Epic Games release new mode with BIG V-Bucks rewards

  • Fortnite is a survival-type of video game the Iowa football incoming class bonds over

But there's a catch to the scoring: you need to play at least 50 games in Solo Showdown, and only the first 50 will count towards your score to dissuade high-volume players from taking all the glory. It's not yet clear how the mode will work in terms of cross-platform play (whether iOS players are measured directly against console or PC players, or they get their own rankings).

Fortnite publisher Epic Games says that player placements and performances 'will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event'.

The folder only contains a solo variant, which either means this is what the mode is going to be, or that Epic Games will simply roll out competitive solo first before it expands it to duos and squads.


The new Solo Showdown Limited-Time Mode that went live today trades the usual rules tweaks (like letting you play as Thanos) for a meta-game competition to see who can play the best across 50 rounds. Upon the conclusion of each match, you'll earn a number of points based upon your final positioning. 100 players will still parachute onto an island, start collecting weapons and supplies, blueprints, and then kill whoever they come across until only one remains.

For those unaware, Jetpacks were initially set for inclusion in Fortnite during Season 3 of the title, but the item received an indefinite delay from Epic Games due to the developer having discovered an undisclosed flaw in its design. 2nd through 4th will get 25,000 V-Bucks. There's 50,000 V-Bucks in store for first place, 25,000 V-Bucks for those ranked second through fourth, 13,500 V-Bucks for fifth to 50th, and 7,500 V-Bucks for the rest. Everyone who completes 50 matches, however, will get a unique spray. The mode will end on Monday, May 21st at 10:00 a.m.

It's essentially a scored mode for the best Battle Royale players, who will be able to earn a lot of V-Bucks for their trouble.
