How to play Horde Rush in Fortnite 

In Horde Rush, you and up the three other players must survive an onslaught of Cube Monsters. Along the way, you will traverse an eerie map, fending off new locations, until eventually you come face-to-face with the Final Boss. Don't forget to scavenge the surrounding area for useful loot, including score multipliers that'll help you set new high scores and climb the leaderboard!

To play this returning LTM, navigate to Discover and find Horde Rush under by Epic. Since Horde Rush is an LTM, there is no Island Code to input.
