Content Update v4.4 has been datamined to reveal some upcoming playlists/LTMs for Fortnite Battle Royale named ‘Tactics Showdown’ and ‘Ground Game’. Though these modes don’t yet have associated images, their descriptions have been found within the files.

Tactics Showdown

“This mode encourages tactical combat and building by putting a cap on the amount of resources and ammunition players can carry. Player-built structures also start off with less health than normal, and when players are eliminated they will drop fewer resources than normal”

Ground Game

“In Ground Game, the focus is on fighting smart – Spray & Pray and Build Spamming isn’t an option here. Fewer building materials can be carried and max ammo count is limited, so use the natural cover that the map provides and make every shot count!”


Both playlists feature the following text for the loading screen, it is unclear whether they are the same or simply being used as placeholders:

Focus on the Fight.

Winning in Tactics Showdown requires careful aim and thoughtful use of building materials

Build Smart.

Try using natural cover in order to conserve resources!

Don’t Spray & Spray.

The cap on how much ammo can be carried is lower in this mode – make every shot count!

Note: These modes aren’t necessarily confirmed, their presence within the game files suggests that they might release soon.
