Epic Games have provided an update on their goals of changes they want to make to Fortnite Battle Royale to keep the game fun, interesting, fresh and new.
TL;DR – We are going to continue to make changes to evolve the game to give players multiple ways to counter each other in combat, and create more strategies to win the game.Fortnite is constantly evolving. Our goal with any changes is to keep the game fun and interesting, keeping it feeling fresh and new.

It’s important to support a variety of late game strategies, that don’t boil down to “just build lol”. We strongly believe that the evolution of Fortnite supports a wide range of play styles and counterplay. Currently, the superiority of shotguns, rockets, and uncapped building are such a dominant play style in the final circle that most other strategies are being drowned out.

RECENT & UPCOMING CHANGES

We have made a few changes recently — and will continue to make more — to give you options to counter other players in combat, especially in the late game.

We are exploring changes to weapon balance and resource economy, like e.g. resource caps.

MOVING FORWARD

So, where does this leave us?

You should be able to find Victory Royales through multiple strategies. Shotguns should be strong, but other weapons have room to grow. Not every encounter should have to end in a build-off. We want to empower you to showcase your skill, strategy, and tactics in all variety of ways.

We’ll be exploring these changes over the next few weeks – we’re excited to hear your thoughts and encourage you to participate in discussions on our various social channels.

  1. BUILDING IS WHAT MADE FORTNITE YOU CANT NERF IT!! CANT BELEIVE YOUR MAKING THE GAME MORE LIKE PUB G WHICH IS A TERRIBLE GAME!

    • Nerfing building is honestly a better option because I feel someone should be punished for sitting in the open leaving their guard down

    • Shuuuushhh. This is great. This opens up alot of ways to win without strictly building. Back during the good days, season one and early season two, building was rare, and when it was there, it wasnt insane like nowadays, thats when it was fun to play fortnite, now its just stressful.

  2. You reach the top and then destroy yourself. Don’t change what made the game so distinctive just because your running out of things to nerf.

  3. Maybe make a special game mode for people who arent so good at building. Shouldnt nerf building for the people who spent so much time working at getting better at it. Just make a “Competition” Lobby like black ops?

  4. Literally i hope building gets nerfed cause people like barely use there guns all they do is justice build to kill someone it’s stupid

  5. I´ m already getting sick of how long it takes to get a decent amount of materials. If there will be more nerfes to building, i quit.

  6. This is why I’m done playing this stupid game there making it for bad people to get easier wins… I suck at shotgun fight but I have building to back it up and now they are taking it away….. first need the shotgun and now the building this game is pathetic now… season 1 was easily the best the game was actually fun

  7. Just limit the amount of materials, harvesting is so boring and waste of time, we need to harvest faster, I don’t care about the amount!

  8. Building is what made this game famous for and why its here where it is. If there will be building nerfs the game will soon come the its end
