Fortnite Solo Showdown: What Is The New Limited Time Mode?

Solo Showdown simply acts as a sort of competitive mode in Fortnite Battle Royale.

This mode sounds as if it's truly for the best of the best.

Fortnite has introduced a new limited time mode called "Solo Showdown", which adds a new competitive play experience to the battle royale side - and the developers are also teasing "a major announcement about competitive play" for next week. You'll need to play 50 Solo Showdown games to be eligible for a prize, and in an effort to make sure people can't game the system by queuing into matches they repeatedly lose immediately, only those 50 games will be counted.

According to The Wrap, Arnold claims in his suit that Cardi and Offset "ordered the beatdown after verbally threatening him". Migos rapper Offset was last night in Atlanta after getting into a pretty bad vehicle accident.

Placements in this limited time mode will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event. Not bad! But it's not exactly free money, because you will have to put in some decent hours to complete 50 matches in under five days. Finishing first in a match will earn you a full 100 point, which drops all the way down to just 25 points for places 76 to 100. All of which consist of Fortnite's V-Bucks currency, though. Cumulative scores will then be generated from across the player's' 50 matches. Those who come in second through fourth will receive 25,000 V-Bucks, while the players who place fifth through fiftieth will get 13,500 V-Bucks. First place will earn themselves a cool 50,000 V-Bucks. The remaining 50 will get 7,500 V-Bucks. The mode will end on Monday, May 21st at 10:00 a.m.

Even if you're not lucky enough to rank in the top 100 players of Fortnite's Solo Showdown mode, by simply playing 50 games, you'll get a unique spray, so there's always that. Epic Games hasn't confirmed anything about this so far which means that we'll have to wait in order to find out whether or not Fortnite is actually getting a competitive mode.
