What does this mean? Well, you’ll have to participate in the Summer Smash Cup to gain access to the rewards. It’s unclear whether the Cup is a LAN event or an online competition, but some of the big names like Benjyfishy are traveling to Australia to compete.
If this is an online qualifier, then anyone with 2FA will be able to switch their matchmaking region to OCE and try their hand at a 200+ ping performance.
Some players on the r/FortniteBR subreddit are theorizing that there may be a point threshold to hit as well. Hopefully, we’ll get some more information before the event.
