Clix calls for Fortnite to delete Season 3 sharks after DreamHack loss

Cody ‘Clix’ Conrad lashed out on the state of Fortnite Season 3 after dying in the most unfortunate way during a round of the $1.7 million Dreamhack Online Open. 

Clix has rapidly become one of the most popular North American Fortnite players in 2020. He even signed to NRG with an epic announcement from none other than NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal. Despite the fame, however, the Fortnite star has jokingly threatened to quit the game due to recent additions in Season 3.

Epic Games not only dipped most of Fortnite’s map underwater with the Season 3 update, but a ton of new weapons, items, and mechanics also came into play. One of the biggest additions being loot sharks that appear at random to damage players and builds alike.

While these sharks can be used as a means of getting around the map, they come with a surprising function. Dropping loot nearby can often be gobbled up as the sharks change color to match its rarity. Clix encountered this at the worst possible moment during the latest competitive event.

A few games into the Solo Finals of the first DreamHack Online Open, Clix found himself in a sticky situation. Far from the safety of the zone, he was in the midst of a heated build-fight before closing out the kill. Things spiralled out of control from this point forward, however.

When you down an enemy from a close range, you typically look to grab their loot almost instantly. Clix was in desperate need of building materials, so those were top of his loot-list.

Before he had a chance to grab the loot it had fallen to the ground below. He might still have had time to grab it and make his way back to safety, except a random shark appeared and swallowed up the building materials.

“Good f***ing game,” he repeated until his character was wiped out of the lobby. “I’m deada** not playing this s*** anymore. They added a shark that eats f***ing loot,” he yelled in frustration.

While he had a few other games to improve his standings in the event, this loss certainly cost him in the long run. Clix ultimately finished in 41st place out of the 100 pros involved in the online tournament.

He’s not the first competitive veteran to slam Fortnite’s third season either. Plenty of other pros have slammed the latest major update; Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney even went as far as to call it “unplayable” recently too.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
