Just like UC Berkeley, “Fortnite Battle Royale” is a survival game. In each live battle there are 100 players who fight to be the last one(s) standing. At the beginning of the game, you fly over the game’s island setting and choose a spot to land. Because of names such as Snobby Shores and Lonely Lodge, we at the Clog couldn’t help but think that we’d find some of our favorite (and least favorite) UC Berkeley majors residing at these landing spots. So for all of our #gamers out there, here’s where you can find UC Berkeley majors in Fortnite.

Snobby Shores

There’s no one else we can picture here but Haas majors. Not only did Haas students get into the No. 1 public university in the world, but they also got into one of the most selective business programs ever, so we sort of understand why they think they’re better than everyone else. With snake-like tendencies and big egos, Haas rules over Snobby Shores.

Salty Springs

This landing spot is home to economics majors — and everyone else who had to settle for another major because of the ridiculous requirements and competition at UC Berkeley. In Salty Springs, you can mainly find the economics majors who were rejected by Haas but claim that economics was always their first choice.

Lonely Lodge

If you land in Lonely Lodge, you’ll most likely find EECS majors. EECS students only need two things for survival: themselves and their codes. With nothing else fueling their survival but those things, EECS majors will find themselves more lonely than other majors.

Anarchy Acres

Did someone say anarchy? Who else would you find here besides political science majors? At this landing spot, you’ll find every protest that has happened at UC Berkeley, but it’s all happening at once. You may a feel a little overwhelmed, but overall, you’ll feel empowered.

Pleasant Park

This is a special place for those who have found their passion and can pursue it through their major. Pleasant Park is full of the students who are just loving life at UC Berkeley. Kind of odd, right? But trust us, they exist.

UC Berkeley is a survival game between you and the school. With school out for the summer, maybe it’s time to pick up some “Fortnite Battle Royale” skills to make sure you survive UC Berkeley. Have fun gaming, Bears!
