‘Fortnite’ Close Encounters Mode Down Due to Ammo Issues

Electronic Arts

What are your thoughts on Fortnite's Close Encounters fiasco? Part of this comes from the quality and polish of Epic's offering, but in other ways, PUBG only has itself to blame.

Epics free-to-play model for Fortnite is what helps the game win by getting it into hands of so many players. The trick is just to not get eliminated in the first minute of game play. However, while many may be going to the site, it turns out that it isn't really useful at all.

Of course, given the loose nature of this mode, Challenge progression and stats won't be tracked. Ghillie Crossing, this week's game mode, is is all about crossbows, ghillie suits and grenades. Exclusive content in the form of vehicles and a weapon are planned, which will include a "big fan request": the three-wheeled "Tukshai". That is very cool news for those of us waiting to hear more details. Jetpacks are also more plentiful, and you can grab those flying items and heavy shotguns from chests and supply drops. But Epic quickly took it down, saying it was investigating "issues" with the mode.

For his part, the Rockets fan - who identifies as " Houston Corey" on twitter - has denied Curry's accusations. Camargo stepped forward on Twitter, denying Ayesha's version of events. "Wish there was full footage".

Considering Fortnite has only been out on iOS since March 2018, these are huge numbers and a pretty incredible feat for Epic Games. At the event over $3 million in prize money will be up for grabs, a figure that's separate from the $100 million Epic Games announced earlier this week. The Apple App Store charts have had Fortnite at the top for a while now, which is also good news for Epic Games.

However, the Fortnite storm circle challenge walkthrough we've uncovered will hopefully make that a little easier for you. Are you excited for the Android release of Fortnite? SuperData Research, a games sales tracker, reports the mega-popular battle royale game managed to pull in $296 million just in April across mobile, console and PC platforms. Game companies want a share of the broad Fortnite audience, which is likely new to shooter games.
