Popular Fortnite star FaZe Sway has been accused of falsely labeling a player as a scammer, which has apparently “ruined” their competitive career.

Fortnite pro FaZe Sway has made a name for himself in the competitive community and is known for being one of the game’s better controller players alongside the likes of Aydan and NICKMERCS.

However, he has found himself at the center of controversy after being accused of ruining a player’s career following a wager match between the pair, according to YouTuber The Fortnite Guy.

TheFortniteGuy /YoutubeImZarz shared some of his Twitter DM’s between him and FaZe Sway.

The YouTuber highlighted that a competitive player who goes by “ImZarz” accused the Sway of “ruining his career” by claiming he was scammed over a wager match on Fortnite.

The Fortnite Guy shared the exchange which took place between the pair in Twitter messages, highlighting that FaZe Sway had demanded to be sent $50 after there was a disagreement over the amount of money placed on their match.

According to the leaked messages, the pair had agreed to start with a $10 wager, however, after the match had concluded the disagreement led to FaZe Sway posting on Twitter and ‘exposing’ Zarz for “scamming” him.

In one of his streams, ImZarz revealed that the post has had a massive impact on him, showing that many of FaZe Sway’s fans had begun harassing him in private messages.

“That’s not cool what you did, you went over the line. You tweeted me out and I’m getting so much hate right now for no reason,“ the player claimed, while trying to resolve the issue with the FaZe Clan pro.

The Fortnite Guy later explained that ImZarz was starting to rise in popularity before his exchange with Sway, and that it had a negative impact on his career competing in Fortnite.

“The really sad thing for ImZarz is that he was on the come up,“ the YouTuber revealed, before highlighting some of his analytics, “He just recently had a video over 900,000 views, then all of this drama happened and it just completely stunted his growth.“

The Fortnite Guy also revealed that he had reached out to FaZe Sway multiple times to clarify what had happened and apologize to the player, however, he has not commented on the situation publicly as of yet.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
