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.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
