According to a notable leaker, Epic Games is working on bringing a first-person mode to Fortnite, and players are more than ready.
At the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, Epic Games pulled the biggest stunt in the game’s history. They removed the ability to build structures.
This limited-time event would later become a permanent game mode bringing former Fortnite enthusiasts back to the cartoon battle royale. And even after an entire season of No Build mode, players like Ninja and Tfue routinely play the game on stream.
However, it seems Epic Games may be working on another new mode that will once again shake up Fortnite.
Fortnite adding first-person mode
According to HYPEX, a notable Fortnite leaker, Epic Game is working on a first-person camera mode. They began working on the mode at the start of Fortnite Season 3, and it’s seemingly still in early development.
The mode would force loopers to play from the perspective of their character. This would make looking around corners and obstacles a lot harder since the player would have a much smaller field of view.
Think Apex Legends or Call of Duty but set in a cartoon environment. HYPEX noted that a first-person camera would work really well in the Zero Build modes.

There’s no other information available for the mode, so it’s unlikely for it to be implemented this season. That being said, the replies to HYPEX’s tweet are filled with players excited about the possibility of this new mode.
