Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is one of best Fortnite Battle Royale players on the planet, but that doesn’t automatically mean the FaZe Clan star approves of every aspect of the game.

The Fortnite Fall Skirmish champion made that clear during a recent Twitch stream when he discussed the controversial Mounted Turret, which was added to the game in the v6.30 patch on November 14.

“The [Mounted] Turret is actually one of the dumbest things they’ve added in the game, no joke,” Tfue said after dealing with a player using the incredibly powerful item during the early stages of a game.

He went on to compare the Mounted Turret with unpopular additions, stating: “Like, when you think of like the worst things they’ve added to the game, I would say Jetpack is up there, the Double Barrel [Shotgun] is definitely up there when it was like super overpowered.

“But like, I don’t know dude, I think the Turret takes the cake. What do you guys think? I think the Turret is the worst thing they’ve added to this game. Easily.”

The Mounted Turret proved to be an exceptionally powerful item as soon as it was added to the game, and some of Fortnite’s best known players, including Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, were quick to point out its flaws.

Despite a hotfix on November 15 that nerfed the Turret’s health, and another on November 16 that nerfed its availability, the powerful weapon is clearly still causing issues for players of all levels.

There’s no denying the fact that Tfue is one of the best Fortnite players around, but even he has struggled to find a way of consistently dealing with players using the Mounted Turret when he encounters them.

It will be interesting to see how Tfue receives the game’s latest addition, Dynamite, when he gets the chance to test it out. The explosive item has already received criticism from some pro players that believe Epic should be concentrating on other aspects of the game.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
