It’s the sixth day of the 14 Days of Fortnite event, which means there is a new Limited Time Mode now active, with the classic ‘Close Encounters’ making a return.
On Day 5, Epic Games actually blessed players with two fresh LTM’s – Sniper Shootout and Disco Domination – but no such luck for Christmas eve.
Close Encounters is a fan favorite however, one of the very first LTM’s tested out in the early days of Fortnite Battle Royale, and Disco Domination also stays in rotation, so we’re not complaining.
The highlight feature of Close Encounters is of course the jetpacks, which make their return for the first time in months.
For weapon choices, you are limited to shotguns only, but the standard equipment and consumables are also available – and the new grappler is also in play.
Disco Domination has also been renamed to the ‘Holiday Disco LTM’.

Since there’s been a few days of old LTM’s being brought back, players are expecting a brand new LTM to drop on Christmas Day.
The full list of LTM’s expected in the 14 Days of Fortnite event was leaked prior to the event starting, including a number never seen before modes. One such mode was ‘One Shot’, which was a sniper only mode where players on have 50 health – and low gravity is enabled.
However, for Day 7 on December 25, it is expected that ‘Team Rumble’ (teams of 24) and Solid Gold will be the LTM’s in play.
