Fortnite players who double as Red Dead Redemption fans will have something to look forward to, if leaks claiming a new ‘Wild West’ mode is coming to the battle royale game soon are accurate.

Fortnite’s LTM’s (limited time mode) are game modes with specific game settings and rules which are cycled in and out of the game, to give players something different from the standard battle royale game type.

In the v6.30 update, the new Food Fight LTM was added, which features respawns and other big changes, but it appears that this wasn’t the only LTM added in the update.

Data miners have also discovered file names and descriptions for another, as yet unannounced LTM – ‘Wild West’ – which will be a stripped back version of the standard game.

According to the leak, many of the standard weapons and consumables have been taken out, leaving only single shot weapons and shotguns.

  • This mode has no automatic weapons, rocket launcher or traps.
  • Check supply drops for slurp juice. Regular shields pots have been removed from this mode.
  • Dynamite can be used to great effect! It’s the only explosive found in the Wild West!

That leaves only weapons such as Hunting Rifles, shotguns, revolvers and dynamite. It also explains the leaked TNT Bundle item being added, despite the Remote Explosives being vaulted recently.

It also gives a thematic home for skins such as Calamity and Deadfire, which seemed to be just random additions, now will look right at home in this mode.

There are no details about the team sizes in this mode, whether it will be Solos, Duos, Squads or something larger like 50v50.

Epic Games hasn’t announced anything officially about the Wild West LTM, so we don’t know yet when it will go live in game.


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.
