Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney left his teammates in disbelief after he made a crucial, yet rookie, error during a run-through of Escape From Tarkov.

Battlestate Games’ Escape from Tarkov hit the big time on Twitch at the start of 2020 as the developers utilized free item drops for watching streamers who had been committed to playing the game for quite some time.

While some of the most OG Tarkov players saw their channels receive a huge boost, popular streamers from other titles decided to their hand at the game that is still in beta. Some have since dropped off but others, like Tfue, have finally given in and taken to the intense first-person shooter to see what it’s all about.

However, as many players have already discovered, Tarkov can be extremely punishing if you try and play in a style that doesn’t quite fit.

Though for Tfue, who is still learning the ropes, he received an expensive lesson as he tried to toss a grenade through a door – only to realize that he had just consigned himself and his teammates – including Denis ‘Cloak’ Lepore – to their deaths.

“I don’t know where I threw that,” Tfue said before his Escape from Tarkov squad noticed that his grenade had been blocked and fell at their feet. “Yo, what the f**k, I was trying to throw a grenade in the doorway and you were blocking me,” Tfue added before Cloak fired back at him. “Turner, you don’t just walk up and throw a f**king grenade.

While the other teammate of the former Fortnite duo saw the funny side of things, laughing along with Tfue’s own giggles about the learning experience, Cloak was still left in disbelief – dropping a disappointed sounding “Turner” as they returned to the main menus.

Dying in Tarkov is to be avoided at all costs, as players will lose their often substantial loot and essentially have to start over.

The hilarious fail just goes to show that Tfue’s trademark Fortnite speed and aggression needs slightly toning down for Tarkov, but at least he’ll probably figure it out after this.

Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
