Though, despite the mode not offering huge changes to Fortnite Battle Royale gameplay, it will provide "the ultimate test of survival". Players compete to earn a spot on the standings, and those with a high enough score by the end of the competition will be rewarded with a huge prize of V-Bucks. That's right, the players who top the leaderboards by the end of the event will get a share of a big prize pot. The player who manages to secure first place will get 50,000 V-Bucks. Everyone who completes 50 matches will receive a one-off spray.

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. 2nd through 4th will get 25,000 V-Bucks. The Solo Showdown will be running from today through May 21st with players able to earn up to 50,000 V-Bucks and the top 100 players recognized for their achievement.
