“Due to an issue with Close Encounters, we’ve had to disable this LTM while we investigate,” Epic said.
According to the players who were able to get a hand on the mode, the main problem in the mode was availability non-shotgun ammo in this mode. Since this mode is a shotgun-only mode, therefore, availability of the non-shotgun ammo making the sense of mode wrong.
It is unclear that when will Fortnite Close Encounter mode will make its return to the game. Currently, it is replaced by the Solid Gold Mode V2.
