In case you missed the news over the weekend, Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 2 is finally here. The update, titled Resistance, brings the typical selection of new cosmetics, a new Battle Pass, weapons and more. However, it is the absolute removal of the building that drew the attention of the masses.
It takes a lot to surprise the Fortnite community these days. The game has pulled off some really outrageous stunts in the past, like a massive fight against Galactus, taming wild animals, and an Among Us-inspired imposter mode.
But it’s the removal of a feature that raises eyebrows this time around. Building has been a fundamental part of the game for as long as Fortnite has existed. Looking at the Fortnite Reddit, the community is torn on how to assess the situation. User Holandash praised the change and wrote about how it helped interest her and her friends.
“I’ve seen a lot of people quit giving the game a try years ago, so thanks Epic! Really hope this no-build can be added as an additional mode (without deleting it from Pubs, Arena and Creative of course)
My friends and I are Supreme on CSGO and Immortal on Valorant, so we have a lot of fun fighting players who only use weapon and movement mechanics, and even when my friends die, they don’t seem as inclined as they would for someone fullboxing and editing die on them”
On the other side of the argument, however, some players fight the idea of removing constructions as a mechanic. For years people have claimed that building ruined Fortnite for them, and users like StarrOcean are happy to humorously point out the ridiculousness of these claims.
“I’m so tired of loading into a Fortnite game and getting beamed by all these sweaty aimers with their scoped weapons. Fortnite used to be like Minecraft with guns, where you had to use skills like building and first shot accuracy, but now as soon as anyone sees you, they start spamming their scoped ARs. I work 7 jobs and have 20 kids and just don’t have time to practice shooting like all these no life 9 year olds. Please Fortnite remove the guns so people like me can have fun again.
Regardless of where you stand on that matter, it’s clear that this season of Fortnite is truly unique in an already diverse history of exciting content updates. What are your thoughts on the removal of buildings from Fortnite this season? Are you a fan, or do you want it to still be there?
