— In-Game Description


Horde Rush is a Limited Time Mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale that released in Season 9. The mode was brought back in Chapter 2: Season 8 with alterations.

LTM Rules and Gameplay

Horde Rush is a Cooperative gamemode, similar to the Eliminate and Collect Mission present in Fortnite: Save the World. Players must work together to eliminate Cube Monsters, and complete three Encounters. Players win the mode by eliminating the Boss, The Caretaker.

Players fight in three encounters:

  • Players have 150 seconds to loot the area, and prepare for an attack. Monsters will spawn from Obelisks, and players complete the round by surviving.
  • Players must then follow the storm to a new location, fighting monsters all the way.
  • Players then have another 60 seconds to loot the area. Monsters again spawn from Obelisks, and players must eliminate a Cube Assassin. Players complete the round by surviving.
  • Players must then follow the storm again to a new location, fighting monsters all the way.
  • Players then have another 60 seconds to loot the area. Monsters again spawn from Obelisks, and players must eliminate a Caretaker. Players complete the round by eliminating the Boss, and winning the game.

As rounds increase, more enemies spawn, and different varieties too. The storm circle continuously shrinks as players stay alive.

Enemies

Enemies that spawn in round 2 will also spawn as the storm begins to move after the end of the first round. All of the enemies, bar the Cube Assassin and Caretaker will drop Cube Monster parts. All enemies bar the Caretaker will drop various loot on elimination.

History

Season 9

Chapter 2: Season 8

  • Update v18.20: Horde Rush returns.
    • New Loot Pool.
    • New Enemies.
    • New Final Boss.

Trivia

  • Chest spawns appear to be at 100% in this mode.
  • The reason why the Loot Pool is full of seemingly random items, is likely because it was not altered significantly since its introduction in Season 9, hence the Drum Shotgun and Boom Bow.
