Bugha’s End Game: How to play the new Late Game Arena Mode

Jump into Bugha’s End Game and see what competitive Fortnite is all about.

Fortnite World Cup Champion Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf has revived the beloved Late Game Arena mode. After several unsuccessful attempts by Epic Games, Bugha, Dignitas, and Creators Corp brought life to Bugha’s End Game using Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). 

This brilliant take on Late Game Arena gives players six custom-designed maps based on classic Fortnite drop spots. It’s about as close as possible to a genuine end game. 

Bugha’s End Game: The spiritual successor to Late Game Arena

Bugha is partially responsible for one of the best game modes in Fortnite history. Late Game Arena debuted in July 2019 alongside the release of the Fortnite star’s Icon Series set

This new game mode simulated Fortnite end games with realistic loadouts and randomized spots. Furthermore, Late Game Arena possessed a separate hype leaderboard, in-game tournaments, and more. 

It was an instant hit and a game mode everyone hoped would stay. After vaulting Late Game Arena in Chapter 2 Season 7, Epic Games revived it three times, but it never felt the same.

Enter Bugha and Dignitas—the esports organization he competes under. The two teamed up with Creators Corp to design Bugha's End Game, a serious take on Fortnite end games.

The map is now available to all players. You can play Bugha’s End Game by launching Fortnite and entering Island Code 4294-2523-7409, as shown above.
