Fortnite Zero Build is a no-build Battle Royale mode that’s here to stay


Fortnite Zero Build is a new no-build Battle Royale mode that’s here to stay following the start of Chapter 3, Season 2: Resistance which saw building temporarily removed from the main game for a short time.

As detailed by The Fortnite Team, Zero Build arrives as building returns to the main Battle Royale mode and can be found on the Discover page as Solos, Duos, Trios, and Squads playlists. As the team notes, “You can access the Discover page by clicking the ‘CHANGE’ button above ‘PLAY!’ in the lobby.”

Just like in the main game, all players will have access to a cooldown Overshield which will help compensate for the lack of cover the building would usually provide. Without building, you’ll need to “show off your sharp shooting, sharp thinking, and keen sense of space as you go full-throttle into battle.”

Building has been gone since the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, but it seems to be returning today for those who prefer a more traditional Fortnite experience. Luckily for those who have been waiting for this new way to play for a while, the no-build experience will remain.

Alongside the launch of the new season, Epic Games announced that it will donate all of its profits from Fortnite to humanitarian aid for those affected by war in Ukraine for a period of two weeks. As of March 25, donations totaled $70 million.
