However, developer Epic Games stated today in a blog post its intention to change endgame structure of Fortnite in the near future. According to Epic most tactics now rely on the use of shotguns, rockets, and "just build lol", which we can't disagree with.
Epic Games is changing their flagship title not only by adding new content and cosmetics but also intends to slowly change Fortnite late game with balance tweaks to building and shotguns to provide more versatility to players.
The studio is now exploring changes to weapon balance and resource economy.
Fortnite's Battle Royale mode always had a rather different tone to the likes of H1Z1 and PUBG, largely thanks to being able to build ramps and walls to create impromptu defences and sniping nests, but as time has passed players have come to rely on this more and more. If "Fortnite" stays the same forever, it risks boring players and eventually losing them; if "Fortnite" changes too much, it risks alienating players and eventually losing them.
As things are right now, players who reach the end of a given match in "Fortnite" are likely to encounter rockets, endless building, and shotguns.
Changes are coming, and fan feedback and player behaviour will naturally play into how Epic rebalance the game.
So how does Epic plan on addressing this current late game strategy of "just build"? Keep an eye out for new Fortnite updates which will no doubt feature some of these changes.
These changes to the game should be coming in the next "few weeks", so enjoy your base building themed wins while you can. However, we don't know exactly what these changes will be just yet.
Fortnite is now available on Xbox One, PS4, PC and iOS, and the world's largest mobile operating system with more than 2 billion devices will get the game this coming summer. Epic Games believes "that the evolution of Fortnite supports a wide range of playstyles and counterplay".
"As a society, we need to get better at our general cyber awareness, weighing up the costs of how badly we need play the latest games vs potentially exposing ourselves to malicious apps". 'We want to empower you to showcase your skill, strategy, and tactics in all variety of ways'.
Despite Fornite being released in September 2017, Google's mobile operating system, which has more than two billion devices, is the last major platform to get the game.
