This morning, Fortnite’s Shopping Cart update (which is update 4.3) hit the wildly popular battle royale game, which added a plethora of new features from the unorthodox transportation to a number of quality-of-life changes. Moreover, the update brought back two Limited Time Modes to the game, namely Blitz V2 and Teams of 20 V2. Each mode may have been added for those dedicated players who have a little less time on their hands for a match, as each event features a shorter match length.
Teams of 20 V2 is compromised of five teams of twenty players, with this improved event giving each team their own bus, so that Fortnite squads can drop together easier. Moreover, it will have six, instead of the typical nine, Storm Circles, which should help matches end within 20 minutes. Lastly, all stats are counted in this mode except for wins.
The other mode, Blitz V2, promises players “faster storms, more loot, [and] exciting finishes!” This mode lowers the Battle Bus so players can get to the ground quicker and is updated with every weapon and item (Port-a-fort, Cling, LMG, and more) that has launched since Blitz was last made available. Like the previous version, the storm begins to shrink at the start of the match and closes in a lot sooner. Unlike Teams of 20 V2, all stats, including wins, are counted in this mode.
Moreover, Blitz V2 has a maximum match length of 15 minutes, and both Limited Time Modes include increased treasure chests and ammo boxes. For the Fortnite player trying to get in a quick match, these LTMs may just be the thing.
Alongside these two limited-time events, many players may be excited about the addition of the Shopping Carts. However, it’s worth mentioning that, on PC, there is a glitch that kills every player on the map when a player tries to ride in a Shopping Cart (attributing the kills to the would-be Cart rider). While they should perhaps be avoided for now, Blitz V2 and Teams of 20 V2 may provide a solid distraction.
Fortnite is available now in early access on iOS, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One.
