There is more than one way to play Fortnite, and all of them are fun on their own. While more competitive players can focus on Arena mode and tournaments, Epic Games typically introduces Limited Time Game Modes (LTMs) featuring new mechanics with each major patch.
These game modes are not only a great way to let off steam, but they also come with various challenges that reward players with XP. Even if players don’t like a certain game mode, playing it multiple times will be enough to complete their quests.
Epic is introducing completely new game modes here and there, but there are a decent number of them and they spin in and out of the game every season. These game modes can be broken down into three categories: LTMs, Live Events, and Competitive Game Modes.
Players will have little time to play in the LTMs since they leave the game after a certain period. These game modes usually feature countdowns next to their names, so you’ll know when it’s time to say goodbye.
Competitive game modes can be thought of as limited-time cups and tournaments which usually reward the best players with cash. These game modes tend to have strict rules and you should read them carefully if you want to participate. Although the rule set looks similar at first glance, some may have small print, and failure to read them carefully may result in you being disqualified.
Live events are Fortnitethe jewel in the crown as they tend to bring out the best of Epic Games. Some live events will feature actual celebrities, while others will wow players with stunning cutscenes that highlight all the unknowns in a season’s storyline.
Here are all the game modes available in Fortnite until there. The list is likely to grow longer over time, but some of these existing game modes may make a comeback as well. The list includes base game modes such as Solos, Duos, Squads, Trios, Battle Lab, Party Royale, and Team Rumble, as well as more unique modes that only become available for limited periods.
