This mode sounds as if it's truly for the best of the best. FI also added, "The lack of "Playlist_Comp_Duos" and "Playlist_Comp_Squads" files suggests that it'd only be available for Solo play, though this may be done as a way to test things out before rolling it out to Duos and Squads at a later date". "To thank you for participating, play 50 games and get a unique spray".

Placements in this limited time mode will be specially tracked and determine rewards you receive at the end of the event. Upon the conclusion of each match, you'll earn a number of points based upon your final positioning. If you're placed 51 through 100, you'll get 7,500, which will normally set you back $60.

There are some pretty substantial prizes to those that can place themselves in the top 100. 2nd through 4th will get 25,000 V-Bucks. The best player will take away 50,000 V-Bucks, the game's currency for cosmetic items, and other top-100 finishers will claim virtual prizes too.

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.


If you're a frequent window shopper of the Fortnite in-game store, you'll know that those V-Bucks will go a long way in customizing characters with skins, emotes, back blings and more.

All the standard rules and match regulations of Solo mode apply here.

In order to qualify, you'll need to play 50 Solo Showdown matches. The contest starts today and ends on May 21, 2018, at 10:00 AM ET.

Fortnite Battle Royale's Solo Showdown is a Limited Time Mode, and is being used as a "one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players".
