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

Yes, it is

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

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

Ah boo too too bad. - B1ueNew

3 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 could be fun in his opinion, Maybe you prefer to buy loot crates and supply drops to win - B1ueNew

Explain defaults then

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

Yes me agree thanos like fortnite but I have to agree *sad emoji*

V 49 Comments
5 Loot system is super unbalanced


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

That is untrue

I searched for half the game and all I had was a common ar and bandages

6 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

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

You don't have to pay for them, there just trying to make profit of a game they worked on - B1ueNew

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.

That’s true I mean there’s another one way too get chucks like save the world

V 53 Comments
7 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

Lol this sucks

V 43 Comments
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

Fortnite was made in 2011 but it ripped off battle royale

V 54 Comments
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

If you unironically want people to die for their opinions then you need to seek mental help. - Extractinator04

It sucks, end of story

10 It's repetitive

Like this list - MrCoolC

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

If your games are getting repetitive, just land different places. Not that hard - ethanharrisx

its sucks

V 12 Comments

The Contenders

11 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

Not battle royal save the world is over priced

V 44 Comments
12 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!

This list is basically the same thing over again, most entries are just saying it's boring and overrated, but with different words that mean the same thing - B1ueNew

Best game ever but epic games should add something besides save world which makes it boring after about 3-5 hours

V 4 Comments
13 You get shot mid air

This game sucks

It's super annoying. - Ottie

I jump up and somehow I get head shotted

@Visitor, So you think if you fly in Call of Duty you are invincible? - B1ueNew

I can fly in call of duty I have found a hack. (see next section) - SuperMiloX

V 9 Comments
14 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

I agree, if your kid gets addicted to something, you must be a terrible parent not to notice. - UmassLOL48

People are addicted to anything, drugs, food, girls, boys, socks, rocks, lizards, movies, netflix, mustard, etc - B1ueNew

Desktaquito- Yes

V 12 Comments
15 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

Already on the list - ShopkinsLover

V 16 Comments
16 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

Sucks it

V 14 Comments
17 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

These 2 reasons are already on the list (Overrated appearing THREE times) - KingSlayer93316

More like Battlefield - B1ueNew

18 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? - UmassLOL48

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

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

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

19 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

MINECRAFT WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER THAN THAT PIECE OF SATAN! 11! (Please don't take this seriously, it's a joke). - MrCoolC

V 62 Comments
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. - SpacedAtari

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

Man I played it and it full of dumb pay2win kids

Fortnite is for 12+, so why are first graders playing it! - ShopkinsLover

V 20 Comments
21 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

V bucks should be free and also Fortnite is so dumb

There is next to no way to earn v bucks playing but through the free pass which makes the game a grind.

Oh yeah I totes agree! - SuperMiloX

V 5 Comments
22 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

"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)

Very much agreed it gets way to much hype

I played it for half an hour and then got bored of it. -ShinyEevee101

23 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.

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

24 People talk about it to much

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

Did you even play it? , That doesn't make it the worst game ever, By that logic Infinity War is the worst movie because people talk about it - B1ueNew

Way to much

Every time I hear fortnite I die a little inside


V 10 Comments
25 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

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 - SpacedAtari

Fortnite needs to die. fast. really fast. - SuperMiloX

26 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

PUBG: Final circle! I better be extra stealthy. *after 2 minutes of endless proning and avoiding each other* uggh there he is! YESSS chicken dinner!
Fortnite: Haha time to dance and dab! Haha I am carrying 5 weapons! That is a suppressed weapon and this is whatever weapon! Winner winner chicken dinner haha lol - MChkflaguard_Yt

Agreed its too simple.


Simple also very repetitive - FortniteIsTrashItsTooEasy

Wait so you came to this site just to trash Fortnite? There are other topics. - Qryzx

The same could be said about pubg being repetetive. you jump out/drop out of a plane nto the map land somewhere get loot fight and kill or be killed and then either win or you don't. Pubg sucks to?

27 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

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

Respect dude

28 V-Bucks are hard to get

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

You have to pay for them if you want lots.

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

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

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

This is so true.

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

I am utterly shocked at how completely ignorant and stupid these top 10 reasons are. I am seriously wondering: 'Did a 5 yr old actually make this? '. Here we have just a few reasons up a reason stating: 'It's too simple'. But down here, on 'reason' 30, it states: 'The logic makes no sense'. I am so completely annoyed at this entire community and will never come back to this godforsaken website again. - TriggeredKid

31 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?

How tf did it even get popular - soccerobsessed

Someone's an elitist, I see - styLIShT

Mainstream means normal. what do u mean by it? its not bad because its mainstream, the people who play it are getting less & less mainstream by the nanosecond. - SuperMiloX

32 It was developed in only two months

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


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

Fortnite took a big rip off of pubg and just changed a few things

33 It’s Luck Based

Already on this list. - MrCoolC

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

34 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

35 Every Purchase Is Cosmetic

Why is that a bad thing

That’s not a bad thing, you pay2win loser! - MrCoolC

36 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.

I mean it is not fast-paced... its really slow considering the map size and how scared the people are - KifahTheSpartan

At least Fortnite has creativity. - B1ueNew

I could say the same for every other game in the universe by this logic. Its an opinion. Example: PUBG is not Incredibly intense like fortnite is. See? you probably disagree, that's bec its an opinion - GalaxedCreeper

38 It’s a Rip Off of PUBG

This list is more repetitive than Gucci Gang, Havana and Baby combined. - B1ueNew

Already on here. This is probably the most repetitive list I’ve ever seen. - MrCoolC

39 It's on mobile devices

Everyone knows that gaming on mobile devices sucks. - giorarv1

Marvel contest of champions and Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and 2 are good mobile games! - B1ueNew

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

The mobile version is awful - Hunterlane871

Fortnite sucks! pubs better
Fortnite gay

There is two things wrong with what you said. First of all, you're trying to say a pub is better than a video game. Secondly, you can't just simply call a game "gay". Nonliving things don't have a sexuality. - MrCoolC

40 The skill ceiling is absurd

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

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

41 Weapons Are Either Overpowered or Underpowered

That’s why Season 3 was the best. - MrCoolC

I know right. u might just have a crossbow and u find a person with an rpg then u would so call fortnite fair. - peter6503

42 It’s Addicting

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

I wish there was a parallel dimension where fortnite was fun and fair - SuperMiloX

Just like any other video games in existence. - MrCoolC

It's a dr ug. That makes people wanna play.

43 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

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

I can't stress this enough..

44 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.

Needs to be a better mode than battle Royale

Its straight up dum.

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

45 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

You died on fortnite, raged quit, and then raged all over this website - GalaxedCreeper
