Chapter 1 Season 8 was one of (if not the) best seasons ever. Balanced shotguns✅ Tilted Towers✅ Ballers✅ Good map✅ Good battle pass✅ Endgame gamemode✅ Fun new weapons✅

Glittering_Safe5986

Sorry but was not getting catapulted by a pirates cannon wearing peely skin not the funest thing ?


Informal-Parsley1041

Absolutely yes


zwel8606

I miss the pirate ship


obi-wand27

i was like 2 tiers away because i didnt play much :(


LordKiteMan

It was.


mindolyn_minea

Balanced weapons Boom bow: *I beg your pardon*


ahmeda9a

Boombow with balloons


mindolyn_minea

50/50 do or die type of thing


ZeRo_WC

100/100 for me I somehow never miss a shot


whichfighterwins

i remember at the top of one building in tilted a flint knock pistol would always spawn there for me and i would always die when someone landed with me cause i would fall off.


CsGergo2005

I beg u pardon but where does it say "balanced weapons"


Loomling

It says "Balanced Shotguns" the Boom Bow uses Shotgun Shells ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|trollface)


CsGergo2005

Boom "Bow"


mindolyn_minea

Trickery is the main ingredient


War_Eagle_Feller

I remember going on a 30+ kill in TR with the Boom Bow in that season. I couldn't stop hitting my shots with it and it felt amazing I still miss that thing; TnTina's wasn't that great plus, after not using the Boom Bow for so long between C1S8 and C2S2, it feel like I was using it for the first time again but it didn't have the same charm as in C1S8


whichfighterwins

>level 2ahmeda9a0 · 30m Blackheart lmao fr and the dynamite and baloons...was that season 8?


I_love_doors

He said balanced shotguns and fun weapons, not balanced weapons because the avengers items where op and so was the boom bow


Business_Different

Flintlock


FireTyme

still my favorite gun to date. sometimes i use it in creative and my aim is so nuts with it lol


ImPlaying3dsin2020

Boom shotgun*


TheFernando13

Don't forget the free battle pass, I remember how all my friends and I were on exam period but even though we decide to play because we were so excited of having our first skins, good old times :')


super_sushi_cat

You forgot free battle pass and the Air Royale game mode but I’d completely agree that season 8 was amazing.


AkiraKurusu27

Air royale is one of the best game modes ever added


Cassian_andor36

Followed by horde rush


Birth_giver420

And floor is lava


zwel8606

this one is my favorite


randomuserininternet

Best imo. Got my first ever victory umbrella playing in it.(started s5 but never even came close to a win before it) its the only ch1 umbrella I have and I have all of ch2.


Notyouraveragegeorge

Balanced matchmaking✅


ahmeda9a

Actually it was random matchmaking


Notyouraveragegeorge

Not last chapter. It was actually optional to play crossplay.


themecla

It was still random though


Tropotopolis

Really? Pretty sure that was never an option.


randomuserininternet

It was


DANK_F0RTN1TER

I completely agree with you. C1 S8 was a great season because it managed to marry fun vehicles and items with the introduction of arena and all the while managed to maintain balance and fun within the game. Some areas like map changes throughout the season could have been better utilized but overall, it was a great season that I thoroughly relished.


whats_my_name_273

Ok, but i still believe the tier 1 skin should be tier 100 and the tier 100 should be the tier 1


ApoIIoJon

I’m pretty sure this is true. Up until this point there has been no Tier 100 female skins and the community was starting to talk about it a lot.


mrgamebus

Nah just make it an item shop skin for stupid tryhards, luxe doesn't deserve a bp spot


Perca69

this is a first. never seen anybody say that the battle pass cant have "sweat skins" in them


whats_my_name_273

No, i think they meant luxe specifically


Perca69

even so, still really dumb


whats_my_name_273

fair


Honeydewmelo

I was cracked with the boom bow, and Flintknock that season


IWatchPeopleSleep

With the flintlock I nearly never missed. When it launched I spent many hours in Creative trying to get good with the thing by playing against my friends and it payed off. Alas, due to the gun being vaulted for so long, I lost my ability to hit with it :(


Artistic-Doughnut177

I heard that there will be a voting thing soon and I (think) one of them will have the flitlock versus the proximity Launcher.


randomuserininternet

Flint knock all the way


ViralVortex

Boom bow + balloons in Rumble was unstoppable.


