Over 500 Fortnite content creators and players have been invited to compete in the Fall Skirmish. They’ll be separated into five different Clubs, and each player will represent this Club for the whole six-week event. 

The five Clubs for the Fall Skirmish are: 

  • Bush Bandits
  • Dusty Dogs
  • Fort Knights
  • Lucky Llamas
  • Rift Raiders

Clubs will earn points in correlation with how the players perform, and these Clubs will be awarded a share of $4 million in prizes at the end of the Fall Skirmish based on total points accumulated.

The first week of the Fall Skirmish is set to start this Friday (Sept. 21). The first pool of players will begin at 11am CT, followed by a second group at 3pm CT. Select players will have the chance to earn points for their Club in new “weekly trials” in addition to Friday’s gameplay.
