Fortnite’s Creative mode supplies an outlet for content creators to generate unique experiences unavailable in the battle royale mode. One of these unique experiences is Gun Game.
Popularized through the Call of Duty franchise, Gun Game drops players into a location alongside each other much like Deathmatch. But as you secure kills in Gun Game, your weapon cycles each time. The randomness of not knowing which weapon you’ll be stuck with next and having to adapt to survive is what makes this game mode so enjoyable to play with friends.
Fortunately, the Fortnite community has no shortage of ideas regarding crafting custom maps, and there are plenty of Gun Game maps from which to choose. Each Gun Game map boasts its own unique quirks and inspirations.
Here are some of the best Gun Game maps in Fortnite.
Island code: 4804-9489-3873
Shipment, the classic Call of Duty map, has been crafted once again in Fortnite, creating a familiar setting for players to compete. The creator Benz4ducks did an excellent job at getting the map as close to its source material as possible. For those who have played the original game, this will bring up nostalgia.
The weapon choice in this map is based on assault-style guns. The pool may be small, but if you’re a Call of Duty fan, this is the map for you.
Lost City of Atlantis
Island code: 8303-4786-2270
The Lost City of Atlantis is one of the most extensive creations for the Gun Game mode. As the name suggests, players are placed underwater in the Lost City of Atlantis, where they have the ability to traverse the large castle structures as they compete. This map can host up to 16 players and has more than adequate space for a big party.
Island code: 5629-2012-5925
No one could forget the classic Tilted Towers location from Fortnite’s original map. For newer players, here is your first chance to experience it in all its glory. This small town is the perfect place to host a Gun Game match since it can host as many players as needed.
The kill limit is set to 20, and along with the vintage map, there are vintage weapons enabled. For players who want something more familiar, this is an excellent map choice.
Island code: 3035-2351-8098
One map that serves as the complete opposite of Tilted Towers is the Fable Fantasy map for Gun Game. Boasting a large cityscape set in the Middle Ages, as well as a perfectly sculpted dragon breathing fire overhead, RealJacuzzi outdid himself with this creation. RealJacuzzi created this map for Team Deathmatch and Gun Game, meaning there is plenty of space for large parties.
Island code: 8898-3477-5316
This Gun Game map is as simple as it sounds. The match takes place entirely on a Yacht, similar to the Hijacked map, in the middle of the ocean and grants players limited hiding space throughout the onboard rooms.
Given its small form factor and ability to host up to 16 players, Yacht can quickly become one of the most chaotic experiences in Fortnite. The rest of the rules are the standard: first to 30 kills and each kill nets you a new weapon. For fast-paced action, Yacht is one of the best options available.
Island code: 7651-9778-5543
The Gulag takes Fortnite players into the iconic battle royale location from Call of Duty: Warzone. This small shower block has been slightly modified to use objects from Fortnite, but the core elements are all there, including its small form factor. While you can play this map with 16 players, it may be too many to have an enjoyable experience, so we recommend limiting your party size to 10.
Island code: 8231-7685-1483
More unique in construction, Gamerz’s Aquarium is a Gun Game map that gives players the ability to navigate tight corners and hide within the aquatic displays. On this map, nowhere is safe, and players must always be aware of their surroundings. This map is a great one to try out if you’re looking for a unique and sometimes more strategic experience.
Island code: 1542-7138-3962
Rift Jumpers introduces the Rift-hopping mechanic from the main game to allow players to move between land and ocean. This option is on hand throughout the whole match, meaning players can instantly move between the cover of the land to the low gravity of water at will to hide or set up kills.
Outside of the Rift feature, the map functions similarly to other maps with a 16-player limit and 20 kill limit. Rift Jumpers is one of the most unique experiences currently available for Gun Game.
Gun Game Quest
Island code: 8402-5347-6470
Gun Game Quest works a little differently than other Gun Game modes. Instead of leveling through different weapons, each player’s elimination will give a higher rarity in whatever gun they got the kills with. This spin on the classic Gun Game formula ensures players can stick to weapons they like.
Zoo Gun Game
Island code: 8169-7821-3985
The Zoo Gun Game map is another unique take on the Gun Game mode. Each player is put into the zoo to fight through the map as different animal classes. Each class has its loadout and special abilities that players need to learn to progress through the gun roster.
Time Twist Gun Game
Island code: 5918-7034-6151
The Time Twist match allows the player to travel through time and space by teleporting the player to different universes. Players will take on this Gun Game, and other modes using this map, as they travel through different dimensions and rank up their weapons.
OG Junk Junction
Island code: 7398-2853-2137
This map is a blast from the past for fans of the Junk Junction POI on the Chapter One map. Those who know will remember how good this location is for close-quarters combat, making it perfect for any Gun Game. The map has been updated recently to handle Chapter Three’s mechanics and parkour.
Island code: 5918-7034-6151
This map comes from Chapter Two, when the game had its first crossover with Borderlands. Fans of Borderlands will love this faithful recreation of one of the classic scrap villages from the game.
Gun Game: Mars
Island code: 3246-2759-9251
If you want to take a look into what humanity will do on Mars, look no further than this Gun Game. This level features a rocky red surface and minor buildings that resemble an early space-faring civilization. Players will fight through the gun’s roster while hiding among the red rocks and buildings.
Blizzard Gun Game
Island code: 3180-1388-3421
This map allows gun game players to get up close and personal in this icy fortress. While players cycle through the different weapons, they will occasionally be hit by a blizzard. This will make the screen hazy and it will be hard to see enemies. You can earn extra experience on this level by picking up health packs when you’re low.
Steam Sewer: Gun Game
Island code: 0148-3488-0077
Fortnite‘s Steam Sewer: Gun Game is a showdown in the deepest pits the underground system. Players will have to maneuver around the many pipes in the giant caves that make up the sewer, running through all the guns in the game. The first player to get 30 kills through the cycling guns will be the winner.
