Nothing is off limits in the first major Fortnite event of 2020, Love and War. This community-made Search and Destroy limited time event brings new outfits, challenges, and weapons to the game.
All is fair…
In Love and War, two teams of six players will take turns attacking and then defending their area of the map. The first team to reach four wins takes the match, with a cap of seven rounds. Attackers must team up to destroy the bomb or eliminate the enemy team to win, while defenders have to protect their bombsite at all costs.
Players online are comparing the event to Counter-Strike, so those familiar with the classic shooter will have a little advantage over other players.
Players will earn gold by finishing a round, killing enemies, and completing objectives. The gold can then be used to purchase weapons, shields, and more building material. Gold will carry between rounds but resets once players switch sides.
Along with the new game mode, Fortnite will have new cosmetics to unlock and purchase during the event. Players can expect to get a free pickaxe called the Twilight Strikers, a skateboard style, emotes, and more. Players also have the opportunity to earn 60,000 XP for completing their challenges. The full list of challenges are available before the event launches, courtesy of data miner FortTory:
