Here's everything you need to know about The Block 2.0 in Fortnite.

What is the Block 2.0 in Fortnite?

The Block 2.0 made its way to Fortnite ahead of No Sweat Summer. The initiative was launched back in June as a way to involve members of the Fortnite community in rebuilding Tilted Towers. The project was essentially a design contest, the criteria for which can be found here.

The Block 2.0 contest allowed gamers to submit building designs for three separate structures within Tilted Towers. Those three structures are The Restaurant, The Apartments, and the Shops.

When Does the Block 2.0 End in Fortnite?

Although the submissions for the Block 2.0 contest were due June 15 before midnight, there is still time to vote on the user-generated designs selected by Epic through the Rebuild The Block Quests.

The voting schedule for the three buildings is as follows:

  • The Restaurant — took place from July 21 at 9 a.m. ET to July 27 at 3 p.m. ET
  • The Apartments — took place from July 27 at 3 p.m. ET to Aug. 3 at 1 a.m. ET
  • The Shops — began on Aug. 3 and is still taking place until Aug. 9 at 9 a.m. ET

Rebuild the Block Quests

By participating in the Rebuild the Block Quests, Fortnite players are able to earn rewards as well as have their say in which structure gets built. Specific rewards include XP, a Contrail, Pickaxe, and Back Bling. Players may cast their votes by donating bars towards the construction project of their choice. The winning design will appear at Tilted Towers with the start of the v21.40 patch.
