Fortnite Vs. PUBG

Running with guns blazing or BUILD BATTLE

With over five million concurrent players at any one time between the two, Player-unknown's Battleground and Fortnite Battle Royale aren't just wildly successful games: they're full-blown phenomenons. But when it comes to PUBG vs Fortnite, which one should you play?

Lets dig in!

If you’re into PC gaming, chances are that you already know PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but there’s another player in town and it’s Fortnite, or to be precise, Fortnite Battle Royale! PUBG is developed by Bluehole and based on the Unreal Engine 4 game engine, which the creators of Fortnite, the team behind Epic Games, also own and uses to develop Fortnite.



It’s no secret that Fortnite has more online player's then PUBG. PUBG’s playerbase has already hit its all-time peak and has fewer players every day while Fortnite is still gaining more active players day by day. This is probably due to the fact that Fortnite is newer and PUBG players are migrating to Fortnite like many popular streamers already did. Another reason is that Fortnite has already been available on PS4 and XBOX One for some time now while PUBG is only available on the XBOX on consoles.




PUBG and Fortnite are both battle royale games with similar mechanics, but when it comes to visuals they’re very distinct. Which one you find is better, however, is largely down to personal preference. While PUBG goes for a gritty militarism that feels more realistic, Fortnite is much more colorful and cartoonish – kind of in the vein of titles like Overwatch. It’s really down to you which kind of world you prefer to play in. So more or less it totally comes down to preference for the player.


So those of you who play either game i hope you know each map is each! (if not then i cant help you. Just kidding! map #1 is from Fortnite and map #2 is PUBG). But first things first, PUBG is a better map but larger doesnt always mean its better. Being so large, vehicles are required for traversal in PUBG, particularly if you're unlucky enough to land far from the safe zone. Unfortunately, using vehicles tends to draw the attention of other players, so if you're forced into using one, getting across a PUBG map can sometimes feel like a tense dash that'll leave you reaching for some deodorant.

Fornite’s smaller map means you have less space to play but it’s much easier to traverse ,and matches tend to be much shorter. 

A big plus in PUBG's favor is that it offers two maps – Erangel and Miramar. And there are two smaller ones coming later in 2019. The map you play in is random, but the variety here does keep things interesting and forces players to stay on their toes. 


Both of these games are battle royales, and as a result they feel pretty similar in terms of gameplay and goal: do whatever it takes to survive as the map shrinks around you. Whether you like to play solo, with a friend, or with a group of your friends, both titles will give you this option.

But It might feel like a long time ago now, but, Fortnite was once seen as a carbon copy of PUBG. Epic might have appeared to copy PlayerUnknown’s homework, but the inclusion of construction transformed the formula.

When it comes to the Fortnite vs. PUBG gameplay battle, building is the most important divergence between the two. In the former, when it gets to the business end of a match, it is important you use the wood, stone, and metal you should have stockpiled at the beginning to create your own structures and get a good vantage point. But building at any other time is fatal unless you have the skills: player-made constructions are noticeable, and you will be found. In PUBG, you have no such luxury: you have to make do with the cover provided by the map. Or just run for your life and hope you get cover! Like and share! Thanks! Till next week!
