A Fortnite Battle Royale Twitch streamer has shattered his monitor in a moment of rage after a loss, leaving him and his viewers shocked.

Everyone knows what it feels like to lose a close-fought battle. Some people get over it by meticulously skimming over the replays to figure out where you went wrong. Others don’t bother to dwell on it, taking each game in their stride and laughing it off.

However, there are those people who have to let out some steam. Whether it’s by yelling, smashing your table, or generally wriggling around in your chair, some players can only get over the tilt by raging a little.

Twitch: TfueEveryone loses their cool from time to time – just ask Tfue.

Sometimes though, things get messy – and expensive. Fortnite streamer ‘tetsufn’ saw that for himself after tilting during an intense build battle. As the final circle started approaching, and the number of players were whittling down, Tetsu was setting himself up for success.

However, he was met with resistance with about 20 people to go. While he tried to get around it, he fell victim to a rogue spike trap, leading to him calling his adversary “b***h” and flinging his keyboard across his desk.

What was on the other side of his desk though was a precious monitor which he used to keep an eye on chat. His keyboard went right through the screen, smashing it and causing a massive tear in the display.

In the adrenaline rush, the streamer could only manage to scream in shock. 

“I just – I just, oh my god,” Tetsu said. “Zamond, I just ruined my second monitor. Oh my god.”

He panned his camera onto the second screen to show off the damage, and it was pretty nasty. While not completely unusable, there’s not a hell of a lot he can do with it with that much damage. As for his keyboard, it seemingly escaped unscathed from the fit of rage. 

He later uploaded a better photo of the destroyed monitor on Twitter, captioned with a “:(“ that spoke 1000 words. The screen is completely cracked, with black bars running across the entire right third of the monitor.

He won’t be without a second monitor for long, with the streamer announcing that he has indeed bought a new one to replace it. However, the 144hz curved beast is likely to be more valuable than the one he just lost so, hopefully, he takes a bit more care when playing around it. 

After that, Tetsu ended up stepping away from his PC and getting a breather, which is always the smart thing to do when you begin tilting. He also learned a valuable lesson about being a bit more careful when letting his emotions get the better of him.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
