Limited Time Modes

4 new Fortnite LTMs leaked: Tank Battles, Payback & more

Fortnite data miners find Tank Battles, Polaris, Payback, and Rags to Riches LTMs in the v13.30 game files.



One of the primary complaints from Fortnite players throughout Chapter 2 Seasons 1 and 2 was the lack of an LTM rotations. We saw frequent LTM changes in Chapter 1, and that was abandoned for the first two seasons of Fortnite’s second chapter. In fact, a return to LTMs was at the top of the list for many players going into Season 3.

We saw how popular LTMs could be when Epic brought them back for the Summer Smash event. Unvaulted was one of the most beloved Fortnite game modes in recent memory. It was a reminder of all of the fun, goofy weapons and items that used to be in Fortnite. Fans are still waiting for revolutionary LTMs like The Floor is Lava and Air Royale, but those may end up being exclusive to Chapter 1.

With the release of v13.30, however, Fortnite data miners found new LTM strings in the game files. Hypex tweeted four new LTMs that should be coming to Fortnite in the near future. These include Tank Battle, Payback, Polaris, and Rags to Riches. Within each file was a brief description, giving us an idea of what these modes will include.

  • Rags to Riches: All Loot is Gray, Eliminations Randomly Upgrade a Weapon!
  • Tank Battle: Hits Steal Shields from Other Players.
  • Payback: Fight to the top with your team. Get payback On marked players. Payback Counts as two eliminations.
  • Polaris: Loot pulled from open water is grey & High tier loot pulled from fishing spots.

Out of the four of these, Payback seems to be the most intriguing. The rest of these will be dependent upon team size, but they look to be incredibly fun as well.

Epic have seen the positive feedback when it comes to their LTM rotation, and are clearly dedicated to expanding their offerings. The more game modes, the better – in our opinion. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about when these LTMs will come to the game.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at how to complete all of them in this challenge guide.



Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
