Today begins the Fortnite Red vs. Blue weekend, a three-day event that will revolve around multiple team deathmatch game modes, including Red vs. Blue Rumble, Advanced and XS. The limited time mode will be accompanied by an update to the Item Shop that brings items from the Red Team and the Blue Team to players who wish to represent their favorite team.
If you have been playing Fortnite for some time, you may be familiar with the Creative Red vs. Blue modes – they appear on the game selection screen from time to time and remain popular with players. As the name suggests, the game mode simply revolves around dividing players into two teams, one that is Red and the other Blue.
Although you are assigned to a team when entering a match, these maps generally allow you to switch to the opposite team, if you prefer. Players choose a lot of weapons based on what the map offers and then build and fight the other team in a large open arena.
Epic is highlighting three Red vs. Blue maps in particular for its weekend event: Red vs. Blue Rumble, RED VS BLUE ADVANCED and RED VS BLUE (XS). The first of the three maps is designed for fast-paced battles, offering a variety of powerful weapons from the start and infinite rebirth.
Advanced mode is for players who want more challenges – you should gather weapons, for example, instead of choosing a convenient selection of vending machines at the start. Finally, the XS map is a closed map that requires a strict strategy; this mode has infinite respawn and important weapons at the beginning.
Visit the Epic blog to get the codes for each of these creative maps. Red vs Blue items will be available in the Item Shop from today until May 2.
