Fortnite Reverts Controversial Turbo Build Changes

Epic Games has reverted the controversial Fortnite turbo build delay update which was part of v10.20's patch notes. The update added an extra 0.10 seconds to the turbo build delay, making turbo-building significantly harder for Fortnite players and prompting a large campaign to revert the change.

Yesterday, Epic Games doubled down on its reasoning for the change but it has since given up and reverted back to the 0.05 second delay that has been in place since Season 4.

  • Turbo Building timing for placing subsequent pieces changed back to 0.05 seconds from 0.15 seconds.
  • After a structure is destroyed, there will be a timer of 0.15 seconds before another piece can be placed in the same location.
  • If two players are attempting to place a piece at the same time and location where a piece was just destroyed, a random roll will determine whose piece is placed, instead of ping playing such a large role.
