This competition is open to all eight competitive Fortnite regions: Europe, NA East, NA West, NA Central, Brazil, Middle East, Asia, and Oceania.

How to unlock the High Society Ranker Glider

The High Society Ranker Glider is the only prize for those competing in the Ranked Cups. Those who unlock the Glider will represent their current rank when using it. For example, players who compete in the Gold Ranked Cups will acquire a Gold High Society Ranker if they earn enough points in the tournament.

Competitors must earn at least 75 points in any of the Ranked Cups listed above to acquire the Glider. For reference, each elimination is worth two points, and a Victory Royale is worth between 64 and 67 points, depending on the game mode. With unlimited games across four hours, it should be reasonably easy to earn 75 points.

Whether you play Zero Build or Battle Royale, it's always wise to play conservatively. This approach allows you to rack up placement points. Continue using this strategy consistently; you will have the High Society Ranker Glider before you know it.
