Fortnite vs. PUBG: Which Is Better?

Hands weak, palms are sweaty, arms are heavy. You have one shot. One opportunity and you can’t miss this chance.

The final moments in Battle Royale games gets your adrenaline rushing. You can feel your heart pumping. You have the enemy in your sights. You pull the trigger. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner…or should I say Victory Royale?

Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, a new type of shooting game where Call of Duty meets The Hunger Games. Now has a new challenger: Fortnite: Battle Royale. This game is kind of like PUBG with a twist of Minecraft in there. Who takes home the prize? Before we decide about that, let’s get into detail about each game.

Fortnite: Battle Royale has been blowing up in late 2017 and early 2018. The game has three simple motives: get loot, kill other players, and win. The game has proved itself as a fun arcade-like game. Usually, there will be 100 players in a match. According to Sophomore Patrick Kerrigan “Fortnite inventory is much simpler.” Also, another element of Fortnite is building. When you are getting shot at, you can build a fort— hence the name Fortnite. Juniors Alex Keener and Kevin Leon described Fortnite as an  “cartoonish, fun way of interacting with your friends and the game is just simply fun to play”.

On the other hand, Battlegrounds brings that realistic feel of an actual gunfight. As like Fortnite, 100 players jump out of a plane and try to find loot and weapons. Almost everything about gunfights in this game feels realistic. An example from Connor Woods, a junior, is, “As you’re running through a field it’s only a matter of one bullet to take you down. It can from anywhere at anytime. It truly adds to feel of the game”. Other people say that the recoil on the weapons is just right. A senior Gianni Romero describes it as, “ a crazy way of experiencing a realistic gun fight, even though it’s in a video game!”

These two games have taken over the gaming community by storm. There is really no way of telling who takes home the prize. It’s up to the person who is playing. It also matters what type of gameplay you want as a player.
