An impressive amount of Limited Time Modes have been added to the Fortnite files following the v9.30 update.

Fortnite v9.30 featured an above average amount of content compared to typical updates as it is being used as preparation for three upcoming Content Updates before v9.40’s release. Including are many LTMs which are expected to be present during the upcoming 14 Days of Fortnite event.

Below you can find a list of all twenty datamined Limited Time Mode names and descriptions…

Automatics

The only weapons in the game are the automatic firing ones. Spray and pray!

Builder’s Paradise

All player-built structures have drastically increased health, but a true builder doesn’t break down walls, they edit through them! Neutral editing has been turned on to allow players to edit structures no matter which team placed them. And what kind of paradise would keep a builder short on supplies? Building material drop rates are increased to allow as much building as desired!

Chameleon

Last man standing rules, but players have the ability to turn into different props around the map

Headshots Only

Players can only deal damage with headshots, so take your time and line up your shots!

Heavy Metal

In this mode, only the Heavy weapon variants can be found in loot boxes. Get your loadout and get in the fight!

Leave None Behind

All players have a slurp effect granting health and shields over time as long as their teammate is alive & not downed. If a player is knocked down they become invulnerable to damage, but the heal over time effect that their teammate has will change to damage over time. Revive your partner as fast as possible!

Loadout Swap

All players gets a new loadout that continues to change through the course of a match. Compete to be the last one standing, and prove you are the best with a variety of weapons!

Power Up

This mode is played in two phases. During the first phase, respawn on elimination is ON and using shield items increases your max shield capacity. After a period of time, respawning will switch to OFF. At this point, everyone’s shields will automatically be fully recharged. The remaining players will then fight to the finish! Note: Supply drops have TONS of shield pickups.

Purple Reign

All weapon drops are Epic. Storm circles move a bit more quickly. Building material farming rates are increased.

Rumble

Fight back to back with a friend for the Victory Royale in an action-packed mode where the first player to get the target number of eliminations wins!

Splashdown

Storm Chasers: Surfin’

Surf’s Up! Jump out of the Battle Bus and on to your shiny new surfboard. Use impulse grenades to bounce enemy players into the storm. Race against the storm and the other surfers to be the last one standing!

Strategic Structures

Think before you place is the name of the game. Stone and metal wall health has been increased but the resource caps and resource farming rates have been reduced.

Tag!

Not Team It: Avoid the red team at all costs #NotTeamIt Team It: try to pickaxe the blue team to convert them to the red team. #TeamIt

Tank Battle

Player health and shields drastically increased. Healing items removed and replaced with siphon (health granted on elimination). Let the best tank win!

Team Rumble: Lava

Two large teams fight for the Victory Royale in an action-packed mode where the first team to get the target number of eliminations wins! Dangerous lava rises gradually from the lowest parts of the map. Quickly loot, gather materials, and then start building up to stay away from the lava!

Team Splashdown

Using only water balloons and their wits two large teams fight for the Victory Royale in an action-packed mode where the first team to get the target number of eliminations wins!

The Blues

All weapon drops are Rare. Storm circles move a bit more quickly. Building material farming rates are increased.

Use With Care

Players are granted building materials at the start of the match without the ability to gain more throughout the match. Make what you are given at the start last because that’s all you get!

Fortnite Galactus event: Nexus War start date and time

Published

Nexus War event in Fortnite

The exact date and time for the Nexus War finale in Fortnite has been confirmed, and there is little time to prepare for the Galactus event.

The event, which will bring Chapter 2, Season 4 to a climax, as Galactus – aka the Devourer of Worlds – is bombing towards the map to, presumably, destroy it all.

The countdown to the event appeared in-game on November 21, and Epic have now confirmed the exact date and time when the Nexus War will commence.

“It was only a matter of time.” Epic say in their blog post. “Galactus is closing in on the Island and the fate of all Reality lies in the balance. Join the ultimate fight against Galactus in the one-time-only Nexus War finale event.”

When is the Galactus event in Fortnite?

The Nexus War finale event will start on December 1 at 1PM PT / 4PM ET / 9PM GMT.

To make sure you don’t miss out, Epic has given some tips to be prepared for the event:

  • DOWNLOAD THE LATEST UPDATE
    If you haven’t already downloaded the 14.60 update, load the game on your preferred device and download today.
  • DOWNLOAD HOUSEPARTY
    Fortnite’s new integration with Houseparty means you can have live video chat in Fortnite (PC, PS4/PS5) while attending the event.
  • GET IN EARLY
    We’ve taken measures to ensure more people can attend the event, but we still recommend everyone log into Fortnite at least 60 minutes prior to the event start. The event playlist is expected to go live 30 minutes prior to the start time.

Of course, even if you can’t play the game yourself at the time, you’ll still be able to catch the action on Twitch and YouTube streams from content creators.

As Epic confirms, this is a one-time-only event, so there won’t be any reruns unlike previous end of season events.
