Brett ‘Fortnite and decided to charge him for a revive, causing his partner to leave the match altogether.

Sometimes your best moments in Fortnite come when you mess around with a random player. While it was fun for Dakotaz, we can’t say the same thing about his partner.

When his random duo partner was eliminated, Dakotaz was moving to pick up his Reboot Card, but instead made some demands before he did so.

Epic GamesDakotaz is famous for his Snorkle Ops skin.

“20 bucks,” he said. “20 bucks and I’ll get your reboot. I’m teaching you a hard lesson right now, 20 bucks is the price. You got PayPal?”

It was after this that his teammate was fed up and decided to leave the game entirely before Dakotaz was able to apologize.

“He left!” he exclaimed. “Oh my God, bro! Noooo! Oh my God! It’s seven years of bad luck, bro! Oh my God, noooooo!”

His teammate probably didn’t want to shell out 20 dollars just for a revive so instead of getting his PayPal set up, he left the game instead.

It just goes to show you that not everyone has the time to sit around to be trolled when they could already be in another lobby playing again.

With that said, DK did feel bad about making the young player leave as it’s possible they didn’t realize it was all an elaborate joke.

Making somebody disconnect is a good feeling in many games but not in a team-based game, especially when it’s your own teammate leaving because of you.

There’s no telling who’s on the other end of your jokes and how they’ll take them, so this could potentially be a cautionary tale about how to talk to your random teammates in the future.


How to get Predator’s Cloaking Device and go invisible in Fortnite

Predator has arrived in Fortnite, and he’s brought a new Mythic item called the Cloaking Device that can make players invisible. Here’s how, and where, to find it.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ popular battle royale has followed Agent Jonesy as he brings the world’s best hunters to the island. So far we’ve had God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, and The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne.

Now, after weeks of teasing, the iconic movie villain Predator has landed on The Island as the latest hunter for players to encounter. Players can unlock a Predator skin and several cosmetics, and there’s even an NPC to be found.

Perhaps most exciting, though, is that players can get their hands on a new Mythic item called Predator’s Cloaking Device, which turns players temporarily invisible. Here’s everything you need to know about it.

Where to find Predator’s Cloaking Device in Fortnite

To get Predator’s Cloaking Device, you’ll need to know where to go. Much like The Mandalorian, the newly-added Boss character will remain in a specific location, and you’ll need to defeat him to get a hold of the Mythic item he protects.

Predator can be found wandering around Stealthy Stronghold. It makes sense, as his ship recently crash-landed there, and players have heard his hunting call emerging from the jungle-like location for a while now.

You’ll need to defeat Predator, which won’t be an easy task as he’s incredibly agile and utilizes his invisibility effect. We’d recommend landing as quickly as possible into Stealthy Stronghold, getting yourself some decent weapons, and then taking him on.

Once you’ve taken him down, he’ll drop one or more of the following items: Predator’s Cloaking Device, Floppers, Ammo, and 30 Gold.

As with any new addition to Fortnite, when Predator arrives on the map there will likely be a flurry of players trying to take him out and get the Mythic item for themselves. Be prepared for a difficult battle.

How to use Predator’s Cloaking Device in Fortnite

Using the new Predator’s Cloaking Device is as easy as using any other item in the game. You simply equip the Mythic item in your inventory and press the ‘shoot’ button to turn it on.

While the prospect of going invisible is certainly an exciting one, Epic Games have of course made sure that play remains fair for everyone. As a result, players will be “nearly” invisible and the effect will only last a short time.

Invisibility will work for a maximum of 30 seconds, and there will be a 30 second cooldown time. Players will get a warning five seconds before they de-cloak.

Taking down opponents with the Cloaking Device might not be as easy as you think, either. The invisibility effect will disappear if you change weapons or enter the water. Still, it should give you an advantage, and if nothing else it will be fun to try out.
