Australian Fortnite pro Kai “Kquid” Eaton has been accused of using aimbot after he was surprisingly banned mid-game during Week 1 of the FNCS Invitational.

Following the announcement that Epic Games would be hosting another major tournament in the form of the FNCS invitational which started on May 2 and featured many of the biggest stars from each region, fans were eager to see who would come out on top.

Among those competing in the OCE region was pro player Kquid, who has managed to place well at multiple Fortnite events in the past, most notably a fifth-place finish at the Australian 2020 Summer Smash Open, although he was not so lucky during the FNCS invitational.

After qualifying for the event with some impressive results in Fortnite’s Chapter 2 events, Kquid was banned mid-game during the first week of the ongoing FNCS event, leaving many viewers surprised as to why.

However, fellow Fortnite star and YouTuber SerpentAU has now spoken out against the pro, initially accusing him of using aim assist for keyboard and mouse on the popular battle royale title.

Serpent uploaded a short video with multiple screenshots, with the first few highlighting some of the files and applications needed for the aim assist hacks.

It was also pointed out in the video that some of those same files, which are used for masking and operating the cheat, were apparently visible on Kquid’s desktop during one of his earlier streams.

Serpent followed up by attempting to refute some of Kquid’s claims, that he was having PC issues, in his response to the ban, adding that it “wouldn’t make sense” for a PC that has recently been factory reset to cause the star a suspension.

Serpent continued with his accusations and later claimed that he had “used literal aimbot,” while showing some clips of the pro’s gameplay during tournaments.

Despite the claims made against Kquid, the reason for his Fortnite ban still remains unclear, and based on previous suspensions issued to pro players, it is unlikely that Epic Games will reveal the cause publicly.

The Fortnite event is still set to continue without the Australian star, however, and you can keep up with all of the tournament’s action on our FNCS Invitational hub here.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
