The fifth and penultimate week of the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition series continues with the mid-week Trials, which features a challenge called Trap Ball.
Trap Ball is a tournament style challenge which features players from all five Clubs sorted into a 256 person single elimination bracket.
Each match of the competition features two players from different Clubs, who will need to party up and queue into the Playground mode of Fortnite.
The premise of the competition is simple – the two players need to find and activate a ‘Spiky Stadium’ item, loot up on plenty of Impulse Grenades, and then try to eliminate each other within the arena.
Players can only use Impulse Grenades and nothing else; shooting, building, using shields, or exiting the arena is not allowed. A player is considered eliminated if they are downed by one of the Stadium’s traps, knocked out of the arena’s boundaries, leave the arena, or break any of the rules.
Although the tournament is not being live-streamed on the official Fortnite Twitch channel, Epic Games have still provided the tournament brackets for both the North American and European regions, which can be found below:
Although the players’ progress can be seen in each region’s bracket, the winners and final placements will not be officially announced until both region has completed their turn of the competition.
About the Fall Skirmish
The Fall Skirmish is a set of Fortnite competitions that are played over a six week period, with a total of $10 million in prizes awarded throughout.
Each week’s competition features two portions – a competitive tournament that is played every Friday, and weekly trials that are held throughout the week.
In both halves of the competition, players are awarded both prizes and points, which go towards their respective Clubs. Members of each Club will also receive a prize after the Fall Skirmish fully concludes, based on how well their Club placed at the end of the series.
