Claiming something as the greatest trickshot of all time has been done many times before, but this shot by Twitch streamer ‘HippieHabitat’ in Fortnite Battle Royale deserves a mention.

Trickshotting is almost as old as FPS games themselves. From the days of Call of Duty montages, to players clipping their wackiest shots in Fortnite, it’s been a phenomenon in the gaming community for years.

While the term greatest shot of all time gets thrown around a bit, this one shot by HippieHabitat has a real chance at living up to the term.

As the game was approaching its end, and the Twitch streamer was in a duel to decide who got the victory royale, HippieHabitat did something that was near on impossible.

Floating around on his Driftboard, HippieHabitat managed to get some air over his opponent, dropping a flip on his board before throwing an Impulse Grenade down to get the enemy into the air with him.

After the fancy antics to get his opponent disoriented, HippieHabitat hit a nasty quickscope to finish the deal. He made it look so easy, from the setup to the shot, which makes the whole sequence even more impressive, since it was clearly an incredibly difficult feat. 

While the snipe down for the victory was good, the reactions were even better. The afro-donning streamer got up out of his chair laughing.

Epic GamesThe Driftboard was key in helping HippieHabitat nail his trickshot.

“Holy shit dude, what the f***,” was all he could muster in celebration, as all words probably left his head after such an incredible shot. 

Even people spectating him were in complete disbelief. Player ‘Kylesudds’ saw the shot live while spectating in-game and gasped when it landed. “Are you kidding me? This dude – I clipped it. Oh my god.”

He tried to explain the shot to his friend, which was equally as amusing. “Dude, okay, HippieHabitat was trolling this dude, and he was on a snowboard. He flies up into the air, throws an impulse nade at him, launches him in mid-air and snipes him down with a Barrett 50cal. That dude had no idea what hit him.”

The snipe was spectacular, the setup was impressive, and the reactions were priceless. If the best Fortnite trickshot was ever to be crowned, this shot would need to be in the discussion.

Noah Beck & Griffin Johnson under fire for “cancel culture” comments

TikTok stars Noah Beck and Griffin Johnson are taking heat from critics due to their divisive comments on “cancel culture,” as told during an episode of Johnson’s “Sway Way” podcast.

Also known as “call-out culture,” the term “cancel culture” has become a popular phrase in the past few years as social media has flourished, allowing users to highlight abuse, bad behavior, or other negative actions from people online.

When these bad behaviors are brought to light, the person responsible is usually called out, boycotted and ostracized, causing them to be publicly shamed and often ousted from their professional and social circles due to the resulting backlash.

“Cancel culture” itself is a divisive term, with many believing that it outright doesn’t exist, as those being “canceled” deserve to be called out for their actions and that those who are “canceled” are never truly brought to justice from the outrage.

Still, others feel that “cancel culture” is going too far and is resulting in a toxic online environment — but either way, people are no longer willing to abide bad behavior from anyone, and social media has given users a platform to speak up against things they consider to be unjust.

TikTokers and Sway House members Griffin Johnson and Noah Beck recently spoke out on the social phenomenon during an episode of the Sway Way podcast — and their thoughts on the subject have sparked quite a bit of backlash against them.

“People are getting canceled for things that were totally acceptable,” Beck said. “I don’t want to say that people have gotten really sensitive, but at the same time, they have, and it’s like… there were some things that were acceptable back then that people could say, now it comes back on them five, 10 years later.”

“I mean, I’ve done some things in my past where they come off as controversial today, but they weren’t that deep,” Beck continued, referencing his own controversial history on social media. “I can see why people think it’s a big deal now, but it’s like… I never thought I would have this platform. I never thought I would have this stage. I was growing up just playing soccer. I liked a few tweets, but I didn’t think anything of it at the time.”

Needless to say, both Beck and Johnson have received a substantial amount of criticism from listeners, with one user writing: “He really said that he never thought he would have gotten famous… so if you’re not famous, you can be homophobic and it’s not a big deal?”

Both boys have yet to speak out on the outrage, which only continues to grow in wake of their already storied history of sparking division among TikTok viewers.
