Fortnite Blitz Mode V2 is now available as a new limited time mode. The Blitz V2 game type was added with the Fortnite 4.3 patch. As we’ve seen with other “V2” limited game type variants, this new edition comes with some tweaks and additions to try and make the mode more fun for players. If you want to give the Fortnite Blitz Mode V2 a go, be sure to jump in as soon as possible, as these limited time modes don’t hang around for long. Here’s what you need to know about Fortnite Blitz Mode V2.

Fortnite Blitz Mode V2: What’s New?

Fortnite Blitz Mode V2 is still fun and frantic, forcing players to rush to collect loot and fight. The storms close in faster and there’s a lot more rare loot on offer. This is a fantastic mode for getting into the action quickly, and there’s very little downtime between battles.

New changes introduced into Fortnite Blitz Mode V2 include all of the new weapons and items that have come out since the original mode was featured. These include the Port-a-Fort, Clinger, LMG, and more. What’s more, the bus flight height has been lowered, meaning players have less distance to fall. This will make for less time falling and more time fighting!
