Fortnite isn’t just a Battle Royale game. Aside from the “Save the World” mode that is nowhere near as popular, there are also Limited Time Modes, or “LTMs” for short, rotating in and out of circulation. Each one has a certain set of rules that you must adhere to, while competing against a different number of players in order to succeed. They can be a fun diversion, even if some are a bit on the mindless side, while others are even more tense than the main game. This guide lists all of the LTMs that have come and gone, as well as provide links to more in-depth guides about the modes we’ve checked out.

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.
