Chapter 4 Season OG Ranked

Welcome to Chapter 4 Season OG Ranked! With each new season, ranks are reset to provide a fresh start for all players. Whether you prefer Battle Royale or Zero Build, you'll need just one Ranked match to reveal your rank. Your performance in this match does not determine your initial rank placement; it simply reveals your rank and updates your progress bar based on your performance.

Ranked Matchmaking Test

If you find yourself in the higher ranks, matchmaking might take a little longer. To address this, we are testing lobbies with 80+ players to begin a match if matchmaking takes too long. This test aims to ensure fairer matches for higher-ranked players.

Faster Rank Progression in Fortnite OG

In light of Fortnite OG's shorter duration, rank progression has been adjusted. Players are penalized less for early eliminations, and progression is slightly faster, especially in the Bronze ranks. This change ensures more consistent progression for friends queuing up together across ranks.

Reminiscent Ranked Reward

Jump off the Battle Bus in a Ranked match and receive a Ranked Urgent Quest. Complete these quests to unlock in-game rewards. Completing just one Ranked Urgent Quest during Fortnite OG will earn you the Chapter 1-inspired Ranker's Tags Back Bling, displaying the color of the highest rank you've reached this season. Show off your achievements in style!

Classically Competitive

Earn the Competitor’s Skyblades and Competitor’s Time Brella, two exciting glider rewards from Ranked Cups. While many features from Fortnite OG are available in tournaments, some items will not be included, such as the Grenade Launcher, Rocket Launcher, Quad Launcher, and more.
