Sorry, I've heard it called that, its knowing to fire ahead of a target that's running and how far ahead of a fast moving vehicle to hit a person, it takes a lot of practice and new players usually can't hit you if you're moving.

It's called leading the target.

Personally I prefer PUBG. The map is too small in Fortnite for 100 players with everyone tripping over each other and the games are way too short. PUBG you have time to enjoy the game and scavenge for supplies. The map is so much bigger which gives you the freedom to move about and time to enjoy the game.

Think of PUBG as 'Battlefield' and Fortnite as 'Borderlands'.

Or PUBG as a simulator (with its bugs) and Fortnite as an Arcade.

PUBG has a bigger learning curve in my opinion,but they're both great games, just depends if you're looking for a serious game or a chilled out game.
PUBG is great and not that laggy IMO playing on the original Xbone. Yes it’s not PC fast, but then the PC version is full of cheaters and bots etc.

I'd agree that the PUGB learning curve is fairly steep. The control system is different to most FPS games, like pressing the left trigger to bring the scope up and not holding it. It does take a bit of getting used to. Then you need to know how to scavenge properly, where the weapons are likely to be etc, etc.

My first couple of games, I was still trying to figure out how to attach a scope to a gun, before getting run over by a 4X4!

Now I'm a few hours in I love it. No Chicken Dinners yet, but I regularly make it to the top 10.

Ok and building in fortnite alone is harder than anything in pubg lol.

Me too. I actually prefer Fortnite's art style and approach in every other respect, but PUBG wins out for me just because its pacing is more enjoyable.
I like both PUBG and Fortnite for different reasons, but the building in Fortnite really annoys me - I'm just too old I think to be able to quickly spin round and build a fort on the fly and always end up getting killed. My young lad seems to be much better at it than me though so maybe it's an age thing!!

PUBG is great but I only ever get into the top 5-10 before being sniped by someone.

I don't really know why people keep comparing them. They are very different. I play both and like both, probably preferring PUGB because the whole building thing annoys me. It's like comparing Battlefield to COD, I always liked both but people still insist on the comparison. Can't people just play both?

In terms of this deal, has to be hot. Still loads of bugs in PUGB. Can't wait for a final release!

Translation: I can't build very well, so pubg is better.

I preferred pubg and hated fortnite, but pubg is very slow, boring and 99% of people who play games are bad anyway, and they just sit for years and wait, very boring.

Once I played Fortnite solid for a day, best choice ever, fast paced, can always improve at the game unlike PUBG where there isn't really anymore you can do after a certain point.

He's clearing saying he likes both but prefers PUBG because he doesn't enjoy the building in Fortnite, never said it was bad, although of course people have to infer things to try and start an argument on the internet. I'm not surprised though. Why dont we all just be happy its free and people can try it out?

HAHA! Yeah that's pretty much spot on! I didn't have the patience to stick with Fortnite. I have a pretty demanding job and don't get the time I used to when I was younger to play my xbox.

I wish I could devote a solid day to a game like the good old days. Last time I could properly do that was on Golden Eye I think!

Might give it another go in the future as the price is right, lol! When I type 'aite' it auto corrects to either ate or site, LOL.

This is literally EXACTLY the same as me lol!
Another thing I hate in Fortnite is people constantly jumping around to avoid being shot. I get why they do it but it just bugs me big time.

BTW, does anyone else think aiming on PUBG Xbox is much more difficult than on PC?
Cheers OP my kids have been wanting to try this, as they're both hooked on Fortnite and wanted to see the difference.

Most FPS / Shooter games are easier on the PC as when aiming using the mouse its much more accurate and easier
I play Fortnite and Pubg.

Pubg is an amazing game with a lot more depth than Fortnite. The map is a lot bigger and more detailed with vehicles and attachments. It did suffer with lag in the early days but runs great now (xb1x)

Fortnite is better for younger kids. I love it but its a bit dull in comparison. Its more polished as its a finished game where pubg is still not complete.
This would be awesome if the Xbox version wasn't a complete mess.

I disagree actually, PUBG is easier if you've played any serious shooter before, it's super easy to get into the last 10, just drive around in a car. Fornite's building mechanics takes a while to pick up for newbies.

Not sure it's suitable for kids. It's rated 16+.
Awesome, well worth giving this a go if you've yet to play and aren't sure on whether it would be your cup of tea

+1, I won’t let my 11 year old play on it, far too realistic/too much blood for the young ones. I told him it’s the adult version of Fortnite which is about right IMO.

I would think it’s only free to play over the 3 days, I imagine after that you will need to pay for it.

It is better than fortnite, in my opinion.

I've played both on Xbox, fortnite has more of a children's feel to it. Pubg is more real life. Still get occasional frame rate issues, but all in all its a great game. Can't stop playing it.

Everyone I know has all but abandoned their other games and we are pretty much addicted to this game, for better or worse.
