Classic Battle Royale with three-person squads.
— In-Game Description

Trios is a game mode in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced as a core mode in Chapter 2: Season 5. It had previously existed as a Limited Time Mode.


Trios uses the standard set of rules, meaning there are 100 players who all compete to obtain a Victory Royale. What sets trios apart from other modes is that the player has up to two other squad members to fight alongside.


Trios follows the basic rule-set of Battle Royale:

  • 100 Players, all of which drop from the Battle Bus.
  • Squads enabled, up to a maximum of 3 players in each.
  • Standard Loot Pool.
  • Standard Gravity.
  • Standard HP rules.
  • Respawns are disabled.
  • Glider Redeploy is disabled.
  • Reboot Vans are enabled.
  • Skill Based Matchmaking is enabled.
  • Characters and Bars are enabled.
  • Regular Storm Circle intervals.
  • Players go into a downed-but-not-out state when they lose all their HP.


  • Since Trios works on the basis of teams of three, oftentimes lobbies will be lacking in one player, as 3 is not divisible by the 100 player count.
    • 100 player games are possible, but it means there will not be a lobby full of 3 player squads.