Phantom_The_fortnite

Tilted towers getting destroyed. Check.


whats_my_name_273

neotilted was the best tilted towers no one can change my mind I spent 11 months recreating in creative :>


Phantom_The_fortnite

Yes


randomuserininternet

Thrash imo. Perhaps I judged it too quickly, but I played the first day of s9 then did not touch the game until s10


whats_my_name_273

:(


ArtiBlanco

I wouldn't say it was the best but its definitely underrated, the best part of it was the Endgame LTM. I feel like that season went by way too fast and people speedran the secret Vault Rune things near the end of the season so not many people got to experience them.


goodnew4me

I would have to disagree, it felt normal like any season. S3-S5 are thousand time better. I liked the free battle pass but they didn't gave that free battle pass out of nothing, Apex legends was growing at the time and they had to do something to stick the players. Air royal was very good mode but it doesn't matter because it came again after Season 8. The tilted was destroyed at the time leading to a start to downfall of the old map. The battlepass was good, conga and peely. Overall giving it 6-7/10. S3-S5 were purely the best


No-Necessary-8333

Oh dont forget it was also the downfall!


B0NBONITA

I played with friends so much in season 7 just to get the free battle pass for season 8, and then stopped playing in season 8 :D Still, got the ninja and the pirate tho


RoyaleAbsol

OP clearly doesn't remember the siphon removal and Fortnite having to deal with their comment sections on Twitter (and YT livestreams to a lesser extent) being swamped with the word 'revert' on every single post they'd make for the next 2 months. Also correct me if I'm wrong but didn't people hate the ballers at the time because they could bounce around and destroy builds with ease? Seriously, people hated this season at the time.


jazzmaster4000

As with all seasons. Everyone complains when it’s live and puts on the rose tinted glasses and nostalgically looks back while still complaining about the current season


SuitableMammoth

Don't forget the removal of stretched res and luxe controversy too


maxwelliam-the-first

I’ve always loved this season and nobody I knew ever gave a fuck about siphon, sure it may piss some people off but that by no means makes the season any worse in my opinion.


Minecraft-forever

It was absolutely my fav season, boom bow was unbalanced and fun to use but annoying to fight against battle pas was decent, luxe wasn't that good but black heart was amazing and hybrid is good too, lazy lagoon was 10 million times better than lazy links, sunny steps was forgotten, volcano was annoying but flintlock is the best gun the have ever added and epic and gold infantry i hated back then but love now, amazing season


Dramatic_Material_56

There are 2 great skins in that battle pass - Peely and Blackheart


nicisdeadpool

My first season good times.


certified-vamp

seasons 4-6 were better, also X


Sp0okyScarySkeleton-

are you a clone of myself? lol


FoxoftheLake

Season 4 had the best battle pass ever, I don't think I've ever seen a better tier 100, tier 1, and secret skin


Arandompackerfan

Not x


certified-vamp

yeah X, i loved the chaotic-ness of it . and the mechs, which i liked because they were unbalanced . i don’t like when everything’s balanced in a game i like when fun and op stuff get introduced like the venom and carnage mythics


Arandompackerfan

I loved x but I can't put it over 8. The treasure map and the new weapons were fun


ulanegoaway

This is also one of my favorite seasons. I hope they bring back the baller. Manifesting its return 🙏


rotomics_the_tv_man

Only sucky thing about it was the teir 100 skin it was kinda lame like you look at other tier 100 skins like ice king or ragnarok and see that yea those guys are teir 100 looken skins while luxe was like mhm uh yea it’s something oh I can change her color that’s neat I guess and she served no purpose to the lore at all but everything else about season 8 from chapter 1 was cool


Quiiverr

And the introduction of arena


Holdin_McNeal

I haven't played this game since roughly season X. I will come back for a bit if they ever bring back tilted towers or the original map.


I_love_doors

It was the best and the battle pass was so sick I'm still waiting for a skin that with beat hybrid to this day


rouivas1

cannons were the shit


SilverSavior123

It was a great Season but the "balanced shotgun" part is objectively wrong. Pumps were so far ahead of Tactical Shotguns that virtually nobody picked them up late-game. The power dynamic between the two was so scuffed that it lead to Epic vaulting the Pump next Season.

