It appears that there is a brand new Limited Time Mode coming soon to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Data miners have uncovered the ‘Tactics Showdown’ LTM in game files that appeared after the launch of the v5.0 update on July 12.

The Tactics Showdown mode was first leaked after being found in the v4.4 update files, but was never officially released.

According to news outlet ‘FortniteINTEL,’ all playlists were removed from the game files at the start of Season 5, except for the Playground and 50v50 modes, but now this image has appeared under the name BR_LTM-Tile_Tactics-Showdown:

It is not yet clear whether this is identical to the previous, unreleased version of the mode, but if it is, then it would likely follow the same description and format which were found in the original files.

Description
“This mode encourages tactical combat and building by putting a cap on the amount of resources and ammunition players can carry. Player-built structures also start off with less health than normal, and when players are eliminated they will drop fewer resources than normal”

Focus on the Fight.
Winning in Tactics Showdown requires careful aim and thoughtful use of building materials

Build Smart.
Try using natural cover in order to conserve resources!

Don’t Spray & Spray.
The cap on how much ammo can be carried is lower in this mode – make every shot count!

Considering the fact that this mode was discovered previously and not released, it would be wise to wait for an official confirmation and announcement from Epic Games before getting excited.

However, should this LTM get released, it would likely become popular due to its unique and more difficult format.

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits.

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
