Love or hate it, one thing you can't say about Fortnite is that it doesn't receive constant support and updates from Epic Games, making it feel stale. In fact, the developers have always looked to push the boundaries of what the battle royale can achieve, with their sights set on creating a new first-person experience for players. 

Despite what many considered a stunt that dismissed the essence of the game, Fortnite's Zero Build mode proved to be a resounding success. Just as people couldn't imagine the battle royale without building mechanics, could it be possible that Epic envisions playing Fortnite in a first-person view? 

Will Fortnite get a first-person camera?

According to reliable leaker and data miner HYPEX, Epic Games has started working on a first-person camera view with the most recent Fortnite update. 

"This update Epic began working on some stuff about first person camera mode but there's no other info about it at the moment as it looks like it's still in early development," HYPEX tweeted out.

Fortnite has used a first-person view for certain guns inside the game, such as sniper rifles or some assault rifles; however, fully committing to a complete first-person experience has yet to be done. 

Fans have reacted with a nice degree of positivity, as many feel a potential first-person camera would fit perfectly with Zero Build. Building mechanics being disabled leaves more room for aiming and mechanical skill to determine the outcome of a fight, rather than immediately building an entire castle at the first sign of danger.

In any case, it'll be a while before we get to see any sort of information regarding a potential first-person camera in Fortnite. As HYPEX mentioned, Epic Games has just barely begun working on it, fully adapting a new camera into a vast game like Fortnite will definitely take some time while the devs fix issues and debug everything in order to deliver fans a snappy experience.
