Samsung’s partnership with the developer of Fortnite, Epic Games,  continues in 2020. As a result, Fortnite mobile players are in for a treat. Both companies have come together to launch a new tournament called the Galaxy Cup, which will be held on the coming weekend – July 25 and 26. It is open to all Android gamers with a smartphone that can run the game. The only prerequisite for gamers to participate in this event is that they should have two-factor authentication enable for their Epic accounts.

The Galaxy Cup gives participants a chance to earn the unique Galaxy Scout outfit or the skin along with a Galaxy wrap. However, not all the participants will get the skin. Only the top-performing players of the particular day will be qualified to earn the outfit.

Here is a glimpse at the region-wise cut-off for eligibility –

  • Europe: Top 10,000 players
  • NA-East: Top 7,500 players
  • Asia: Top 1,250 players
  • Oceania: Top 1,250 players
  • Middle East: Top 1,250 players
  • Latin America: Top 2,500 players
  • NA-West: Top 2,500 players
  • NA-East: Top 7,500 players
  • Europe: Top 10,000 players



Unlike the Galaxy Scout, one does not need to face a cut-throat competition for the wrap. You can win one by simply participating in a minimum of five games. However, even if you don’t participate, you still have a chance of getting your hands on the Galaxy Scout outfit and Star Scout Wrap, as they will be available in the Item Shop for purchase later.

To all those who are interested in participating in the Galaxy Cup, you can access it from the 'Compete' tab in Fortnite on the coming weekend. For all those who still don’t have the game, you can download it from Galaxy Store or the Google Play Store.
