After that, Epic will tally the results for each players' first 50 Solo Showdown matches (you must play at least 50 to qualify and any match results after that won't affect your ranking).

It's been just about eight months since Fortnite's Battle Royale mode launched, and in that time, plenty of players have become astoundingly good at the game.

Unlike the game's previous limited time modes, such as the recent introduction of Thanos in the Avengers: Infinity War crossover event, Solo Showdown does not change the core Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay.

Solo Showdown is available now and runs through May 21. While the rules will be same as in standard Solo mode, all matches will be scored, making this Fortnite's first attempt at ranked play.

And today (May 17), the biggest potential competitor to Fortnite and PUBG yet has announced an upcoming battle royale mode: Call of Duty, one of the most popular franchises of the last decade. You must play 50 Solo Showdown LTM matches to be eligible for a prize. Each match you complete will award you points, based on where you end up finishing.

The game files for Fortnite have folders for each game mode. First place will earn themselves a cool 50,000 V-Bucks.

2nd to 4th place will win 25,000 V-Bucks, players from 5th to 50th place will win 13,500 V-Bucks and 51st to 100th place can claim 7,500 V-Bucks.
