Fortnite streamer attempts mind-boggling rocket-ride snipe for victory

Fortnite star Kerry ‘Mew’ Nguyen has again defied chance and gravity to land a one-in-a-million rocket-riding snipe to claim victory in Epic’s massive battle royale as he looked to earn the ‘Ultimate Battle Royale Experience’ achievement.

The FaZe streamer has been trying to perfect the art of riding rockets in Fortnite over the past few months, taking the skill to higher and higher levels as he racked up Victory Royales.

His latest snipe may have put all the rest to shame, however, as he used a teammate’s RPG to descend from the heavens, and land a near-impossible headshot on the match’s last opponent.

Fortnite players are always looking for new and inventive ways to claim Victory Royales.

Mew found himself hundreds of meters in the air, watching the final battle play out below him, and he quickly realized that he could put the finishing touches on his latest squad win with some gravity-defying flair.

“Can you do me a huge favor and shoot an RPG up towards me?” the bold streamer asked his teammate, looking to get a little bit of extra height before his plunge towards the fight. “Just shoot an RPG at me so I can jump on it.”

When his squad-mate obliged, Mew leaped from the safety of his sky-based structure onto the Halloween rocket, grabbing another 30 meters in the process. He dropped off the side of the rocket, and began plummeting towards his possible death.

The FaZe superstar had other plans, however, and lined up his shot against the opponent hiding behind a barricade. With just meters left on his fall, Mew pulled the trigger, dealing 110 damage straight off the bat, and winning the game.

Mews, who unlocked the achievement ‘The Ultimate Battle Royale Experience’ for killing someone while riding a rocket with his insane snipe, lost his mind as soon as he realized the bullet had struck gold.


“Let’s go, let’s f*cking go! Yes! Yoo! I’m so hype! Yes!” he yelled, clapping his hands and leaping out of his chair. “Wow, are you kidding me? Oh my god.”

Twitter: FaZe MewFaZe Mew has made his name as one of the most lethal trick-shotters in Fortnite.

Considering Mew first earned his place in the prestigious FaZe organization with his skills with a sniper rifle, it’s no small surprise that he’s becoming better and better at rocket-ride snipes every single time he plays.

Next time, he may have to go a little bigger with his tricks — if he’s playing squads again, what’s the chance he can wipe out a whole enemy team before he hits the ground?

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
