Epic Games

The first big tournament of Fortnite Season 5 is here with the Frosty Frenzy and it’s all players a taste of what to expect from the competitions.

The Frosty Frenzy will be a Trios tournament, similar to the direction Epic is going with the Season 5 FNCS and in 2021 in general.

This means that you’ll need yourself and two other friends in order to compete here. It’s a two-day event over the weekend of December 12 and 13, so you’ll need to make sure your schedule is clear if you want the chance to win anything.

Even if you aren’t the greatest player in the world, there’s still a decent chance that you’ll be able to compete and get your hands on a free spray at least.


What Time is It?

Featuring a $5 million prize pool, a question we’re sure many of you have is when exactly will this even kick off?

According to the official rules, here’s when you’ll be able to play, but you’ll still need to check the in-game Compete tab for the official times.

  • December 11: Sessions 1 and 2 [Middle East]
  • December 12: Sessions 3 and 4 [Middle East]
  • December 12: Sessions 1 and 2 [All Regions Except Middle East]
  • December 13: Sessions 3 and 4 [All Regions Except Middle East]

The first session is all about qualifying for the next, as the top 500 teams from NAE, NAW, EU and BR regions and the top 250 teams from OCE, Asia, and ME regions will all advance from the first set to the next.

From there, even fewer players get a chance to earn a chunk of the prize pool, but at least getting five points gets you a free spray. Here’s how it all plays out.

  • 1st-35th: $1,800
  • 36th-400th: $1,200
