Fame and gold can now be earned with the new update in Fortnite. In addition to new challenges, daily duos competitions are added to the Battle Royale – and with them daily prize money.
Both competitive and casual players can take on new challenges since the update 12.21 was released on Tuesday. While the Oro-Challenges drop gold in-game items, the Duos Cups offer a daily amount of “real gold coins” as a reward – namely 750 dollars are available daily for the winner of the European region.
Awaken Oro Challenges
Gold King Oro is now available as a skin and can be bought in the shop for 2,000 V-Bucks.
The skin also comes with several challenges that will give you a golden pickaxe and a paint job. For each challenge you complete, you will earn an additional 100,000 XP.
– Help teammates in ten eliminations
– Play ten matches with a friend
– Inflict 1,000 damage to enemies
– Collect 40 medals
– Complete all challenges to receive a reward (pickaxe “Golden Scepter”)
– Complete any two challenges to earn a reward (paint “greed”)
Daily duos competitions
Epic Games now hosts daily duos tournaments in addition to the Solo Cup, which NRG Esports professional player Benjy “Benjyfishy” David Fish enthusiastically shared on Twitter. The Duos Cups are played per region and only the first place winner receives prize money. In the case of Europe, 750 dollars made the start.
The Briton immediately made the Duos-Cup with FaZe clans Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson and played himself on the third place.
The prize money was secured by the Austrian David “aqua” Wang, who can already look back on a successful history in duos tournaments: He took the duos trophy at the 2019 World Cup, and his first victory in the daily competitions came with Klaus “Stompy” Konstanzer.
