UPDATE – March 19, 2019

Tfue tweeted has been on antibiotics for over 48 hours and his neck is still swollen, leading him to go see a specialist about it.

FaZe Clan professional player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney could be set for a break from Fortnite due to a problem with his neck, possibly caused from playing too much.

Tfue is currently preparing for the upcoming Fortnite World Cup with duo partner Dennis ‘Cloak‘ Lepore but could be forced for an extended period away from the game due to medical reasons.

The 22-year-old revealed that he had been prescribed antibiotics to help resolve an unknown issue on his neck and admitted that surgery may be required to rectify the problem for good.

“I’m on antibiotics and if this doesn’t go away I’m probably going to have to get surgery or something,” Tfue explained while playing in the Gauntlet pop-up cup.

He believes the problem could be a result of streaming too much and not drinking enough water while gaming.

“It’s from playing too much – I was dehydrated when we were playing,” he added. “I was streaming way too much and was waking up with the worst headaches ever.”

As shown in the clip above, the problem looks serious and can hopefully be resolved in time for Tfue to compete in the $30 million World Cup event which starts in April.

An extended period away from streaming could also have a profound effect on his Twitch channel with his subscriber count likely to plummet if he is forced to take a medical break.


SypherPK reveals tips on how to master Fortnite Zero Point Crystals

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
