Fortnite Battle Royale World Cup solos champion Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf has reminded fans of his deadly sniping accuracy in Week 5 of the Season X Champion Series.

The young Fortnite star rose to fame earlier this year as the solos champion, and since then has taken every opportunity to show off his world-class skills in Epic’s battle royale.

The fifth week of the FNCS was no different, as Bugha teamed up with regular trio members clarityG and Stretch to run the Season X gauntlet. This time, the 16-year-old spiced things up with an early snipe prediction that came true moments later.

The trio were landing in newly implemented Moisty Palms as they looked to collect kills and victories for the competitive series, when Bugha stumbled across a heavy sniper in the first chest he found. He fired a speculative shot off at a floating opponent, just missing.

“Imagine if you hit that,” teammate Stretch said, and Bugha seemed to take that as a challenge: “I’m going to hit it, ready?”

As luck would have it, the world-famous Sentinels player landed his second shot, sending his enemy tumbling to the ground below. “I knocked him!” he yelled in triumph.

“No way, what the fuck?” Stretch replied, before revealing he had a “weird” feeling Bugha was about to land the snipe despite the 250-meter distance.

“I had a weird feeling too,” the young sniper admitted, before telling his trio the opponent he had knocked was still floating into the game.

Epic GamesBugha has gone from height to height in Fortnite since winning the World Cup.

“That was crazy man,” clarityG weighed in, and proudly declared that he couldn’t wait for his stream to see the long-range shot.

There were plenty of Bugha’s fans on-hand to enjoy the moment too, with some even revealing they would just want to be involved in the kill once it was posted to Reddit: “I would be proud to catch that bullet.”

Bugha’s wild shot in the Champion Series comes less than a week after HippieHabitat hit an incredible trickshot in the battle royale while skating on a Driftboard, leaving us with the question – is Fortnite trickshotting back on the rise in Season X?


Fortnite dev hints G.I Joe Snake Eyes collaboration could be in the works

Fortnite developer Donald Mustard hid some clues towards future content in the background of his zoom call today and a conveniently-placed G.I Joe figurine has convinced some players a collaboration could be on the cards.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration and innovation. It’s a game that knows no bounds and has collided with other characters and universes including Batman, John Wick, Marvel, and Star Wars.

Donald Mustard, the Creative Director at Epic Games, has been busy dropping hints towards future content in recent weeks. In an interview on Marvel’s ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast, he let it slip that Fortnite and Marvel would be crossing paths time and time again.

However, it seems like that isn’t all he’s got planned. Earlier today, he took part in a zoom interview with video-game journalist Geoff Keighley and dropped some hints towards future content in a creative way.

Donald Mustard scattered clues around his room

Donald Mustard used a webcam during the Zoom call. Naturally, that means viewers could see the room he was in. However, instead of covering things up left, right, and center, he embraced it and decided to play a game — the madman scattered clues hinting towards future content around the room.

“That was SO fun and SO inspiring!” he said. “Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…” he added.

Fortnite players were quick to pounce and look for clues. There were lots of bits and pieces in the shot, including a couch, a desk, an exercise bike, and paintings on the wall.

However, one item stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s gained traction on social media and convinced many Fortnite might cross paths with another popular American hero, G.I Joe.

There’s a lot of stuff hidden in the background, including a poster to Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, only one thing sticks out like a sore thumb; a boxed figure of ‘Snake Eyes’ from revived franchise G.I Joe.

Snake Eyes is an important member of the G.I Joe Team. He’s also one of the most popular characters in the story and has been involved in the story behind every G.I Joe movie and series.

Interestingly, a spin-off film dedicated entirely to him called ‘Snake Eyes’ is reportedly on the cards for production in 2021. If anything, it makes a potential Fortnite and G.I Joe collaboration all-the-more believable.

However, not everyone is convinced. Some players hope and believe Fortnite will cross paths with Star Trek instead.

It’s also possible that both of them will come into play at separate points in time. After all, Donald Mustard himself multiple clues were hidden in the background.

Either way, the hype is real, and players can’t wait to see what’s happening next in Fortnite. And, while we wait, there’s still plenty of Marvel content to enjoy too.
