The top three players as per the points table in each region will get the OnePlus 8T while the top point earner will get the OnePlus Buds. You can check all the details about the event in the official blog post regarding the Bhangra Boogie Cup.
The Mandalorian, Kratos from God of War, and Master Chief from Halo in the game
Moving back to the hunters, the inclusion of The Mandalorian works well with the quest structure in Fortnite. Players need to complete multiple tasks to unlock more Mandalorian gear including the shiny armor. There are nine pieces of armor available to unlock with the final one only available at level 100. Similarly, players also need to do the same to unlock Grogu, aka Baby Yoda. For some context, they need to max out the Battle Pass this season to get Grogu.

Beyond this, Epic Games also announced that Kratos from God of War is coming to the game. The company shared the details about the arrival of this character in a separate blog post. This is likely part of the $250 million minority stake that Sony took in Epic Games earlier in the year. Just hours later, another tweet surfaced hinting at the arrival of Master Chief from the Halo franchise to the game. The screenshots also showcased a tiny Warthog and Pelican.
