Fortnite Zero Build battle royale mode officially added to game

The datamines didn’t lie: Epic Games has officially added a no-building mode to Fortnite after removing building from the main battle royale modes at the onset of Chapter 3, Season 2.

The non-building option will be available from the selection screen as Fortnite Zero Build.

“Zero Build mode is a pure test of weapon, item, and traversal ability,” Epic announced on Tuesday. “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.)

“Without building, all players have the recharging Overshield as your first line of defense in Zero Build. Zip up Ascenders to access Blimps or use Mantling to get the high-ground over your opponents. Don’t forget to Sprint between cover on your way to a Victory Royale!”

While building had been removed from normal non-building modes at the beginning of C3:S2, the ability remained fully intact in Arena modes; Fast Sprint and Mantling, two new player abilities which were introduced in non-building mode, were also available in Arena mode, adding an interesting new element to sweaty building battles.

Tuesday’s update (V 20.00 March 29 Hotfix) also introduces the brand-new Anvil Rocket Launcher, an anti-vehicle weapon which can target and lock onto IO tanks, cars and fire a homing rocket at them. The Anvil Rocket Launchers can be discovered in regular and Rare chests, Seven Supply and IO Chests, Supply Drops, and from sharks.

What do you think of the option for Fortnite Zero Build mode, the game’s official non-building game mode? Sound off in the comments.

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
