It looks like no building is here to stay in Fortnite with the introduction of Fortnite Zero Build.

A little over a week into Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 and we already have the first small content update. This was a hotfix rather than a whole new patch, so you shouldn’t need to download anything to test it out.

Fortnite Zero Build

The temporary removal of building for the start of Season 2 was such a success that, as expected, Epic has added a separate no building mode alongside the standard public playlists.

Zero Build is available as Solos, Duos, Trios and Squads, and can be found as usual in the discover menu. The accompanying announcement blog post mentions nothing about this being a Limited Time Mode, so we can expect it to stick around long term.

Building has been reenabled in the normal battle royale mode, though at time of writing these playlists appear to be bugged and not showing up for many players. It appears that this is simply a bug, and not a decision to fully replace standard pubs with the new Zero Build mode.

Anvil Rocket Launcher

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new explosive in the game, and this launcher is uniquely designed for handling vehicles like the tanks. Locate your target with the scope, lock onto it, and fire!

Grab the Anvil Rocket Launcher in Chests, Seven Supply Crates and IO Chests, Supply Drops and from Sharks.

MK-Seven vs Combat Assault Rifle

A fresh Funding Station vote is almost upon us, and fans will have the choice to unvault one of two popular Assault Rifles. Both the MK-Seven and Combat Assault Rifle will be in-game from April 2 to April 4 for you to try out.

Shortly after this, the vote will go live and players can visit Donation Boards around the map to contribute gold bars towards their favorite.


The first Cash Cups of the season are coming up next week and Arena Hype has been reset with today’s hotfix.

Additionally, the new Anvil Rocket Launcher will not feature in Arena or tournament modes and neither will the MK-Seven/Combat Assault Rifle trial this weekend.
