Top 10 Reasons Why Fortnite Sucks


The Top Ten

1 It's overrated

True, I get very annoyed when other kids mention the word "Fortnite" - SpectralOwl

Just as annoying as hearing about Marvel movies and Jake Paul - B1ueNew

I tried it 6 months ago with my friends and now 4 months later everyone discovered this abomination and you can't go one class without hearing fortnite

I mean while I can't really get into the game (I'm just not a fan of online multiplayer shooters in general to be honest) I can at least see what makes this game appealing and that it is a well made game. Just say it's just not your cup of tea and move on. - cjWriter1997

Okay, let's see. What makes Fortnite so special that every corner you turn you hear the name? Nothing. It's an okay game, just another battle royale. The graphics and concepts aren't special. The only new thing is building, not that much of a big deal. Nothing is special about it, yet all you hear is " I got a solo battle royale win! " "yo did you see me yesterday! 111" "ninja! "

Like, just shut up. It's not that good of a game. The only reason people play it is because of the battle royale, NOBODY plays "Save the World." So quit shoving your Fortnite garbage down my throat.

2 Everyone talks about it

I hear the word "Fortnite" everywhere. Literally everywhere, at school, in the shop, in my house, outside, in a bus, and even I hear it from atoms

Just because people talk about it doesn't mean it really is THAT bad. - RyanSmith123014

At school I can't sit at my desk without hearing the word, "FORTNITE" And when the teachers not looking everyone does FORTNITE dances. Everywhere I go I can't sit down without hearing the word FORTNITE.

Even kids in my school play fortnite! And I can't stand it! I hope this game gets banned from schools and the United States! It's like the world's worst game!

Fortnite is not bad enough to be claimed the world's worst game because almost everyone plays it. In fact, not close because there are still a lot of worse games out there. - Jasmine21064

What is there to even talk about with this game? It's just the same damn thing over and over again, you jump out of a plane, you land safely, you kill people, build and collect loot. That's not at all interesting to talk about. Why not talk about meeting famous people? That's more interesting

3 It's repetitive

Just like reading this list - OGCalzone

I agree! The person who made this list probably NEVER played Fortnite because I had the same opinion before I played

By looking at the username of the person who created this list, can't you tell that this list is pathetic?

At least it isn't as repetitive as calling someone/thing overrated on this site. - Qryx

Hypocrite list creator geez - fwed

4 It is luck based

Just either you spend a 20 minute super boring game and then win or die in 10 seconds.

Definitely, in regards to the broken, obsolete bloom mechanic, a random number generator presumably was implemented irregardless of which body part your projectile impacts. A perfect demonstration of this is the Pump-Action shotgun. Epic implies that the pump will deal significant damage if a headshot is established through a series of consecutive and precise accuracy; this is not the case from a personal perspective. I have played Fortnite for 8 months and it is the same, repetitve issue that I mostly experience during a close encounter conflict, dealing 6 damage (or 1 if you were discussing about the Tac) with a high powered weapon, pump or heavy, in the head is absolutely pathetic. Attributing such an irregular quantity of 'damage dealt to another player' which completely does not approprate in certain circumstances annoys the hell out of other people, and you would likely expect incompetent people on the other hand to deal more than 100 damage with a similar weapon to you. Again, ...more

The first guy is probably garbage at fortnite

Everyone on this list who say it's luck based have clearly really loved the game at one point until they died and then they raged so started hated on it

5 It's boring

So right. Fortnite is just walking around trying to get gear and staying in a circle. Then someone snipes you.

Yeah. The game is so repetitive. You do the exact same thing every game. Grab a gun and kill, grab a gun and kill, grab a gun and kill.

I think Fortnite is boring and a waste of time. I don't understand why people play it. It looks terrible and stupid.

Some games are just really boring. Fortnite is one of them. All you do is kill people and win. It's stupid.

