The new Limited Time Modes for the 14 Days of Fortnite campaign are now live in Fortnite!

Close Encounters makes a return in the 50v50 format. The mode, which has been around since Season 4, only uses Shotguns and Jetpacks.

Wild West, as a squads mode, also returns. The previously-released limited time mode only uses ‘Frontier Time’ weapons such as the Six-Shooter, Hunting Rifle, Pump Shotgun and Dynamite. Shields are also out and can only be gained via Slurp Juices. 

The 14 Days of Fortnite is still ongoing and fans can expect plenty more new content in the forms of new skins, gliders and other cosmetic items alongside both new and old Limited Time Modes being released. 

Some of the newest releases, including the Merry Munchkin back bling, have already become extremely popular with fans – seemingly resulting in a successful campaign for Epic.

With it being Day 11 of 14, there are only a few days left for players to get in on the exciting and ever-changing holiday season campaign. While players may have missed a few days, there is still plenty of new content to come.

The Holiday Campaign has been a success for Epic Games

Already released Limited Time Modes have included the new Siphon solo mode, Slide Solo, Barebones and Team Terror Mode. All of the modes had been leaked before the start of the 14 Days of Fortnite but some alterations had been made since. Fans are also still waiting for the ‘One Shot’ mode to go live.

There are still plenty more exciting modes to come in the final few days so keep an out to Dexerto for all the updates of when the limited time modes go live!

Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli has roasted England international teammate Kieran Trippier over his gaming skills, bluntly calling him “really bad” at Fortnite.

Alli has recently become a global ambassador for Excel, one of the 10 League of Legends teams in the LEC and a powerhouse of UK esports, having made clear his love of gaming in recent years with his streams on Twitch.

Dele sat down to talk about his love of gaming with Excel, discussing FIFA, Fortnite, and some of the other top footballers he’s played with — but had a few less-than-savoury thoughts on his former Spurs teammate’s abilities.

After being asked who’s “not very good at gaming,” Trippier fell immediately into the firing line.

Dele joins a growing list of footballers getting involved in the esports scene in one way or another.

With a laugh at his friend’s misfortune, Dele revealed that the former Spurs man, unfortunately, falls into that category.

“Kieran Trippier was very late to gaming” Dele said, offering his former teammate somewhat of a lifeline. Before cracking up laughing again, the star added: “He jumped on it and he’s got a lot better but, at the start…”

Dele continued: “He joined Fortnite when we had all been playing for a while, and it was the first time he had played with a controller… so if you tell him to press X, he wouldn’t know which was X.”

Not content with letting his name be slandered in the gaming world, Kieran himself quickly responded with some laughing emojis, backing himself up by clarifying that he actually “wasn’t that bad,” though it doesn’t sound great for the full back.

Now, surely, fans will be desperate to see Dele and Kieran go head-to-head with one another to see if the latter is really as bad as he sounds.
