Fortnite Solo Showdown: Everything You Need to Know

Ninja Proves He's a Solo Squad Master After Winning 1v7

In order to qualify, you'll need to play 50 Solo Showdown matches. It's not yet clear how the mode will work in terms of cross-platform play (whether iOS players are measured directly against console or PC players, or they get their own rankings).

Aside from the massive bragging rights and fame that can be obtained via this limited time event, there's also the matter of the V-Bucks rewards.

Solo Showdown is available now and runs through May 21. Instead, Fortnite Solo Showdown will keep track of a player's performance during 50 rounds.

Police probe whether Autopilot feature was on in Tesla crash
Investors gave Mr Musk some rare criticism after the call in which he referred to one analyst as a "boring bonehead". The Tesla Autopilot system uses various sensors, cameras, and radar to provide semi-autonomous driving to drivers.

As seen in the tweet below from the Twitter account known as Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks, a recent datamine of the game's Update 4.2 files seems to have made a reference in the patch's code to a Limited Time Mode known as Close Encounters, which will feature "close-quarters combat with Shotguns and Jetpacks". Get some practice knocked out in the standard solo queue in Fortnite Battle Royale, but make sure you get your 50 placement matches done before the end date. Finishing first in a match will earn you a full 100 point, which drops all the way down to just 25 points for places 76 to 100. The prizes for the rest of the top 100 aren't anything to stick your nose up at, either: 2nd-4th place will get 25,000 V-Bucks, 5th-50th will get 13,500, and 51st-100th will get 7,500. The top 100 players will be awarded. Everyone who completes 50 matches, however, will get a unique spray.

Place between 50 and 5 and you'll get 13,500 V-bucks, while fourth, third and second place get 25,000 and the victor gets a whopping 50,000.

Aside from Jetpacks, the aforementioned datamine also possibly uncovered even more content to come to Fortnite during Season 4, with a Competitive Mode on the way, as well as a slew of new skins, pickaxes, and gliders.