V 85 Comments
6 Loot system is super unbalanced

Yes lol it really is I can find the same gun 3 times in a row without finding a different gun

You start off with trash guns then as game goes on you get better loot. Sounds pretty trash to me

That's how its supposed to work. Its called upgrading bro. Do you really want someone to start with a pump shotgun (chance) NO. - JayJayPlayzzz

Guys got legendary pump of start I got gray infantry rifle

Seriously, this along with bloom is why fortnite is straight garbage based off luck most of the time

7 You have to pay real money to get skins

YEAH I know I tried fortnite with my friend he told me he spent like $500 for everything he has on it AND if you get banned that means he WASTED $500

He got banned for exploiting apparently even though that's not possible - SuperMiloX

How else is a FREE GAME going to make money - dotexe

The company just tries to drain the wallets of the morons who play and don't even put the money into the game with better developments to it. They just pocket the money and just randomly ban people who have wasted their money on the sheer stupidity and disgrace to game developing that is Fortnite.

Ok so this is really stupid. Fortnite is gonna die someday and then the people who spent hundreds or even thousands of dollars on it will have wasted a lot of cash - fwed

V 82 Comments
8 You get killed too easily

That means you are probably a triggered trash kid

I fired fifty shots at one person and they did not die. They shot one shot at me and I died immediately

When YOU get in a fortnite game your probably a noob but everyone else is ADDICTED meaning they're better than you giving you no chance to get good.

Lol if you do then you're either trash or really unlucky - fwed

V 71 Comments
9 It's overpriced

Oh no! How will I able to spend $0.00 on this game without going into bankruptcy!?

Guys, I think he/she means that the skins and emotes are overpriced.

Yeah, it's so trash, that it is even overpriced being free. Play a game that isn't for virgins like Minecraft, a godly game. Vive le Minecraft

It's so bad and plus why does it cost so much.

V 62 Comments
10 It is not fun

Fortnite is the worst everyday I hear kids saying that fortnite is the best game in the world and acting like fortnite is the only game in the world

Every thing on this list is RIGHT

All you do is just kill people how can that be fun

I only play the game because of the popularity and even youtuber have said the game is not fun and it's really bad

V 62 Comments

The Contenders

11 It's bland

Yep just a run of the mill game that doesn't have blood so it can pass through you tube and not be censored

Just like this list. -Nerd2019

Yes, Fortnite has no admin, even Minecraft has admin

Bland, not fun, and boring are all the same thing. I would just simply say it's bland and leave it at that - codgtamk34

V 12 Comments
12 You get shot mid air

Look I hate Fortnite too, but my god this list is so laughably bad. It's the same thing 3-4 times - codgtamk34

Skill. That's skill. - TriggerTrashKid

Part of the game... and rarely happens


V 18 Comments
13 It rips off PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds

Fortnite came out before, yes. But they ripped off the Battle Royale part and that is how they started becoming popular. - Firepower

Well it came out in 2015 but it ripped off battle royale - Unnamed Google User Remade

This is so true.

Ah yes, I hate Fortnite: Battle Royal for ripping off PUBG, but the original Fortnite had some potential. - SamHalls2015

14 The V-buck system is ridiculous

If you have V- Bucks, Kids won't believe you because they don't have V-Bucks.

Fortnite sucks

Fortnite sucks guys

True this is just you can get almost everything with v-bucks - LordWerwereop

V 16 Comments
15 It takes no skill

That's best reasons ever why fortnite sucks

Yeah. Spam a few buttons and POOF! Victory Royale! - TriggerTrashKid

Yes it does, YOU GUYS NEED TO GET GOOD LOL - fwed

Yeah! Explains why I have 0 wins and I die a lot in team rumble!

16 People are way too addicted

My cousin has ruined his household because of it.

He used to hang out with his parents and sister and get along with everyone else too. But now he throws expired doritos everywhere when he loses and doesn't speak with his family. His sister plans on a wifi takeover

Same with every other game - Userguy44

Kids have a dangerous addition to it.

