Epic Games

At long last, it has finally been revealed that Venom is coming to Fortnite, and if you want the chance to unlock him early, you’ll have to participate in the Venom Cup.

This upcoming tournament will take place on November 18 and will feature the Marvel Knockout LTM, so it won’t be like your traditional tournament.

If you played in the previous Marvel Knockout Super Series, then you know what to expect here as things are pretty much the same, but if this is your first rodeo, then there’s some stuff you’ll need to know.

Here’s how you’ll be able to play in the upcoming Venom Cup and earn the chance at unlocking the skin early.

Grab Your Duo

Like the Black Widow Cup, the Venom Cup will be in the Duos format, a departure from the Trios format that the first two tournaments had.

Outside of that, there will be a lot of familiarity here. Here are the placements you’ll have to hit in order to actually win the cosmetic bundle.

  • Europe – Top 1,200
  • NA East – Top 750
  • NA West – Top 300
  • Brazil – Top 300
  • Asia – Top 150
  • Oceania – Top 150
  • Middle East – Top 150

Item Shop Release?

Like every tournament skin before, Venom will be in the Item Shop after the tourney wraps up. There’s a chance it could be there as early as this week, so make sure you save your V-Bucks.

The price hasn’t been revealed yet, but you can likely count on it being around the same as Black Widow, Daredevil and Ghost Rider have been, where it’s 1,500 V-Bucks for the skin alone, but a bit more for the whole bundle.

Venom’s bundle will include the following:

  • Venom Outfit
  • We Are Venom [Built in] Emote
  • Tendril Tote Back Bling
  • Symbiote Slasher Pickaxe

With the release of Venom, this will be the last of the tournament skins, so those who are hoping for more characters will be out of luck, at least through the Marvel Super Series.
