Fortnite Presents High Stakes

Fortnite Presents High Stakes

The Getaway Limited Time Mode (aka High Stakes) is a limited event in Fortnite: Battle Royale where players can complete challenges to unlock free Cosmetic item rewards.

Four safes have been loaded into Supply Drops scattered around the island, each carrying a large jewel. Players and their teams must locate a safe, pick up the prize inside, and getaway with the goods while battling enemies. The first four teams to make their way to a van with a jewel and getaway win.

  • 12 red "Pursuit" Supply Drops land at the very beginning of the match. These carry a variety of longer-range weapons and other items, and are the only way to obtain the new Grappler in this mode.
  • Resource harvesting amounts increased by 50%.
  • Only Rare weapons or higher will be found in this mode.
  • Rifts, Rift-To-Go and Launchpads have been removed to reduce mobility for Getaway Van engagements.
  • Profile Stats (K/D & Wins) are tracked in this mode, but Umbrellas are not awarded for wins.

Jewels

  • Jewels can be found in special supply drop safes, located along the edge of the first storm circle. The safes take a long time to open, so make sure the area is clear before attempting to claim a Jewel.
  • Four Jewels will be in play on the map at all times. If a player escapes with a Jewel or one is lost in the storm, a new supply drop will bring a replacement.
  • When a Jewel is picked up, it will be visible on the map to everyone for 30 seconds.
  • Carrying a Jewel will give players health & shields over time, but also slow them down by 10%.

Getaway Vans

  • Four total Getaway Vans will be in the map: three that arrive early in the match and one more that shows up near the end.
  • Getaway Vans float in mid-air. Jewel carriers must build up and then interact with them in order to complete a Getaway.
  • The goal is to find or steal a Jewel and take it to one of the vans in order to secure a Victory Royale.
  • Once they arrive, safe drops and Getaway Vans will be visible on the map at all times.
