Fortnite’s 50v50 mode is currently back and pits 50 players against another 50 enemies, but sometimes the true enemies are the teammates right beside you.
In 50v50, teammates share everything: anything you build can be edited by anyone on your team and, any friendly player can revive you when you go down. The problem is that any and all loot is up for grabs by anyone who spots it, including loot that you drop when you meet an early death.
This has led to cruel players purposely letting you succumb to death so they can pick up all the weapons and materials you’ve collected. Some even go so far as to build around you to make sure other players don’t heal you. Others use building to interrupt kindhearted players and stop them from reviving a partner. Just because you’re far from the other enemy team doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry when building up to use a launch pad. Evil teammates will shoot down your tall ramp themselves, sending you plummeting to your demise.
It doesn’t end there. Even though supply drops appear in great numbers, supposed allies will head for the supply drop you’ve shot down and steal every last piece of loot, leaving you with nothing. Other ruthless teammates will wait for you to open a chest or purchase an item from a vending machine only for them to snatch the contents up the moment they get the chance.
Some players have suggested workarounds to help eliminate toxicity once a third version of 50v50 eventually rolls around. Reddit user Dumberjack suggested using challenges to incentive people to revive players, while BewareofBibz thinks leaving a grave stone after you die that only enemies can loot can help dissuade greedy players.
