Exciting News: Fortnite Introduces Ranked Play to Battle Royale and Zero Build in Upcoming V24.40 Patch

Gear up, Fortnite enthusiasts! The highly anticipated arrival of Fortnite Ranked Play in Battle Royale and Zero Build modes is just around the corner, with the upcoming V24.30 patch set to make its debut on May 16, 2023.

Exciting news was shared by the Fortnite Team, divulging the intricate details of the much-awaited Fortnite Ranked experience. Brace yourselves for intense global competition as players go head-to-head, vying for prestigious ranks such as Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Elite, Champion, and the ultimate achievement, Unreal. The ranks are divided into three tiers for Bronze through Diamond, while Elite, Champion, and Unreal each boast a single rank. The inaugural season, aptly named Ranked Season Zero, will span Battle Royale Chapter 4 Season 3, captivating players until the very end.

Ranked Season Zero promises an exhilarating journey, with initial ranks determined by a combination of past match performance and performance in the first Ranked Battle Royale and Ranked Zero Build encounters. For easy reference, players can conveniently view their current rank on the left side of the screen by toggling the “Ranked” setting to “On.” A dynamic progress bar accompanies the rank, showcasing proximity to rank advancement or potential demotion. This bar’s movement hinges on match placement and the number of eliminations achieved, with eliminations towards the latter part of a match carrying greater weight. Additionally, the ranks of eliminated players are factored into the equation.

For those engaging in team play, progress is determined collectively based on team eliminations and placement, calculated at the conclusion of a match. It’s worth noting that a team’s rank will align with the player possessing the highest rank at the start of the match, adding a thrilling element of competition to the mix.

A notable distinction awaits players who ascend to the coveted Unreal rank. Once achieved, Unreal rank will persist throughout the season, showcasing their prowess, regardless of subsequent performance. This exclusive opportunity enables them to further solidify their position as the cream of the crop. When the highly anticipated V24.40 update arrives, Ranked support will encompass Battle Royale’s Solo, Duos, and Squads modes, as well as Zero Build’s Duos mode. Separate ranks will be established for both Battle Royale and Zero Build, ensuring a fair and balanced competitive environment.

Wondering how to partake in the exhilarating realm of Fortnite Ranked? Newcomers will need to outlast 500 opponents, providing them with ample time to familiarize themselves with the intricacies of the game. Engaging in Ranked matches also presents the opportunity to earn in-game seasonal cosmetic rewards, obtained by completing Ranked Urgent Quests. Each match brings forth a fresh Ranked Urgent Quest, although progress from previous quests does not carry over. The ultimate cosmetic reward for Ranked Season Zero is the Burn Bright Emote, serving as a stylish testament to your current rank, sure to impress fellow players during gameplay.

With the introduction of Ranked, the Arena mode will gracefully bid adieu. Moreover, your rank in the forthcoming Battle Royale Season will play a pivotal role in determining your eligibility for thrilling Epic-hosted tournaments, adding an extra layer of excitement to your competitive journey.

Fortnite’s V24.40 update won’t merely usher in Ranked Play, but also a series of balancing adjustments that will reverberate throughout the Ranked experience. Material caps will be reduced from 999 to 500, ensuring a strategic approach to resource management. Harvesting rates will receive a welcome boost, empowering players to gather resources more efficiently. Additionally, a new penalty system will be implemented, deducting 50 units of each material upon elimination, providing a fresh tactical dimension to gameplay.
