Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo were once some of the biggest Fortnite streamers in the world – but now they’ve revealed why they stopped playing the game.

Fortnite paved the way for many of today’s biggest content creators to make something much more for themselves, and this is something Lupo happily admits during his appearance on The CouRage and Nadeshot Show, but as more and more of the biggest names move away from the popular battle royale title, many simply want to know why.


Now, the Fornite World Cup casting duo have revealed exactly why they’ve stopped playing the game.

Lupo and Dunlop casted the record-breaking Fortnite World Cup together.

After a funny and awkward introduction from Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, who says the two “rinsed it for everything it could give [you],” CouRage started to explain why he stopped playing.


He said: “I would literally go insane if I was trying to play that game like I once did. I just mentally can no longer do two-minute build battles with skill-based matchmaking for no return. It just doesn’t do it for me anymore.”

DrLupo agreed with Dunlop, saying it is “hard to play the same thing every single day for forever.” He compared it to games such as Call of Duty, which at least get a new iteration each year, adding that “the audience became saturated with it as well.”

Lupo goes on to explain that he got his first casting experience with Fortnite, and shows off some of the incredible collectibles he picked up during his time playing the game – including a Lego Rainbow Smash pickaxe that cost him $5,000.

Both Lupo and Dunlop mention that they “still love the game,” the latter adding he can still go on and enjoy Fortnite sometimes, but no longer in the way he could throughout 2018.

They also said that they would still be interested in casting if the opportunity presented itself but, with the likes of Warzone and Valorant being so popular right now, we’re not sure they’ll be heading back to Fortnite any time soon.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.


In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.


The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
