Epic Games have added a new Impossible Escape LTM to Fortnite where players can earn the Escapist Umbrella as the new glider. Although Epic Games give plenty of opportunities to earn rewards in Fortnite, free gliders are rarely handed out. However, players need to beat the new game mode in order to get their hands on the Escapist Umbrella.

How to Unlock the Escapist Umbrella in Fortnite
The Escapist Umbrella is the reward for finishing the PvP mode of the Impossible Escape LTM. As the name suggests, the task is to simply escape the island. Every player queueing up for the Impossible Escape LTM will be dropped on the island in a random fashion. Players that are in a squad will be spawned separately and will have to find a way to each other.
Once you are in the game, you will be tasked with finding the Huntmaster on the map. The Huntmaster will ask you to bring a Raptorclaw that can be acquired by killing raptors. After handing the Raptorclaw to the Huntmaster, he will ask you to get helicopter parts from four different marked locations on the map. These locations are not fixed and will be different for each player or team. Although there is no hidden puzzle or boss fight you have to go through in order to get the parts, there are other difficulties on the map. There will be several NPCs and wild animals that will prevent you from escaping the island, so stay on your toes.
Gather all the four parts and bring them to the helicopter. Use the helicopter to escape the island and get Escapist Umbrella as a completion reward. Players should note that the Escapist Umbrella can only be earned by completing the PvP version of the game mode. There is also a PvE version that will reward players with a new loading screen. The game mode will last until May 25, so players only have a week to get the free reward.
