The recent release of Fortnite C3:S2 saw what may have been the most disruptive change to the game yet: the removal of building. While common wisdom and datamines suggested that Fortnite‘s no building mode wouldn’t permanently take over the main game (and would last for roughly 9 days), a more recent datamine from Fortnite dataminer TweaBR suggests that there will be an option to continue playing in No Building Mode in Solo, Duos, Trios and Squads even after building returns to the game.
The 'No Builds' LTM that will be available after 8 days will be called 'Solo – No Build Battle Royale'.

According to TweaBR, the mode will be called “Solo – No Build Battle Royale,” per the datamined visual of the menu item in the game’s UI.
Could the decision by Epic Games to make Fortnite‘s no building mode a permanent one stem from the surprisingly positive response, with popular Fortnite streamers like Ninja claiming that No Build Mode was the most fun he’s had with the game in years? Fortnite‘s queue times on servers were also at over an hour duration on the day of C3:S2’s launch, which further substantiates that there was no lack of players wanting to test out the markedly changed environment of the game.
While Fortnite‘s no building mode is currently designated as a LTM (Limited Time Mode), this wouldn’t be the first time that a LMT became a permanent fixture in the game, with Team Rumble, a former LMT that has been a permanent selection in the game for over a year now, being one such example.
Additional efforts from TweaBR seem to only reinforce the notion that Fortnite‘s no building modes will become permanent selections, as they discovered some of the game’s loading screens modified to say, “In modes with building enabled.”
Seems like Epic IS planning to keep a No-Building modes, here are some signs/proofs 🔥
– There's SEPARATE No-Building modes that they can enable ANYTIME after this limited time event ends
– They changed most loading screen tips to say "In modes with building enabled …" pic.twitter.com/SvQ5SkbCit
