Two of the most successful and popular battle royale games are Call of Duty: Warzone and Fortnite. Both are free, iterative and ever-changing and both have engaging gameplay that keeps players coming back for more. If you’ve spent time with both of these games, you probably already know which one is for you. Or perhaps you like both equally. But newcomers may not be so sure.
Despite the growing success of battle royale games, there are still millions of players who may be on the fence about trying them out or threatened due to their complex nature. Since we spent a considerable amount of time with both Battlefield and Fortnite, we have all the details on which one might be for you. Both are great games that excel at different things, so you should know how they differ so you know where to spend your time.
Here is our comparison of Fortnite compare to Battlefield.
Threaten. That might be one of the reasons that keep some players from jumping into one of these games. Immediately, it’s clear Fortnite easier to join because it’s much less complicated than Battlefield. It’s not a blow against Fortnite – its simplicity is a strength. We imagine a newbie overwhelmed with loads of things to do Battlefield even before the start of a match.
The biggest hurdle to overcome in Battlefield is payload customization, allowing you to set up your own gear for use in a match. There are around 85 main weapons, dozens of extra options, perks, and different types of gear – all of which need to be unlocked. But besides that are weapon accessories such as optics, muzzles, different types of ammo and grips to improve recoil control. Many primary weapons have around 40 to 50 different attachments to unlock, so things can quickly get out of hand in the customization department. For a new player, this can be quite a change, especially if you are going up against other participants with maximum weapons.
Fortnite there’s also a bunch of weapons with different stats and features, but since they all spawn all over the map as floor loot, it’s easier to simply jump in and play – in When Battlefield Players spend a large part of their time tweaking and upgrading different weapons to maximize their effectiveness. Have a little luck getting in Fortnite as it always involves what you can learn in the world, but if you play your cards right you can get better gear.
Finally, merit to BattlefieldThose are deep systems, but unless you have an experienced friend to guide you through everything, it’s easy to see why players give up early.
Battle Royale games are fascinating because they’re always changing. If you have played Fortnite when it first came out and then played it out today, it can feel like two completely different games. The map has evolved, the story itself is like something you’d see in a big blockbuster, has a bunch of new modes, and has more cosmetics than you can count. On top of that, many of the in-game events take place semi-regularly, attracting millions of players to simultaneously experience each event.
Battlefield has also changed a lot since its launch, although it started to grow slowly. The main map, Verdansk, converted to the 1984 version to correlate with Black Ops Cold War, though the overall layout remains mostly the same. Interestingly, each annual Call of Duty release will coincide with Battlefield going forward, which means the battle royale will undergo major changes to its settings and weapons, depending on which major part of the series launches each fall. The biggest problem is that – although the game sometimes undergoes significant changes – they are not as often as the ones that appear in the game. Fortnite.
It seems every week, Fortnite Okay anything else new, whether it’s a new NPC to interact with around the map, an event, a mode, or a point of interest to visit. While most of these additions don’t change the game, they are frequent enough to make the game feel fresh. And every few months, a new version of the map is added, with various updates to the landmarks tied to the story.
The most frequent types of changes Battlefield received as its weapon, not as remarkable as a new map, NPC or mode. While there’s something to be said for the constantly changing game’s meta, it’s hard for a new player to get excited about an assault rifle getting a slight boost in recoil control. Looking at both games overall, FortniteUpdates of reality are more frequent, more interesting, and better executed than what you find in Battlefield. Maybe Activision will start rolling out more reasons to test Battlefield every week, but as long as it persists, Fortnite Get the cake in this category.
The most obvious difference between both games is how they look and sound. Fortnite includes vivid, flat colors with little focus on realism, while Battlefield quite the opposite (though still has its own style). Judging the aesthetics of both games is much harder as it depends on preference, but it’s worth mentioning Battlefield feels more immersive because it looks closer to reality. Immersion isn’t always fun, though.
