  • Horrible controls

    By Tdog311
    Fortnite Mobile’s controls are what make the game so bad. Not only is building completely useless due to how slow it is and the fact that it saves edits you make on previous structures for now reason whatsoever, but the button placement is so off for some things. For instance, the reload button is the tiniest button I have ever seen and is placed RIGHT ON TOP OF THE INVENTORY! So while you struggle to tap the tiny button, you will inevitably fire your weapon several times and give your position away. Another stupid mechanic in the game is auto-weapon pickup and automatic door opening. Why would anyone want to pick up every weapon lying around? Also, it’s impossible to sneak around a building because the game will open up every door you pass automatically and once again give your position away. Another thing is that walking around is nearly impossible because you get stuck on the tiniest corners and have to walk down stairs facing forward or you will struggle even more to move. The aiming is pitiful gunfights are pitiful. If you kill someone, it’s not because you were good, it’s because they were just worse or got unlucky since, once again, the controls hinder your play style. Keep in mind, I’ve run into all of these problems in the first 3 games I’ve played and the other Battle Royale games at least let you customize your panel so you can make buttons whatever size fits you and place things where they need to be. Epic, come on, you can do better than this.
  • Bad controls and bad graphics

    I am not rating this game a 5 star i give it a two. I am a big Fortnite fan with 800 wins on pc and xbox and I thought that Fortnite IOS would be an alternative to dragging my expensive gaming computer to where I want to go. No I have a problem with the controls. The controls are way to small and it is very hard to reload and open up your building map without accidentally firing your weapon and giving away your position. Sometimes if you are very clueless and are walking around with an RPG and open building you could explode yourself. I have a few other problems with this game. It is impossible to crouch sneak inside a building because doors automatically open and the enemy you are hiding from will be alerted to your location. The graphics are very bad in this game and I am sick of it. I am used to playing on a 1080 ti pc and the graphics are outstanding. On my iPhone X the graphics are awful. The coloring is awful and the game looks like a knock off. My iPhone X says it can run 1080 graphics but it only runs 720 and if you turn 1080 on the game will lag. The app takes up too much space on your phone which is not a problem for me but it can be for others. The app uses too much battery if you are using your mobile data and has drained my phone from 73 percent to 7 percent in less than 45 minutes. I like the concept of pc and console games coming to mobile but Epic should have spent a little more time developing this game for IOS.
  • Great game just want graphic settings and controller support

    By ɑատօʍҽ
    So I love Fortnite it is my favorite game at the moment you did good with it on mobile but we need graphic settings for Devices such at the iPad Air 2 because the graphics are decent but I feel they could be a bit better because I have seen the iPad Pro and the iPhone X graphics for Fortnite and they look so amazing and I feel that everybody should get that same experience and feeling of dropping in a vast gorgeous island and I feel like that would get more people hooked on Fortnite and about controller support the controls are good considering it’s on mobile but when you end up going agents people on things like pc,ps4, and the xbox one it is very difficult because they have the upper hand of being able to build easier and it is easy for them to swap there weapons or other things very fast and build a huge fort and engage in building fights so please make it so that fights are determined by who can fight or build better because 9 times out of ten the person on xbox ps4 pc will beat the person on mobile because the odds are generally not in are favor but any ways great game not many things wrong with it just needs graphic settings and controller support. And also season for week 3 for a mission is watch a replay how do you watch a replay on mobile because it does not let me access the leaderboard so how am I so pose to do it I want block buster and the loading screen.
  • Amazing Game!

    By girlygirlappfan💕
    I got this game two weekends ago and it has been a huge blast. I love the 5 teams of 20 mode. I had gotten 3 wins from playing in that mode. I really want you to keep it because I know tons of other players and big fans of Fortnite will love that. I also love the way you can organize your inventory so things can be within easy reach. I am super impressed with the art in this game. It is also fun playing solo, where you play by yourself. I tend to play this mode a lot too because there is no one racing against me to take my loot, unless there is another player already there. I also do not have to worry about teams that are winning! I really like how can heal your team. I have done this many times in 5 teams of 20. However, I have two small complaints that I would like to mention. The first one being that there are white specks on the screen that pop up. I have seen this in random times, so I can not tell you when they appear. I also do not know if I am seeing things or not. And it does not bug me too much. And the last one. The swings. Players that are new do not know that this can get you banned. Can you at least put a warning that this will happen to you if you go on the swings? Please? Thank you for all you have done in this game. I really love this game and will be keeping it for years to come. Edit: Season 5 is here! The new desert is awesome! I do not want to spoil everything so have fun playing!
  • Pretty good, but some suggestions

    By Catty Catty Cat
    I’m an avid mobile player with close to a 100 wins. Fortnite on mobile is a lot of a fun, and good because I have a busy schedule. This being said, there are some things that myself and all mobile players want. First of all, a kill feed. This would be very helpful for obvious reasons, plus, I want to know how far my snipes are! Second of all, the white hand icons that show up on weapons, meds, chests, and ammo crates need to go. They add lots of clutter that making looting a lot slower. Maybe just keep the ones on chests and ammo crates. Lag is obviously an issue, but that’ll hopefully get better with time. Another thing we need is a more customizable layout. PC and console players can customize their key and controller bindings, so we shouldn’t we be able to? This includes the size and position of on screen buttons, and the transparency of them. This would be so helpful. Also, stairs are next to impossible to edit since the last update, and I’m not sure why. Fixing that would be great. Autorun is a good feature with the original method (double tap on joystick) and not good with the lock feature. It should stay as double tap. Render distance could be longer, but I understand that’s hard to do on mobile. Being able to change graphic settings would be good to minimize lag. If you’ve read to the bottom of this, thanks so much for your time. I know mobile isn’t a top priority but I really appreciate it.
  • I love fortnite console but...

