Fortnite adds new One Shot LTM for final day of 14 Days of Fortnite

Epic Games have launched their last new Limited Time Mode for the 14 Days of Fortnite event, with the brand new ‘One Shot’ – a low gravity sniper battle.

A truly revolutionary mode, One Shot incorporates the low gravity mechanics used in previous seasons, and puts a completely new twist on the standard battle royale gameplay.

Not only are weapons limited to snipers only, healing items are also limited only to bandages. Every player is limited to a mere 50 health too, guaranteeing those ‘one shot’ eliminations.

The mode is available in squads, meaning you and up to three friends can take on the One Shot LTM together, and hone those sniping skills.

Of all the weapon types, snipers can be the most tricky to use, and require some experience to consistently hit moving targets at varying ranges. Making matters worse, the low gravity in One Shot LTM will mean you will have to deal with enemies high in the air too.

Because of the health being limited to 50 however, the typical dominance of the heavy sniper won’t apply in One Shot LTM, as faster firing snipers such as the semi-auto, will be more desirable, given no matter what it will kill in one hit.

Low gravity means you won’t need to worry about fall damage in the One Shot LTM.

In addition to the new LTM, the final day of 14 Days of Fortnite also sees a new challenge go live, which is to search for 14 chests. Doing so will earn players the free reward, which for Day 14 is the ‘Equalizer’ glider.

Whether this new One Shot LTM lasts longer than just Day 14 remains to be seen, but if players like it, Epic Games could consider bringing it back in the future or extending it.

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.
