Professional Fortnite player and streamer Cody ‘Clix’ Conrad was playing in the Fortnite Champion Series with his squad when he was swatted during a live broadcast.

During a match on October 26, during an FNCS match, Clix had to leave his stream and teammates behind as he discovered somebody called the police to his residence.

The timing caught everyone off guard, as Clix abruptly announced to his team and viewers that he had been ‘swatted’ – a cruel and dangerous hoax where someone calls authorities to falsify a report of a crime in the hopes of sending armed officers to the scene.

Epic GamesThe Fortnite Champion Series followed the World Cup.

The trick is often played on streamers, as the culprit knows the ensuing choas is likely to be captured on their broadcasts.

“Police are here,” Clix exclaimed, seemingly out of nowhere, shocking his viewers. “Yo, I just got swatted.”

Luckily, nobody was harmed as a result and Clix’s team was even able to take home the victory in the match it happened. Clix had already been eliminated by that point so his departure didn’t hurt his team.

Despite everything turning out fine, Clix was still shaken by what happened and condemned the act on social media, writing “Swatting is so disgusting, what’s the point of it,” he tweeted.

Clix is just the latest in a string of streamers that have been swatted this year, and he’s not even the first Fortnite player to fall victim to the crime.

Shortly after bringing home a victory at the Fortnite World Cup, Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf was swatted during his Twitch stream, where he had to take a roughly 10-minute break from the broadcast to address it.

Like Clix, Bugha wasn’t harmed as a result of this but it’s alarming how often swattings actually occur.

The infamous Call of Duty swatter Tyler Barriss was sentenced to prison as a result of getting somebody killed by police as a result of his “prank” he played.

Unfortunately, it appears that his story has taught future swatters any lessons as they keep happening.

Many big streamers work something out with the local police to let them know who they are so the law enforcement will be aware of something like a swatting happening.

Hopefully, Clix will be able to move on from this and continue his dominance in FNCS.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
