Fortnite players unhappy with age restrictions on skins


The arrival of new content classifications sur Fortnite Creative Islands has resulted in restrictions on certain skins. The players are extremely frustrated by this decision, which they describe as ” worst update in gaming history “.

Whether by earning them in the Battle Pass or purchasing them from the Item Shop, long-time Fortnite players will no doubt have amassed a significant number of skins.

With the latest Fortnite update, Epic introduced age and content restrictions for each Fortnite Creative island. While the age rating for Battle Royale remains T for Teen, some Creative cards can now be rated as low as E for Everyone.

Age restriction for a skin in Fortnite

Skins affected by the restrictions appear to include those with slung weapons or bandoliers holding ammo/explosives. Also restricted are several monstrous skins like Xenomorph or Hachis.

Despite all these restrictions, players struggle to understand how arbitrary the selection seems. Some cute skins, like Meowths, can only be equipped while playing maps rated for ages 10 and up because of their weapons. While the Michael Myers skin can be equipped on any map without restrictions.

Players also expressed confusion that menu music and loading screens were age-restricted. Since these items are only visible to the player themselves, they do not understand the rationale for limiting them when on age-restricted islands.

Epic even went so far as to change this season’s loading screen, removing all weapon imagery to make the visuals more family-friendly.

Overall, the decision was not well received. Fans have been open about their demand for refunds for restricted skins and this change even prompted fans to petition for it to be reversed completely.

Fortunately, the Fortnite social media team has announced that their teams are already working on the issue and to adapt restricted skins for use on E and E10+ rated islands. While this is a small step forward, they have claimed that most player outfits will automatically adjust to match island content ratings by next year.
