Fortnite Battle Royale isn’t just about the Battle Royale mode. It has Limited Time Modes, or LTMs for short, that change up the game in different ways. Team Rumble on the other hand is essentially a deathmatch mode, complete with respawns. This guide goes over the rules for Team Rumble, as well as providing some small tips to get started playing this temporary mode.
Fortnite Team Rumble LTM guide
With the game being the global sensation that it is, there’s a lot to learn about not only getting that all-important “Victory Royale”, but also the changes to the map as the seasons progress, and the challenges you can seek to complete. Head over to our Fortnite guide hub for every single thing you need to get started. Alternatively, you can head back to our Fortnite Limited Time Modes (LTM) for all the possible LTMs in Fortnite.
Team Rumble Rules
Two teams of 50 players start at each side of the map. The aim is to be the first team to get 100 kills, which can be done by any means. All the currently active weapons are available and there are otherwise no changes from the standard game. The Storm seems to move at a normal rate, but loot has also been tweaked so that it only has green or above (no common weapons).
Best Strategies for Team Rumble LTM
This mode is your classic deathmatch mode, just featuring two teams of 50 players duking it out. As such, it’s rather easy to understand conceptually, but there are some things you should probably know from the get go.
Firstly, respawning players mean that people are more likely to be far less careful when running around and gliding into the map on respawn. You can use this to your advantage, particularly if you are well trained with the sniper rifle. Since everyone tends to go for the central mountain point of the map, they’re likely to either glide on top of it, or use the ziplines. Should they use the latter, you can predict where they’ll go and snipe them. Some may get clever and begin jumping, but just predict where they’ll reconnect with the zipline to deal with that. If you’re able to kill someone from afar with this, pat yourself on the back as it is still quite the feat.
As mentioned before, people go to the central point of the map. You should be on the lookout for the best weapons to deal with the situation, more on that in our Fortnite weapons guide. Should you wish to contribute, try to either snipe from afar or get stuck in, as long as you have a decent weapon on hand. If you happen to have rocket launchers, or a very good shotgun, then you can do some serious damage. Just be aware that you’re probably not going to last a long time as this mountain is a death trap.
Whenever you do die, you tend to respawn somewhere near where the white ring is on the map. It tends to be on the side where the Battle Bus dropped your team off too, though you can of course glide anywhere from that point. It’s generally not advised to head straight into the centre mountain unless you’re packing some serious gear and know how to use it. The glider can however be redeployed at any time and you should definitely abuse this. Jump of high places and open the glider to get around the map quickly.
Other than that, the same general tips will apply for any other Battle Royale game in Fortnite. You can check out tips for Fortnite vehicles, as well as learn how to maintain your health in our Fortnite health and shields guide.
