that will be leading the rush to the top of the Week 6 Duos Brazil leaderboards:
- 9z santidead/9z zeko
- INTZ histtory/Damage.-13
- INTZ Faah/Nogz
Oceania’s favorites for Week 6 have to be JAM zoreh/Gheez. This pair managed to earn an incredible 132 points during Week 4. If they can perform like that again, it’s unlikely anyone will be able to stop them.
