Fortnite artist creates brilliant Tfue skin concept for Icon Series

Fortnite artist D3NNI has designed a brilliant concept skin for professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, as Epic Games’ Icon Series lifts off. 

The Fortnite Icon Series is the latest innovation from Epic Games, designed to heighten engagement with Fortnite personalities. As arguably the biggest and most successful Fortnite streamer, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the first content creator to receive his own skin. 

Epic Games have already confirmed that more Icon skins are on the way, but it is not entirely clear which creators will or won’t receive them. 

Mixer: Ninja / Twitch: TfueNinja and Tfue have clashed in the past.

Tfue is one of the biggest Fortnite streamers in the world, but not has always behaved in a way to win favor with its developers. He is not afraid to vocalize his criticisms, something he and Ninja have clashed over in the past. 

While voicing criticism for Fortnite is not something that will definitely stop Tfue receiving an Icon skin, it can certainly strain relations with developers. Some players have suggested that Ninja does not voice his opinions for fear of missing out on collaborations. 

Despite the fact that we may not see an official Icon skin for Tfue, Fortnite artist D3NNI shared his take on a Tfue skin perfectly. Complete with blonde hair and headset, he even hilariously includes one of Tenney’s catchphrases at the bottom. 

The tweet garnered a lot of attention, amassing nearly 5,000 likes at the time of writing. Many Fortnite fans were quick to note its accuracy. 

One said: “Oh my gosh, that’s so dope! [It] looks just like him”. Another echoed: “Denni I literally told you, your renders are amazing recently and you just have to go and prove me right”. 

Tfue himself hasn’t reacted the skin concept yet though. He did acknowledge Ninja’s skin, joking that he actually had one first as the ‘Jonesy’ default skin looks just like him. He also trolled the announcement by suggesting fans use his creator code when buying Ninja’s skin.

We’ll have to wait and see whether Tfue gets a skin in-game, but D3NNI’s tweet has certainly proved there’s an appetite for one.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
