Epic Games have detailed some minor changes to the newly released Floor is Lava LTM in Fortnite.

With Fortnite update v8.20 came arguably the most controversial patch to date. Various Fortnite players, pros and casual players alike, have lamented the change and nearly every tweet is met with calls to revert the update.

While players are upset about the changes made to the regular mode and the long queue times of the Ranked Mode, one thing players haven’t talked about a whole lot is the Floor is Lava LTM.

The Floor is Lava LTM requires players to avoid the rising lava threat as it slowly, but surely, rises and covers the whole map. 

Matches will start with little going on in terms of danger but will quickly become overwhelming at players frantically fight to gain the high ground over their enemies and avoid the lava.

After only being available for a few days, Epic Games decided to give it some tweaks.

Floor is Lava LTM changes

Epic Games didn’t make any insane changes to the mode, but some minor tweaks were done to help make the mode more accessible to players.

These changes included lowering lava damage and buffing the weapon drops among other things.

Here’s the full list of changes that were made to the Floor is Lava LTM.

  1. Weapons will be Uncommon or better
  2. 30 seconds added to the first Storm wait time
  3. Cannons turned on
  4. Lava damage lowered from 20 to 15

These small changes should be enough to keep the mode fun for everyone but also lower the difficulty of it across the board.

Epic Games does listen to player feedback so it’s extremely likely they have heard the what seems to be an overwhelmingly negative response to the new patch so it’s possible we can see some more changes not LTM-related in the future.


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