Fortnite It’s great because the visual style allows it to include skins and cosmetics from many popular TV shows, movies, comics, and games. What other game lets you play as Kratos God of War, Batman and Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty? Due to the art style, Epic Games may skip adding any famous characters Fortnite. Battlefield has a fair share of licensed characters like Billy the Puppet from the Saw series, Leatherface from Chainsaw massacre in Texas, and even Judge Dredd. But as you can see, there is little room for change in Battlefield than in Fortnite on this issue.
When it comes to aesthetics, it’s hard to pick a winner, as we appreciate both for what they bring to the table. Ultimately, it depends on realism versus diversity. Fortnite definitely gets points for its large number of characters, despite playing Die Hard’s John McClane in Battlefield is an absolute treat.
Above all, arguably the most important aspect of battle royale is its gameplay. Are you happy? Is the moment-to-moment experience engaging and worth revisiting? Regular updates, beautiful art, and fan-favorite character skins mean little if the game really isn’t fun to play. Battlefield and Fortnite both are a pleasure to play, but the experience you will have on each is very different.
The main lesson is Fortnite Easier Battlefield, partly due to skill-based matchmaking. We wish we could go into the specifics of how skill-based matching works in each game, but their developers don’t reveal any information about it, to do not allow players to exploit the system. From our experience, matchmaking in Fortnite seems to be a lot looser, in that you’ll be paired with a wider player skill gap. Battlefield, on the other hand, tend to pair you with players closer to your skill level. Both of these methods have their pros and cons, but at the end of the day it’s up to your taste to decide which way you prefer.
In addition to the absolute difficulty, Battlefield tends to be more complicated Fortnite, mechanically speaking. Weapons are harder to use because they have more nuance and your vision is limited because it’s in first person as opposed to third person in Fortnite. Cash / currency is more important in Battlefield as your survival is usually based on the weapons you have and you need to buy certain equipment during the match. There is a greater sense of verticality in Battlefield, which also adds nuance.
Fortnite a bit more specialized in its construction mechanics, but even at its peak, how complicated it is to create structures that don’t scratch the surface Battlefield may have been. You have to take into account a lot of things in Call of Duty’s battle royale, such as your own (or your teammates’) footsteps, whether your opponent has visited the buy station, where the car is located, location player’s mind. while using UAVs and countless other situations. Even after spending a ridiculous amount of time on Battlefield – over a thousand hours – it’s possible to keep finding new mechanics you might not have known about.
Battlefield feels like the stakes are higher, and it ends up being a more rewarding experience due to how deep its system is. The feeling of making a well-timed sniping or a sneaky decision leading to victory never gets old in Battlefieldand for that, it has the advantage Fortnite. There is beauty in Fortnitesimple, but for us, Battlefielddepth of is much more satisfying.
There are a few other key differences to keep in mind before making a judgment. Fortnite has a clear advantage as it is available on more platforms. Pretty much every modern gaming device imaginable supports Fortnite, such as iOS, Android, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Battlefield, on the other hand, is only available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. So from a purely practical point of view, it’s easy to get your hands on it Fortnite as it is available on more devices. Not to mention Battlefield has a comically large install size on all platforms, making it a hard pill to swallow.
Besides, BattlefieldCheating’s problem is notorious. Things have gotten better and Activision plans to roll out a sophisticated anti-cheat system by the end of 2021, but it’s still something that could drive potential players away in the meantime. Fortnite no stranger to cheaters, but we see them less often.
Both of these beloved games are intended for two slightly different audiences. One is aimed at everyone while the other is for more mature players (however, that doesn’t stop) immature player). From a polishing point of view, Fortnite appear at the top, with more meaningful updates and less cheating. There are many appeals in Fortnite, which is associated with a lot of famous figures from popular culture. And honestly, it’s easier for you to get started Fortnite than Battlefield, due to the number of platforms that support it.
What you choose depends on your skills, personal preferences, and the background you have at your disposal. If you like FPS games more, we recommend you Battlefield. If you like digging into weapon stats and don’t mind looking at spreadsheets and maybe even doing the math, we recommend Battlefield. If you are simply looking for something to participate in semi-regularly without having to keep up with the current meta and other factors, Fortnite may be for you.
Both are great, offering completely different experiences worth trying.
