Epic Looking to Change the Fortnite Battle Royale Endgame

Epic Looking to Change the Fortnite Battle Royale Endgame

Less building, more strategies.

Epic sounds like it wants to switch up the way people play Fortnite Battle Royale. "Just build lol" is definitely one strategy, as Epic points to, but the developer wants players to achieve the sweet Victory Royale by other means.

Over in a post on the Fortnite forums, Epic says that want to "create more strategies to win the game". The developer goes on to say that "It’s important to support a variety of late game strategies, that don’t boil down to “just build lol”".

Building is obviously a key strategy in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Epic might have found a way to prevent building en masse at the end of a Fortnite match, saying "We are exploring changes to weapon balance and resource economy, like e.g. resource caps". This certainly sounds promising for those that aren't too adept at building on the fly, creating a more even playing field where everyone has an equal shot at attaining the Victory Royale.

"We’ll be exploring these changes over the next few weeks", Epic concludes with. We don't yet know the specifics of the plan to change the endgame of Fortnite moving forward, but we'll be sure to report on any additional changes made to the hit Battle Royale game.

For now though, make sure to head over to our Fortnite Week 8 Challenges guide, where we'll be walking you through how to complete the latest set of tough challenges that Battle Pass owners have access to.
