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.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
