Fresh off of winning the Solos tournament at the $30 million Fortnite World Cup, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf unfortunately got his Twitter and Twitch accounts hacked.

Bugha pulled off the performance of a lifetime on July 28, becoming the first ever solos Fortnite Cup World champion.

The 16 year-old was celebrating being able to take home the massive $3 million prize, when his Twitter and Twitch accounts were suddenly hacked, locking him out of the platforms.

Shortly after the 16-year-old Fortnite pro was crowned champion, strange tweets began appearing on his Twitter account.

“Follow @perocet @_eclan” one of them said. “Follow @perocet @_eclan we in the vip lounge dropping dom p bottles live stream in 10 following 100 back in an hour” read the second.

A retweet was also posted from July 9, which said “**** egirls” and contained a screenshot of a girl’s Twitter profile.

His Twitch was hacked too

Shortly after his Twitter account was hacked, his Twitch account was compromised too. Despite the account broadcasting live, a single image was displayed which said “Follow @percocet / @bug on twitter for a follow off bugha”

TwitchBugha’s Twitch was hacked too.

FaZe Clan’s Nate Hill posted a tweet showing that the Twitch account had been used to gift him subs: “Yo @bugha thanks for the 100 gifted subs. @Twitch think my mans is hacked.”

Bugha responded on Instagram

Bugha responded to the hack and posted on his Instagram story, saying: “My Twitter account has been hacked, those tweets are not mine.”

Thankfully for Bugha, whoever compromised the accounts didn’t do much with them, besides asking his many followers to follow two random accounts.

Bugha’s fans weren’t happy

Fans of the 16-year old Fortnite champion were not too thrilled with his accounts being hacked, as they replied to the unwelcome tweets with universal anger.

Many users mocked the hacker, accusing them of being an amateur for picking such an easy target. Most were just mad that it happened so soon after his hard earned win.

People were not happy.

“Imagine hacking someone to get followers and still not getting any” one person laughed.

“Imagine being bugha and just playing the game and winning millions like holy god congrats bugha” another replied.

As of right now, it’s unclear whether the two accounts have any relation to the hacker as they contain very little information. We’ll update you if any more information develops.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
