Ranking all of the vehicles in Fortnite

We’ve seen a lot of Fortnite vehicles come and go. How did they all stack up against one another?

We’ve seen a lot of Fortnite vehicles come and go. How did they all stack up against one another?

There have been a total of nine vehicles over the course of 11 Fortnite seasons. Some are more useful than others, while a few completely broke the meta of the game (looking at you, BRUTE).

Here’s our rankings of all of the Fortnite vehicles from worst to best. This list is not focused on the most powerful vehicles, but rather one focused on balance and entertainment. If you disagree, leave us your list in the comments!

9. The BRUTE

We don’t need to spend too much time on this one. The BRUTE was the worst. Everyone hated it. The always-overpowered mech was the bane of our existence for the entirety of Season X – especially before the nerf.

No one is disappointed to see the BRUTE leave Fortnite. Good riddance. See ya never.

8. The Shopping Cart

The Shopping Cart was the first ‘vehicle’ ever added to Fortnite, although it isn’t really a vehicle at all. Once Epic started to add real vehicles to the game, the Shopping Cart was rendered essentially useless.

The Shopping Cart made downhill mobility a bit easier, but not much outside of that. It was good for the memes and no one really noticed when Epic vaulted it. Rest in peace, old buddy.

7. The Cannon

Like the Shopping Cart, the Cannon wasn’t much of a real vehicle. You wouldn’t ride it around unless you were goofing or trying to complete a challenge. You could make it fly by hitting a geyser, but it was hard to control once you got in the air.

The damage was never much of a factor with the Cannon, but it was a fantastic mobility tool. This was a relatively balanced addition to Fortnite that fit well with the pirate theme of Season 8.

6. The X-4 Stormwing

Planes were one of the more controversial additions to Fortnite. They were incredibly overpowered when Epic first introduced them but eventually received a nerf. The nerf balanced them out a bit, but they were always a menace in competitive Fortnite.

Adding planes to the game could work in a different setting. The X-4 Stormwing would be relatively balanced if it didn’t have weapons or a boost mechanic that shot it through structures.

We should also mention the fact that planes were bugged and would sometimes eject you without the ability to pull your glider. That was no fun.

5. Ballers

Epic Games

Ballers replaced planes as the next overpowered vehicle in Fortnite. They had too much HP upon release and were difficult to counter for a long time. The HP nerf helped stifle their usefulness but there always seemed to be 15-20 of them hopping around in competitive end-games.

Here’s a controversial opinion: I loved the Baller. It was a fantastic mobility tool and wasn’t too much of an issue in public matches once the nerf came in. You could break them relatively easily, but they always provided some easy rotation to a distant circle.

I was a Polar Peak die-hard, so Ballers were a frequent rotational tool of mine. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the Baller, even though I know that they were widely hated by most of the community.

4. The Boat

The Boat is among the most balanced vehicles that Epic has ever added to Fortnite. It’s a rotational item first and foremost. The rockets do next to nothing in terms of player damage and anyone standing on the back is asking to get shot.

That being said, the Boats are a bit lackluster. They aren’t truly effective on land and can get tripped-up by a small hill or obstruction. Boats are great for the game – they just don’t move the needle too much.

3. The Driftboard

Next up, is every trickshotter’s best friend: the Driftboard. These hoverboards provided excellently mobility and even better clips. This was one of the more ambitious items that Epic added, and they really pulled it off.

I don’t think anyone argued that Driftboards were overpowered. They were mobility-only vehicles when you weren’t using them for high-flying trickshots.

2. The Quad Crasher

The Quad Crasher takes the cake, for me. It was one of the best vehicles in the game – especially once players started to learn how to make it fly. You could traverse the entire map if you were consistent enough, making no zone too far away to reach.

Was this the most balanced vehicle in Fortnite? Probably not. It only sat two players and the ability to fly made it a bit too strong. Still, I miss this beast of a vehicle.

