In Fortnite, each mission now has different modifiers that are applied to the map when playing. You can see what they are on the left hand side of the map screen, when selecting missions. Sometimes they are a buff to the player, a specific class, traps or a general one. Similarly, enemies get modifiers that either buff them or hinder the player. Below is a list of modifiers that have been added to the game. Each of the 3 tables can be sorted by clicking on the headings.

Which one is your favourite? Have I goofed missed one? Let me know in the comments below!
