FaZe Clan Twitch streamer Soleil ‘EwOk’ Wheeler has found her groove in Fortnite: Chapter 2, even managing to troll long-time supporter and friend Matthew ‘Mizkif’ Rinaudo on-stream.

Fortnite’s second iteration is in full-swing and players are basking in the new map, cosmetics, and brand new additions to the franchise – including the integration of water throughout the newfangled map.

Popular streamer EwOk is one of many to revel in Epic Games’ fresh take on their staple battle royale. The 14-year-old has taken to her Twitch channel to broadcast the game, linking up with long-time duo  Mizkif.

Epic GamesChapter 2 saw the introduction of a brand new map.

Mizkif and EwOk’s friendship dates back to when the ‘Just Chatting’ streamer initially recognized Wheeler for her incredible Fortnite abilities. Rinaudo raided the teenager’s stream back in March, which kickstarted a whirlwind six months for the first-ever female FaZe member. 

The pair collaborated in a recent broadcast, which saw EwOk showing Mizkif the ropes of the new battle royale island. While the two were exploring the new surroundings, Wheeler took the opportunity to hilariously troll her counterpart. 

Capitalizing on EwOk’s shrewd knack to build, Rinaudo promptly followed the FaZe member to the top, before she destroyed the platform from beneath his feet, seeing him plummet to his death. 

“What are you doing?!” asked a puzzled Mizkif, before he took a nosedive from up high. Now downed, EwOk carefully proceeded to make her way down. 

Still with unfinished business, Wheeler decided to jest with Mizkif some more, by throwing him in the ocean and building around him to slow his return to land. “Hey, I can’t swim!” yelled Rinaudo, before reviving her teammate. 

Of course those watching lapped up EwOk’s efforts, as they proceeded to spam “LULW” in chat to indicate the frivolity of the situation. 

Indeed, it appears that the duo enjoyed each other’s company during their Fortnite escapade; even if Mizkif came off worse than expected.


SypherPK finds his own secret easter egg in Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite sensation SypherPK made a public request a few weeks back and Epic Games seem to have heard him loud and clear as the content creator was stunned by his very own secret easter egg in Season 5.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, SypherPK has millions of fans that listen to his every word. As it turns out, a few developers are among those avid viewers. A request made on November 2 has finally made an impact, thanks to those at Epic Games who tuned into his video.

Members of his community were pleading for SypherPK to receive his own in-game reference. Whether it’s a small poster somewhere on the map, or even an entire Point of Interest referring back to his name. However, the YouTuber had something else in mind.

“We need something that’s very simple,” he said. “We want to add a book to Fortnite. A ‘How to Win’ book,” based on one of his most popular series. Well with the arrival of a brand new season, SypherPK’s wish has come true.

“They actually did it,” he shared on December 2. One of the first things he did in Season 5 was check the weather station. Even to his surprise, the developers had listened to his request and actually followed through.

“This is my creation,” he said in shock upon discovering a vibrant red book exactly where he requested one to be. While it doesn’t reference the ‘How to Win’ series in any way, Sypher was overjoyed at the fact his community had “added something to the game.”

There’s now a physical item in-game thanks to a video he made back in November. Not only that, but the book has been special in a few ways. For starters, physics are applied to the object, so it properly bounces around and moves as you’d expect it to. The book is also invincible, meaning players can’t go about destroying Sypher’s unique creation.

It’s one of the more subtle easter eggs in Fortnite. If you weren’t an active fan of Sypher before Season 5, you wouldn’t be aware of this secret at all. But for those in the know, it’s a special little reference just for his community.

Obviously, the easter egg has no real influence on the game, so don’t track it down expecting some kind of buff or secret item to come along with it. But it’s clearly a sign that developers are always keeping tabs on the biggest content creators.

We’ve seen Icon Series skins and now subtle easter eggs. Who knows what we’ll be seeing next.
