DreamHack has announced its third Fortnite Solo Tournament. You can fight for a part of the $250,000 prize pool in three regions. The two North American tournaments are going to play out first, followed by the European one, which puts an end to it all next weekend.

The third DreamHack Online Open Featuring Fortnite event will take place in three regions: NA West, NA East and EU. Everybody can participate and has the chance to win a slice of the prize pool. All platforms are welcomed: PC, console or mobile, if you got Fortnite, you're eligible. If you want to try your luck, you can register no problemo.


Points must be earned in two Heats (qualifying tournaments) per region. Each heat qualifies 750 players for the Grand Final Qualifiers. From the total of 1500 players, 100 will advance to the Grand Final. These 100 survivors will be the ones to take various parts of the $250,000 home.

Points and Money Distribution

Let's talk about the interesting stuff - who's getting what at the end of it.

The points are awarded as usual:

  • 1. 60 points
  • 2. 53 points
  • 3. 49 points
  • 4. 47 points
  • 5. 46 points

And so on until the 50th spot where the last point is allocated. Each elimination brings an additional five points to the eliminator.
