Fortnite: Counterplay and Play Styles

6.21.2018

COUNTERPLAY AND PLAY STYLES

By The Fortnite Team

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.
