Fortnite High Stakes is All about Heists

Fortnite’s new update is out and comes with an extremely cool game mode. Fans of the Grand Theft Auto series and Payday series will be quite happy with this new game mode that has been called “Getaway”.

This new update is the start of the High Stakes event which features a new limited time game mode, new challenges, and new skins. The new LTM titled Getaway divides players into teams of four. The teams have to find one of the four safes that are scattered across the island and must then steal the Llama Jewel inside them. After they steal it they must make their getaway by reaching the getaway van. This has to be done while you fend off the enemy teams so all the members of your team will have to be at their best if they want to want to pull off this heist. The High Sakes challenges are tied to this mode and are as follows:

  • Play matches of The Getaway (10) — 5,000 XP
  • Deal damage to Jewel-carrying opponents (500) — Suited Up spray
  • Pick up a Jewel in different matches of The Getaway (5) — Cash Flow skydiving trail cosmetic

The two new skins introduced are titles The Ace and is part of The Ace Pack which replaces the Wingman Starter Pack. The other new skin is titled The Wild Card and is based on the look of classic Bank Heisters. The Wild Card wears tailored white suits with black gloves and a black tie. The mask is customizable and is themed after the different suits of playing cards.

There’s also a new tool that allows you to traverse the world. It’s called The Grappler and allows you to grapple walls to launch yourself, like in the Just Cause series. What are you most excited about in this new update, let us know down below.
