Fortnite Zero Build Game Modes Permanent

Fortnite Zero Build mode keeps the building out of the action for good

Put your blueprints away.

As part of the Chapter 3 Season 2 update for Fortnite, developer Epic Games trialed a radical gameplay redesign. For the last week, all building in Fortnite was disabled, forcing players to rely on movement and gunplay alone. Following a successful week of testing and feedback, Epic has opted to permanently introduce Zero Build variations of all core game modes in Fortnite.

That means Solos, Duos, Trios, and Squads can now all be enjoyed with building disabled. Of course, those who prefer traditional Fortnite will still have the option to play with building enabled. Just like before, all Zero Build game modes will include a recharging Overshield that provides some extra bulk. This is to make up for the fact those playing a Zero Build mode in Fortnite cannot deploy defensive structures.

 

The improvements to the movement that were introduced as part of last week’s update also remain. This update saw the introduction of a tactical sprint, mantling, and shoulder bashing. All of these new movements are usable in both Zero Build and regular playlists, although you cannot sprint and build at the same time.

A Resurgence?

Ever since its transition into a battle royale back in September 2017, Fortnite has been incredibly successful. It may no longer reach the insane heights of the 15 million concurrent players reached during the Galactus event. However, it does still regularly attract over 3 million concurrent players, which is a number most games could only dream of.

Even so, there is a consensus amongst many battle royale fans that Fortnite has a problem. And it’s that the building mechanics just aren’t for everyone. Some felt as though it got in the way of gunfights, and detracted more than it added. Thanks to the permanent addition of Zero Build modes, all Fortnite players can now enjoy Epic Games’ battle royale regardless of preference.
