Platform Cash Cup is the name of a competition in Fortnite Battle Royale. This one starts every Thursday at 5:00 US EST. Every session in the Fortnite Platform Cash Cup mode goes on for three hours. Each player is allowed to as many as 10 matches in order to earn points according to a scoring system.

On March 9, 2020, Fortnite Platform Cash Cup was back. It was a little different from what we have seen in the past. The developer of Fortnite called Epic Games came out hot in Chapter 2 Season 2 with the unveiling of another Fortnite Champion Series. It has been a long wait since the final FNCS concluded, and now a new competition is here, this time in a duo format. Along with the FNCS announcement came the return of tournaments that are usually polarizing for the Fortnite Platform Cash Cup. the players have seen Trio Cash Cup in the past, but for the second season of Chapter 2, Epic Games will host Solo and Duo Cash Cup.
The format of Fortnite Platform Cash Cup remains the same as in Season X and Chapter 2, Season 1. Every week, pairs will have the chance to complete in three separate rounds. The point based qualification from the first round to the second one is in effect.
The latest competitive endeavor of Fortnite seems a little below the point of view of the prize. The reality of the current situation is what the players have is better than nothing. Basically, competitive players have survived bets, third party tournaments and tireless custom scrims. Cash Cups are far of going to harm the bank, but we saw the extraordinary talents emerging in the last season at these tournaments.
Khanada and UnknownArmy are named as the best players of the Solo Cash Cups. At the very last, each competitor has something to generate content along with the next Duo FNCS. We are able to see even more hidden talents with the next series of competitions.
