A real-life Fortnite Victory Royale? See where Tennessee would rank
There have been theories on who would win in a battle between samurais and pirates to which superhero would come out on top in a duel. But ever think of which state would come out on top of a Fortnite Victory Royale?

Advertisement plugged in the numbers — they analyzed each state’s environmental, survival and possible strategic factors for each state —  and found Tennessee would rank in the bottom five states likely to win in a real-life Victory Royale.

Tennessee didn’t score a zero like Rhode Island, but the state was number four in the bottom five to least likely win.

Minnesota would most likely claim Victory Royale, with a perfect score of 100/100, followed by Colorado and Kansas.
