What Is Fortnite 5 Teams of 20?
Fortnite 5 Teams of 20 will be splitting the usual 100 players up. Players will then be assigned to a team of 20. Five teams will have to duke it out and as always, last one standing wins! Just like any other limited time mode, the wins you get in this mode will not count towards your stats. However, Battle Pass challenges can be completed in this event. Besides that, you’ll be able to spot your teammates on the map. You can either squad up or go solo and be matched with other players. Any non-squad teammates will show up on your map as green markers.
