Tfue was in the midst of a Fortnite stream when he encountered a such a troll, wearing a the game’s famed purple ‘Skull Trooper’ skin – who apparently wanted to throw down.
“Yeah, you’re fucking trolling me, dude,” Tfue jokingly challenged. “You know exactly who the fuck I am. …oh, you wanna fucking build? Let’s get it, kid!”
Despite Tfue’s trash talk, the sniper quickly dispatched him with a single shot, prompting Tfue to invite him back into a game for a few rounds of 1v1 build battles.
The sniper was quick to show off his skill, downing Tfue multiple times despite losing building height – which prompted a few hilarious reactions from the streamer.
“Dude, I just got shit on, dude!” Tfue jokingly said of one loss. “Ah, shit, I didn’t place that wall. GG.”
The sniper hopped on the mic after their bout to congratulate Tfue’s skills, to which Tfue had but one question:
“Why were you stream sniping me, dude?”
“Nah, I was watching your stream,” the sniper replied. “…I knew you were in my game so I was like, ‘I need some clout, dog, to be honest.’”
Tfue didn’t seem to take offense to the sniper’s obvious “clout-farming,” and even wished him well before moving on.
This isn’t the first time Tfue has had a memorable encounter with a stream sniper, either; the pro was even taken out by a child streamer in late 2018, after which the kid let out a piercing scream in celebration (much to Tfue’s exasperation).
