Today Epic games came out with a brand new, really good update for Fortnite Battle Royale on PC, Xbox, and Playstation. Unfortunately, Fortnite Battlre Royale Steam edition is not a thing, but that’s not important. However, what is important is the fact that this update brought in a new LTM(Limited Time Mode), this new LTM is called ‘Getaway’. The cool thing about this game mode is that you have to work as a team and get away with a jewel. The way to win this game mode is very simple ,yet very hard, for me at least. You win in this game mode with these very simple steps: search a safe which is scattered randomly throughout the map, pick up the jewel, then lastly; get to a van safely. This is how you achieve Victory Royale in this new LTM!
There are also three new challenges for the new LTM, which if you do all of them, you’ll get a reward! The first challenge is simply to play 10 LTM matches. The second challenge makes you have to deal 50 damage to a person holding a jewel. The third and final challenge has you pick up the jewel five times. There are also individual rewards for doing these. Doing the first one you will get 5,000 XP. Completing the second one will get you a spray paint. Completing the third challenge will get you a contrail. If you complete all of these; you will get a crowbar pickaxe. These challenges are all free; no BattlePass required! There is also a brand new skin in the Item Shop to go along with the new LTM, but I’m not gonna use my money on skins like that, however, that’s me and everyone is different! Obviously streamers and Youtubers are gonna buy the skin, but that’s because they have the money to buy it! Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a Fortnite Free Skin other than the ones you can get from the Twitch Prime packs.
After playing some rounds of this new LTM, some tips I can give are: first, assemble a team you are comfortable playing with; second, do not land directly next to the safe, land somewhere nearby and make your way towards it. This is so you can have good loot and have a better chance of getting the jewel. The final tip I can share is: if you are really close to the van and you encounter a team, have the person with the jewel get to the van while the other team members distract the attacking team. This way you can have a higher chance of winning.
With the new update, there is a new gun. This new gun can be very good in some cases and bad in other cases. Overall this gun is very cool. It is the new Grappler Gun. You can use this gun to travel ,get away quick, or even escape death. It is more helpful than you might think. You can do trick shots or do some stuff you didn’t even know you could do with such a tool. Some might even say that it’s the best gun in Fortnite right now!
Lastly, the Revolver Gun got vaulted in this newest update. This was hard to take in, the Revolver could be such a good weapon at times. It was really underrated, but at least we still have the Hand Cannon!
