Fortnite Solo Showdown: What Is The New Limited Time Mode?

The Fortnite Solo Showdown limited time event has been revealed, giving skilled players an arena to show off their shooting and building prowess against other capable users. Not only does the Fortnite Solo Showdown use a leaderboard system and grant epic bragging rights, it also allows the best of the best to earn V-Bucks. That's right, the players who top the leaderboards by the end of the event will get a share of a big prize pot. Here are all the details you need to know about the Fortnite Solo Showdown limited time event.

Fortnite Solo Showdown: What Is the New Limited Time Mode?

Unlike other limited time modes, the Fortnite Solo Showdown LTM will not change any of the core gameplay, keeping everything the same. There will be no limitations on weapons, no boosted drop rates, or any other unusual modifiers. Instead, Fortnite Solo Showdown will keep track of a player's performance during 50 rounds. At the end of those 50 matches, a score will be given. Once the limited time mode ends, the top 100 players will receive a prize.

Fortnite Solo Showdown: What Are the Prizes?

The Fortnite Solo Showdown is the first instance where Battle Royale players who perform well can earn V-Bucks. The player who manages to secure first place will get 50,000 V-Bucks. Second to fourth places will earn 25,000 V-Bucks each. Up to and including 50th will receive 13,500 V-Bucks. The remaining 50 will get 7,500 V-Bucks.

  • 1st Place:  50,000 V-Bucks
  • 2nd - 4th  Place:  25,000 V-Bucks
  • 5th – 50th Place:  13,500 V-Bucks
  • 51st – 100th Place:  7,500 V-Bucks

If you're a frequent window shopper of the Fortnite in-game store, you'll know that those V-Bucks will go a long way in customizing characters with skins, emotes, back blings and more. That absurd number of V-Bucks can also help pay for upcoming Battle Passes, which will likely come with future seasons.
