A new game mode is now live! Squad up for Fortnite Reload

Welcome to Fortnite Reload, a new action-packed Battle Royale mode with classic weapons, classic locations, and classic vibes for you and your squad!

Squaddies reboot in Fortnite Reload, so long as one member of the team remains. Reload is a 40-player experience on a tighter map featuring familiar locations like Tilted Towers and Retail Row. A full team wipe means Game Over! Whether you choose Battle Royale or Zero Build, the last squad standing wins. Here’s how it works:

When eliminated, a player’s individual reboot timer starts. The player reboots at the end of the timer!

Reboot timers begin at 30 seconds and scale up to 40 seconds later in the match.

Remaining teammates can reduce reboot timers by 2 seconds by downing an opponent, 4 seconds by eliminating one, and 10 seconds by wiping an opposing squad.

When downed, players can opt to start their reboot timer right away instead of waiting for a revive.

Towards the end of the match, reboots will stop, meaning lost teammates will no longer return.

Déjà-boot, déjà-loot

This compact island is easy to traverse on foot, so there are no drivable vehicles, but you will find a medley of unvaulted loot. Here’s just a handful of items returning for Reload at launch:

  • Revolver

  • Tactical Shotgun

  • Lever Action Shotgun

  • OG Heavy Shotgun

  • Tactical Submachine Gun

  • Infantry Rifle

  • Heavy Assault Rifle

  • Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

  • Rocket Launcher

  • Grappler

Reload rewards

Fortnite Reload has intro Quests rewarding 20,000 XP each. Complete three to unlock the Digital Dogfight Contrail, six for the Pool Cubes Wrap, and nine to get the NaNa Bath Back Bling! Avoid all accusations of having no chill. If you bag a Victory Royale, you’ll snag The Rezzbrella Glider! No matter how many times you reboot, keep strengthening your rez-olve.
