FaZe’s TFUE and Fortnite Pro Vivid met in one of Fortnite’s unranked scrims, and things got a bit ugly between the two post-match.

Upon winning the scrim, massively popular streamer and pro gamer TFUE made some harsh remarks toward Vivid’s performance.

In a four-team lobby, Vivid went against TFUE in an unranked scrimmage. Vivid ultimately lost to TFUE’s team, taken out by a player with only 3 HP left. However, Vivid assured viewers that he wasn’t taking the game seriously in response to the chat’s exasperation.

“It’s just a game, man. It’s a four-team lobby. If I wanted him dead, I would have just fazed through with a drum gun and killed him… he had 3 HP left, which means he deserved to die. I shot twenty bullets at him and I was flying in the air.”

TFUE’s team win was a soaring success in his eyes. On his own stream, TFUE popped off in an R-rated celebration, making some untoward comments in regards to his opponent.

“Oh, he’s like, ‘Oh, he’s so weak, I got this! Suck my peen, dog! Get outta here, dude!”

Vivd’s response was measured, and he went on to say that he supports the Fortnite community in spite of the ill-treatment. 

“I can’t even have fun in a fucking scrim game anymore without getting shit-talked. It’s bad. I stand by the Fortnite community so much, and shit like this happens. Why would I care about a random-ass scrim with five people in it? I mean hey, if he wants to sweat and talk shit because he killed me today, his ego must need a little boost or something.”

This interaction echoes the tensions in competitive Fortnite. With $100 million on the line for the game in the 2018-2019 season, the pressure is on – and things could get even more intense in the future.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
