Fortnite Battle Royale - Blitz Mode Now Live!

Fortnite just released a tweet that their new mode Blitz is now live.

Blitz mode brings with it a fun new way to play the game with modifiers and timers. Treasures are increased but the strength of the tresuare chests and ammo crates have alos been increased. With games only lasting 15 mins, it makes for an intense mode. I have included below a list (direct for Fortnite's site) of all the changes coming in the new Blitz mode:

  • Limited Time Mode: Blitz
    *NOTE: This mode will be enabled on 3/19.
    • Blitz has much shorter storm times resulting in faster & more intense matches!
      • Maximum match length is 15 minutes.
    • The match will start with the storm circle already closing in over the island.
    • Adjustments to loot availability:
      • Increased chances of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%.
      • Increased chances of ammo boxes spawning from 65-80% to 85-95%.
      • Floor Loot spawns nearly 100% of the time.
      • Supply Drop spawn interval lessened from 180s (+/- 30s) to 80s (+/- 20s).
      • Supply Drop descent time shortened from 60s to 30s.
      • Launchpad spawn likelihood greatly increased.
    • Harvesting resources doubled.
    • Resources found in loot increased from 30 to 100.
  • Treasure chest health increased from 200 to 500.
  • Ammo box health increased from 120 to 250.
