The new Playground Limited Time Mode has been a hugely successful addition in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

With its low-pressure environment and virtually limitless possibilities, the new mode has become an instant favorite among many in the game’s vast player-base.

The premise of the LTM is simple, up to four players can load into a private match and have one hour to essentially do whatever they want.

Every single chest and Loot Llama loads into the game, and the amount of resources obtained from mining and harvesting is greatly amplified.

However, as good as the mode is, it’s not perfect, and there are ways that it can be improved in future versions.

That being said, here are ten ways we believe that the Playground LTM can be improved:

(1) Aim Assist on Console

While players on PC and Mac do not have to worry about aim assist, it is still a huge aspect of gunfights on console platforms. Therefore, adding it for the console versions of the Playground LTM would be a major improvement.

(2) Increased Player Limit

Currently, the number of players that can load into a Playground match is limited to four. Increasing that number would allow larger groups of friends to play with and against each other, and open the door to more competitive type matches.

(3) Longer Time Limit

As of now, a single match in the new mode is limited to one hour before the incoming Storm eliminates all players. Lengthening this limit would give players more time to create structures that are even more awesome and spectacular than they currently are able to do.

(4) Maximum Resources From the Start

As mentioned previously, the mining of resources in the new mode has been made very fast and easy. So easy, that it would make more sense to just give players maximum resources from the start.

Should someone run out and need more resources, then they can easily mine some more.

(5) Disabling Editing of Others’ Builds

Many top Fortnite players are using the new mode as an opportunity to battle out against each other without having to worry about others shooting at them.

However, everyone has the ability to edit each others’ builds, which can throw many 1v1 battles off balance. Disabling the ability for a player to edit another’s builds would greatly improve these awesome build-fights.

(6) Manually Called in Supply Drops

Giving players the ability to manually call in Supply Drops would allow them to traverse to areas of the map where not many chests and Llamas spawn in

This would also help players quickly restock up on resources, weapons, and items after they are eliminated and have to respawn without an empty loadout. 

(7) Regenerating Chests and Loot Llamas

Having chests and Loot Llamas regenerate shortly after being opened would allow for players to not have to move around the map for more loot, while at the same time not really affecting how much loot is in the game since it’s already virtually unlimited.

(8) Make Spawn Island Accessible

One cool addition to the Playground mode would be to start players off at the Spawn Island, where they can have all the fun they want. 

Then, players can manually load into the Battle Bus once they are ready to move on to the main map.

(9) Addition of AI Bots

The ability for players to add AI bots in the LTM would allow them to put in some good practice and go a long way in helping improve gunskill and shot accuracy. 

This new feature would also allow players to manually adjust the difficulty of the bots.

(10) Floor Spawning of Brand New Weapons and Items

Epic Games are constantly adding in new weapons and in-game items and what better way to let players try them out than by spawning them directly on the ground in Playground matches.

This would allow players to get a better feel for the new weapons immediately, instead of having to open countless chests hoping to get lucky.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points

  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
