Epic games introduced a 50v50 game mode in December, which went down as a success. However some people complained that it was nothing like the trailer, and that it was pretty boring at times. The Fortnite community have been asking for this game mode to come back but perhaps with a small overall squad size. Something that is bigger than the 4 man teams, but smaller than 50v50 would be an interesting game mode. Many have suggested either having 10 teams of 10, or 4 teams of 25 and it seems that this could be coming to Fortnite in the near future.

In a recent dev update, systems designs Eric Williamson said “We’re also looking at trying to do an LTM somewhere inbetween squads and 50 vs 50”. Whilst Eric did say they’ll keep us updated on the possible LTM and not committing to a rough date, it’s safe to assume that it could be coming to Fortnite pretty soon. This would be a welcomed addition,, especially with the popular Sniper Shootout coming to an end this coming Monday.

However, we’re pretty sure that Epic will be focusing their attention on fixing the issues that have plagued the game for the last couple of weeks, including lag, performance issues with console, and screen resolution issues. Also, Epic has announced that the new shooting model will be available for players to test, starting on the 5th February, in a limited game mode. If you’d like to read more about the new shooting model and what the changes are, read our other article that covers this here.

Be sure to let us know in the comments section below what you think of the possibility of having a 10 or 25 man squad. Is this something you’d want or would you much rather just have 50v50 coming back?

10s

I think that 10s is good but I’m commonly run into the problem of trying to pick only 3 of my friends. So if this mode could have more friends and not randoms so we can communicate in party, that would be very nice.

make a game mode where you start as squads but when you down people they can be on your team until you hit 10 people

Bad idea, Josh. I doubt very much a group of friends where one would have to join the other team would be very co-operative with his new teammates, he’ll most likely hinder you, or run to them so they can kill him so he can join back.

I think teams of 10 will be best. However it needs to be made to parties of 10 so you can play with more than three of yours friends. I have that problem now and it sucks when we are all on at the same time because someone is left out. Make it more party related than randoms.

Teams of ten would be great if you can invite friends to party. We have more than 4 in our core player group and someone always has to sit out great idea let’s run with it.

I thin that you should do 10 team members because 25 is too Much, you can be in top 4 team if every team has 25 teammates so that’s my decision of putting 10 members in the team in fortnite battle royal
