Fortnite: FaZe Tfue somehow gets shot through a wall and ramp, and he isn’t happy about it

Professional Fortnite player and FaZe Clan member Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney couldn’t believe the manner in which he died after getting shot through a ramp and a wall.

Tfue was playing Fortnite when he came across an enemy player, and the pair immediately engaged in a build battle as they attempted to gain the high ground over their opponent.

With Tenney gaining the upper hand, he began to peek over the age of this ramp to try and take out his opponent with a shotgun, when he got hit twice by the same weapon, which was being wielded by his opponent, and died.

Tfue was sure he had backed up and was protected by a wall and a ramp when he got hit, so he decided to use the game’s Replay mode to check and see if his assumption was right.

Epic GamesTfue is the highest earning professional Fortnite player in the world.

Tfue skipped forward to the gunfight in question, and took a side-on view so he could see exactly where both players were when he was killed.

Watching the clip, it was clear to see that Tenney had taken around two steps away from the ledge and back down the ramp, but the shotgun pellets seemed to travel through a brick wall and a brick ramp to take him out.

“Yo!” yelled the FaZe star while laughing. “What do you fucking mean, dude? Oh my God. This is unacceptable.”

While it’s unclear what actually caused this to happen, some Fortnite fans believe that it was simply a latency issue, with Tfue appearing to still be the top of the ramp for his enemy when they shot, but being further down the ramp on his own screen.

However, others believe that this is a problem with the peeking system in Fortnite, which allows players to hit opponents even when they are no longer looking over the edge of cover.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
