The Getaway returns to Fortnite Battle Royale with new rewards

With Week 3 of the latest Fortnite season starting, it’s not only the brand new weekly challenges that will be keeping gamers busy. The Getaway, the popular limited time game mode from Season 5 has returned to Fortnite: Battle Royale and it has brought some new exclusive rewards with it including the highly requested, Crystal Llama Back Bling for players.

The limited time mode has also seen the return of the Wild Card skin, which has multiple customizable styles itself. The skin will be available in the Item Shop for a limited time at a price of 2000 v-Bucks.

For those that didn’t get a chance to play the limited time mode, The Getaway is a heist-themed game mode where players are put in squads and tasked with collecting a Jewel (the Crystal Llama) from four safes that are placed on the map (they will be marked on the map after the bus passes through). Once a player has collected the Jewel, they will need to safely navigate the map and get to one of the getaway vans located on the map (also marked on the map and usually in the centre of the map).

Whilst it may seem easy, the player carrying the Jewel will only be able to run at a slower pace, although they will be given health and shield over time whilst carrying the Jewel. And once you finally arrive at a van, you’ll have to go through the trouble of trying to build up to it whilst trying to not get shot at by other squads who will know exactly where you are as all Jewels are marked on the map. As long as you make it to the van (you will need to interact with it, don’t make the mistake of just jumping on it), you will be victorious although victory Umbrellas are not awarded for wins as each game does potentially have 4 winners.

The returning challenges, along with new challenges, will mean that Fortnite players that weren’t able to complete the challenges or are new to the game will be able to earn the same rewards that were previously available. However, gamers that have previously completed the challenges from when it was available in Season 5 won’t need to complete the old challenges as they would have already unlocked the spray, contrail and crowbar pickaxe.

The updated High Stakes challenges include:
  • Complete The Getaway challenges (2) – Rare Crowbar Pickaxe
  • Win a match of The Getaway – Rare Crystal Llama Back Bling
  • Win matches of The Getaway (3) – Rare Ruby Crystal Llama Back Bling
  • Win matches of The Getaway (5) – Rare Diamond Crystal Llama Back Bling
  • Use a Grappler in different matches of The Getaway – The Getaway loading screen
  • Deal damage to Jewel carrying opponents (200) – Uncommon Suited Up spray
  • Pick up a Jewel in different matches of The Getaway (3) – Rare Cashflow Contrail
The High Stakes challenges will be available in game until Tuesday, March 19th at 9 AM ET so make sure to complete them as soon as possible.
