Those of you who’ve played the new Fortnite season will surely agree that it’s great. Many of you may have a passionate distaste for service games, but the way Epic has made minor tweaks to the Battle Royale’s core gameplay to give it a rapid, action-packed pace is to be applauded. Of course, traditional construction mechanics are scheduled to return soon.
Or are they? Well, it looks like the developer has been laying the foundations for an alternative Fortnite experience. A data miner has uncovered new code in the game which points to an all-new playlist: No Builds Battle Royale. You’ll be able to play Solo, Duos, or Trios with building disabled. Further proof comes by way of fresh tooltips, which refer to “modes where building is enabled”.
Plenty of people still like the building gameplay, of course, but personally we’re enjoying this new season without it. If it does become a permanent addition – which, let’s face it, is almost certain right now – then we reckon we’ll probably play with the feature disabled for the foreseeable future. How about you?

Sounds like a good idea and after a while they’ll know which one to get rid of.
It's the keyboard victims I feel sorry for. Building gives the angry noobs a chance but with nowhere to hide the rage from those Players is going to reach Incredible Hulk levels now. I love watching these idiots use their fists and lately their feet as weapons to break their stuff in front of a live audience.
I mean Livestreamers on Twitch. They literally go ballistic whenever somebody guns them down making me ask the question: why do you people even bother to play at all?
The keys from keyboards go flying everywhere like Lego.
Sorry just thinking out loud 🤣
Building is fortnite's 'thing' though isn't it?
Though the games been around so long they surely know what their players are interested in.
@Balosi It is but many people don't like it as it can slow down the pace of the game.
So much better without building - and I wasn’t one of the anti-building people before this season.
All of the new gameplay features introduced in Chapter 3 so far have been great (sliding last season and sprint/climb/shield recharge this season). Good stuff.
Ah! My most played game on PS4.
Building was something innovating so it's a shame, but I got tired of it the more I played.
Idk. Kind of want the game to have it so it's not a typical third person shooter BR.
@OmegaStriver They won't remove either lmfao
No doubt both modes will be kept as an option going forward. Personally I prefer it without building.
Are people able to cheat in this game and use some form of aim-bot?
I ask because I got taken out the last time I played by some kid with an SMG from miles away... He had a suspiciously accurate aim with that SMG given the distance!
With all the mechanics they've added over the years, I might just hop back on. I've only played season 1, but it got interesting again
It's fun, no doubt. Hopefully Epic does keep the mode but they sure have added in so much since I last played. Vehicles, mantling, sliding, spider webs even the battlepass looks full of cool looking stuff. Had no idea, but I'll stick with it for this season, at least.
@RubyCarbuncle "The keys from keyboards go flying everywhere like Lego."
The imagery on this one was funny lmao
Never been anti-building but it did damped my interest once I figured out I'd never win without being able to be good at that side of it. Gave the new mode a try last night and came 3rd and 5th so I might actually get a win this weekend!
That being said, I was always completely in awe of those who hear one bullet and then build a four storey fortress in seconds whilst shooting back.
@BowTiesAreCool Lol, it's almost magical innit.
I'm an old man. Veteran of pre-source Counter Strike back in 2001 or whenever I started. I was older than most players even back then, being mid-twenties at the time when most were teens and early 20's.
I've always been able to hold my own against the kids in a a pure shooting battle in Fortnite, but I lack the muscle memory or the patience to learn it when it comes to building!
A no building mode sounds like my cuppa, but suspect I will just end up in a pool of similar old men, with the kids preferring the building mode.
Funnily enough its how ive always played (no building) and i've always done well with loads of wins solo and squads.
@Bogbupog Just look up Gamer Rage on YouTube and you'll be able to watch compilations of Twitch Streamers smashing their keyboards, they're nuts so they are. Sometimes monitors end up getting damaged or broken altogether too.
@Toypop Nope I don't think so. I'm 44 and a no building mode makes Fortnite more appealing to me. I've only played it here and there as I didn't find it very appealing. This mode could change everything, we'll see.
As someone who usually hates building, there have been moments when I wanted it badly 😂
Definitely makes winning easier for me without, but those tanks are a pain in the ass
The building parts has always been one of the main reasons I’ve never gotten very interested in Fortnite.
So can totally understand why they’d have it as permanent addition.