>It was a great Season but the "balanced shotgun" part is objectively wrong. Pumps were so far ahead of Tactical Shotguns that virtually nobody picked them up late-game. The power dynamic between the two was so scuffed that it lead to Epic vaulting the Pump next Season. Ikr? I also wanted to comment that, but I forgor 💀


SkullMan140

I honestly didn't liked it that much, the BP was just okay, one of the worst tier 100 skins, and it was the introduction of peely, so.... Also i was in a rough time in my life just when it was released so i kinda have bad memories of it :/


mrgamebus

I agree with the crappiest tier 100 but the rest of it was good


AcoHead

I wouldn’t say the battle pass was *that* good. I mean….Luxe was tier 100


Hilarfamgrace

OK so? She’s still a good skin no matter the tier


AcoHead

look at her and look at the other skins in the pass. Does she belong way up there with no real styles besides colour swaps? What I’m saying is that having a lacklustre skin like that at teir 100 makes me dislike this battlepass for making you grind nearly the whole season just for a skin that looked like an uncommon rarity itemshop skin.


RRDude1000

Yet og wick was tier 100 with no styles and nobody complained. He is just a guy in a suit....


AcoHead

It was expected back then. Fortnite skins could only be so complex as that, Luxe has no excuse because she’s in the same battlepass as BlackBeard and Hybrid


mrgamebus

She's an absolute crap skin


RRDude1000

Luxe is awesome imo. She isnt a flashy mess like many of the new final skins


Makhnov

bad skin: cool looking character cool skin: edgy as fuck motherfucker in 3 tons of blizzard armor


-_General_Grievous_-

Was thinking of this too. One of few downsides to this season. But people were so resolute on having a female outfit to be tier 100 back then. I still think they swapped Blackheart and Luxe their places. Because to have a pirate outfit to be the top tier in an adventure / pirate themed season is way more fitting then an average looking female outfit who does not give any adventure vibes whatsoever.


gk99

This was the season that made me quit playing. Terrible tier 100 skin, the "launch yourself out of a cannon and hit someone" challenge was fucking insufferable, this was back when most of Fortnite's characters were regular humanoids and Peely looked super out of place and weird along with Trog from the season before, and as much as people here bitch about it the fact that Chapter 1 had no SBMM made actually playing the Battle Royale part a whole lot less fun because I was always expecting some fuckin' no-life John Wick in the final two. My only regret is that I didn't play to get Peely now that Fortnite characters can just be literally anything and that I missed the last times Epic still cared about making things fun for the sake of it. I miss the creativity and constant change of Chapter 1, feels like that died at the end of Chapter 2 Season 3 when I started playing. Season 17 was a breath of fresh air, but now we're back to the same old bullshit like "ooh look we added zombies to the halloween season how daring are we"


DictatorShadow

8 was boring compared to every season that came before it


TBNRtoon

not really. it feels like the content was pretty on par. a new biome, multiple new guns, a new vehicle, weekly updates and map changes, along with a live event.


Necrokitty99

IMO season 8 was one of the worst seasons. \*cue overly heated arguments and downvotes\*


Arandompackerfan

It's better than any ch2 season


Ultraaaaah

drift mains are based


LightsaberDuelist

I already got downvoted for saying it was my least favorite of Chapter 1, cant have shit on Reddit even in a discussion post.


Secret_Natalie

Nah the battle pass was very lame


georbe12

The teir 100 battle pass skin was trash


SeniorBased

Facts. The pirate would've been a better tier 100 skin


bruhdhenfus

The battle pass was mediocre but hey I'm not complaining we got Lazy Lagoon


GamingGamer9

mostly good bp


Solomon2003

I remember everyone shitting on that season just cause of siphon so don’t start acting like everyone was happy


LightsaberDuelist

While I loved the ballers Season 8 was by far my least favorite season of Chapter 1. I’m still not over the disappointment I felt after the eggs ended up being Hybrid either.


iAmYourDad2659

Best season!!


acenface22

Bad tier 100 skin ✅


Treeproblems2

Back when controller wasn't so broken


F1RE_Eclipse

I still like chapter two season two more. It honestly was the best and I’ve been playing since chapter one season 2


Educational_Term_436

It’s probably was best in chapter 1 yeah but the real best season goes to Chapter 2 season 2 and second being chapter 2 season 7 acording to the player base


9YARDZ

I agree! I think this season 2,3 and 5 are my top 4


BartexJ

there was a new item every week too


SeriouslyUnfunnyguy

Season 8 was undeniably one of the best seasons


areafiveone

Totally agree and Ballers need to make a big comeback


CorbinMar

Ballers were, as the name claims, straight Baller as hell.


xcreeper12

My favorite season


Ech0-5

Also my first season playing (tekenakly very late season 7, but i played it like 14 days so i dont count it)


Yooviee

Ch1 6,7,8 are the greatest seasons ever, but 1,2,3 will always have a special place in my heart


OmatoYT

7.40-8.10 was the best Fortnite had ever been and there’s a very specific reason for it


ahmeda9a

I kinda like chapter 2 season 8 more.