Definitely like a 9 year old girl had to go to rehab over her fortnite addiction like I think it should be banned kids think fortnite is more important than family time

V 27 Comments
17 Only little kids play it

All my sons talk about it. They deserve to be burned at the cross

Your not a dad so don't say sons. Also when you outgrow your 6 year old, anger infested mind, then ill take you a little more seriously. - SpacedAtari

When did little kids suddenly get allowed to play a shooter and play it 24/7.

And I saw a 70 year old granddad get victory royale! - TriggerTrashKid

Not only little kids play it, technically little kids aren't even allowed to play it, it is rated M or T so I don't know why they play - fwed

V 30 Comments
18 It's not the only game in the world but everyone thinks it is who plays it

This must be one of the most ignorant things I have seen in my life. Whoever said Fortnite is the only (good) game in the world who plays it? - Userguy44

I mean come on! I can't talk about video games anymore because my friends don't care about any game except Fortnite! by the way, you guys do know there's another ssb coming, right? What? You don't care? Oh! Back to talking about Fortnite I guess.

True, I remember playing video games 10+ years before Fortnite came out. - SamHalls2015

I play and I'm not like that, I love Pokemon, SSB, Mario Kart, Persona, and loads more games. This list is not only stereotypical but stupid as well - fwed

19 The animation sucks

It's not that bad compared to some other games, not mentioning any names *cough* Minecraft *cough*. Now you might say that is the point of Minecraft, but to be honest, Fortnite could easily have better graphics, it's just that the developers want to keep it more family friendly - fwed

Fortnite sucks mostly because of this reason

Ya this is true footnote only has the shooting animation how the heck did it get popular

One, the animation idea was from team fortress two, and fortnite made horrid rubbery animations instead of the conga and the Kowalski kick.

V 11 Comments
20 Too many updates

Updates are so bad that it makes the game 20x worse

Its already season 9 or almost...

This is why Minecraft died

Updates make the game fresh... - JayJayPlayzzz

21 It’s luck based

This was here already, think of something new guys - fwed

It is. One guy gets a gold combat and you get a grey heavy ar.
Sweats everywhere who have good loot
Some servers are trash that's how some poepl get so much wins because of trash servers

On this list already ALSO ITS NOT BASED OFF LUCK

Yeah, and you're already on this list as well.

26 The building system is ridiculous

I agree. The point of the building system is to build a fort but nobody does that. It's used in fights as just temporary cover, making the fighting gameplay annoying. The fight isn't about who can shoot accurately or who has the best guns; it's just whoever scrapped the most stuff for building materials. Also, I tried to build a wall in 5 seconds. It did not work

I agree with speedster

It sucks

These topics are trash. Yes fortnite is trash, but its not bad. The building system makes it unique, if your bad at a game do you always make a forum to trash talk it? - SpacedAtari

Finally someone I can agree with. You can tell that they're just a bunch of salty children that got killed in their first game and now they want everything to be free, and the skill gap to be nonexistent, even lower than it already is. No matter how much you give kids, they always want more. The Skull Trooper came back out, do you see anyone using the Skull Trooper anymore? Of course not, because their attention span ran out and they realize how ugly the skin actually was. - UmassLOL48

27 Building mechanic is stupid

Can I just face palm as hard as I want? Not all video games simulate real life, you know. - MrCoolC

Building Mechanic is not stupid it is what makes fortnite unique. Once again, Just bec your trash at something doesn't make it stupid - GalaxedCreeper

Lets build a wall, but while it takes its five seconds to build there's a forcefield that still prevents shots from going through the unbuilt sections

You just run like a retarded with a blueprint in your hand

28 V-Bucks are hard to get

K opinion

This is already here - SuperMiloX

If you have the free pass, you can only get up to 300 V-Bucks - WorldPuncher47592834

Its stupid that you can't get v bucks from winning a game

That's true, I hadn't thought of that lol they should add that. (I don't spend money if that's what your thinking) - fwed

