Prizing – How to get a free PS5 or Indigo Kuno skin

In order to win a PS5 or the Indigo Kuno skin, you must place high enough on the individual leaderboard for your respective region. Standings can be viewed by going to the in-game Generations Cup tournament page as the action unfolds. Third-party sites like Fortnite Tracker may also be able to help, but they might be a bit slower tabulating the live results.

Here’s how the Generations Cup prizing situation works across all regions.

  • NA East: First – PS5 / First-1,500th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • NA West: First – PS5 / First-600th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • Europe: First – PS5 / First-2,400th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • Brazil: First – PS5 / First-600th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • Oceania: First – PS5 / First-300th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • Asia: First – PS5 / First-300th – Indigo Kuno skin
  • Middle East: First – PS5 / First-300th: Indigo Kuno skin

In other words, only the best player in each region gets a free PS5. That being said, at least Epic is being pretty generous with the free skin reward. That’s all you need to know about the Fortnite Generations Cup happening on December 18.
