Fortnite memes: the famous Drake meme shows a player in Fortnite collapsing and dropping lots of weapons

Reviving buddies

I wouldn’t know much about this one, as I rarely ever survive longer than my pals. But, I’m sure this is how they feel when I actually manage to scavenge anything better than a pistol. It might not be nice, but you’ve got to do whatever it takes to win right?

Bad at Fortnite

If ever a meme spoke to me… I love Fortnite, but every season when I drop back in I’m reminded that time is a cruel mistress, and my old hands just can’t spin around quick enough to actually hit any of the ten-year-old sweats who live and breathe the game. So unless I’m logging in to spend way too much money on Avatar The Last Airbender skins, sometimes it pays to leave the game alone. I get shouted at enough in my real life, I don’t need actual children doing it in my spare time.

Tilted Towers

We all have our favorite spots. For me, it’s curled up on my sofa, Switch in hand, beverage in reach, and anime on the television. Well for a lot of Fortnite players, it’s the area known as Tilted Towers (as and when it’s available, since it’s a Fortnite OG POI), so that means it’s a hell of a gambit landing there. The search for guns is tough enough at the best of times, but it gets even more heated when every player and their moms have dived into the fan-favorite zone.

Fortnite memes: a man holds his hsnads over his wife's face, only to reveal he has won at Fortnite

The wife surprise

Imagine it. You’ve been with your loving husband for years, you’ve built a life together, and now he’s spending a lot of his time on the Switch instead of paying you attention. The dishes are piling up, the bills need sorting, and just for once you would really love a back rub after slaving over a stove for hours to make his favorite meals. He shouts “Honey, I’ve got a surprise for you, cover your eyes” and you run into the living room with the vague hope that this smelly man has done anything redeeming with his day. At least he’s number one somewhere, right?

But no, he lifts his hands to excitedly to reveal that he has finally managed to win the game he’s been playing for months, finally defeating enough prepubescent kids to claim victory royale. Maybe Sarah was right, divorce is always an option.

Fortnite memes: Spongebob smacks frantically on wood

No build?

Look, I can barely shoot at the best of times, so the odd kill I get is a victory in and of itself. So when I finally manage to nail a shot, is there anything more disheartening than watching your opponent popping up planks like Bob the Builder on too many cups of coffee? Thank god for no build mode.

Fortnite memes: Homer from The Simpsons backs into a hedge

Hedging your bets

If anyone is unlucky enough to have me on their team, god forbid I somehow survive until the end. I’ve got all the drive of the Cowardly Lion, and as long as I’ve got something with a longer scope than a shotgun, I’ll be hanging out in the wilderness like Bear Grylls, poking out my barrel and shooting wildly, hoping my opponent accidentally wanders into my sights. Can’t say I’ve won too many games with this strategy, though.

Well, that’s it for now folks, we hope you enjoyed our collection of great Fortnite memes, and if this has got you in the mood to drop back into the game, we have plenty of great guides for you, including where to grab some awesome Fortnite Nerf guns so you can get an IRL victory royale, as well as the current state of the Fortnite map in Chapter 5.
