Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney finally got his hands on the $3,500 custom Fortnite-themed keyboard that TaehaTypes curated for him and it already looks to be paying dividends in-game.  

Back on January 18, Twitch viewers who stumbled across TaehaTypes’ channel got a glimpse at a project he had been working on for Tfue. Priced at $3500 for parts, coloring, and other manufacturing costs, the Fortnite-themed keyboard came decked out with brand-new keys and a size to fit Tfue’s specifications.

Of course, dropping a pretty penny on a brand-new keyboard shouldn’t really give you a competitive advantage over players – well, unless you’re using cheats that is. Yet, when Tfue finally got to show it off to fans who may have already seen it, well, he quickly did what he does best inside Fortnite.

Tfue is Twitch’s most-followed streamer following the departure of Ninja to Mixer.

During his January 27 stream, the popular streamer and Fortnite professional teased fans with a reveal of the keyboard as he finally looked set to use it on stream.

After a few teases, including showing off the bag it came in, he finally unboxed it – seemingly surprised by how good it looked. “Dude, this thing looks nuts,” he told his viewers. “Oh my god, look at it, it is so clean you can read chat through it – that’s how clean it is.”

Though, Tenney even joked about having another use for the shiny part on the bottom part of the keyboard – saying he was going to use it while it was sparkly clean. 

After showing it off and giving fans an up-close look at the new purchase, Tenney finally got it plugged in and set-up – ready to dominate the world of Fortnite.

As you may expect, it didn’t take him all that long to do so either. The Fortnite star jumped right into a build battle with another player and used all of his skills and tricks to out manoeuver them – earning himself the first kill with the new keyboard. 

Now, while he’ll be looking to ride the extravagant purchase all the way to the top of the Fortnite mountain, Tfue will still need some good luck and all of his talent to do so. 

Yet, wherever he ends up when it comes to tournaments and LAN events, he probably has the most expensive and, perhaps, keyboard out of all the pros.

Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
