Some of the game files in the Fortnite patch 9.20 refer to two new LTMs coming to Fortnite. One will be a horde mode and the other will be a prop hunt.
We've seen a ton of leaks come out of the Fortnite v9.20 patch. We've already covered the largest number of cosmetic leaks in recent memory, along with some information surrounding the Season 9 monster event.
There were some LTM challenges and information in the game files as well, which points to horde mode and prop hunt game modes coming in the near future.

We'll start with Horde Rush since this is the LTM that has the most amount of information. This is probably the first LTM we'll see out of the two, as well.
As the name suggests, this looks to be a horde mode game, similar to the Save the World game mode that preceded Fortnite Battle Royale.
The event will also feature some challenges for new cosmetic items. The challenges are listed as offering XP rewards right now, but that may change when we get closer to the event.

I know how much everyone loves zombies in Fortnite. Thankfully, this time they will be relegated to an LTM.

Also the "MissionGen" file for it has the name "Puppy Hugs" with description "Hug your neighbor", probably something thats overridden
Prop hunt game modes are always fun. For anyone who hasn't played them, they work a bit like hide and seek.
One team plays as the props, and the other team is the hunters. The prop team can morph into different items and move around the map. The hunters need to find them before the time runs out.
The concept is simple and the game mode doesn't have a ton of staying power, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out in Fortnite.
