In a recent episode of the H3 Podcast, Tyler "Ninja" Belvins detailed the reasoning behind why he believes that Fortnite Battle Royale takes more skill than Player Unknowns Battlegrounds (PUBG).

Fortnite Battle Royale and Player Unknowns Battlegrounds (PUBG) are the two leaders in the massively popular battle royale genre that has taken over the video game industry. Both games sport millions of players and have become two of the most popular sources of content for Twitch streamers and YouTubers. With control over one of the largest slices of today's video game industry at stake, Fortnite and PUBG are in stiff competition with one another to be the best battle royale game on the market. This competition has spilled over to both fanbases, as each one does its best to point out how their preferred game takes more skill in order to be talented at playing it. 

This argument recently got a major opinion thrown in by the way of insanely popular Fortnite Twitch streamer Tyler "Ninja" Belvins who also has competed as a professional PUBG player for Luminosity Gaming. Ninja stated in a recent interview with the H3 Podcast that he believes that Fortnite requires more skill in order to be a talented player at the popular battle royale game. 

"A lot of people are like, PUBG requires so much more skill because there is no building. Exact Opposite," said Ninja. "If someone in PUBG sees you from a mile away with a 15x scope, they can hide in a building and kill you. It's not difficult to shoot a gun and kill somebody. Gun skill is never the main reason why someone is talented at a game. It's literally their decision making." 

With many players not taking advantage of the benefits that the building mechanic offers, Ninja says that it is often the factor in deciding who will walk away from a match victorious. "The shooting is not the difficult part - it's building. You'll find that there aren't that many talented players in every game, so if you just build simple structures you can win." 

However, Ninja stated that he does not believe that PUBG is a easy game to be a talented player in, as he knows from his time competing in the battle royale title at major international tournaments. "The game does obviously require talent, but less in my opinion."  

While the debate regarding if Fortnite or PUBG requires more skill will most never be settled, it has gotten the opinion of Ninja, a player who has been considered to be the very best in both titles, thrown into the mix now.
