Everything You Need to Know About the New “Reload” Mode in Fortnite

After a ton of hate this season, Epic has finally given fans what they want with the new “Reload mode.” This season has been rough all around, with the Mad Max collaboration not going as planned. While the main mode still remains the core mode of Fortnite, this new mode is the real hype of the season so far. The OG map returns, giving us a glimpse of what is to come for the next season as well. Keep reading to learn everything about the new Reload update and how to win this new mode.

Relolad Mode – How It Works

When eliminated in Fortnite Reload, a reboot timer starts at 40 seconds. Players must wait 40 seconds to respawn, provided at least one teammate remains alive. If the entire team is eliminated, respawning is no longer possible. Actions performed by teammates can reduce this timer. For instance:

  • A downed enemy reduces the timer by 2 seconds.
  • An elimination reduces it by 4 seconds.
  • Squad wipes, or eliminating the last member of a team, reduce it by 10 seconds.

Players can choose to bleed out immediately after being knocked down to start the timer sooner, which might be beneficial in certain situations where revival by teammates is unlikely.

Endgame Mechanics

In the later stages of the game, rebooting is disabled, and players must revert to traditional Battle Royale rules. The zone becomes smaller, and the last remaining team wins.

Respawn Mechanics

When respawning, players return with a gray AR and dive down from the sky to a chosen landing spot. It’s important to note that glider locks occur at a lower altitude compared to traditional Battle Royale, so adjusting landing strategies is crucial.

Looting and Vending Machines

Fortnite Reload features a 100% chest spawn rate, ensuring that chests always appear in their designated spots. Additionally, the game mode includes vending machines, currently offering healing items exclusively. Supply drops appear periodically, often providing valuable items like Porta Bunkers, shield bubbles, heals, and mobility tools. There are also three llamas per match, supplying ammo, heals, and mobility.

Weapon Pool – Reload Mode

The weapon pool in Fortnite Reload is a mix of Chapter 1, 2, and 3 weapons:

  • Assault Rifles: Regular AR, heavy AR, infantry rifle, and hammer AR.
  • Shotguns: Pump shotgun, tactical shotgun, lever-action shotgun, Chapter 1 heavy shotgun, and ranger shotgun.
  • SMGs: Regular SMG, tactical SMG, and Stinger SMG.
  • Pistols: Regular pistol and revolver.
  • Mobility Items: Grapple glove, OG grappler, and shockwaves.
  • Cover Items: Porta Bunkers and shield bubbles.

The map contains a small chance of finding Mythic weapons from Fortnite’s past, though these are rare and obtained through looting rather than set locations.

Map and Points of Interest (POIs)

The map consists of old POIs from Chapter 1 and 2, rearranged into a new layout. Key POIs include:

  • Tilted Towers
  • Pleasant Park
  • Retail Row
  • Motel from Chapter 1
  • Lonely Lodge
  • Snobby Shores
  • Dirty Docks from Chapter 2

The small map, designed for 40 players per match, encourages constant fighting and fast-paced gameplay.

Crown Wins and Gameplay

Crown wins count in this game mode. Players start with a crown if they have one and can lose or gain crowns as usual. Matches are shorter than traditional Battle Royale games but involve continuous action due to the respawn mechanics.
