As the world’s winningest Fortnite player, Tfue was expected to breeze through qualification in the Winter Royale, a $1 million open tournament, but his attempts on the first day were marred by a hacker.

Before the Winter Royale began, some players voiced concern about having an open tournament with such a huge prize pool played online, where hackers and cheats could prosper.

There was also the risk that players would try to race to earn as many points as possible by deliberately being eliminated or leaving early once they had a few kills, rather than play matches out to the end.

Hackers did indeed show up, even taking out FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney while he streamed to tens of thousands of viewers, and ruining an otherwise good game for Tfue’s qualification hopes.

After being eliminated by the player in question, Tfue’s suspicions were raised, so he headed to the replay mode in Fortnite to confirm his doubts about the player.

He watches in almost expectant disappointment as the player locks onto opponents through cover, pinpointing them through the long grass where they remained concealed.

And Tfue’s frustrations didn’t end there, as later in his session he was taken out by what was almost certainly a ‘stream sniper’, “I don’t know what to do man, I’m being killed by stream snipers and hackers, that’s literally it.”

Viewers suggested that he attempt qualification the next day but off stream, to avoid people hunting him down in game, by watching his POV on Twitch.

Tfue was the most watched Fortnite stream on Twitch on November 24 (with top streamer Ninja playing his qualification matches off stream), so this issue of hacking will no doubt have been brought to Epic Games’ attention.

Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
