Fortnite's New Solo Shodown Mode Makes Things More Competitive

Fortnite's New Solo Shodown Mode Makes Things More Competitive

Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode.

This mode sounds as if it's truly for the best of the best. The remaining players in the top 100 will get 7,500 V-Bucks.

Fortnite publisher Epic Games says that player placements and performances 'will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event'. The cumulative scores from these 50 matches will be considered to keep any players from taking the shortcut. There's 50,000 V-Bucks in store for first place, 25,000 V-Bucks for those ranked second through fourth, 13,500 V-Bucks for fifth to 50th, and 7,500 V-Bucks for the rest. "Instead, you will be placed against other self-selected competitors making this the ultimate test of survival", said the developer on Epic's website. Get out there and prove your skills, get on the ladder, and earn some valuable V-Bucks.

When it comes to the scoring system, finishing first place within a match will award you 100 points while finishing 20th place within a match will award you 50 points. As with any good ranked mode, there will be a leaderboard players can check to see how they stack up against the competition, and once the game mode ends next week, Epic will hand out rewards to the top 100 players.

There are also allegations discussed in the film that Houston's father and accountant John Houston was stealing earnings from her. However, Brown later claimed that Houston was bisexual and once dated her best friend and assistant Robyn Crawford .

All the standard rules and match regulations of Solo mode apply here.

Only the first 50 Solo Showdown matches will count towards the score for each player, and at least 50 needs to be completed to be eligible for a prize.

At the conclusion of their post detailing the Solo Showdown Limited Time Mode, the developer teases that they "have a major announcement about competitive play next week".

Get ready to get sweaty as Fortnite gets a more competitive game type than ever before.
