Another brand-new Limited Time Mode has been added to Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Barebones is the latest LTM, replacing the Siphon mode that was introduced yesterday. “This mode has the map, compass, storm timer, and many other elements of the Heads Up Display turned off,” the in-game description reads. “Determining who is friendly and who isn’t during firefights and staying away from the storm will be key to picking up a Victory Royale.”

For Call of Duty fans, Barebones essentially sounds like a version of the Hardcore multiplayer playlist, which also removes elements of the HUD.

In Barebones, the limited HUD removes the mini-map, game time, player count, and building instructions—but you can still see your health, resources, inventory, and ammo capacities. You’ll want to constantly stay on the run, though, because it’s pretty difficult to keep track of the storm and where you need to go to avoid being eliminated.

Team Terror is another LTM that’s now available in Fortnite. The mode was originally introduced on Nov. 6 in Patch 6.22, and it features two teams battling against one another while also fighting off Cube Monsters.

Epic Games continues to cycle out LTMs for Fortnite fans each day during the holiday season—so you should go enjoy Barebones before it’s removed and replaced tomorrow.
