Fortnite and Samsung have teamed up once again for the Galaxy Cup 3 Android only tournament. Here is how you can compete… and win the skin!

Epic Games have announced the Galaxy Cup 3 with another free skin up for grabs.

Fortnite’s partnership with Samsung dates back to 2018 when players could acquire the first-ever Galaxy skin by purchasing the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Note 9. Since the first collaboration, Epic Games and Samsung have teamed up nearly every year for additional promotions.

In 2020, Fortnite introduced the Galaxy Cup concept – a tournament where players could earn the Galaxy Scout skin in exchange for a high placement.

Now in July 2022, those who possess an Android phone or tablet can compete in the Galaxy Cup 3 for a chance to win the latest Galaxy-themed skin and more. Here is everything you need to know about the latest Fortnite Galaxy Cup 3 tournament.
