One of Fortnite’s most popular Limited Time Modes has returned to the battle royale title, with the Getaway LTM ushering in a new batch of High Stakes challenges for players to complete – with some awesome rewards as the prize.

Epic Games rotates Limited Time Modes in and out to give players new ways to play the game, while making sure fans don’t get sick of one game mode too quickly.

Now, for the first time since Season 5, the Getaway LTM is back, and brought with it seven new challenges for players to complete alongside the Fortnite Season 8, Week 3 challenges. 

The Getaway LTM returns for the first time since Season 5.

Players have until Tuesday, March 19 to complete the seven challenges, at which point they will be locked and the Limited Time Mode will go back offline once again.

In Getaway, players race and battle each other to find the Jewel which has been hidden somewhere on the Fortnite map. Teams then attempt to escape in one of the getaway vans which are dotted around the island, with the first four squads to grab their Jewel and get away declared the winners.

The challenges for the Getaway mode are fairly straightforward, with players awarded new items like back bling and loading screens for completing challenges. You can view the full High Stakes challenges, and their rewards, below.

How to complete Fortnite’s High Stakes Challenges

Win matches of The Getaway

There are three challenges that require players to win matches of The Getaway, with players earning different Crystal Llama backblings for winning one, three or five matches respectively.

Use a Grappler in five different matches of The Getaway

Simple enough, pick up a Grappler from floor loot or a chest and use it. Repeat this in five different matches to get your hands on a special loading screen.

Pick up a Jewel in three different The Getaway matches

This challenge will require players to play the objective of this mode, as they will need to grab one of the four Jewels in three different matches to nab a special Cashflow Contrail.

Players will recieve the Cashflow Contrail for picking up a Jewel in three different matches.

Deal 200 damage to Jewel carrying opponents

Another easy challenge, hunt down an enemy player who is carrying a Jewel and fire your weapon at them. Deal 200 damage, and you receive a special commemorative spray.

Complete two The Getaway challenges

Finally, complete two High Stakes challenges to get your hands on the Crowbar harvesting tool. It doesn’t matter which two of the six you complete, so you can pick and choose what you want to do.

The Getaway LTM and High Stakes challenges are now live in Fortnite, so hop in and get to work on earning those rewards.


Vaulted & unvaulted weapons in Fortnite Season 5

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
