Newly found leaks in Fortnite Battle Royale point to a new Limited Time Mode coming soon that would feature the traditional format of Gungame but in reverse. 

What is Gungame?

Gungame is a popular multiplayer game mode found in various shooters that features a lobby of players trying to eliminate each other in a free-for-all-style format.

All of the players starts out with the same lower-tier weapon loadout and and after each kill, the player advances to the next weapon loadout on the list.

The game ends when one player manages to get a kill with every single weapon loadout on the list, which is usually comprise of 18-20 weapons, both ballistic and melee. 

What is Reverse Gungame and how would it work?

According to leaks uncovered by prominent data-miner @FortTory, there is a Reverse Gungame LTM coming soon to Fortnite that would flip the classic Gungame format on its head.

Instead of players starting off with the lower-tier weapons, they would start with the same powerful weapons and work themselves down, until one player gets through the entire list from best to worst and earns the Victory Royale.

In addition, FortTory has discovered and leaked game files that reveal further details about the Reverse Gungame LTM, such as the fact that lobbies will consist of 20 players and everyone has to be playing individually, meaning that there can not be parties or squads.

Would Reverse Gungame work in Fortnite?

While there hasn’t been much information revealed about the Reverse Gungame LTM other than what’s included above, fans are already eagerly hatching ideas for how the mode would work in Fortnite.

For one, since there appears to be a 20-player limit to each lobby with no squads, players are speculating that matches would take place either in a randomly selected area rather than the whole map, or that the Storm circle would be constantly shrinking and at a high rate.

Also, since in traditional Gungame, players can get demoted a weapon if they get killed via melee, a similar system could be in place in Reverse Gungame for players who get eliminated by a pickaxe attack. 

Much like traditional Gungame, the Reverse Gungame LTM could allow players to demote each other by eliminating them with their pickaxe.

When does the Reverse Gungame LTM release in Fortnite?

Unfortunately, the release date for the Reverse Gungame LTM has not yet been found in game files, so there’s no real way to know when it would go live in Fortnite.

In fact, considering that all of the information we know about it is from leaks and none of it has been officially announced, this LTM may end up never seeing the light of day.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
