Blitz Showdown is Fortnite’s newest limited time mode and allows players to win prizes for scoring high.
Similar to the first Fortnite Solo Showdown, players are asked to play 25 matches where your placement and number of kills determine your score. The top 100 players, this time separated by region, will earn V-Bucks.
So what’s different this time? For starters, each region will have its own top 100 players and set of prizes. The two North American servers count as one. This mode is also based on Blitz, a different limited time mode that speeds up storm times and forces you to play at a quicker pace.
First place in each region will win 20,000 V-Bucks, while second through fifth place earn 13,500 and sixth and lower earn 7,500. This time around you’re tasked with completing 25 matches, not 50, and each elimination is worth an additional 3 points. For a full breakdown, check out the official rules.
Blizts Showdown went live today and will run through the weekend, ending on Monday, June 4 at 10 am ET/7 am PT.
Epic also revealed a few cool notes about the last showdown mode. The average eliminations per game for the top 100 players was 4.96 and the European region had the most players in the top 1000. Players who teamed up were banned from the mode and cheaters were permanently removed from Fortnite.
