A new Fortnite LTM ‘Search and Destroy’ has been found in the game files. Take a look at the leaked skins, challenges, and more.

Fortnite v11.40 might be the most substantial update since Chapter 2 released. The Heavy AR is back and we can now change weapons at an Upgrade Bench. We also have something to look forward to in the new leaked LTM.

Data miners found the ‘Search and Destroy’ LTM in the game files. The leaked challenges associated with the LTM points us toward Creative Mode, similar to Downtown Drop and Zone Wars.

The name and description of these challenges make it appear as though the ‘Search and Destroy’ mode will be just that: Search and Destroy. This is very similar to Fortnite’s Gun Game adaptation, Arsenal.

You’ve all likely played Search and Destroy in other games. One team spawns with a bomb while the other team tries to defend the objective. Traditionally, each player on both teams has one life per round.

We’ll be getting a couple of skins for the new mode as well – also similar to Downtown Drop and Zone Wars. These will be called Metal Mouth and Zadie, according to the leaks.

These skins will also have a few different unlockable styles. You can unlock all of the variants by playing Search and Destroy. Again, all of this will look very familiar to those who purchased the Downtown Drop and Zone Wars skins.

It’s unclear whether or not these skins will come as a package or if Epic will sell them separately. They included a bundle price for the Downtown Drop skins, at least. I don’t know whether or not the Zone Wars skins were sold as a unit. Let us know down in the comments if you bought them.

That’s all we know about the Search and Destroy game mode as of now. We can expect it to go live as early as 1/16, although we may have to wait another week.
