Even though Fortnite’s Zero Build proved to be a success among players, the team over at Epic Games made the decision to bring building back into the battle royale title.

Following the release of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, building mechanics were taken out of the game, rendering players unable to create structures, which has been the core gameplay mechanic for the title since the very beginning. Some fans may consider the move to be a bold one; however, doing so has increased the title’s popularity and brought back players new and old.

With the option to build removed, new mechanics such as an overshield have been added in order to ensure that competitors don’t get eliminated easily in a firefight. With the new building changes in Fortnite, new methods of traversing the map, such as sprinting and mantling, must be utilized in order to succeed in the Zero Build Mode. Players no longer have to worry about building and editing skills when engaged in a fight as everyone is now put on a somewhat even playing field.

While the removal of building in Fortnite proved to be beneficial overall to the game, there were some fans who were disappointed as they felt that it was what made Fortnite feel like Fortnite. Two weeks after its disappearance, building was brought back into the game alongside a tweet from Fortnite Games encouraging players to “Play Your Way!” On the game’s Twitter page, many players expressed their feelings toward the two modes causing a discussion about which one was better than the other.

One of the arguments that frequently appeared was that the Zero Build Mode made Fortnite boring and took away what made Fortnite different from every other battle royale game. To some extent, this can be true as building structures proved to be a staple to the title which contributed to its initial popularity. In a way, to some, the game can be considered to be another generic battle royale game.

In regards to similarity, the overshield resembles games such as Apex Legends or Call of Duty Warzone along with the sprinting, and mantle mechanics. With building out of the way a certain meta was also created in regards to what weapons to use against other players. Due to this, items such as snipers were nerfed in Fortnite in order to create a balance in gameplay.

Regardless of what stance players have on Mode, having building as an option proves to be a beneficial choice for Fortnite. Not only does it give players variety in what type of gameplay experience they desire, but it also ensures at the end of the day everything is fair, while at the same time keeping the title’s charm. Since Fortnite is a game that is constantly full of surprises and changes, there’s no telling what bold move the game will make next.
