It’s no secret that Fortnite is an immensely popular and highly beloved video game but as is the case with many other competitive titles on the market, there are situations when players get annoyed by various elements or happenings that disturb them throughout the gameplay. And because we want to show you that you’re not alone in this ordeal, we’ve put together a video that highlights ten of the worst things that Fortnite players hate.
Campers are definitely the most hated player typology in the entire history of video gaming but the bush campers from Fortnite are a totally different kind of annoyance, because they can stay hidden in the vegetation until there are only two players left in the game and then jump out and kill them, ultimately winning the match. In conclusion, bush campers are the supreme nightmare when it comes to things that players hate in Fortnite.
There’s an entire cult of hatred built around the so called “defaults”, which means players who don’t have a special skin. These ostracized entities are said to be either noobs who are dead weight for the team, or veteran gamers who are simply “smurfing” the game, or, in other words, are hiding behind a mask of incompetence just to annoy other teammates. Be it as it may, “defaults” are amongst the most hated things that come to mind when asking a Fortnite player what really pushes his or her buttons in this game.
When your Killer Starts Dancing
Dancing and Fortnite go like peanut butter and jelly but there’s a time and place for celebration, and that is definitely not after you get killed by an enemy. No matter how cruel those impromptu dancing sessions seem, they start right after you’ve kicked the proverbial bucket and no matter how annoyed you are by them, the triumphant players will continue to perform these dances, gloating at your dismay and contorting their bodies in the most victorious of ways.
Drinking a Big Shield Potion Mid Fight
Because they are slower than the small shield potions, big or standard ones seem to be dreaded by the majority of players. It’s not that they aren’t efficient, on the contrary, but when you drink one of those due to certain circumstances and then right after that you find the mini version that would have worked way faster, you just know that you are not lucky today. So, drinking a big shield potion and immediately finding a small one is one of those things that probably keep Fortnite players awake at night.
Shotguns that Don’t Do Enough Damage
It seems that shotguns are the source of many frustrations in the popular game of Fortnite, countless players cursing the inefficiency of these weapons and swearing that they are losing matches because of them. Back when the battle royale title was first released, shotguns were a little too overkill so developers nerfed them in such a way that nowadays they are practically useless, turning into real memes inside the community.
The Rocket Kills You but Not the Enemy
In a twisted play of Karma, the beautifully destructive rocket that you just launched kills all life forms around it, including you, except it doesn’t kill the targeted enemy… you know… the person you were actually trying to kill. This horror scenario is not just a hypothetical one, the reality being that such unfair things happen in Fortnite with a pretty annoying regularity. Evidently, players are terrorized by these instances and as much as they’d love to see the blazing flames of the rocket launcher burn bright, they always feel like everything could turn against them in mere seconds.
A Chest with Terrible Items
Finding chests and looting them is a common fun activity present in many video games, but Fortnite desperately relies on you finding important and good items inside these boxes because it’s the only way of upgrading your gear, especially at the beginning of a match. With this in mind, you can only imagine how exasperating it is to run across the map and stumble upon the worst chest there is – filled only with garbage items and deep frustration.
Die when in Top 3
Reaching Top 3 in Fortnite is one of the most fulfilling feelings in the world but all this joy can rapidly turn into sorrow if you happen to die exactly when you almost reach the end. An avalanche of intense anger is the usual result of this happening, biting the dust right when you managed to finally qualify among the best players being the worst feeling ever. Game after game, the possibility to blow it when you are so close to the end really gets on a player’s nerves.
You Win a Fight But still Get Killed
Getting killed right after winning a tough fight is by far one of the most irritating feelings ever and in Fortnite this thing can happen quite often taking into consideration the ultra-competitive nature of this battle royale gaming title. Players are especially annoyed by the “defaults” that get to claim their head right after getting out victorious from an impossible fight, so it’s only natural that they lose their wits after such a terrible thing happens.
Cancelling a Potion
Using a potion or an item that has a timer and being forced to move just to cancel its effect when it only had a few seconds until completion awakens the fiercest of rages in any player. The worst is when you are in the middle of a heated fight and you have to stand still for the healing potion to take effect but you also have to avoid getting killed and these two actions simply do not seem to go together nicely, so you end up actually cancelling the potion and regretting this stupid action for the rest of your life.
