A random cube fragment spawn causes a streamer to lose a Fortnite game in hilarious fashion

A streamer named Kendama was down to the last four people in a game of Fortnite when he fell victim to some of the worst luck imaginable.

While running around a structure on the outskirts of Pleasant Park, Kendama suddenly found himself unable to move.

A cube monster spawn landed directly on top of him, filling his screen with purple and causing his teammate to begin laughing hysterically.

He wasn’t sure what had happened, but his teammate seemed to figure it out immediately and told him to start mining his way out. He was still stuck when the cube monsters descended upon him.

By the time he escaped the trap, the cube monsters were just about to finish him off for good.

Because this was just a casual game, Kendama couldn’t help but laugh at the circumstances. However, this moment shows exactly why Fortnite needed to keep the game on the previous balance patch for the TwitchCon Fall Skirmish.

In a casual game, this is funny, with $2.6 million on the line, nobody would be laughing.

Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
