Is Fortnite Battle Royale a Pay to Win Game?

In this article, I will answer a question many new players usually ask: Is Fortnite Battle Royale a Pay to Win Game? Is it possible to pay real money and start dominating?

I have seen several long videos on the topic. The authors try to discuss this question just to make their videos longer. But for me, the answer is obvious and very short. And I am not going to waste your time.

Fortnite Battle Royale is NOT a pay to win! You can check it yourself: visit the in-game Cash Shop and try to find any item which makes your character stronger. You will see that all the items a player can purchase for real money or V-Bucks are COSMETIC. They affect only how your character looks. There are no items that affect the power of your hero.

What about skins?

Some people say that advanced Skins that can be purchased for V-Bucks give a player an advantage. Such skins may indicate that a player is probably a PRO. When an opponent sees such advanced skin he may decide not to attack such player.

But the fact that some players can lose the battle even before it begins is not a problem of skins and other cosmetics. It’s a problem of every player’s psychology. If you see a high-level costume and start to panic that’s your problem. Don't fault the game. The game can’t help you with this.

What about Battle Pass?

The Battle Pass and Battle Bundle also don’t provide any in-game PvP advantages. Some players report that they started to get better loot after they purchased Battle Pass. But it’s just their luck. You may find many players reporting that they started to get less legendary stuff after purchasing Battle Pass. Battle Pass doesn’t affect your drops. It's all random!

    The game is not «pay to win». You may play without any purchases and still be the best. Everything depends on how good you are as a player. I believe that this game wouldn't become so popular if it was P2W. Right now a lot of people all over the world are playing and discussing it because of this honest and fair free model.
