Fortnite players were surprised to see a no-building mode make its way to the game in Chapter 3, Season 2 and after the positive reaction, Epic Games has made it a permanent mode called Zero Build.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 has delivered a ton of new content for players to enjoy like new skins to unlock and brand-new challenges to complete. Alongside the slew of new content, Epic Games also made the bold decision to remove building from the battle royale.

The change went down well with players and given its success, it’s no surprise that Epic Games announced a permanent no-building mode called Zero Build.

The major change will certainly alter Fortnite core gameplay but some players don’t seem to mind. The drastic change has even resulted in renewed interest from casual players who had previously dropped the game.

The no-building mode was supposed to be a limited-time twist but on March 29, Epic Games confirmed that players will be able to enjoy a no-build mode permanently. This mode will be called Zero Build and is available live in-game as of March 29.

Epic decided to keep the mode beyond its initial limited availability and this was likely due to the positive reaction from players. Several popular streamers and content creators have reacted to the Twitter announcement with excitement.

Epic Games describes Zero Build as “a pure test of weapon, item, and traversal ability.” Fortnite players can find the Zero Build mode on the Discover page. Once there, they can choose between Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads playlists.

Although building has not returned to traditional Fortnite modes, players are hoping that the feature will be back soon, alongside the Zero Build mode. This would keep players happy as fans of the game would opt for their preferred mode with few drawbacks. We’ll let you know when building returns to Fortnite.

Will Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 have a live event finale?

According to data miners following the v20.40 update, Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 will end with a live event.

Data miners have discovered strings that appear to prove there will be a season-ending live event finale. Leaker FNBRintel has discovered a ton of strings for the event, which include an in-game countdown and a way for streamers to use DMCA-free music during it.

Another leaker, FortTory, has also said that there will be a pre-event lobby where “we can expect some animations and sequences” before the main event. However, they won’t say anything more for now.

New skins for Paradigm and Jonesy have also been found in the patch notes, and Shiina believes they’ll have a part to play in the live event finale. They also leaked that there will be “multiple cosmetics available for the event.”

When is Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2’s live event finale?

Fortnite’s live events usually take place on the last day of the season, and a report from ShiinaBR claims that the Chapter 3, Season 2 event will begin on June 4, 2022.

According to this leak, the event will take place for the entirety of June 4, and Chapter 3, Season 3 will officially go live the very next day. Shiina claims that they first heard these dates a few days prior to this leak.

Fortnite Intel claimed in a tweet that once the event concludes, there will be “an extended downtime,” with a “waiting screen similar to previous events.” Currently, it has not been confirmed exactly how long the downtime will last.

It will most likely end in the early hours of June 5, as that’s the time Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is expected to launch. However, these are currently just leaks, so be sure to take this information with a grain of salt.

You can find both the Rail Gun and a Recon Scanner as floor loot or inside Chests. Since these are high-rarity items, we recommend visiting the best Fortnite landing spots if you want to acquire them quickly.

Once you’ve found both of these items, you can use the Rail Gun to damage your opponents by simply firing at them. However, this weapon can take some time to recharge, so be sure to find cover to hide behind.

You can use the Rail Gun to deal damage from 50 meters or more by placing a ping marker on the ground to check how much distance there is between you and your enemy. If the marker shows that you’re too close, you can just step back.

In order to use the Recon Scanner, you’ll need to aim it at the ground before firing. This will mark all nearby enemies, so we recommend doing it in a location with a high number of players during the match.

Be sure to use the Rail Gun to dish out damage within 30 seconds of marking enemies with the Recon Scanner in order to complete one of the objectives. These Quests are easy to complete, and you should be able to get them done in a single match.
