The Best Reactions to Fortnite Blowing Up

So unless you have been living under a rock, it’s been pretty impossible to avoid Fortnite. The Epic Games smash hit quickly became pretty much the biggest thing on the internet, basically pulling more players than populations of entire countries, from all over the world. Well, it would appear the end game is coming now, because it just blew the F up. Literally. Epic blew it up last night and with that, the internet has once again gone into full meltdown. So, just in case you need something else to do that isn’t staring into the black hole that the game got sucked into (along with all your hopes and dreams amiright?), we bring you a list of the best reactions from across the internet.

1) Reddit is dying rn

Despite it probably being one of the best marketing ideas in history, fans on Reddit are in full meltdown, and most of them are pretty mad. Mostly because no one has any real idea what’s going to happen now. 

But as always, Reddit does not disappoint with it’s wild memes.





2) Here are some of the best reactions Twitter had to offer



Someone figured we would all return to the days of Clippy’s helpful hints from old school Windows computers. 


And the memes are going strong…






3) Even the news is covering it now

In a mad turn of events CBS News covered the Fortnite Blackout on the morning news. In the UK, it’s one of the most read stories on BBC News, and newspapers around the world are writing about it. So if someone ever tells you gaming doesn’t matter, they’re pretty clearly wrong.


4) Apex Legends had to weigh in

Competing games are jumping on the hype bandwagon by posting their own memes in response. Big time opponent Apex Legends joked they were responsible for the Blackout, inviting players to come and play away the black hole pain.


5) Everyone has gone full detective

Seriously. Some CSI stuff is going down on social media. Like, basically everyone is saying that Donald Mustard, who works at Epic, gave a huge hint as to how long we’re locked out for. Basically, he tweeted about the Eiffel Tower which is actually a key example of how long a black hole lasts. If this theory pans out, then the game will be back about 7pm tonight, so buckle up.

Not just that, but the hole has been spitting out numbers for the past 12 hours. Some eagle eyed fans decided to put these into Google Maps, and turns out they are coordinates that take you to the meme of all memes. 

6) And if you believe everything, then Epic Games is leakier than a bucket with a hole in the bottom 

There’s some serious controversy going down as to whether Ninja actually knows ANYTHING about Season 11 after he claimed to have been playing it before all the rest of y’all. He put out a tweet saying 250,000 likes would get you a hint, and that hint was literally a black screen as he whispered the word ‘tacos’. 

Other ‘leaks’ have been new characters, weaponry, even chunks of map. But, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet right? Plus, if it is all leaks, then Epic has got a pretty damn serious plumbing problem if you ask us.

7) And all the while, Fortnite be like…

Blackout. All tweets gone. Just that live stream there to taunt you to hell and back. 


That buffering symbol underneath just wants to watch the world burn. Here’s to Season 11, it’s going to be wild.
