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.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
