After Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 began, and the building mechanics were taking out of the battle royale–an idea that became very popular–Epic Games has decided to make the no-build permanent. They’ve done so in a permanent format called Fortnite Zero Build. Game modes featuring building are still playable in arena and creative, though there’s no word on when (or if ever) building will return to the game’s public lobbies.
Zero Build is now available in Solo, Duo, Trio, and Squad matchmaking. Many of the new mechanics introduced with the mode–including mantling, using Ascenders to board blimps, and the overshield, will also be featured in this mode. Alternately, players can choose the standard battle royale mode to enjoy the old-school building gameplay.
Other changes that arrived in the Fortnite 20.00 March 29th patch include a new Anvil rocket launcher and a new funding initiative where players can choose to unvault either the Combat Assault Rifle that debuted during Chapter 2 Season 8 or the MK-Seven Assault Rifle introduced last season.
