As the end of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 draws near, there have been a lot of leaks and rumors about what will change and be added to the game. Most of the leaks are about the upcoming Battle Pass, but a few point to new game modes and improved weapons.
The popular 50v50 Limited Time Mode (LTM) will be back in Chapter 3, according to a recent Twitter leak. Since 2019, players haven’t been able to play the popular game mode. The LTM is said to be coming back, but players will get a new format called Big Battle – Zero Build.
50v50 is set to return soon and it's marked as a DEFAULT mode with the name "Big Battle – Zero Build" but it's only 40v40 this time.

50v50 is a Limited Time Mode (LTM) in Fortnite Battle Royale where two teams of 50 players each fight to win. The structure is a bit like the Team Rumble mode.
Since Chapter 3 came out, there have been a lot of rumors about the LTM coming back, but none of them have come true. Players still look forward to the mode’s eventual return, though.
According to sources, 50v50 LTM will return to Fortnite in a new format.
The well-known Fortnite dataminer and leaker HYPEX recently tweeted details on the impending 50v50 LTM. He said that the well-liked LTM will make a comeback in the game in an enhanced version.
Players will receive a 40v40 LTM this time. The other aspects of the game mode will not change even if the lobby capacity will be reduced. Additionally, the LTM will be using the most recent version of Skill-based Matchmaking (SBMM). The storm will do more damage than before and players won’t be able to respawn. Additionally, the matches will be shorter than the first LTMs in length. The original tactical shotgun, a burst AR, and limited health and shield supplies will be given to players when they land on the island.
Gameplay and regulations for 50v50 LTM
Both teams (50 players) enter the contest simultaneously. Battle buses adhere to a blue path line.
A combat line with dots separates the enemy zone from the ally zone. Crossing this line increases the likelihood of encountering an adversary.
The players have ten minutes to collect treasure and supplies. They have five minutes to battle, followed by an additional five minutes as the storm approaches.
Every two minutes, supply drops occur in groups of three to six and occur every two minutes.
At the conclusion of the match, the victorious team is the one with the most eliminations.
