Leaked Fortnite LTM puts fresh twist on classic Call of Duty mode

A new twist on the popular Call of Duty-inspired Gun Game mode looks set to hit Fortnite in the near future.

Epic Games loves to put a Fortnite-style twist on things we’ve seen in other games in the past. Be it things like their Team Rumble limited time mode, adding iconic weapons from other multiplayer titles or even seemingly taking inspiration for their in-game skins.

Yet, it seems like they aren’t finished yet and could be retreading a well-walked path that has been made popular in a number of previous Call of Duty titles.

Epic GamesFortnite players are always looking to play Epic Games’ new LTMs.

What is Fortnite’s Reverse Gun Game LTM?

According to a new leak from Fortnite dataminer FortTory, a new Reverse Gun Game LTM looks to be ready to launch in-game – with the dataminer tweeting an image of what it would look like in the game’s main menu.

The apparent description for the mode reads: All players start with the same powerful weapon. Eliminating a player grants a weapon of slightly less power. The first to make it through every weapon, from best to worst, earns the Victory Royale!”

With multiple kills being required to work your way up the ranks, it appears as if the LTM would be a respawn mode of some sort – marking a shift for Fortnite’s usual ‘you’re eliminated so move on to the next game’ format.

What weapons are in the Reverse Gun Game LTM?

While the idea seems nailed down from Epic, little is known about the potential order of weapons that a player would start with or if the mode will cater to just solo’s, as FortTory’s image shows, of potentially squads and duos.

It’s not hard to figure that players might start with the rare Heavy Sniper Rifle before working their way down to an Epic Assault Rifle and so on – dwindling all the way down to that dreaded common Pistol.

Who knows, in a cruel twist of fate, you may even have to get your final kill using your chosen pickaxe. It just remains to be seen what order Epic sets for the LTM.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
