Fortnite Mobile Now Warns People Not To Play In Class

Fortnite mobile’s portability has proven destructive in classrooms around the world, with some teachers struggling to keep their students’ attention from the battle royale game. It seems that developer Epic has caught on, because now the game says something about this hilarious situation.

As shared by Fortnite community manager K.L. Smith, Fortnite mobile can now show you the following loading message:

“Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class” is a reference to a now-deleted Reddit thread where a teacher asked Epic to mess with his students. At the time, he wrote:

Since mobile came out my students won’t stop playing in class. Idk if it’s possible, but I told them I’d write you and they didn’t believe me. Could you add this to the loading screen for a couple days to mess with them?

“Mr. Hillman says stop playing in class”

Lo and behold, Epic obliged. This likely will do very little to stop teens from seeking a dub in chemistry class, but it’s nice to know that the developer likes to have some fun with its fans, too.


  • Two buckets, one empty the other with water.
    1st offence, phone goes in the empty bucket till the end of class.
    2nd offence it gets tossed in the water bucket.

    That would never work as the water bucket is supposed to be a deterrent, one the little sods will prob call your bluff on.

  • So, Mr Hillman decided that was the most resourceful thing he could do as an educator?
    No wonder homeschooling is growing in popularity.

    • I’m sure the teacher was only using Reddit to browse, not to actually further his role as teacher. More than likely, the comment was probably ‘Mr. Hillman’ having a bit of fun, unaware his wish would be answered lol
