Fortnite Update Adds NFL Outfits, Team Terror Mode, Heavy Assault Rifle, and More
Fortnite has dropped its latest weekly update, and this one includes a rather surprising crossover with…the NFL? Yup, starting this Friday, Fortnite players will be able to purchase new skins based on the uniforms of all 32 NFL teams. The uniforms will be accompanied by a Limited-Time Mode, Blitz, which speeds up the usual battle royale action. Check out the new NFL threads below.
Of course, that’s not all – the update also includes the new Heavy Assault Rifle and Team Terror Limited Time Mode. Team Terror is a 32-on-32 PvPvE mode, that brings back the cube monsters from the Fortnitemares Halloween event. Speaking of which, Fortnitemares may be finished in Battle Royale, but the event continues in Fortnite Save the World.
Here are your notes for Fortnite patch 6.22:
Limited Time Mode: Team Terror
Monsters have invaded the Battle Royale island! Two teams will battle it out as Cube Monsters join the fight. Defeat the other team to earn a Victory Royale.
- Two teams of 32 players. Eliminate the other team to win.
- Monster spawners are scattered throughout the map and also appear each time the storm closes in to a new circle.
- Monsters can drop weapons or ammo when destroyed. Gold monsters and monster spawners drop Legendary items when destroyed.
- Farming resources increased 75% over default.
- Increased floor loot spawn likelihood by 15%.
- Floor loot spawns double ammo.
- Ammo boxes spawn triple ammo.
- Chests spawn double ammo & consumables.
- Supply drops spawn double ammo, and an extra consumable, resource drop and trap.
Limited Time Mode: Blitz!
Blitz is a faster-paced version of Battle Royale. The match begins with the storm moving towards the island, and the delay between each circle is shorter than normal, creating matches that are 15 minutes long or less. The map also has extra loot and resources. Profile Stats count in this mode, so fight hard for the Victory Royale!
- The storm is already moving in at the beginning of the match, choose your landing spot carefully!
- Wait time between storms is significantly shorter than usual; maximum match length is 15 minutes.
- Increased chances of treasure chests spawning from 50-70% to 80-90%.
- Increased chances of ammo boxes spawning from 65-80% to 85-95%.

- Resource harvesting amounts increased by 50%.
- Increased materials found on the ground from 20 to 60 per instance.
