Fortnite's Solo Showdown mode offers prizes to the best of the best

Fortnite's Solo Showdown mode offers prizes to the best of the best

At the end of each game, players will receive a score: the victor gets 100 points, and it gradually decreases from there on: finishing 20th gets you 50 points, and the last 25 players (76-100) get 25 points.

For once, there won't be any toxicity to worry about in a game's competitive mode: Fortnite players can't speak to each other while they're in a solo game, and there's no teammates to yell at you if you don't win as a duo or squad. With that being said, here are all the prizes that players can earn if they manage to remain alive for a longer time than their foes. Considering Solo Showdown is only available from today, May 17, until May 21, that doesn't give you all that much time to squeeze in 50 matches. It's a nice reward even if you don't win the V-Buck prize. Cumulative scores will then be generated from across the player's' 50 matches. Instead, Fortnite Solo Showdown will keep track of a player's performance during 50 rounds.

The player who comes in first by the end of the competition will take home a whopping 50,000 V-Bucks.

For those unaware, Jetpacks were initially set for inclusion in Fortnite during Season 3 of the title, but the item received an indefinite delay from Epic Games due to the developer having discovered an undisclosed flaw in its design. Second to fourth places will earn 25,000 V-Bucks each.

Epic announced that the objective of launching this mode is just the first step in helping it learn "how to build great events for all types of players". If you're interested in participating, you can read the full rules over on Fortnite's official website. The developer also teases that it has a "major announcement about competitive play" sometime next week, although it hasn't hinted at what that could be.
