New Fortnite Mode, Solo Showdown, Available Now For A Limited Time

There's no skill-based matchmaking here, and you might find yourself battling with top Fortnite streamers like Ninja, Myth, and DrLupo, who'll surely seek bragging rights in the mode. Now, it looks like this season of the free-to-play Battle Royale portion of Epic Games' hybrid construction shooter could finally be including the long-awaited Jetpack item that was set to be added to the game not too long ago.

The players who have competed in 50 matches will unlock a unique spray.

In addition to the ongoing 50v50 event, Epic has kicked off a new limited-time mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The top players will win prizes-the idea is that people will take it more seriously than the regular solo queue. The cumulative scores from these 50 matches will be considered to keep any players from taking the shortcut.

2nd to 4th place will win 25,000 V-Bucks, players from 5th to 50th place will win 13,500 V-Bucks and 51st to 100th place can claim 7,500 V-Bucks.

I think sometimes we go through things because we're like, 'OK, this is what we need to do. The conflict over children has raised issues in her head about the relationship.

If you don't do all your accounting in V-Bucks these days, the grand prize is roughly $500 in in-game currency.

Epic Games will be tracking the first 50 Showdown LTM matches for each individual and the collective performances here will determine the placement for each player. Second to fourth places will earn 25,000 V-Bucks each. The remaining 50 will get 7,500 V-Bucks. There doesn't seem to be an in-game Solo Showdown leaderboard, though Epic will update the standings on its blog post.

The goal of the adding the game mode is to provide a "stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players". While this doesn't necessarily change any of the core gameplay mechanics that fans of the original Solo mode are used to, it does have a pretty major difference, so let's run you through what you need to know about it.
