Playlist - Placeholder - Fortnite.png

Playlists are game modes in Fortnite: Battle Royale that players can queue up for. Certain Playlists can define how the game is played such as 50v50, where there are 2 teams of 50. Playlists are divided into 2 Categories: Core Gamemodes and Limited Time Modes.

Core Gamemodes are Game Modes that will never rotate in and out (Live Events are exceptions to this) and maintain the Default Battle Royale gameplay. Limited Time Modes are playlists that will modify how the game is played.

Arena is a competitive gamemode in Fortnite: Battle Royale, that can be played in Solo, Duo, Trios or Squads. In this mode, you receive points called "Hype Points" for placement, or kills. They determine your League in Arena. Having a certain amount of points can enable you to compete in Cash Cups such as Contender Cash Cup. A lot of pros use this as practice for tournaments. There are many items that are in the main gamemode of Fortnite: Battle Royale, that is not in Arena.
