Weapons And Items
Both games have a massive variety of weapons and items but in this case, PUBG Won, PUBG weapons and items are on a rarity scale – common, uncommon, and rare – but they are not clearly delineated by colour as they are in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Which battle royale is the best?
Fortnite is continuing to grow in popularity as developers introduce new content to the game every week including weapons, map locations, and various cosmetic items to keep players interested. Due to steam charts, almost daily 3,236,027 million people play PUBG while 12,475,772 million people play FORTNITE, I guess PUBG players are heading towards Fortnite now. There are a number of differences between Fortnite and PUBG.
Fortnite is light, accessible, and has a denser map, whereas PUBG is gritty, complex, stressful, and boasts an extra map – with more on the way. However, we would recommend Fortnite if you are more of a casual player, and not only because you can download it for free.
On the other hand, you should opt for PUBG if you are a seasoned shooter veteran looking for a more of a serious experience & BLOOD. Before Fortnite came along PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, was the king of the Battle Royale genre. It has the same 100 v 1 gameplay, but it’s much more serious, realistic and macho than Fortnite, more akin to something like Call of Duty.
PUBG does feature two maps to play on though – Erangel and Miramar – both of which are much larger than the Fortnite map, to the point you actually need to use vehicles to get around and stay alive. However, we would recommend Fortnite, Fortnite is best for those who want to engage in a form of the base building within a chaotic shooter that doesn’t rely so much on precision and realism whereas PUBG has the look and feel of a tactical shooter to drive home the uneasy tension of Battle Royale.
