Fortnite’s Last Laugh Bundle trailer finally dropped, but although it shows off some incredible DC Skins including Joker, Midas, and Poison Ivy, it’s also got fans wondering whether C4s might be coming back to the game.

 

Epic Games announced Fortnite’s Last Laugh Skin Bundle several months ago. However, a lot of time has passed since then, and fans were left wondering when it would be added to the game.

Fortunately, Epic Games has finally broken their silence once again and released an official trailer on November 10. It showed off some incredible DC Skins including Midas, Poison Ivy, and of course, Joker.

The skins have drawn a lot of attention and praise. However, something else that featured in the trailer has sparked even more excitement; in addition to cackling maniacally and clowning around, Joker wreaks havoc with C4s.

C4s have been a divisive topic among Fortnite players for many years. Some players think they’re a great way to deal with opponents who camp and turtle, especially in competitive modes. However, others believe they’re a little too overpowered.  

Epic Games has added and removed multiple times, which only added more fuel to the fire. They’ve even tried nerfing it by making players only find one at a time. But in the end, they decided to remove them from the game, and it’s been that way ever since.

Now, in yet another turn of events, it looks like C4s are back in business, at least for a while. It’s hard to find a more fitting weapon for Joker to use. If they were going to bring it back for any character, it had to be him.

Like in most games, C4s in Fortnite can be exploded using a remote.

Keep in mind, though, that it’s all speculation about the C4s until Epic Games makes an official announcement.

For all we know, Joker using them in the trailer might not mean anything other than a way to make the announcement more comical.

Either way, the Last Laugh Bundle is locked in and ready to go. Joker, Midas, and Poison Ivy skins will hit the Item Shop later on in the week. If you want to get your hands on them, don’t forget. Otherwise, you might miss out.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
