Fortnite Announces Tournament Changes, Removal of Siphon on Elimination

Fortnite has announced that all gameplay features introduced with Ranked will be added to competitive tournaments soon, including the removal of Siphon on Elimination.

In a tweet posted yesterday, Epic revealed which gameplay features from Ranked will arrive in tournaments:

  • Material caps at 500
  • Harvesting rates slightly increased
  • Players drop 50 of each material when eliminated
  • Health and Shield Siphon on Elimination disabled

This marks the first time Siphon has been removed from Fortnite since it was introduced to Arena back in 2018, which is why Epic mentioned it in the announcement. Players are not happy about the change, with some on Twitter saying it's "got to be a joke" and "might kill the game".

Epic says they will "continue to monitor tournaments and make changes to loot and other gameplay features as needed". We'll keep you updated.
