The No Builds Limited Time Mode in Fortnite was so popular that Epic Games decided to make it a permanent game mode in the battle royale, and that decision is bringing back some of the game’s most famous players.

Prominent Fortnite leakers predicted that the mode would become permanent in Fortnite. The confirmed change has been one met with approval from the most iconic of Fortnite streamers, with many picking up the once-abandoned game again to play the No Builds game mode.

Fortnite community praises No Builds in Fortnite

Building in Fortnite has always been frustrating for some players who didn’t enjoy how the game’s building elements had such a large impact on gameplay. Competitive players and high-level players alike were deemed “sweaty” for the ability to create super tall structures quickly while also positioning themselves for combat with opponents.

For streamers, it was becoming more difficult to create content or enjoy a match on stream with these hardcore builders ruining their fun. Before No Builds became a permanent mode, Turner “Tfue” Tenney wistfully tweeted that it should be a mainstay in Fortnite. He was excited when it actually happened, creating Fortnite content once again.

Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm agreed, saying No Builds was “actually fun,” something he thought he’d never say about Fortnite again.

The biggest Fortnite streamer of them all, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, was also a huge fan of No Builds. Fans were excited to see Ninja back to playing the battle royale that made him so famous at the height of his streaming career.

“Fortnite with no building is the most fun I’ve had on Fortnite in YEARS,” Ninja tweeted.

xQc and Pokimane get in trouble in Fortnite’s No Builds mode

Popular Twitch streamers Felix “xQc” Lengyel and Imane “Pokimane” Anys wanted to join the No Builds fun themselves and decided to play some games on March 25. But xQc and Pokimane both found themselves in hot water soon after when they were accused of teaming with stream snipers.

xQc and Pokimane were attempting to enjoy the new Fortnite mode when they were surrounded by stream snipers. This is something xQc is already accustomed to, so he decided to mess with the cheaters by asking them to slide down a nearby hill.

But as xQc was counting down, xQc and Pokimane were kicked from the lobby. The duo received a message from Fortnite that said they were “kicked for teaming.”

“Oh my god, I’m so glad we’re not fully banned. I actually thought we would be fully banned. We need to create a custom game if we want to do that,” Pokimane said after the incident.
