CouRage mocks Epic Games’ decision making on their own livestream

Twitch star Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop took shots at Epic Games’ recent decision making, while he casting the World Cup qualifiers on their official live stream.

The former OpTic Gaming member was hired as an official caster for the upcoming Fortnite World Cup, but referenced the recent controversial changes made by Epic Games, which have upset top streamers and professional players, during the live broadcast.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney have both pleaded with the developer to re-vault the overpowered drum gun after the community voted to bring it back to the game, while other weapons such as the pump shotgun were unexpectedly removed from the loot pool.

TWITCH:NINJANinja is just one of many streamers and pros that want the drum gun back in the vault.

CouRage specifically referenced the removal of the pump shotgun – which caused outrage in the community – after watching a player fail to utilize the new combat variant effectively.

While the new weapon has increased fire rate and range compared to the pump, it isn’t capable of hitting 200 damage shots meaning players on low health points are no longer able to hit clutch shots during hectic end games.

“Right there is the difference between the combat shotgun and the pump. If I had a pump, there could have been a slight chance of a 200 damage one shot.

“But a combat shotgun right there, you just have no shot.”

The ex-Call of Duty caster continued to fire shots at Epic’s recent choices – particularly the re-addition of the semi-automatic sniper rifle.

CouRage suggested that Epic should implement a ‘weapon eater’ NPC that would rid the game of useless and overpowered weapons.

He said: “It eats up weapons – the drum gun and semi-auto sniper – and spits back out the pump shotgun!”

While their recent choices may be unpopular, as shown in the past, it’s unlikely that Epic Games will revert any of the recent changes any time soon.

For now, players will have to continue to adapt to the newly added weapons while the pump lays dormant in the vault.

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

Escape

Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
