Spellbreak gameplay

This battle royale is unique because you collect, upgrade, and shoot magic spells at opponents instead of using weapons. You have incredible mobility that allows you to race around the map and collect what you need and also escape destructive spells. Unfortunately, the lobbies are a little empty and you’ll face a lot of bots.

9. Minecraft Hunger Games

This is a classic battle royale that was part of the initial hype. It’s a bit simple but you can’t go wrong with one of the OGs. A lot of players have continued to talk about this simple game.

8. Super Animal Royale

This top-down 2D battle royale has 64 anthropomorphic creatures fighting till the death. It features an old-school pixel animation style that makes it quite entertaining and fun. If you wanna be an animal wielding a weapon this is the game for you.

7. Hunt: Showdown

You play as one of 12 players roaming the bayous of New Orleans, looking for clues that will help you track down a monstrous creature that’s lurking around the map. The goal is to kill this monster, grab the loot it drops, and get out of there. This is a pretty stylish and dark game that will draw you in with its unique concept.

6. Call of Duty: Warzone 2

If you’re looking for a straight up shooter-type battle royale, check out Warzone 2. The gunplay is inspired by Call of Duty, including the same weapons, attachments, and other items. The issue is many feel Activision hasn’t updated the game enough and are sick of the bugs and hackers.


PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds is an incredibly realistic and intense battle royale that has teams dropping into a war-riddled location and taking other stealthy teams down to be the last remaining players. Its competitive vibe and focus on mechanical abilities has allowed it to remain one of the most popular battle royales out there.

4. Battlefield V: Firestorm


In this classic and simple battle royale, teams of soldiers are dropped onto Holvoy where they must use their gun skills and vehicles to eliminate each other while staying out of the fire that keeps engulfing the map. Firestorm has a lot of positive reviews but it’s still not the most popular battle royale out there.

3. Naraka: Bladepoint

This battle royale has swiftly become one of the most-played thanks to its intense melee-style combat. You play as one of many unique fighters and must race through the map to find deadly melee weapons like katanas and spears. There are also ranged weapons like bows to shake it up. No matter your playstyle, you’ll soon realize that this is a game that takes a lot of skill and practice, especially when it comes to the fights.

2. Fortnite

You can’t go wrong opening up Fortnite and dropping into the map off the Battle Bus. This vibrant battle royale is a blend of mobility, building, and shooting. While the gameplay is a big part of Fortnite, one of the biggest draws is the amount of crossovers with other popular IPs, allowing you to see anime characters, superheroes, rappers, and horror icons all fighting in one map. And don’t get us started on the dances.

1. Apex Legends

Combining the interesting abilities of games like VALORANT and Overwatch with the fun and fast-paced gunplay of Fortnite and PUBG, this battle royale has become one of the most-liked in the genre. Play as a unique legend with distinct abilities and race around detailed maps full of loot and weapons in an attempt to be the last squad standing. Choose your team composition wisely so you have enough defensive, tracking, and mobility-focused abilities to keep up.