    I have been playing fortnite since the Halloween event and I have loved it! I have only played on console. I was super hyped for Fortnite mobile when I heard about it but when i actually ended up playing it I was extremely disappointed. First off the controls are trash have a fire button don’t just tap the screen to fire. I also hate the auto pickup which you need to go into settings to change, speaking of settings you can’t turn cross play off. Plus the auto opening a door is really annoying! The reload button is too small. Now other than the controls the laggy servers are horrible! And there isn’t even save the world on mobile either! And on top of all this it still has all the problems the normal platform game has like tilted towers being to crowded and how because of tilted the gameplay doesn’t feel action packed. The weapon delay recently added is just horrible I hate it and it’s even harder to use those weapons on mobile! I hope you take this into consideration! So I wrote this review a while ago and I’m glad you did some of these things and season 5 is just around the corner. The game could be approved upon like making the reload button bigger but at this point all I really do is check the item shop when I can’t get to my Xbox. So maybe something added to mobile to make it more desirable to actually play a match would probably do wonders! ALSO ADD PLAYGROUND BACK PLEASE!!!!
  • Phenomenal Game but only 4/5 stars, why?

    By ibeastee
    I rated this game as a 4 out 5 because of its lack of compatibility, as this game can’t support devices under Generation 6 (IPad air, IPhone 6/6+ and below). This game is great and it runs very well on my iPhone 6S which barely meets the requirements to play this game. The graphics are amazing on this game and are even better on a console (Xbox 1/1S/1X or PS4/PS4 pro) this game over conquered goals that others games could barely meet. What I mean is that there is a huge map that can hold up to 100 players and Epic Games figured how to make this game playable on a Phone or tablet without the device crashing from the level of graphics. I believe that this game and its developers can expand the compatibility of this game to other devices and if this game can’t comply with 5th Generation apple devices then this game may not be ready for its full release but this may work out if its players use newer technology which I believe will come one day. I hope I inspired you developers of Fortnite and Epic Games in general. I hope one day I can start using my IPad Air to play this game that everyone can enjoy. There’s is also the fact of when it comes to the controls. They are very disorganized and when the developers attempted to make the controls more simple, it only made things worse such as: misfiring, poor building, and accidentally misfiring when trying to pick up a weapon or just trying to simply look around
  • Amazing,Fun,And Hard game

    By ReatiaryMink_671
    It’s like hunger games. It hard at first but when you start playing more often the better you start to get. You can pay for v bucks to get skins for your character,pickaxe, or an emote. You can pay for something called save the world but it’s not on mobile... yet. The game can be really addictive but really frustrating when you die. You can buy the battle pass it has skins, v-bucks, emotes. But the free pass does not have a single skin. This is the thing that I hate the most... it’s a battery vampire. Okay so I was like 85%, but when I play one round it was 33%. I mean you can make it less a vampire by making it low quality but what if someone wants it high quality that will be hard cause the battery will go down very quickly. The game has many modes which I love! And i also love that you can play with friends, even if your on mobile you can play with Xbox one,PS4,computer,and Nintendo switch players. There are many great weapons, and I’m glad you added golf carts. So good job EPIC! Keep working hard on the game. Keep the game fun and amazing! Edit: I found a glitch where I can’t interact with anything I don’t know how it works but I don’t like it. I mean I can shoot and hit with my pickaxe, it’s just I can’t like pickup or open things. I hate the most about I can’t revive people ;-;. I hope you can fix this Epic. But still it’s a really fun game!
  • Needs Improvements Very Frustrating

    By SmartyPants🤓
    Fortnite is a great game and I like playing it but it’s so annoying because of all of the updates. Like I know you wanna improve the game but the constant updates preventing me from playing the game are very annoying. The lagging needs to be fixed! It’s frustrating when I encounter someone and I can’t pick up a weapon and fire at the because I keep lagging back and forth and end up getting eliminated. The login time to actually get in the match is very slow and sometimes it takes so long that the battle bus has already taken off and is in its final seconds to jump out. The lagging before I shoot someone is annoying to because it freezes then I end up getting eliminated. Sometimes it’s so bad that it ends up locking my character in running mode and I can’t do anything about it. I try to press the home button it doesn’t work, I try the sleep button on my phone it doesn’t work. Everything else on my screen works though. The time changes the other characters move around me but I can’t control my player when it’s like that. I can’t even control my phone. Then all of a sudden the buttons I pressed to try and unfreeze it function all at once. Also STOP TAKING OUT GAME MODES! You guys come up with really great game modes like blitz, sniper shootout, and solid gold. But it’s really annoying and pointless when you keep them for like a week and then take them out. Please fix these things and the game would be more enjoyable.
  • Not ready

    By dogdrop101
    The only four things that are bad is that it ends up crashing when I get into the game. It just started when you guys updated it. Sometimes when I just land on a building or even before that. The second to last thing is that the shooting button is on top of the joy stick. And I notice that you tried to make it easier by having it be able to tap on the screen to shoot but for me it barely works. I could be tapping on my screen trying to snipe or shoot another person. So please put the shooting button to the right or in the settings put controls and have people be able to drag things where they want and have a test run with an AI. The last thing ties in with the thing I said earlier but when reloading a gun with that small little circle it could make you shoot and give away your cover and when opening a chest. I would like a button that opens the chest. For example I try to open a chest and I try again and again then I destroy the chest. One more thing is the 50v50. It was the most fun I ever had on fortnite and yes I play on Xbox one. As I was saying it was fun. The whole team got together and built a huge for and one guy from the opposite team the whole team would rain fire on him. I would really want it back for good and not limited time only. Again I wouldn’t want it to crash that much.
