With Fortnite patch v9.30, dataminers were able to uncover a whole lot about the future of the game, including the ‘The Blues’ limited-time mode, and new in-game loading screens show that it could be here soon.

Outside of the traditional battle royale game modes in Fortnite, Epic Games features a variety of other modes for the more casual players, and to show off many of the ways their game can stand apart from the competition.

One of these new LTMs, or limited-time modes, is called The Blues, and while it hasn’t officially been announced, it sounds like we have a lot of evidence pointing to its existence. 

The Blues LTM will only feature blue rarity items.

Dataminers have discovered the mode in the files with the v9.30 update, including skins and various cosmetics, and now players are seeing a load screen for the mode in the Solid Gold LTM.

From the sounds of things, The Blues LTM will work very similar to how the Solid Gold one currently does, but just with different items. The storm will move a bit quicker and farming rates will be increased to make for some speedier matches.

What is The Blues?

The Blues LTM will take every item in the match and make it the Blue rarity so you won’t be seeing things like the Scar or Boom Bow make appearances here.

However, the Combat Shotgun and Drum Gun will both be here so it’s not like the endgame meta will feel all that different.

No release date has been given for this LTM and with Epic Games employees currently on a vacation, it could be a little while before it’s introduced, unless it’s scheduled to go live over the break.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

The Fortilla is an expansive set of islands, covered in henchmen and beach decor.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