OfflineMystery

if they switched tier 1 and 100 i'd rate the season alot higher, which sounds stupid but it was really annoying have luxe as a tier 100


ModdedGeneration

Season 8 was great, The best ever? Nah that's a stretch but i enjoyed it


DeadPigeonFetus

Sad that I started playing fortnite halfway through that season. :( I'd really like to experience the whole season. I also wish I bought the battle pass even though I only got tier 25.


Nuclear_state99

And banana boy


ZeRo_WC

Wdym good battle pass everything is bad except peely, the only good thing I found that season Us getaway and baller. Also I hate the letter 8


sPectreLovesXbox

The digsites were the best addition IMO I want more of those community things! (I'm aware the voting is a community thing, I just want more in-general.)


whichfighterwins

the only thing i didnt like was the skins that season the only good one to me was peely


JediJosh9

The best or one of the best skins ever PEELY!!!


TurboVirgin-Chan

Also when the squad actually played. Rip


swordsman0013

I totally agree i watched the movie and when i played the ltm i was like 'am i in the movie'


RickSanchez883

Both season 8s were great tbh


FerretBoi69

The battle pass was also free.


GarAndSho

Hoverboard too


Charger0908

I want more cool pirate skins


DolanDancc

Lackluster T100


anythig-

Omg yes, I couldn’t agree more, I absolutely loved that season.


agonzal7

What end game game mode????


Ganjaleaves

In my opinion Season 5 was peak Fortnite.


Dramatic_Anxiety_308

Good battle pass? Bro i like Key Master but tier 100 skin sucks


themecla

My GOAT season, my first bp plus I have so many memories with my good ol' duo in creative


Xydra830

Plus good lore and other good POIs like the pirate ship and the volcano, this season was amazing


RobinGoodfell

I'm still trying to unlock Luxe's last Style. Appearently surviving 25,000 opponents takes a long time, and taking a year hiatus didn't help me. But yes, Season 8 was a good season. I just wish I'd been as competent a player back then as I am now. I'd have probably enjoyed the Season more.


FortniteMomLive

THIS IS MY ALL TIME FAVORITE SEASON. I LOVED THE HAMSTER BALLS, VOLCANO, PIRATE CANNONS, AND THE BATTLE PASS SKINS ARE THE BEST TO EXIST✨


theartochokethe2nd

Eh it was alright personally not the best in my opinion, but I won’t judge you.


Icantthinkofagoo

Season 7 was where it was at


umg_unreal

Though I still hate the Jungle biome from that season I agree wholeheartedly


howardtheduck316

so mad I missed Peely this BP


YodaGlitter

Also “free” battlepass


Stormhound2101

You forgor banana


That1guy4269

I really think the only problem was the battle pass but at the same time, we got the tier 100 skin at level 1


Cubetrical

I feel lucky to have started playing during that really fun season! (I actually started towards the end of s7 but it doesn't change a lot)


Business_Different

You forgot to mention free battle pass


Danielsuperusa

Removing stretched res really soured this season for me when it released, but looking back it was actually pretty good.


Tatoretot

Forced cross play 🚫


BrodyTheBruh

For real though, we need Endgame mode back


S0larSc0pe

I didn’t really like the battle pass tbh, the exploration theme just didn’t work for me


Inspirational_Lizard

Yep, honestly all seasons 5-X can contend for the best season. 4 was great as well, but not as good as ch2 s2, or the current season.


r_ov-an

agree. the BP is fire!


