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

In my opinion Fortnite is actually an ok game, but I don’t really understand why it’s so popular. It’s just the same thing over and over again, and there’s little chance of you winning. I hope Fortnite suffers the same fate as figet spinners.

2 It is luck based

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

Yeah, and that's fun

You can land in the same spot two games in a row and get a gold AR one round and nothing the next...or you can land before someone, chop through the roof of a house and they get a shotgun and you get a health pack...

Its not luck its just how good you are

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

It's a glitchy mess

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

Thank you! It’s just building a structure only to get killed, and raging 9 year olds. I played it once, and I’m happy I uninstalled the game off my PS4 - KingSlayer93316

5 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

Yea, that's super dumb. At least make them cost v-bucks. - Ottie

noob I am

V 14 Comments
6 Loot system is super unbalanced


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

That is untrue

I would rather only get cosmetic crates on TF2 (one of the best games) instead of playing Fortnite - AlexImmortal420

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

No its becuse your bad

8 It's overpriced

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

0 bucks is to much money lower it to -$1 lol - judo8alex

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

If it was really overpriced, that would be good since less people would be playing it - soccerobsessed

9 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

Well Epic Games did help make PUBG (Or was is H1Z1, I don't know either of the two) and epic games always copy other games. The creators of PUBG even nearly sued Epic. Epic Should get sued for ripping off a good game. - FortniteIsTrashItsTooEasy

10 You get shot mid air

It's super annoying. - Ottie

I jump up and somehow I get head shotted

This game sucks

Don’t jump then. It happens in Call of Duty sometimes as well. Get used to it - KingSlayer93316

The Contenders

11 It's repetitive

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

It’s three steps:
1. Build
2. Shoot
3. Killed

Yep, and it’s an endless cycle - KingSlayer93316



12 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

I used to play fortnite since the BR came out. It was a easy game and slowly got harder because of all the tryhards and now its impossible to have fun playing with these tryhards. It started getting boring a month after BR came out. - FortniteIsTrashItsTooEasy

13 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

My school banned the word "Fortnite" because it was being chanted constantly by the legions of 12yr old fanboys. Saying "Fortnite" is equivalent to dropping the F bomb.

14 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!

Very true fortnite sucks...

Fornite just has the same steps over and over rips off PUBG and a lot of other games too

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


They do? - AnnieCallie

16 It rips off Minecraft

This is a reason an emotional lesbian would give

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

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

Minecraft is love Minecraft is life

V 24 Comments
17 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

Fortnites gonna crack - WorldPuncher47592834

18 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

Earthworm Jim will always be 6666666666666666666x better! - AlexImmortal420

19 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

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

V 5 Comments
20 The building system is ridiculous

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

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


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.

21 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

Did someone say "V-Bucks ripped off ROBUX"? - AlexImmortal420

V 2 Comments
22 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

cartoonish - WorldPuncher47592834

I prefer graphics from 90s video games - AlexImmortal420

V 3 Comments
23 Only little kids play it

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

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

Yes I agree. Only immature little kids play it - AlexImmortal420

24 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?+1

Someone's an elitist, I see - styLIShT

How tf did it even get popular - soccerobsessed+2

25 People talk about it to much

Way to much

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

Thank god I'm not the only one

All I hear at school is BLOODY FORTNITE
'Hey have you got fortnite?

26 It was developed in only two months


27 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

28 The PC version keeps crashing

10/10 IGN we'd like you on board our team of lackeys... - htoutlaws2012

True. I loot a chest, and BOOM! Crash.

Get a good computer

Terraria is better

29 The skill ceiling is absurd

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

30 It's bland

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

Its true fam

31 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

32 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.

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

33 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

34 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

This is the only one I don't agree with. PUB-G, and other FPS games are more violent than Fortnite.

35 It's not on Wii U

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

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

I mean, why would it be? - judo8alex

It's on nintendo switch - BoyGenius234

36 It makes no sense!


98% of the population dies so let’s jump out of our magical flying blue bus and become marry poppins with our weird umbrellas and start killing each other, because that just makes so much sense.

37 It rips off Roblox

*laughs to death - MrCoolC

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

Fortnite sucks Roblox rules. Roblox Is WAY better. Roblox is the best game and Fortnite should be ban.

Are you kidding me? Fortnite is bad but Roblox is the worst game ever - GodFlowey

38 No vehicles

I agree pubg has vehicles but why does fortnite have none

i agree

The map is not as big as pubg maps are u brain dead

That’s just not true. You can ride in shopping carts!

39 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

40 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

41 It's not realistic

I prefer a certain level of realism when it comes to BR games, like in PUBG.+5

Mario games are more realistic than this decroded piece of crap.+2

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.+1

Really. I can easily call games that aren’t realistic, but it was good, such as Mario, any fighting games ever made, etc. - MrCoolCnew

42 It features cartoon graphics

Yet another horrible reason, cuphead would be trash too by your logic. - MrCoolC+1

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