Last month we learned that professional gamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins makes OVER $500,00 a month by playing video games. The 26-year-old Blevins has 3.7 million Twitch followers, 5 million YouTube subscribers, and nearly a million of followers on Twitter. Ninja gained mainstream popularity when he played Fortnite Battle Royale with Drake. While Ninja mostly only plays Fortnite these days, he played PUBG excessively a few months ago. The 26-year-old professional gamer weighs in on which game requires more skill: Fortnite or PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and his answer may surprise you.
Are you Team Fortnite or Team PUBG? Why not both? But if you have to decide which free-for-all battle royale game is more difficult what would you say? Ninja believes that Fortnite is harder to play than PUBG, and the reason is forts. “A lot of people are like, PUBG requires so much more skill because there’s no building,” Ninja said on a recent episode of the H3 Podcast. “Exact opposite.”
“If someone in PUBG sees you from a mile away with a 15x scope, they can hide in a building and kill you,” Blevin continued. “It’s not difficult to shoot a gun and hit somebody. Gun skill is never the main reason why someone is talented at a game. It’s literally their decision-making.” This opinion is different than what most people online say because Fortnite looks more cartoonish and aimed at younger audiences, but there is a lot of strategy that goes into building forts and creating defensive positions.
“The shooting is not the difficult part — it’s building,” he said. “You’ll find that there aren’t that many talented players in every game, so if you just build simple structures you can win,” Blevins said.
