Fortnite: New 'Unbalanced' LTM concept sounds amazingly ridiculous

Since its launch, Fortnite Battle Royale has featured numerous weapons, items, and vehicles that have been either nerfed or vaulted due to being overpowered.

With the idea that so many of those weapons and items were unbalanced, reducing their effectiveness or removing them was an effort on the part of the developers to the keep the core default modes balanced and fair. 

However, Reddit user 'blur_revision' has thought of the idea of bringing them all back in a brand new Limited Time Mode that would appropriately be called 'Unbalanced.'

This LTM would feature all of the weapons, items, and vehicles in the game, that were either nerfed or vaulted, but in their original, overpowered state and without the measures taken to reduce their effectiveness. 

Although this would mean that a lot of the vaulted items would be making a return, it should not be confused with a vaulted item LTM, as a lot of the weapons that are currently in the game would also feature, albeit pre-nerf.

One of the most controversial items ever added to Fortnite, the Infinity Blade would be a perfect addition to the Unbalanced LTM.

To give you an idea of what sort of weapons, items, and vehicles would be available in this LTM, here is a list of things that were either vaulted or nerfed in Fortnite due to being considered unbalanced:

  • Drum Gun
  • Double Pump Meta
  • Remote Explosives
  • Infinity Gauntlet (Thanos)
  • Infinity Blade
  • Mounted Turrets
  • X-4 Stormwing
  • Guided Missile
  • 50 Round Compact SMG 
  • Zapatron 
  • Jetpacks
  • and much, much more!

Although Thanos and his Infinity Gauntlet had their own LTM and were never in the core modes, they would certainly fit the bill for the chaos in the Unbalanced LTM.

Although the Reddit user doesn't go into too much detail about his LTM concept, it would probably be better off if it only features the items that were unbalanced and not the full array of what's also currently available in Fortnite and are not considered overpowered. 

Ironically, the fact that every item, weapon, and vehicle in the LTM would be unbalanced would make the mode itself very balanced since everyone will have access and be able to use overpowered things. 

The result would likely be hilariously chaotic as players will be able to eliminate with one another in ways that would remind everyone why the items were nerfed or vaulted in the first place.
