Fortnite’s latest update has brought chaos to the skies with the inclusion of the X-4 Stormwing and the game is already producing insane highlight reel material.

Epic Game released Season 7 to its battle royale on December 6, and players have been experimenting with the game’s first maneuverable airborne vehicle to make clips ranging from the hilarious to downright epic.

The latest comes from Jack “CouRage” Dunlop who was being pestered by an opponent in an X-4 forcing CouRage to place a Mounted Turret and lay down the law.

Epic GamesThe X-4 Stormwing is already proving to be one of Season 7’s best additions.

CouRage was on the ground floor of a structure when he placed a turret in a room and proceeded to shoot through the roof onto the unsuspecting pilot.

“Two can play at that game, bitch,” he shouted at the passing plane before firing off and landed a volley of shots on the X-4 Stormwing.

After CouRage has to wait for his turret to cool down, though, the pilot had clearly had enough and nosedived with guns blazing toward the streamer.

“Yeah, come on boy. I’m not afraid of you, kid! Yeeeaaahhh,” CouRage yelled at the incoming plane.

The two traded shots until the pilot had to pull up, giving CouRage a much wider target. The streamer was able to blow up the plane, and push the evacuated pilot to secure the kill.

The new season is still in its infancy, but insane sequences like this one are sure to be more frequent as players put more hours into the game.

Fortnite World Cup champion David ‘aqua’ Wang has been banned by Epic Games, following controversy over alleged stream sniping against FNCS opponents.

Aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, were accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Aqua banned by Epic Games

On October 25, aqua confirmed that his account had been banned from competitive, with Epic Games simply providing the reason as “other.”

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by participating past the first match of the Finals. 

It was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy simply joked about the incident.

 

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
