Fortnite's New Solo Shodown Mode Makes Things More Competitive

In order to qualify, you'll need to play 50 Solo Showdown matches.

Check out our list of the best battle royale games on PC. Once the limited time mode ends, the top 100 players will receive a prize.

The Solo Showdown mode started this morning and runs until 10 AM EST on Monday.

According to the Solo Showdown rules, the first 50 Battle Royale matches you play will be counted toward your score, and you must play at least 50 matches to be eligible for one of the prizes.

Running for a limited time, Solo Showdown is pretty much the same as the regular Solo Battle Royale version, except the players have their victories recorded and ranked, Forbes reports. 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. First place will earn themselves a cool 50,000 V-Bucks.

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.

They also added, "We'll be using the Solo Showdown as a one-off stepping stone to learn how to build great events for all types of players".

Here's more from Epic Games, who confirm: "Unlike other LTMs, Solo Showdown will not change core gameplay of the current Solo mode". 5th through 50th earn 13,500 V-Bucks and 51st through 100th will receive 7,500. At the end of each game, players will receive a score: the victor gets 100 points, and it gradually decreases from there on: finishing 20th gets you 50 points, and the last 25 players (76-100) get 25 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. If you're interested in participating, you can read the full rules over on Fortnite's official website.
