Team Rumble LTM We now have a brand new LTM and tournament in Fortnite.

The next major addition is the Team Rumble Limited Time Mode (LTM). Epic describes it as, “Two large teams fight for the Victory Royale in an action-packed mode where the first team to get 100 eliminations wins!”

Below are the patch notes which elaborate on the LTM rules and settings:

  • Two teams of 20 players.
