FaZe Mongraal stuns viewers and pros with mind-blowing aim on Fortnite

Professional Fortnite player for FaZe Clan, Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, stunned his viewers and fellow pros with an incredible demonstration of his talents on January 11. 

Despite being just 15 years old, Mongraal has established himself as one of the best Fortnite players in the world. He finished 13th in the world for the solo competition in the Fortnite World Cup, while he and partner Mitr0 finished 6th in the duos tournament at the same event. 

Since then, he has won numerous online tournaments in Fortnite, cementing his standing as one of the best professional players in the world. This was a position he proved once again on January 11, although not through direct competition against other excellent players.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite World Cup is not the only time Mongraal has proved his talents.

While messing around with a Fortnite creative mode, Mongraal stunned his viewers with his insane ability to track a target. 

The mode in question sees a small target move quickly along a multilayered track, as the player tries to stick to it with their aim as best they can. It’s fair to say Mongraal passed the test with flying colors.

After sticking to the target for multiple runs, the 15-year-old then proceeded to shoot at it and, while using both the Scar and the game’s Burst Assault Rifle, barely missed a bullet. Not only did he demonstrate his ability to track a target, but stunned viewers with his ability to control recoil, even on a fast-moving target.

While Mongraal’s viewers were impressed with the aim on display, so too were the pro players in his discord. As Jackson annihilates the target with his uncompromising aim, one person in his chat was joking “nobody clip that”, clearly stunned at the talent on show. 

Mongraal, for his part, retained his focus and continued to stick to the target like glue before finally exclaiming: “Someone clip that and send it in my chat right now!” 

If it wasn’t clear why he’s one of the best in the world, it should be now.

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak
Epic Games
Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
