We're looking back at some of Team SoloMid's Fortnite superstar Daequan's iconic moments from throughout his career.
In the world of Fortnite, there are not many names bigger and more recognizable than that of Daequan. One of Team SoloMid’s original four Fortnite pro players, Daequan set the bar high when it came to the popular battle royale: popularizing the famous “Double Pump,” winning a multitude of tournaments and constantly injecting comedy into his content.
Despite the superstar streamer’s long absences in 2019 due to health problems, he remains one of the most popular content creators out there, so we’ve compiled ten of the best moments ever from his stream.
10. Playing with his Food
Coming in at number 10 is a classic from July 2018, as Daequan had one opponent left standing in the way of his Victory Royale. As usual, the TSM star played with his food, yelling at the helpless enemy before beaming him with a Compact SMG.
9. Airborne snipe ahoy!
It wasn’t often that Daequan would be on the wrong end of a stellar play in Fortnite, but as number 9 shows, that still happened from time to time. He paid the price for being unable to finish off a kill as the enemy player boosted high into the air and shot him down with a miraculous snipe.
8. Fall damage not included
Number 8 features one of Daequan’s more hilarious reactions to an awful bug in Fortnite. Launching high into the air, he expertly beamed down an enemy player but then somehow died to fall damage, even though the Bouncer’s fall protection was still in effect.
7. It's a Trap!
When it comes to ironic moments, as number 7 shows, Daequan’s streams were certainly never lacking. After getting two kills with a single trap, the TSM star danced his way into his own death. By another trap, of course.
6. Overconfidence will be your undoing
Coming in at number 6 is another example of Daequan’s cockiness proving to be his own demise. Once again, he decided to play with his food instead of just going straight for the Victory Royale and ended up paying the ultimate price.
5. Doo-Doo destroyed!
Number 5 features one of Daequan’s more popular phrases “doo doo,” in this instance using it to express how badly he destroyed an enemy player. Using a Shockwave Grenade to fly through the air, he landed some expert shots to secure the elimination before landing back down.
4. It's NERF or Nothin'
For number 4 we step away from gameplay and instead focus on Daequan’s comedic camaraderie with TSM teammate Hamlinz. While wearing an old man wig, he fended off a surprise attack from Hamlinz and used his NERF gun to force him out of the room.
3. Ninja? Never heard of him.
Number 3 takes a trip down memory lane and into the first months of Fortnite. Daequan, in the process of establishing a name for himself, beamed down Ninja in an end-game gunfight and followed it up with some classic trash talk.
2. Bouncing Grapples
At number 2 we have a prime example for why Daequan, in his day, was considered one of the best Fortnite players in the world. Expert use of both the Bouncer and Grappler saw the TSM star win an incredible gunfight and secure a tough Victory Royale with the storm closing in.
1. Ninja the Hype Man
As the face of the Double Pump movement, it’s only fitting that the number one moment from Daequan’s streaming career features him using and abusing the mechanic to finish off a trio of players by himself and getting the Victory Royale from a seemingly unwinnable situation. Oh, and it helps that Ninja was hyping him up the whole time.
There you have it - ten of the best moments from Daequan's streaming career. The TSM star has already announced his plans to make 2020 "his year," so expect a lot more comedy, expert gameplay, and spicy trash-talk in the upcoming year.
