After being added to the game with patch v4.5 on Wednesday morning, Fortnite’s Final Fight Teams of 12 Limited Time Mode has been removed from live servers and replaced with the much more popular 50v50 mode.
Fortnite’s Final Fight Mode, which debuted with a teams-of-20 version last week, has never been the community’s favorite exercise. So, Epic was certainly taking a risk when it decided to run the mode twice in a row, this time with groups of 12 instead. The mode was met with harsh feedback from the community — especially after Playground Mode was disabled only a few hours after going live. Finally, Epic went ahead and removed the Final Fight mode part way through its run, and replaced it with the far more popular 50v50 Limited Time Mode.
In a post about the decision to remove Final Fight, Epic said, “We’ve heard your feedback regarding the Final Fight LTM and we agree that the mode isn’t quite in a state where we want it to be.”
This version of the 50v50 mode has also been modified slightly since its last appearance on live servers. The new Dual Pistols weapon will now spawn twice as often, as will bounce pads. Resource gains have all been increased by 50 percent.
Fortnite’s 50v50 mode will be online from now until next week’s content update, when a new Limited Time Mode will likely replace it.
