In case you somehow missed this detail, the sharks in Fortnite are, in fact, loot sharks.

It takes quite a bit of time and more than a few bullets to kill a loot shark, often making it a risky activity. That is, unless you have Dr. Doom's Arcane Gauntlets and Mystical Bomb.

Epic owes Fortnite fans honesty in Apple feud

For weeks now, two tech giants have been going head to head over what might just be the most popular game in the world.
