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

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

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'd rather perform a faceplant onto an upright turd than launch this game ever again. - Xeyal

2 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

Yeah, and that's fun

It is truly luck based, some skill takes part in it but it is mostly luck. In a lot of my second place loses, it is because RNG kicks in at that moment, kinda like how shots don't register. A lot of kids say that because they are angry, but I am not angry, just a little confused.

3 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

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

Everybody talks about this game as if it is some sort of revolutionary experience. it’s been done before, spread out through multiple games. just because you put horrible graphics and a few “cool” elements in there doesn’t make it a game from the heavens

4 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

5 Loot system is super unbalanced


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

That is untrue

You can win with any loadout though, heck I've seen people win without weapons on youtube - B1ueNew

6 You get killed too easily

That means you are probably a triggered trash kid

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. - Ottie

That's called no skills of survival. - htoutlaws2012

People keep complaining that “they die so quickly”. That’s not the game’s fault, you are just not as good as other players. I used to suck and never get any kills, and to be honest it wasn’t that fun getting destroyed every game. But, if you keep trying, you’ll get better and have more fun.

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

Have fun paying $200 dollars for stupid character skins! - KingSlayer93316

Everyone that people dies to has the battle pass. - WorldPuncher47592834

Don't buy skins kids, buy food or a bucket instead becuase it can hold liquids and be used as a chair. That’s two in one! :D - P-51IsDaBest

8 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

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.

Fortnite came out months before PUBG... - judo8alex

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

Right now I am 12 years old, and I'm walking around the playground at school during recess. I see a lot of 9 year old kids playing and I come up to them and I ask them, "What are you doing? " One of them said to me: "We're playing Fortnite." And I thought in my head these exact words.

What is wrong with these people, they should burn in hell. - GodFlowey

It sucks, end of story

Not fun if you don't enjoy it - B1ueNew

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 - judo8alex

0 dollars is overpriced - B1ueNew

The Newcomers

? Matches are unfair


How are they unfair? Because you’re a kid that screams into a mic and just shoots blindly? - KingSlayer93316

? Building mechanic is stupid

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

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

The Contenders

11 It's repetitive

I'm pretty sure 'repetitive' and 'same thing over and over again' is the same thing


So true.

It is just a weird set up and they keep on making it worse o I have an idea, let’s add a golf cart that while driving you randomly get one tapped.

12 You get shot mid air

It's super annoying. - Ottie

This game sucks

I jump up and somehow I get head shotted

I jumped down from the bus and somehow got shot from like 900000 meters in the air

V 5 Comments
13 The same thing over and over again

Just like reading this list - OGCalzone

This game is so repetitive all it is is just getting killed in midair because for some reason, people who open their parachutes earlier than you, get there first!

Build, shoot, get killed. That's all it is - KingSlayer93316

Very true fortnite sucks...

14 Way too overrated

Yes I agree, kids are obsessed with it its all the ever talk about in school also whats the point of a game when there is no story to it, you just kill people that's not really fun

Fortnite is WAY TOO OVErrated. You hear the word "Fortnite" everywhere, at home, outside, at school and practically everywhere. No wonder why such a horrible game is so popular. It needs to lose some hype. - giorarv1

The reason is so true it had to be put on here twice. I mean fortnite is a decent game by all means but it gets more praise than it deserves. - USGC

It's terrible. Everyone talks about it in school. The graphics are terrible, they're just weird cartoon shapes.

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

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.

Every hour of the day. Every day of the week. Every week of the month. Every month of the year. Every year of the century. Every century of the millenium. Every enternity. Hopefully, Fortnite will die in 5 months or hopefully, less. - Ottie

It probably will, next moment everyone will talk about "Screaming at Your Neighbors". - GodFlowey

Everyone thinks Fortnite is better than any game. This kid came up to me, and said "Fortnite is better than Donkey Kong".

