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"

Just as annoying as hearing about Marvel movies and Jake Paul

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.

Yes, like all the boys (and even a lot of the girls) I know basically worship Fornite.

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.

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.

The hype for fortnite is something in 100 years I will never understand as it is just another simple game and yet it gets treated like a god by little kids. I'm so relieved that the hype has died down severely cause I couldn't go anywhere without hearing about this game back in 2018.

3 It is luck based

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

Yes, it requires no skill, if you win a game, you might not actually be good at it, you could just be lucky.

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

Apparently based on your logic, any shooter game is luck based. Well guess I'll have to hate on PUBG.

4 It's repetitive

Just like reading this list

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

Like this list

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.

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 haven't gone one day without a stupid kid in my school talking about fortnight

It is the most fun game ever! I’m not kidding I used to hate in but then I fell in love with the game.

6 Loot system is super unbalanced

once I found just a bunch a common guns everywhere and my teammates had a bunch of lagendary guns


It's completely built around degenerates that can at all day!

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

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

kids beg there parents like crazy I mean can't some things be free? soo don't even pay a buck foor skins

Once you stop playing Fortnite You:
1. Wasted your life on it.
2. Wasted $3,000 Dollars on it.
3. Have the urge to grab a gun.

Have fun paying $200 dollars for stupid character skins!

You don't have to pay for them, there just trying to make profit of a game they worked on

I have never played Fortnite, but having to pay real money just to change your character's look is ridiculous. Just make the game itself cost money, not the skins! Why would you pay real money JUST to change a video game character's look? I thought the Roblox was terrible with it's paid character customization, but at least they give you some free items to customize your character, unlike Fortnite.

There is still the free pass but it won't give you skins I guess. I haven't spent a cent on Fortnite and I don't regret it

8 You get killed too easily

That means you are probably a triggered trash kid

Then you are a noob at the game. *waits for triggered Fortnite haters to reply*

I tried out Fortnite once, and I kept going onto servers with top-tier pro players, kept getting killed when I was minding my own business, looking for weapons, and decided to play a game I could actually get good at.

when I play on my cousins xbox 1 I die and I think ortnite should be shut down because theres so much fun you can do with spectating all the guys who killed you and take advantage of noobs

Agreed! The time when I came to my best friend's house and he made me play Fortnite (he's way too obsessed with it), I died in 5 seconds because I didn't know how to drop off the Battle Bus (which is dumb, by the way) to get to the jail in one of the areas (i don't know what their called) so I dropped off late and I got killed in 5 seconds.

9 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

It sucks, end of story

bruh play a different game not this poop game so don't even waste your muny

I will admit that when I started playing it, it was fun at first. But it just got repetitive doing the same thing over and over again. The monotony of the game is what led me to quit playing Fortnite and switch back to Minecraft. The latter game has infinite potential and it never gets boring.

10 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.

0 bucks is to much money lower it to -$1 lol

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

The Contenders

11 People are way too addicted

Fortnite is one of the most addicting games that around the end of September, a group of people/parents said that while Epic was developing the game, they brought in psychologists to make the game addicting. While the game doesn't have loot boxes, the game has cosmetics like skins and emotes, the two main items to get in the game.

My brother spends all day playing it on the weekends and starts playing it when he gets home from school everyday. He practically lives in his room. And when he's not playing, he's complaining!

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

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

12 You get shot mid air

It's super annoying.

This game sucks

I jump up and somehow I get head shotted

@Visitor, So you think if you fly in Call of Duty you are invincible?

Skill. That's skill.

13 The building system is ridiculous

Building is what makes it so unique. Without it, Fortnite would just be another normal Battle Royale game. And it's called Fortnite because you build forts.

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

Building anything in the middle of a fight is insanely stupid, I guess shooting behind cover is too hard for people that like that garbage. This game is trash

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?

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.

14 The V-buck system is ridiculous

DUDE kids beg there mom the get it for 2000 dollars worth and they get banned or get bored wich is totally understandable

if a skin is 2000 vbucks and 200 costs 20 actual dollars that's not ridiculous it's INSANE

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

You have to pay for currency, good games make you earn it, making it fun fortnite requires money to make any progress, and the store doesn't give you anything useful, it just isn't worth it

But the game is free so paying for skins is kinda like paying for the game

15 It takes no skill

People are aids

What in the hell does this have to do with this topic? And why is this the most liked comment?

It actually has no skilled involved... You just spam your build buttons, shoot your gun, and hope lag doesn't get you

I disagree because some people can barely get a kill... *cough* sadical

*Scrolls down*
*Sees Skill Ceiling is Absurd*
Me: Wait what?!

16 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

I think fortnite is STUPID I MEAN WHAT HAPPENED TO MINECRAFT AND OTHER GAMES I can't go through a whole day hearing fortnite

"what happened to minecraft and pokemon"
Umm, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon Let's Go Eevee? Does that ring a bell? I think Nintendo is just making Pokemon more and more popular by making and releasing more games etc.. Which Bandai Namco should also do (i think they are the ones who OWN Digimon) to Digimon (ignoring Xros Wars, Hunter and Fusion, I think Tamers sequel could make Digimon more popular too)

Yes, Fortnite has no admin, even Minecraft has admin

17 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.

Technically Minecraft Hunger Games did come out prior to PUBG and Fortnite, so technically they are both copying that in some terms.

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

Sure, fortnite DID come out before PUBG, BUT that was their 'Save the World' mode. Fortnite did completely rip off PUBG's Battle Royale format.

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

I hate FORTNITE. It sucks. I prefer games like The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon and Super Mario.

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.

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?

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

19 Every purchase is cosmetic

True. Absolutely true. If you don't pay FOR A FREE GAME, you get called a noob by 99 seven-year-olds on the mic.

Why is that a bad thing

Fortnite sucks.

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

20 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.

If it was teens and adults, fine. But little kids should not be allowed. Fortnite has a bad reputation because of them.

Then how do many adolescents and adults play it and earn so much?!

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

21 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

If you compare it with PUBG, that is. On absolute terms, it's alright.

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.

22 Weapons are either overpowered or underpowered

The classic raging kid who has a gold deagle but doesn't know how to use it

yep all my enemies had good ones and I always have bad ones

I am a pro with Blue Tactical Shotgun.

No, it depends on how good u are with it

23 It makes no sense

What is that purple thing that we're suppose to get away from? Why are we klilling everyone in sight? What'a the point of this game?


I get the "fort' part of the word "Fortnite", since you build forts, but not the "nite" part.
- Shiny Eevee 101

This game has possible the most hody graphics ever it may keep on going until forza horizon four comes out I thinks set in england.

24 Too many updates

No, every new update introduces new bugs, and they rarely fix bugs, so its actually not good.

It was made in 2 months, so of course this broken game will have too many updates

It gets updates frequently because they want the hype to live. Also, due to that hype, more people try to break it so they have to fix it

Can't go a week without a crash or update of nothing.

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

25 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

None of the skins actually give you a benefit or an advantage in the game.

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

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

There is worst fanbases out there like Minecraft,Mcu, Logan Paul, etc
