Most users like to show off among others through in-game skins. It is mainly because they help in distinguishing the difference between a newbie and a pro player. Thus, Epic Games recently organized a new Gamora Cup for users with a high skill-set to get their hands on free Gamora skin. Here’s everything you need to know about the new tournament.

What is the major purpose of the new Fortnite Gamora Cup?

The Gamora Cup will take place on August 11, allowing players to get on one of the most popular Guardians of the Galaxy character outfit, Gamora, before its debut. In order to participate in the cup, your account needs to have two-step verification enabled and you need to be level 30 or above.

The tournament will be for Duo parties and will offer rewards to the best Duo teams in the competition. Furthermore, the teams that perform the best in each region will receive the Gamora skin for free and her cloak back bling.

Surprisingly, you only need to earn eight points to instantly unlock the Daughter of Thanos in case you are not confident in your skills. Naturally, all the rewards will be based on your teams’ performance and ranking on the leaderboard.
