About

Durrr Burger, also known as Fortnite Burger, is an in-game landmark from the video game Fortnite. The design for the "Durrr Burger" has been used as a piece of viral marketing for the game as well as the basis for a ironic image macro. In September 2019, fortniteburger.net shock site gained notoriety online.
