Finally — Fortnite Arena rewards are here. Competitive Fortnite fans have long requested the addition of rewards to Arena Mode, and at long last, Epic Games has come through. Let's dive into the Fortnite Arena rewards and how to earn them.

What Is Fortnite Arena?

Arena is Fortnite's competitive mode. Arena features three playlists: Solos, Duos, and Trios. In Arena, you receive rank points called "Hype" based on eliminations and placement. As you gain Hype, you will move up in rank through Divisions and Leagues. Select Fortnite tournaments and Cash Cups require that you reach a certain rank in Arena before you can participate.

Arena enacts a special ruleset separate from other Fortnite game modes. Mechanics like Siphon, Storm Surge, and Bus Fares are all prevalent in Arena. Also, Arena and non-competitive modes use different Loot Pools.

Up until now, reaching high ranks in Arena Mode bore no true rewards. Starting in Chapter 3 Season 2, players that reach at least Contender League: Division I will receive an exclusive Wrap at the end of the season based on their final League and Division standing.

This cosmetic Wrap is usable on weapons and vehicles and will represent your efforts in that specific season of Arena.

As we touched on earlier, Arena players are split up into Divisions and Leagues. The Arena rankings are as follows:

  • Open League: Division I (0 - 399 Hype Points)
  • Open League: Division II (400 - 799 Hype Points)
  • Open League: Division III (800 - 1,199 Hype Points)
  • Open League: Division IV (1,200 - 1,999 Hype Points)

  • Contender League: Division I (2,000 - 2,999 Hype Points)
  • Contender League: Division II (3,000 - 4,999 Hype Points)
  • Contender League: Division III (5,000 - 7,499 Hype Points)

  • Champion League: Division I (7,500 - 9,999 Hype Points)
  • Champion League: Division II (10,000 - 14,999 Hype Points)
  • Champion League: Division III (15,000+ Hype Points)

To earn Fortnite Arena rewards, you must reach at least Division 1 of the Contender League before the current Fortnite season ends. So, you'll need to rally up at least 2,000 Hype Points total.

Hype Points are rewarded differently based on your current Arena rank and which Arena playlist you are participating in. With an Arena playlist selected, click Division Details on the left side of your screen and go to Scoring to see the full Arena scoring breakdown for that particular playlist, Division, and League.

No longer will your work in the Arena go unrewarded. Jump into Fortnite's premiere competitive playlist and climb the ranks to earn exclusive rewards.

If you want to succeed in Arena, you'll need to master these Fortnite building techniques.
