Fortnite Zero Build mode removes building for keeps

Fancy an ol' school shootout?

Fortnite Zero Build mode is just that: all shooting and no building.

“Zero Build is a pure test of weapon, item, and traversal ability,” Epic Games said about the new mode. “Zero Build can be found in the Discover page as Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads playlists. (Access the Discover page by clicking on the “CHANGE” button above “PLAY!” in the Lobby.)”

With building removed from play, Epic advised that players need to be focused on recharging their overshields as a first line of defense. Ascenders and mantling still exist in the mode, so players can use existing cover when in a pinch.

Are you keen for a lack of building within Fortnite? Why or why not?

Fortnite is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and Switch.
