Some Fortnite players are upset that Epic decided to make Zero Build a permanent mode despite its popularity with the wider community.
Fortnite’s no-building mode was a hit with players, even bringing people who hadn’t played the game in years back to the battle royale.
On April 2nd, Fortnite brought building back while also keeping Zero Build as an optional mode. Most players seem excited that no-build will be an option going forward, but a very vocal sect of fans blasted the decision.

Building is back – play your way!

There was already a division between Fortnite players who like to build and those who don’t, but the addition of Zero Build as a permanent mode only seems to have brought it to light.
“You better not remove the building anymore and also remove the no-build gamemode because I have ptsd from the no-building,” said Twitter user @XxFortniteGodx.
“Claiming for being a ‘Fortnite god’ but I can’t even adapt to new things ok mate lol,” replied another
A common response from the pro-building camp was that despite the popularity it brought back to the game, Zero Build was somehow geared towards less experienced players.
“No builds are for the players who aren’t good enough at building,” replied one user.
“I SPEAK FOR ALL WHEN WE SAY DON’T REMOVE BUILDINGS!” said another.
Zero Build here to stay in Fortnite
Despite the outrage from hardcore builders, Zero Build appears to be officially here to stay in Fortnite.
Whether it or the classic Build mode will become more popular – time will tell – but there is no doubt that the change has brought a whole group of players back to battle royale.