1. The ATK

The ATK will take the top spot for many players, even if it isn’t my personal favorite. It was an incredibly balanced vehicle that actually took a bit of skill to master. The golf cart could fit an entire squad and was a welcome sight if you needed to rotate to a distant zone.

In fact, I think the ATK would be a perfect addition to Fortnite Chapter 2. It’s the balanced land vehicle that we need.

So, there you have it. What’s your favorite Fortnite vehicle? What would your list look like? Leave it in the comments!

The 5 most hated skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite community is no fan of these skins.

Published

on

Fortnite skins have taken on a life of their own since the game came out. Back in the early days, we couldn’t imagine spending money on a free game. Now, hundreds of dollars later, we’re still padding our lockers as collectors of in-game cosmetics.

Some skins tell a lot about the player wearing them. A Peely? They’re just trying to goof around and have some fun. A Dynamo? Sweat is probably pouring onto their keyboard at all times.

Today, we’re taking a look at the most hated skins in Fortnite – the skins that elicit an immediate reaction from opponents. You better be ready for some backlash if you post a clip while wearing one of these skins.

5. Female Soccer Skins

Female Soccer Skins have been hated ever since they first came out. This might have been the first “sweaty” skin to come to Fortnite, and it remains in the category to this day. However, it’s been made available in the Item Shop quite frequently so everyone from sweats to casuals owns it.

“Soccer skin” means more than just the skin that someone is wearing, at this point. It’s a term that longtime Fortnite players will likely remember for the rest of their gaming careers. However, because of its frequent item shop appearances, it’s last on the list.

4. Custom Superhero Skins

These skins have cause quite a stir with players and have disrupted the competitive scene on more than one occasion. The actual name of these skins is Boundless, and they are among the most customizable skins in the game. Many players bought them for their versatility at first, but they were quickly abused by competitive players.

Players could set their skins to have an all-black or all-white color scheme which would make them harder to see. These color combos were banned from the game, but players still found a way to make their skins harder to see. This lead to these sweaty skins being banned outright in all competitive play.

3. Anime Skins

This category of skins is pretty new since “anime” skins were introduced in Chapter 2 Season 5. A bundle of anime skins was also released during Season 6 which contains some of the sweatiest and most hated Fortnite Skins.

Chigusa, Megumi, and Yuki are part of the Cyber Infiltration bundle, and Lexa was given to players who reached a certain level of the Season 5 Battle Pass. For some reason, players hate these cell-shaded skins and would rather face off against Soccer Skins.

2. Surf Witch

When we asked Twitter which skins they hated the most, a large number of responses included Surf Witch. It seems this skin is hated because it’s used by “sweats” and also because of its lackluster design.

Surf Witch’s design isn’t much different from many of the other female skins. In fact, she has a very similar design to Haze, a preexisting skin. Many players think that Surf Witch is a cheap rip off of Haze, and their hate is derived from their similarities.

1. Dynamo

Dynamo is – by far – the most hated skin in Fortnite, at the moment. If you post a clip while wearing the Dynamo skin, you’re guaranteed to see the bulk of your replies consist of something along the lines of, “Dynamo, ew.”

We’re not exactly sure why Dynamo has its status as the most hated skin in Fortnite. Perhaps, it’s because Dynamo a very sweaty skin that isn’t difficult to get. Unlike Crystal and Aura, a lot of players think Dynamo is, simply, a bad skin on top of the fact that it’s incredibly sweaty.

Whatever the reason, wearing a Dynamo skin puts a target on your back. If you hit the island wearing Dynamo, then you better be as good as the skin suggests you are.

Epic Games

Does this list mean that you shouldn’t be wearing these skins in Fortnite? Absolutely not. In fact, a lot of players like playing the role of an antagonist in all sorts of games. It can be fun. Wear whatever you want – these are just some of the skins that are in the community’s crosshairs at the moment. We’re sure that it will change in the future. Wear what you want and have fun!
