Popular Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was shocked after finding a whole army of players had stream sniped him during a game of Duo’s.

Stream sniping has become one of the biggest problems for streamers who want to play online games for their audience and most streamers take preventative action such as setting delays on their stream.

Although, it is often that streamers will just deal with whatever comes their way in terms of stream snipers, such as in the case of Tfue, who has been a constant target for stream snipers while playing Fortnite.

YouTube: TfueTfue is one of the most popular streamers, and often has to deal with stream snipers.

Tfue usually relies on his mechanical skills to help him out of disadvantageous positions in-game, however, in one of his most recent streams, he was shocked to see almost the entire lobby landing where he wanted to go after declaring it on stream.

The former FaZe member and his duo, EmadGG, decided to land at the latest edition of Fortnite’s Creative block location, suggesting “there will probably just be one team here,” before looking around to see the sky full of players all following him.

The pair began bursting into laughter, with Emad explaining just how surprised he was at the amount of players, saying, “oh my god, that is not possible.”

Although stream snipers can often be frustrating for any streamers trying to entertain the viewers, they can also lead to some hilarious moments, where Tfue would have to rack up tons of kills just to survive.

One of the more entertaining stream sniping moments was seen during the former CS:GO pro Shroud’s stream on Twitch, where the stream sniper mimicked the iconic CJ from GTA San Andreas meme during a game of PUBG.

Tfue is expected to compete this weekend away from the stream snipers in a LAN setting on June 17 alongside LA Lakers star, Josh Hart, as part of the Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am tournament in The Forum, California.

A 72-year-old Twitch streamer that went by the name of OldBuzzardt has sadly passed away, with family members leaving the announcement on his Twitch channel to let fans know.

OldBuzzardt, known to friends and fans as Buzz, who previously worked in law enforcement, including stints in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army Active Reserve, would often share his Fortnite gameplay to his loyal fans, with an infectiously happy spirit about him.

Buzz had over 80,000 followers on the platform, and even had his own Creator Code on Epic Games’ hit battle royale title, clearly loving what he was doing and going live almost every day for his viewers to catch up with him.

Unfortunately, on October 17, ahead of a scheduled Fortnite stream, Buzz passed away and his family took it upon themselves to launch his stream with a message to fans letting them know what has happened, and even offering a place for his fans to find support.

Buzz loved playing Fortnite, sharing his gameplay on Twitch and YouTube.

The livestream simply contained a still image of Buzz, looking as happy as ever, with a few words.

“It is with a heavy heart we have to inform you that Buzz passed away at home on 10/17/2020,” it read. “We have left the stream and chat open for you all to gather and pay your respects. We hope you know how much you all meant to Buzz.”

It went on to say that his stream was and will continue to be a very special place, before explaining that the moderators will be in the chat offering support, with fans able to leave a nice word or talk about their favorite memories of Buzz with others.

Buzz was a great reminder to his viewers and the wider community that age is really just a number in gaming: while Fortnite was typically looked at as a kid’s game, he jumped on the game everyday and had a great time, fostering a positive and lighthearted community.

We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Buzz’s family, friends and viewers at this sad time.
