Fortnite's New Solo Shodown Mode Makes Things More Competitive

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.

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.

And a note for people who suck at Fortnite like me: everybody who finishes their 50 qualifying matches will get an exclusive in-game spray regardless of performance.

There are some pretty substantial prizes to those that can place themselves in the top 100. The big reward of the game mode is V-Bucks-the game's currency for cosmetic items.

Place between 50 and 5 and you'll get 13,500 V-bucks, while fourth, third and second place get 25,000 and the victor gets a whopping 50,000.

So, if you think you're a good Fortnite player, this is your chance to prove it and possibly earn some in-game cash for your effort.

When the new limited time mode ends on Monday, the top 100 players with the highest score in Solo Showdown will receive a V-Buck prize from developer Epic Games.

All the standard rules and match regulations of Solo mode apply here. Don't get too excited, though: remember, this is a ranking of everyone that plays at least 50 matches in the mode.

The new mode is going on from now until May 21st at 10 AM ET. Eastern, 7:00 a.m. Pacific.

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

As seen in the tweet below from the Twitter account known as Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks, a recent datamine of the game's Update 4.2 files seems to have made a reference in the patch's code to a Limited Time Mode known as Close Encounters, which will feature "close-quarters combat with Shotguns and Jetpacks".
