Chapter 5 Season 2 Tournaments

2024 FNCS Major 2

2024 FNCS Major 2 kicks off during Chapter 5 Season 2! Grab your Duos partner and prepare for the Open Qualifiers happening from April 12 to April 21.

Ranked Cups

In Chapter 5 Season 2’s Ranked Cups, players will have the opportunity to play Solo, Duos, or Squads against other competitors of the same rank pool, in both Battle Royale and Zero Build. For the Duos and Squads competitions, we are opening up the option to queue as a Solo Fill player so you can be matchmade with other Solo Fill players.

Play at least six matches in any Ranked Cup to earn the Bolt of Light Loading Screen. Earn at least 25 points to earn the Chain of Stars Loading Screen, 50 points to earn the Constellation’s Wings Loading Screen, and 75 points to earn the Pantheon Ranker Glider! This Glider will reflect the rank of the Ranked Cup you participated in at the time, so as you Rank up, you will need to play another Ranked Cup to upgrade your Glider to your current Rank.
