Our Fortnite Wild West LTM guide contains all the details on this new limited time mode.

It’s certainly been a cowboy filled couple of months, and now Fortnite’s gone all Wild Western too.

Wild West is Fortnite’s latest LTM and on the surface it functions just the same as a traditional game of Fortnite. The circle closes in, you parachute down, you crack open chests and you fight to be the last person standing. However, there’s one key difference - the entire weapon and item pool has been limited. You’ll only be able to use what gunslingers of old used (probably).

Below we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about this LTM:

Wild West LTM: Overview

First off, this is a traditional game of Fortnite when it comes to the fundamentals. It’s just your usual game of Fortnite: Battle Royale, with a weapon and item limitation as the one - and only - twist.

Here’s a breakdown of all the weapons and items available in Wild West:

Available Weapons

  • Hunting Rifle
  • Pump Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • Six Shooter

Available Items

  • Campfire
  • Bandages
  • Medical Kits
  • Dynamite
  • Slurp Juice

Supply Drops can contain

  • Epic Six Shooters
  • Legendary Double Barrel Shotguns and Miniguns
  • Slurp Juice

Do give this video by MonsterDface a watch as it showcases this new Wild West mode in all its glory.

A brand new grenade was also introduced to Fortnite along with this LTM - Dynamite. It's easily one of the most powerful grenades in the game, with an enormous blast radius that'll shatter buildings in one fell swoop. While it's super-powerful, there are some drawbacks though. It's got a long fuse time and you won't be able to throw it as far as a normal grenade, which means you'll have to think things through before you chuck it.
