Everything you need to know about the Fortnite Deathstroke Cup
Including how to unlock the Deathstroke skin early.
Fortnite’s onslaught of DC crossovers continues, with the Deathstroke Zero Cup taking place May 27, 2021. Much like the Marvel-themed cups that happened in late 2020, this one offers early access to a popular licensed skin bundle before it makes its official Item Shop debut. And this one’s all about the deadly assassin Deathstroke from DC Comics.
Below, we outline the start times, rules, and other details worth knowing to unlock Deathstroke early.
When are the Fortnite Deathstroke Zero Cup start and end times?
Much like the previous batch of skin-themed tournaments, this one is set to take place May 27 between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time across the United States. For those who need it, here’s the full list of start times across other regions as listed in Eastern Time.
- NA East: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern
- NA West: 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. Eastern
- Europe: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern
- Oceania: 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Eastern
- Brazil: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern
- Asia: 4 a.m. to 7 a.m. Eastern
- Middle East: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern
It’s worth noting that it is possible to compete in other regions if those start times work better for you, but you’ll also be dealing with increased lag depending on how far away the servers are from your physical location. Players can also only compete in one region per tournament, so, be smart about the decision you make.
