Fortnite Adds Rift-To-Go and Limited Score Mode in Latest Update

Posted by August 24, 2018 Comment

The latest update to Fortnite has been added to the server, and along with some interesting items, we get a few new modes. The two big items are the Rift-To-Go being thrown into Battle Royale and the Bundlebuss Assault Rifle coming to Save The World, but the big one that caught people’s eyes was the Limited Time Mode in BR where the person with the highest score in a short amount of time wins the match.

You can read the full 5.3 update here, but we have the primary stuff you should know from Fortnite’s BR mode below.

LIMITED TIME MODE: SCORE ROYALE

Summary
Earn points by collecting coins, opening loot containers and eliminating other players. The first to cross the High Score threshold wins the Victory Royale!

Mode Details

  • More Llamas!
    • 30 total Supply Llamas per match.
    • Llamas have reduced building materials due to the amount in each game.
      • 20 of each material type.
      • All other loot is unchanged.
    • Opening a Supply Llama grants 50 points.
  • Early game Storm circles are larger and the Storms move in more slowly, giving players more time to spread out and search for loot.
