Why I Think Fortnite is Dying

Battle Royale

Soooo...I’ve just been thinking back on the days when I first started playing fortnite. New skins, new places on the map, an interesting storyline, new weapons, and just overall creativity are what I remember. Yes, Epic has added some new places on the map, Happy Hamlet, Polar Peak, etc. the best of which I think is The Block. I just feel like they’ve been slacking off. The places (other than the block) aren’t anything super creative or new. Happy Hamlet is just another town and Polar Peak is basically just the Haunted Hills Castle. I’d like to see maybe an abandoned theme park with rollercoasters and a Ferris wheel, or a new like high tech futuristic city, idk just something different than a town or a castle. The block is the only good addition to the map in a long time in my opinion. Next, I want to talk about the skins....😬 Yes, I like having a male and female version of the skins but I feel like it’s just copying one skin to make money off of another only slightly different one. Not to mention how they made THREE versions of the “disco people”, Sparkle Specialist and Funk Ops were the original male and female version of this concept and the recent addition of Disco Diva makes it three. Don’t get me wrong I like all three of these skins I just think it blatantly points to how Epic is growing lazy.

Ok moving on to the whole “storyline” thing. I know I’ve mentioned this before in either a post or comments, but I reeeaallly miss the storyline fortnite used to have. I remember unlocking the loading screens and piecing together the story of how the rocket was going to launch and then getting to watch it with other players and how it left the huge crack in the sky and how we all thought something was come of it buuut besides the cube nothing special has happened since (and the whole cube situation was a little lame to me) anyways you guys may not miss this part of the game but I sure do. Ok this is a long post but my last thought is on the weapons being added/vaulted in the game. First of all I miss the drum gun, in my opinion, I don’t think it had to be vaulted, it was a fairly common weapon so if you had one most likely an opponent had the chance to grab one also. I also miss the tactical smg, suppressed smg, and the revolver (don’t freak out I liked the revolver, ok?😂). Along with those weapons being taken out of the game I also have been disappointed by the weapons added in. Do we really need a quad launcher, rocket launcher, grenade launcher, grenades, dynamite, and a “boombox”, I feel like I’m forgetting some type of explosive but anyways, it’s a lot of them and I feel like especially the quad launcher and the boombox are unnecessary. (And if you’d like to see my thoughts on the addition of planes I made a post for that) I’d love to see a type of healing gun (don’t hate me Seige players) or maybe an update to shotguns instead of focusing on making a boombox😂. Over all the reason I think Fortnite is dying is because of the lack of creativity I’ve been seeing from Epic lately. I love fortnite and I think it’s a great game, I just think Epic could do a better job of keeping it alive. Anyways thanks for reading if you made it this far, love you guys and have a GREAT day!🎉💜 EDIT: ahhhh I’m so sorry to GreeenMT, I didn’t realize he had posted something very similar before I did, please go check out his post it’s a good one and he deserves the creds

    Rip revolver and drum gun the guns that actually did something

  • FeaR_RyZe LV.19 Fearless Jan 2, 2019, 05:46 AM

    Fortnite is just trying to add more stuff like the airplanes were from call of duty ww2 and they are copying almost all of their guns just to make the game better

  • Lyd LV.21 Super Star Jan 2, 2019, 05:46 AM

    I 100% agree, yeah just an overall lack of creativity

  • FeaR_RyZe LV.19 Fearless Jan 2, 2019, 05:47 AM

    They are just going to keep adding call of duty guns because they dont have ideas anymore

  • Lyd LV.21 Super Star Jan 2, 2019, 05:49 AM

    Yeah I don’t play COD (I want to though) so I don’t know how much has been copied by Epic but I definitely could see them having to steal other creators ideas tbh

  • FeaR_RyZe LV.19 Fearless Jan 2, 2019, 05:49 AM

    Yeah

  • FeaR_RyZe LV.19 Fearless Jan 2, 2019, 05:49 AM

    Lyd  Np its all true

  • XdasAlpha verified LV.31 Wolf Jan 2, 2019, 06:29 AM

    That's any game creator though they all get ideas from other games

  • Greek_GoW LV.19 Try Hard Jan 2, 2019, 06:39 AM

    The thing is about fornite it caters to bitching and moaning. The game it self before all this new stuff was about fortnite was suppose to be. Players could not handle the building skill gap that this unique game intailed. Made it differnt from the others.. Being able to put your self into an advantage over the other by simply learning the basics of the game.. To counter the building the fucked with the hp. Of the builds the explosives doing more damage to area.. C4s. Dynamite.redeploying gluider. Now we got boom mother fucking boxes. Litterly what will kill the game. It takes the game away from what it should be. Build fighting.. Now fast travel planes that's that shoot and rip through builds foh... Game dying. For sure. Planes should just fly and be used for fast trvle just like carts quads and atks...

    Drum gun was the leading Cause towards the Spray Meta, it was my favorite weapon during the time it was out but I’m glad it was removed

  • eGod XCII LV.22 Xbox Jan 2, 2019, 07:01 AM

    This is one hundred percent amazing. Easily the most well written and intelligent post I've ever read on this app. This seems like the kinda posts I make and I love that too 😂 great post!

    I do, unfortunately, disagree. I feel like, your right Fortnite is dying, and their losing creativity and getting lazy but I think the game has added to MUCH. I feel like we don't need another area on the map, no matter what the theme is. I personally think it's too overcrowded as it is, other than that though I do agree... But I didn't like the revolver😂

  • Arbiter5423 LV.13 Beast Jan 2, 2019, 08:51 AM

    I think adding more makes the game more exiting and new

  • eGod XCII LV.22 Xbox Jan 2, 2019, 08:52 AM

    Eh I don't think it does. I just think there's just too much stuff as it is.

  • Lyd LV.21 Super Star Jan 2, 2019, 09:21 AM

    Thank you so much! And yeah I 100% see your point of view! Except for the revolver part I have to stand by it😂😂😂

  • Kangy LV.2 Lurker Jan 2, 2019, 03:54 PM

    I mostly agree on this. I hate the fact that Epic just doesn't keep the game as alive as it was. (We're probably just spoiled on the fact that we get an update every week). Also I miss the drum gun and revolver, it was so satisfying when you killed someone with that pistol. I only disagree on shotguns though, I feel that those are definitely as how they should be.
