How the new Disco Domination LTM works in Fortnite, including latest changes

The v6.02 update brought with it several new additions into Fortnite Battle Royale, including the new Disco Domination Limited Time Mode.

As its name suggests, the Disco Domination LTM is a Domination-type game mode that requires players to locate, capture, and dance on Dance Floors on the Fortnite map, earning points in the process.

The team features two teams of 50 players and five Dance Floors, which will appear on the map anytime the Storm is not moving.

Players will then need to get onto the Dance Floors and start doing emotes, at which point a disco ball at the center will start rising until it reaches a maximum height, signaling full capture. 

Once capturing one of the floors, the team’s “dance bar” will begin filling up until an enemy player stands on the floor or the Storm begins to move to the next circle. The team which fills up their bar to 100% first wins. 

Perhaps the most notable aspect of this mode is that it has respawning enabled up to a certain point, which makes it one of the very few LTMs in Fortnite that allows players to spawn back in after getting eliminated. 

Here is some gameplay of the new LTM, courtesy of popular Fortnite YouTuber ‘dakotaz.’

Since its release, Fortnite have released a hotfix implementing several changes to the mode:

– Reduces the rate at which the circles close (2 Minutes per)
– Increases the score requirement to win (33% Increase)
– Changed last respawn circle from the 2nd to the 3rd

The full details on the Disco Domination LTM, as provided in the v6.02 patch notes, can be seen below:

LIMITED TIME MODE: DISCO DOMINATION

Summary
It’s time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor. The team that fills their meter the fastest by capturing and defending the dance floors will win the match!

Mode Details

  • Two teams battle it out!
  • Respawning will be turned on until the third (last) storm circle.
  • Five dance floors will appear on the map whenever the storm is not moving. 
  • Emoting on a dance floor when no enemies are present will raise a disco ball in the center of the floor, and capture it for your team.
    • The more friendly players dancing on a floor, the faster it will be captured. 
  • Once a floor is captured, it will begin filling the team’s “dance bar” on the HUD, until either an enemy stands on it or the current storm timer ends and the storm begins to move. The first team to fill their dance bar to 100% will win the match.
  • The dance floors in the later stages of the match fill the bar more quickly, so don’t give up if your team is behind!
  • It is not possible to build on or over the dance floors, but they can be protected by surrounding them with a fort.
  • Glider redeploy is activated in this mode, press jump while falling to use your glider.
  • This mode uses 50v50 levels of loot and resources.

TimTheTatman rage quits after finding three fishing rods in Fortnite

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
