Zombies Make ‘Fortnite: Battle Royale’ So Much Better (And More Deadly)November 9, 2018

In this mode, CUBE monsters, which are basically just zombies, spawn all over the map.
You typically only see gold CUBE monsters toward the end of a match, as the circle shrinks.
If you’re not in a very populated area, you can easily stand around and kill them to your heart’s content (completing the Fortnitemares challenges in the process) or you can avoid them.
This means that at the end of the match you may be dodging zombies while trying to keep track of opponents at the same time.
What all this adds up to is enormous fun.
Cube monsters (I still think of them as zombies, sorry) make the game much more tense and exciting.
They add a new element of risk but they can also work to your advantage since they endanger other players just as much.
In fact, I love this mode so much that I think there should be a permanent AI mode, whether that’s monsters like this, or some rotation of different types of AI bad guys.
Adding in AI not only creates more risks and new strategies, it gives you the satisfaction of getting lots of eliminations.
But in some ways, this may be the pinnacle of what Call of Duty has to offer; in some ways it’s the best multiplayer Call of Duty has ever been. In other ways it’s frustrating, with terrible spawns that leave you exposed the instant you’re back in the match. Like many entries in this franchise, some of this will get ironed out in future updates. The good news is that the core gameplay loop is strong.
