Fixed at Zero received positive reviews. Alternative Press gave the album 4 out of 5 stars, applauding the album on its broad dynamic range. AbsolutePunk praised the band's work on the album, stating "In a time where a lot of similar acts care more about style rather than substance, VersaEmerge is a breath of fresh air."[4] Sputnik Music gave the album 3.5 out of 5 stars, stating "If you haven’t given Versa a shot, either because pop-rock’s not your thing, or you feel obligated to hate everything Fueled By Ramen touches, consider this a dare. The band is a breath of ingenuity in a pretty stale parade of warped tour schlock."[5] The Sound Alarm gave the album a score of 8 out of 10, stating "These guys have a very bright future in the music industry, and it couldn’t be more relevant in this release, Fixed at Zero."[6]