I got so mad because Donkey Kong is a classic that will never be beaten by any modern game - KingSlayer93316

I rather play the games Angry Video Game Nerd reviewed than play Fortnite... - Gehenna

16 People are way too addicted

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

This is a result of poor parenting. - MrCoolC


17 It rips off Minecraft

This is a reason an emotional lesbian would give

It is such a ripoff to minecraft like fortnite is so retarded

Yes, this is what I keep telling my friends, they yell at me (i accidentally voted for "it rips off roblox" because I didn't see this before, but I would've voted for this if I saw it first). Also, they think I'm obsessed with Minecraft and I'm not. And today they thought Minecraft and Fortnite were calculators and Fortnite could calculate more. - Ottie

Oh god. Ditch those friends as soon as you can, and tell them that Fortnite is the worst game ever - KingSlayer93316

Just because a game has a building feature doesn't mean its minecraft. Minecraft sucks and its graphics are trash.

18 The V-buck system is ridiculous

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

You need money to buy skins so I hate the V bucks system

V bucks should be free and also Fortnite is so dumb

it is dumb

19 Overrated and not fun

The hop rocks are just terrible, If someone attacks you while they have one and you don't, then you can kiss yourself goodbye.

Already on this list - MrCoolC

Season 4 is garbage

I played fortnite a while back so let me tell all you who haven't played it that it is terrible. for one the load takes hours of boredom. then everything is in the 1000's or higher (except a single backpack which was free) next you have to get first place to get any v-bucks (hopefully) if not then this game is a huge cash grab.

20 People talk about it to much

Way to much

That is the #1 reason why Fortnite is the worst game ever - AlexImmortal420

Every time I hear fortnite I die a little inside

People think everyone plays fortnite and ask me: 'How many victory royales do You have? ' If I Say I don't play they say I should install it.

Sooo... Yeah people talk to much about it.

21 Too many updates

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

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

It was made in 2 months, so of course this broken game will have too many updates - KingSlayer93316

"new update? cool! "
2 minutes later...
"I thought they fixed the bug but they did not! "
2 months later...
The person quit fortnite... - DominiusDarkKnight5

22 It takes no skill

People are aids

There is NO skill involved in it... Land in a place where all the noobs go... get good crap from chests like a dam blue sniper that shoots downward I mean come one a dam AR shoots straight! and once u get shot at build random crap until u think your safe then they throw a buggie bomb and u dance like... is this a cartoon I mean the graphics remind me of on. total copy of PUBG... but worse

23 It's too simple

''My Eyes! They can't take the mind tactics of just how simple this game truly is on my brain! '' - htoutlaws2012

Agreed its too simple.


Simple also very repetitive - FortniteIsTrashItsTooEasy

24 V-Bucks are hard to get

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

You have to pay for them if you want lots.

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

Ture V bucks are Hard to get And A lot of Moeny 13.49 For 1000! rip off it should at least Be 5.67

25 It makes no sense!


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.

Find. Shoot. Die. - DominiusDarkKnight5

Person above me ^^ Yes that is what a battle royale is 100 people drop out of a vehicle and fight each other to the death. If you do not understand that maybe you shouldn't be posting about it.

26 Only little kids play it

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

Man I played it and it full of dumb pay2win kids

And caused the game to die the same way Minecraft does. I can't watch a Fortnite intro without cringing. - MChkflaguard_Yt

Name one game that isn't for kids, and if you say call of duty Grand Theft Auto or team fortress 2 that is not true because the chat is just kids screaming and raging and cussing so don't say those games - B1ueNew

27 It's bland

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

Very much agreed it gets way to much hype

''Oh those wall textures look nothing special its bland looking compared to...'' - htoutlaws2012

Its true fam

28 It's mainstream

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?

Someone's an elitist, I see - styLIShT

How tf did it even get popular - soccerobsessed

29 The building system is ridiculous

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

Played 2 games, then quit because of the retarded buildung system

You shouldn't be able to instantly build platforms and walls in the middle of a shootout it's so unrealistic

This game is for ADD patients hyped up on Adderall. Seriously, it takes zero skill to play this game - you can just throw money at it and 'git good'. I miss Quake 3, the last serious competitive FPS game.

