The new Fortnite Impossible Escape LTM is live, but it can be a little confusing at first. Here is how players can secure an Escape Royale in the new Impossible Escape LTM.
Similar to previous major limited-time modes, the Impossible Escape LTM departs from the normal Battle Royale style gameplay. Instead, players must survive on the island with a limited loot pool and cap on materials. Going at it alone or finding a squad along the way, players have one mission… escape the island.
However, Fortnite doesn’t necessarily tell the players how they are supposed to escape The Island. Sure, players are instructed to find parts for a helicopter, but with only 30 minutes to do so there isn’t enough time to blindly search for them. This guide will show players how to play and win the Fortnite Daybreak LTM.
Escaping Fortnite’s Impossible Escape LTM
The map above shows somewhat players can expect when dropping into a round of Impossible Escape. The map will be covered in a fog of war until a player either explores that region or visits one of the Guardian towers. The towers are marked by golden binoculars on the map.
Players will want to visit one of these towers first to reveal the location of nearby objects. The golden speech bubbles show the location of NPCs that will give players Impossible Escape quests which can be completed to reveal the location of helicopter parts. Players may also see golden claw symbols which indicate a rare item that can be turned into an NPC to reveal helicopter part locations.
A lot of this mode’s mechanics can be ignored as the only main objective is to gather four missing parts for one of the helicopters. These parts can be located by removing the fog of war which removes the need for NPCs. However, if a player doesn’t feel like visiting towers, they can hunt down NPC quests instead.
The helicopter parts are indicated on the map by blue icons. There are the motor, engine, top blades, and tail blades. There are multiple of each part around the map, but a single helicopter only needs one of each. This is where players will need to coordinate with their squad so that two squad members don’t go get the same part.
To squad up, players will have to find other players wandering around the map. They will then need to emote and high-five one another. Up to four people can be in a squad. In PvE, players can attack one another. But in PvP, you’ll need to be careful who you choose to trust.
Once all of the parts are collected, the squad will need to hop into the helicopter and fly to a designated escape zone. Helicopters are low on fuel so they may need to make a pit stop. Once the zone is reached, players will be greeted with an Escape Royale screen. That’s how players can win the Fortnite Impossible Escape LTM.
