Fortnite player reveals perfect counter for griefers

A Fortnite player has shown their peers the perfect counter to griefers in Epic Games’ battle royale, with a hilarious trick play that left his opponents with no option but elimination.

Griefers in Fortnite are among the most annoying players to come against. They will chase you down with no regard for their own lives, hunting you to add an extra notch to their elimination tally.

When you come up against someone playing so aggressively, it’s not always clear what the best play is, especially as it forces you into a gunfight that you may not be particularly equipped for.

Epic Games
Despite the upcoming Device event bringing in Chapter 2, Season 3, players are still finding new ways to beat their opponents.

A lot of the time, you’re simply forced into a position where you have to take the fight and hope that you get the better of your enemy – but that doesn’t have to be the case.

As shown by JustSomeRandomMan3, it takes being in the right place at the right time, but there’s one way to counter griefers perfectly.

Luckily for RandomMan, their squad were perfectly positioned on the map to completely juke the enemies hunting them down.

While traversing the map, the squad flew across Gorgeous Gorge, descending all the way to the bottom of the waterfall and buying themselves some time.

They then laid out a wood flooring at the base of the waterfall, leaving their opponent absolutely nowhere to go when they came flying over, except all the way down into their demise, leaving fall damage to do the hard work.

They were trying to grief me, but they ended up in a coffin from r/FortNiteBR

Many players have faced their fate with ill-judged leaps from this waterfall, but using it to your advantage like this is a seriously high-IQ move, and the enemy will likely think twice next time they attack opponents so aggressively.

So if you find yourself being hunted down by a player and you’re not in the right state to be taking the fight, try to play around Gorgeous Gorge and you might just get yourself a couple of lucky catches.


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.
