Fortnite LTM List Guide – All Limited Time Modes!

Our Fortnite LTM List features all of the LTMs that have been featured in the game throughout the history of Fortnite! LTM stands for Limited Time Mode, and they are a way for Epic to experiment with different things with the game engine. Features that were played with in the LTMs have eventually made their way into the game. Siphon is a good example, it was briefly apart of the main Battle Royale mode, and is now a permanent feature of Arena, which is the competitive mode in the game.

Fortnite LTM List

The descriptions listed below are Epic's official summaries of the LTMs. I'll add notes if anything has changed with some of them. Some of the listed LTMs are from leaks, so they may not have been in the game yet!

50v50

Two teams of fifty players fight to the finish! This mode has extra loot and resources, a storm that is more lethal, and a shorter match length time than the standard Battle Royale modes. Each team drops from their own Battle Bus. Press jump to redeploy your glider when falling from large heights. Get in and help your team to victory!

Air Royale

Climb aboard a Stormwing and take to the skies in this fast-paced mode where players fight to be the last one flying!

Automatics

The only weapons in the game are the automatic firing ones. Spray and pray!

Barebones

This mode has the map, compass, storm timer and many other elements of the Heads Up Display turned off. Determining who is friendly and who isn't during firefights and staying away from the storm will be key to picking up a Victory Royale!

Blitz!

Blitz is a faster-paced version of Battle Royale. The match begins with the storm moving towards the island, and the delay between each circle is shorter than normal, creating matches that are 15 minutes long or less. The map also has extra loot and resources. Profile Stats count in this mode, so fight hard for the Victory Royale!

Builder's Paradise

All player-built structures have drastically increased health, but a true builder doesn’t break down walls, they edit through them! Neutral editing has been turned on to allow players to edit structures no matter which team placed them. And what kind of paradise would keep a builder short on supplies? Building material drop rates are increased to allow as much building as desired!

Catch!

In this mode, all guns have been removed. The only weapons are grenades and other items that can be thrown or tossed. Get in there and throw the enemies back to the lobby!

Chameleon

Last man standing rules, but players have the ability to turn into different props around the map.

Close Encounters

Close Quarters Combat with Shotguns & Jetpacks! If you find a jetpack, double-tap the jump button to take off. Keep the button held down to apply thrust. Make sure to land before it runs out of fuel!

Close Encounters 50s

Two teams of 50 in close quarters combat with Shotguns & Jetpacks! If you find a jetpack, double-tap the jump button to take off. Keep the button held down to apply thrust. Make sure to land before it runs out of fuel!

Disco Domination

It's time for the ultimate dance-off. Dance Floors have spawned around the Battle Royale island. Take them over by clearing out any enemies and then dancing to raise a disco ball up from the floor. The team that earns the most points by capturing and defending the dance floors will win the match!

Downtown Drop

Created by NotNellaf & Tollmolia in collaboration with Jordan Brand. Show off your moves in the Downtown Drop LTM. Launch off massive jumps, grind down city streets and collect coins to win! Prove you deserve the title of G.O.A.T.

Driftin'

Land near a Red Supply Drop, grab a Driftboard and some weapons, meet up with your team and race to eliminate the enemies. Last team standing wins!

Endgame

Thanos and his Chitauri horde invades the Battle Royale island, in search of the six Infinity Stones. Fighting against them is a team of heroes wielding mythic Avengers items. Each time a stone is found, Thanos & his army will grow more powerful. If all six are found, the heroes will no longer be able to respawn, and Thanos can eliminate those who remain to win. Chitauri will respawn when eliminated until their army is decimated. They must help Thanos find the stones before this happens to achieve victory.

Final Fight

Final Fight is Battle Royale with an alternate ending! Instead of the storm circles closing all the way in, they will stop part way through the match, triggering a Final Countdown. The team with the most players alive at the end of the Countdown wins the Victory Royale!

Floor is Lava

If a player is knocked down they become invulnerable to damage, but the heal over time effect that their teammate has will change to damage over time. Revive your partner as fast as possible!

Loadout Swap

All players gets a new loadout that continues to change through the course of a match. Compete to be the last one standing, and prove you are the best with a variety of weapons!

Fortnitemares

The Cube strikes back, bringing Fortnitemares to Battle Royale! Drop in and discover what the Cube has unleashed.

  1. Actually the Unvaulted and Classic LTM’s are different now. Classic has weapons that are vaulted and weapons that aren’t, Unvaulted has only weapons that are vaulted in the main gamemodes.
