Fortnite Gets Its Own Version of Team Deathmatch

Published 04/20/2021, 1:45 PM EDT


Fortnite is foremost when it comes to new and engaging content for the players. Epic Games has always seen to it that the game does not run out of fresh content and has been successful in doing so through numerous partnerships and gameplay additions. It is one of the ways in which Epic Games has managed to maintain the popularity of Fortnite, although it is one of the oldest titles of its kind, by ensuring that the game does not lose its relevance.

The current season in the game was off to a rocky start. Most of the community hated the sixth season of Chapter 2 when it went live in the game. However, the release of the 16.10 updated patch brought the game back to speed quite expeditiously. It made some much-needed tweaks to certain gameplay elements and basically delivered what fans have been asking for quite a while now.

Speaking of new additions, Fortnite has added a new game mode recently. This one is basically its own version of the popular Deathmatch gameplay mode. The iconic Fortnite pro and streamer SypherPK has recently tried this mode out in one of his latest videos, and it does look kind of fun.

Fortnite has found its own Deathmatch in the form of the new Solo Rumble: Siphon LTM

So here is how it works. The Solo Rumble: Siphon LTM pits you against 49 other players in a Battle Royale match where you will respawn every time you are killed. Furthermore, each Solo Rumble match has a goal that you need to achieve in order to end the match. For example, in one of the matches, Sypher’s goal was to get 60 eliminations.

Sypher says that he had been overlooking this mode since he has never been a fan of Team Rumbles. However, after trying it out, he found it to be a lot more fun. These LTMs that Epic keeps coming up with are some sort of litmus tests to see if fans like the concept. Judging by that, it seems that we might see this mode make its way into the game again sometime.

Furthermore, this LTM has been able to breathe some life into the solo gameplay of Fortnite. To quote Sypher himself, “Normal solos have kind of been dry for me lately.” With the Solo Rumble: Siphon LTM, Epic seems to be addressing the “lack of action” issue even further.