29 Matches are unfair

I think it's unfair that someone could be so dumb as to writing the matches are unfair. Really. I pity the fool - fwed

Shut up racist not everything is "fair" - TriggerTrashKid

This game is like minecraft hunger games having a baby with PUBG

So is Fallout 76 - codgtamk34

V 9 Comments
30 The fanbase is full of little kids

Its mostly filled with kids because #1 kids ask their parents constantly to buy V-bucks to get a stupid skin that doesn't even benefit you in the long run. I don't hate the game but it's just mostly filled with kids. #2 kids find stupid reasons to say fortnite is bad, and I am one of them, I don't hate it like I said but it's one game that needs to die

Little kids who can't take criticism. Seriously just search up "Fortnite sucks" on YouTube and you will find them whining about haters.

Already on the list. - codgtamk34

An item like this is already on this list. Please try to be more original with stuff like this. Thank you!

31 It's mainstream

So anything popular sucks acording to you. - B1ueNew

Although I do think Fortnite is not only overrated, but honestly a really bad game in general "It's mainstream" Isn't a reason to hate anything. Breathing, and living is mainstream, but you don't see any rebels to that, now do you?

How tf did it even get popular - soccerobsessed

Someone's an elitist, I see - styLIShT

32 The logic makes no sense

I totally understand why Final Fantasy is popular now! Thank you for clarifying that a game has to make sense to be good. I definitely feel so enlightened! - fwed

I agree it's a bad game, and in some places there are no logic, but how can you say that when we play games with zombie apocalypses, weapons that are 30 years into the future, and Italian plumbers shooting fireballs, killing things by jumping on them, and

While Italian Plumbers throwing fireballs and jumping 27 feet in the air makes sense. - TriggerTrashKid

It's a game. A GAME!

33 It was developed in only two months

That could just mean the developers are good and don't procrastinate, or maybe because every game is the same and there is no storyline to it. So I'm sorry if it only took 2 months, but I honestly think that they should be congratulated for making a game that is playable and I might even go as far as saying fun in only 2 months. I am not, however, saying that games that took a long time to make are bad games. They too are impressive, but that is not the point of my comment - fwed

Someone really needs to research more. Sure, the battle royale mode was made in two months, but the main campaign mode was being developed for many years. Can I just drink bleach? - MrCoolC

If they said it was 2 days I believed it to... such garbage

Nothing is simple. Not even this crappy game

Save The World isn't cosmetic, but still, it is quite stupid - fwed

Hey b1ueNew.
Shut up.

So is pretty much everything else on this earth. Your point is? - B1ueNew

His point is fortnite is terrible and should be deleted from the universe - SuperMiloX

41 The skill ceiling is absurd

Creative and playground modes exist for training you know - fwed

Not only that but they put new players up against very skilled players, it's just using new players to make experienced players seem better, needs a handicap type system or keep similar skill level players in the same match... it's impossible for not very talented players to ever do well... I gave up after struggling for months... also, no first person mode is sad

Decent reason, but it doesn't make fortnite a terrible game. However, a more leveled out platform would be nice. - GalaxedCreeper

You're either a complete noob or professional level player. There is no in between. - Sop

45 People make a fuss about it

It's full of kids

It is a tiny bit talked about too much but it doesn't make it a bad game and its not a ripoff - GalaxedCreeper

It does not deserve all the attention it gets it is a rip off game not even something orignal or even real

I can't stress this enough..

46 The battle royale part takes away the point of ''fortnite"

They bailed out on the original mode they were doing and made another mode because they don't know how to get popular.

They didn't "bail out" on the original mode and they made a BR gamemode bec it was getting popular. That's why Call of Duty 4 has a BR - GalaxedCreeper

It still has forts and night! But yeah, I don’t think Fortnite was expecting for the Battle Royale mode to be popular - sadical

Needs to be a better mode than battle Royale

47 It's a waste of time

Fortnite is a stupid game that you don't even have freedom in! Why do people even waste their time playing this TRASH game!?!?
