Fortnite Battle Royale pros following their complaints of the Pump Shotgun being vaulted for the World Cup.

May 11 marked the first week of World Cup qualifiers without the Pump Shotgun, a weapon that many players relied on for late-game eliminations.

The removal of this gun led many pros to learn a different strategy on the fly but a number of them had a hard time finding something to fill the void.

Epic GamesEpic Games controversially vaulted the Pump Shotgun in Season 9.

Many pros hit out at Epic Games over the vaulting

Top names in the community, such as Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins lamented the loss of the gun after the qualifiers finished on Twitter.

Ninja performed poorly during the qualifiers, something that was clear from his very first match, and shared his feelings directly after his stream. 

“Felt completely out of my element and without the pump I froze in 5 fights late game when my combat shotgun would not shoot out of shadow mode.”

Ninja certainly wasn’t alone in feeling lost without the Pump Shotgun, as it was echoed by other players who were doing their qualifiers. 

TimTheTatman said although he plays the game mainly for fun, the late-game zones without the pump felt “awful.”

Dr Disrespect called them all out

The Doc caught wind of these “excuses” and sent out a clear message to all of the pros – they need to stop their complaining.

“I’m sick of these Fortnite excuses….”unvault the pump” or “please, I need my baby precious pump shotty”, etc etc,” he wrote. 

He responded to Ninja’s tweet by saying he should have watched some of the Doc’s VODs to learn more about the late-game.

Ninja fans quickly came to his defense and Doc gave them a firm roasting as well.

The Doc moved on from Ninja and then set his sights on TimTheTatman, someone he often has some friendly banter with.

Tim said he’d be able to beat Doc in a 1v1 even if he unplugged his monitor and mouse, something Doc vehemently disagreed with and jabbed at Tim’s weight.

It was made clear the two were just joking, but that didn’t stop Doc from taking a shot at the Fortnite Battle Royale streamer’s “preschool demographic” which is a common criticism of the community.

One person Doc actually had kind words for is NICKMERCS, someone who didn’t complain about the Pump Shotgun once.

The Two-Time said he was taking some time away from Twitch, but it looks like he is still spending that time interacting with the community, continuing to be the troll that he is.

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