Just-a-blue-guy

He’s right, it’s my personal favorite


Philosophos_A

Boom Bow:Let me introduce myself ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (Actually it wasn't that op like the Boom bow Mark II) I loved that season. Ballers was fun, the canons too! And i am glad I maximised Blackheart (I lost the last tiers but eh... I have love more than 5 BP because I don't like spending real money) I bought my first BP back 9n Ch1 S7 with the free vb 0f the free pass xD (If I was holding better I could had own every BP.... Oof)


fnv_fan

Luxe should not have been tier 100


Riley6445

“balanced shotguns” lmao u didnt play season 8


LT_Edd

Pretty sure I did but ok


Riley6445

bro tac didnt hold a candle to pump


LT_Edd

I meant compared to modern shotguns like the charge, lever and low tier pumps that do like 30 damage, the tac was decent and the pump did consistent damage.


Riley6445

they deal 30 damage cuz ur shots are ass besides of course shotguns from then are better than now (for the most part), tac had a x2 headshot and blue pump did 100-200 💀 tac was usable in season 8 yes but pump out damaged it too much to the point where tac was nearly unusable, people also didnt know how to use tac that well either so it was thrown away


LT_Edd

I never said the tac was a better option, I was saying that the two shotguns that were in the game at that time were much better than the ones today. Also I didn't mean literally 30 damage, im just saying that any sane human can tell that shotguns back then were much more reliable, because right now they are nefed to near uselesness, hell the epic pump does not even one shot anymore.


Riley6445

i never said u said that, i was talking about how they were worse than pump not as good as it the reason those shotguns are better is cuz nobody was as good as what people are now, but even then 100 pumps were too good of a thing pumps arent useless... u just cant hit 190 with a green pump and a blue still does 100 body which is insane for the type of shotgun it is (accurate and good pull-out) epic pump not being able to one shot is fine, it does 189 which most people arent 190 and above and besides it isnt like u dont have an smg or ar u can spray with meaning u could kill anyone with nearly any follow-up weapon (besides kymera ray gun) with 1 shot, the pump also does 108 which is absurd since it just takes 19 pellets to just body to kill 200-0


LT_Edd

Look, all im saying is would you rather have og pump or modern pump? Simple question, easy answer.


SuitableMammoth

Tac was garbage back then and completely neglected in Season 8. They received an actual buff in Season 9 from start to end with damage buffs and new rarities


Samurai_C

7 was better imo


mrgamebus

Crap tier 100 though


CorptanSpecklez

My favorite season of all time and this season 8 is my favorite of chapter 2 so far even though there’s been other great chapter 2 seasons.


frdrckmoyz

I miss the variety in biomes


Trixteri

no. it was the absolute fucking worst, apart from ch2 s1.


notkxngal3x

Don’t forget: free battle pass ✅


xiAlejandro

My favorite season was Season 7. I really enjoyed planes and the LTM for it.


MrCoolC

An update that didn’t upset everyone ❌ An event that actually worked ❌


Lexaowob

how is tilted a valid reason for that season being the greatest-


Latter-Pain

I played Seasons Chapter 1-4 and jumped back on Chapter 2 Season 88. C2S8 is the best thus far you can pickup teammates, park boats in gas stations to refuel and tame raptors.


RebelliousCash

Idk about the battle pass being good. I was quite upset with the 100 tier skin. I wanted a badass skin over a clean one.


Beat_Boi_Animates

Don’t forget one of the better live events


bananaboibrxyz

And cannons that launch you halfway across the map


Foxydapirate09

9


steelstrike6373

also the battle pass was free if you did the only good overtime


coolguyyama

The beginning of the end for casual Fortnite. The World Cup came and this game hasn’t ever been the same smh


RaitoninguOtaku

and... PEELYYYYY


Hawk_1772

I can’t say much considering this was the season I dropped out for a while but I will say that the battle pass was super lame, disappointing tier 100 skin, mostly forgettable skins excluding the notable peely.


ripbo0mbow

Would you say the boom bow was op or not


LT_Edd

Definitely op, but still fun to use


ashu71029

Anyone miss Treasure Map in Chapter 1 Season 8


Gusrex04

Idk why but I coupdnt play this season, nothing wrong with it I just hated it and cannot think why. I still completed the battle pass tho


Xperier

imo map was real messy


Pyer-Vevo-

I'm very sad I missed out on the Pirate skin for this season :(


jrrswimmer

My 2nd favorite season after S9


Fellowearthling16

No mobility will ever be more broken than the cannons in v8.0. When put in the sky, you could ride them across the map in 30 seconds, or just fly forever. And they were entirely skill based. And the live event was completely interactive and lasted all season.


WGVictory

I agree so much. Everything was fun, perfect, and more perfect.


verifyvenus

boom bow.
