    Looked them up and... they seem to be stuck to your character the whole time. They're just animated clothes. I don't get it. Then again, I don't get anything about fortnite.

    From the title, I thought this was going to be about something more political

    I can't find a good source on this, so take it with a grain of salt, but I heard that cosmetic Fortnite purchases make up like 6% of the ENTIRETY of video game industry sales presently.

    Watching LRR's Checkpoint, (where I found out about this), I was like: "Pets! Pets! In backpacks?!"... "IDGI?"... "I must be too old to understand WTF is happening in Fortnite any more, get off my lawn, etc."

    I think I lost track right after that Thanos crossover event.

    Think of Fortnite pets as like TF2 hats but for your back.

    See, now everything makes sense.

    I saw a clip from Jimmy Fallon last night (clarification: the clip was not from last night, I saw the clip last night) and he and some group of Asian dancer guys were mimicking all the dances from Fortnite. It was a fun video, but it also made me realize how out of touch I am with popular culture. I don't play Fortnite, and I had no idea who that dance crew was.

    But man. If Fortnite is on prime-time late night TV, it really has saturated our entire culture.

    Remember when Fortnite was a single player game about a zombie apocalypse or something? Me neither.

    I'll admit to being pretty uneducated when it comes to Fortnite. I just know it's the game that "everyone" has been playing for several months now. Are my initial assumptions correct that it's basically a whole bunch of players on an island trying to kill each other? Like a massive Warsong Gulch or something like that?

    Or are there things to do that involve people teaming up to kill computer controlled enemies?

    I would be somewhat interested in the latter, but not really in the former.

    I remember when it first launched as public alpha or beta, it was more leaning toward the survival / horde gameplay. I think the first reaction from players and press was pretty meh - in the earliest iterations the core gameplay was fine but the base building and reward mechanics were confusing with several systems piled on top of each other - which was reworked and simplified. When Player Unknown Battle Grounds became popular, Fortnite added added a battle royal mode as well and thus became the only free contender and gained its traction. Please correct me if I am wrong. (Battle Royal: Players are dropped in a huge map, have to find weapons and equipment there and have to fight each other in a last man standing fashion while the size of the playing field decreases).

    Fortnite Battle Royale (the only Fortnite mode anyone talks about) is PvP only. Imagine Hunger Games (I'm assuming you don't know Battle Royale, but if so imagine that). Or watch this:

    I can guarantee that if you got to keep* the pet of every person you kill, if they have one, there'd be a major uptick in solo kill counts. Imagine winning a round with an inverted pyramid or non-lethal fur coat of dogs and cats on your character. You'd feel pretty damn accomplished.

    *only until the end of the match, of course

    There should be an art mistake equivalent to tychpos. Case in point, the approaching enemy in panel 3 is casting a shadow towards the sun.

    It's almost like he took some sort of license to make the idea work...

    The world of Fortnite is in a binary star system. :p

    His shadow is being cast by the burning, shattered wreckage of doe-eyed pets.

    The Fortnite pets growl at opposing players when you are knocked down and I'm just yelling "NO SAVE YOURSELF"
