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.

Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
