After gaining international fame by winning 2019’s Fortnite World Cup, Kyle “Bugha” Giersdorf is now subject to to the vast depths of stream snipers—but he is colorfully shutting them down.

Back in April, Bugha was already getting sick of stream snipers, noting that streaming his competitive matches online was leading to people farming him for the “clout.” But that has only gotten worse, as the professional player’s scrims have been flooded with people trying to bait him by offering free meds before killing him (against his scrim’s zone rules).

After initially deciding to simply stop streaming his competitive matches, he’s now come up with ways to curb stream snipers in his scrims too.

 

If you come into Bugha’s scrims with any plans to subvert competitive integrity by trolling, be prepared to learn the error of your ways. The Sentinels star has decided to take a firm approach to any stream snipers, whether good or bad.

And the approach is very simple: if he sees you treating him differently in a scrim and trying to give him stuff, he will immediately down you and leave you (and your stuff) to be revived in the hopes that you’ve learned a lesson.

In his own words, “Now, get away. Learn your lesson, get away. Take your s**t and get away.”

Following some experiences with “good stream snipers” who would drop meds for the World Cup winner, there have been the aforementioned instances of baiting in which snipers lure Bugha in with goodies before sucker-gunning him down.

Hopefully, the professor’s lesson is working, as those frustrating opponents should no longer expect their tricks to work given his recent switch to a no-nonsense policy regarding those who subvert the competitive integrity of his scrims.

Epic GamesPro Fortnite scrims are hectic as it is, and stream snipers only add to that.

 

Even despite having his practice rounds interfered with by stream-watching nuisances, the cracked Fortnite pro continues to win money at events. 

For those considering joining his training regime in scrims, just be aware that Bugha’s eyes remain on the prize and that, should you interfere and disobey zone rules, he won’t hesitate to teach you a lesson.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