30 The logic makes no sense

Dude it's a video game, not reality - Phillip873

I feel like somebody didn't take a silent chill pill, and let out their anger at the community lol. - htoutlaws2012

Yeah like being able to build walls in a second? Yeah good luck doing that if you're in a real battlefield, you're dead and suddenly everyone realizes why Fortnite is stupid... and I mean STUPID

It's a video game and people (at least smart ones) aren't gonna go train to be in the army by playing Fortnite. - TheFlyingsolar

You just jump out a flying bus that's NOT LOGIC

There is no logic in Fortcrap. You just walk around, build, and shoot. There’s no backstory or anything - KingSlayer93316

31 The animation sucks

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

The premise for lack of validity sucks. (list) - htoutlaws2012

Yes it's terrible - DominiusDarkKnight5

I prefer graphics from 90s video games - AlexImmortal420

32 It was developed in only two months


They made it to ripoff PUBG and Minecraft. So, of course it took them 2 months to make this crappy game - KingSlayer93316

33 It's on mobile devices

Everyone knows that gaming on mobile devices sucks. - giorarv1

The developers just want more money from this I think to be honest.

It sucks on the phone - AnnieCallie

Why the hell

34 The skill ceiling is absurd

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

One of the good reasons made by this crap list. - MrCoolC

Is fun

35 People make a fuss about it

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

36 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.

Its straight up dum.

Needs to be a better mode than battle Royale

I bet you most of the 12 year old fortnite fan boys don’t know that this game was originally suppose to be a zombie survival game with building machanichs witch has bien in development for many years lol

37 It's violent

What do u mean there is no blood or gore its just cartoon you goonie butthole muncher

Apparently, a lack of blood and gore makes a game violent. - MrCoolC

There is blood and little kids are playing it

What hallucinate drugs are you on? There is no gore in Fortnite - KingSlayer93316

Really? your running around in a pink bear with a heart on its chest
That’s violent?

39 It doesn't give you that nail-biting feeling that other BR games deliver

I can't seem to have any fun. When I play games from Nintendo, I literally bite my nails in anticipation and worry. Fortnite I don't give any care for because it is always rigged, and I always die in the first minute!

So true. Fortnite is just a bunch of people jumping with shotguns. PUBG is a fast-paced nail-biting experience of tactics.

You either:
Jump around and pwning every noob and build random crap
Or die in the first 5 seconds. - MChkflaguard_Yt

40 It's not on Wii U

You know what's also not on the WII U Uncharted etc. Point is... come on man! - htoutlaws2012

Nintendo would never put this game on the Wii U (Fortnite)

I would love for Uncharted to be on the Switch though - KingSlayer93316

I also hate how it's not on the Atari 2600, epic games get with the times

I mean, why would it be? - judo8alex

Mario odyssey ain't on wii u but I'm pretty sure that ain't trash - B1ueNew

41 No vehicles

I agree pubg has vehicles but why does fortnite have none

Yeah and the cars are better than looking than the whole game!

42 It rips off Roblox

It's just roblox but you are a cold blooded murderer

*laughs to death - MrCoolC

Yup, I love Roblox more than ANY other game ever. Stupid little fortnite game that caught the world like they never saw a game before. FORTNITE SUCKS FORTNITE SUCKS!

43 It's not realistic

I prefer a certain level of realism when it comes to BR games, like in PUBG.

Mario games are more realistic than this decroded piece of crap.

Not even realistic. Irl when you break objects, you just get nothing. But in this, yes. And you can't quickly build irl. So this game is trash.

SO! WHAT! - WorldPuncher47592834

44 It features cartoon graphics

Yet another horrible reason, cuphead would be trash too by your logic. - MrCoolC


Lmao true it has the most horrible cartoonish graphics I've ever seen!
