Fortnite Car Meta is a Fortnite "meta" in which gamers play the battle royale by primarily using the vehicle from Chapter 5 Season 3 of the video game. The meta was released in mid-May 2024 and divided the community, with some fans begging for vehicle nerfs and a three-million drop in player count on the first day of the new season. Clips of players getting defeated by Fortnite's Battle Bus also became a viral meme subject on TikTok and X shortly after its release, among other memes about the vehicle meta.


On May 24th, 2024, Fortnite released Chapter 5 of Season 3 of its game, entitled "Weekend," which offers a whole new theme of sandy vehicular combat, similar to Mad Max, new skins and a new battle pass. A trailer[1] for the new season was also shared on the same day (shown below), amassing over 3 million views and 101,000 likes in four days.

Online Reactions

Fortnite players started to criticize the new season over some gamers relying too much on the sandy vehicles a few days after its release. For instance, on May 25th, 2024, Twitch streamer Ninja added his own thoughts on Fortnite's new season through his X[2] account, saying, "This season is absolutely dog fucking water." The X[3] page @FNcompReport posted the streamer's full comment (shown below), which garnered over 1.5 million views and 5,500 likes in three days.

The new season also inspired memes and viral clips on TikTok and X. For example, on May 26th, TikTok[4] user @svsavxxx.f.i.l.t.e.r posted a video using a car against another player (seen below, left) accompanied by the Did You Pray Today? remix, which amassed more than 1.7 million plays and 244,000 likes in two days.

On May 24th, 2024, TikTok[5] user @aquizzy_official posted a POV meme about Fortnite's Chapter 5 Season 3 (seen below, right), which received roughly 292,000 plays and 26,000 likes in four days.
