Fortnite pro destroys controller after being dominated by one

Fortnite pro Tyler ‘HighSky’ Tereso let his opinions of controller players be known in a February 9 stream, smashing up an Xbox 360 pad to show how much he despises it.

HighSky plays for Sentinels, the organization which won the inaugural Fortnite World Cup with Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf and was playing in Creative with the world champion and some of their fellow competitors.

After being killed by controller players, HighSky had clearly had enough and smashed up a controller in a fit of rage in an attempt to make a point.

When in the lobby after their games, HighSky was evidently heated and held up an Xbox 360 controller, saying “I’m getting sh*t on by a dude on this. On this!”

“This is what’s sh*tting on me,” the streamer repeats, before asking his viewers if they want to know “how he feels about this,” unable to contain his anger.

He proceeds to get up and swing the controller like a lasso, smashing it on the ground repeatedly while yelling out random expletives to get his anger out, ensuring the controller was unusable going forward.

For a short moment, it looked like he was done, turning back to his streaming setup and showing the now-smashed controller, saying “that’s how I f**king feel about this thing.”

After confirming with his stream that it was broken, he turned back around and started swinging it over his shoulder again, making sure that it was beyond repair if it wasn’t already.

While HighSky may have been playing up to the camera a little bit, his fury is echoed across a lot of the competitive Fortnite community, who have taken serious issues with controller players in recent months.

The issue of aim assist in Fortnite has been a huge debate among the community, especially as it is stronger on PC than it is on console. A number of big names have come out to speak against aim assist in the game, including the likes of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Tom ‘72hrs’ Mulligan.

However, we haven’t seen those two destroying their equipment quite like this over the issue.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
