Epic announced the Solo Showdown Limited Time Mode is back and there's even more prizes to be won this time around.
Unlike other limited time modes, the Solo Showdown LTM does not change the rules of the game. Instead, players will compete against other qualifying competitors to try and obtain the most points at the end of the LTM through high placements, wins, and kills. The players with the most points will win V-Bucks according to what place they finish.
Only the top 100 players in each region will win an award. The prizes are as follows:
- 1st Place: 50,000 V-Bucks
- 2nd – 4th Place: 25,000 V-Bucks
- 5th-50th Place: 13,500 V-Bucks
- 51st-100th Place: 7,500 V-Bucks
Fortnite players will need to play at least 25 matches to be eligible for their total score to be counted towards prize placement. Contestants must also be 16 years or older to compete, presumably because prizes are offered for victory.
As a new bonus, there's a chance that top performers in Solo Showdown will receive invitations to future Summer Skirmish events for even more prizes. You can read up on Fortnite's $100 million new esports initiative here. Also, check out our Fortnite guide for tips and tricks.
