Fortnite's first competitive mode is Solo Showdown

After that, Epic will tally the results for each players' first 50 Solo Showdown matches (you must play at least 50 to qualify and any match results after that won't affect your ranking).

His rise to the top has taken place alongside the expansion of Fortnite: Battle Royale, which has quickly become a worldwide phenomenon following its release in 2017.

Aside from the massive bragging rights and fame that can be obtained via this limited time event, there's also the matter of the V-Bucks rewards.

The Solo Showdown mode started this morning and runs until 10 AM EST on Monday.

As you can probably guess from the name, Solo Showdown will be an every-man-for-himself mode that's inaccessible to players queuing as duos or squads.

Epic today announced the next limited-time game mode for Fortnite, and it's called Solo Showdown. The position of the players is also decided based on points gathered over 50 matches. If you're placed 51 through 100, you'll get 7,500, which will normally set you back $60. All of which consist of Fortnite's V-Bucks currency, though.

First place will net a whopping 50,000 V-Bucks, which is enough to buy quite a few skins from Fortnite's shop.

And a note for people who suck at Fortnite like me: everybody who finishes their 50 qualifying matches will get an exclusive in-game spray regardless of performance.

The best player will win 50,000 V-Bucks.

The new mode is going on from now until May 21st at 10 AM ET. Claiming Victory Royale in a qualifying Solo Showdown match will earn you 100 placement points, second place will get you 94, and the points steadily drop down to a minimum of 25 points for players 76 through 100.

Get ready to get sweaty as Fortnite gets a more competitive game type than ever before.
