#1: PUBG Vs. Fortnite Graphics
Graphics matter a lot when you play any type of battle royal game. So when we compare the PUBG and Fortnite graphics, then we can say both have very different graphics.

Personally, I do like play PUBG as it gives real feel you are shooting the real enemies. What do you say?
#2: PUBG Vs. Fortnite Gameplay
Whether you are playing Fortnite or PUBG, your main motto is a drop in, loot, kill your enemies, and be the last man standing by playing Solo, Due or Squad. But, there are other things like weapons, gameplay time, and map size are different. In Fortnite, you can destroy trees, houses, walls and everything in between and get resources that you can use to build protective walls, trap houses or build your way all the way to the sky. That’s impressive! Enemies are also can be tracked. But in PUBG, it is very tough to find the enemies while PUBG let you boast realistic gun handling
#3: Fortnite vs. PUBG Maps
There isn’t any doubt that PUBG has three larger maps including latest Sanhok while Fortnite still has only one map. You can choose a map from Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok to play as per your choice in PUBG.

While playing in PUBG, you have to make sure that you are too far from the play zone otherwise you may get die in the blue circle if you could not find vehicles to reach the safe area. In Fortnite, the map is smaller so you can easily to traverse. If you are a Fortnite player, then you will have to wait a little longer to play in the new map.
#4: PUBG vs. Fortnite Shooting and Looting
Shooting in Fortnite is very simpler than PUBG. Once you track the enemy, just start shooting randomly while jumping and running. It will be the fun. In PUBG, as it has realistic gameplay, you will have to make a perfect aim to kill the opponent.
In Fortnite, you can normally see items glow a certain colour depends on the item. So, you can easily get the idea what will be the idea about. But in PUBG, you will have to go to each and every home to get a helmet, chest armour, shoes, pants, shirts and everything. There is no an armour piece or helmet in Fortnite.
#5: Fortnite vs. PUBG: Fun or Intense
Both games have the same aphorism, they offer a different atmosphere. Well, people play games fun, right? But when you play PUBG, it will give you the full tension at the end when few people are reaming and final circle is about to begin. While playing Fortnite, you will feel fully entertained by the fast action in a small area.
