Fortnite streamer Luke ‘MrDeadMoth’ Munday has pleaded guilty to common assault after he attacked his pregnant partner in December 2018 during a livestream.

The Australian was streaming on his Twitch channel in December 2018 when he broadcasted himself physically assaulting his pregnant partner just out of frame of his webcam during a heated row.

His partner, who was pregnant with their third child at that time, angered the streamer after trying to divert his attention away from the game, leading to Munday leaving his desk and apparently hitting her. Fortunately, she suffered no serious injuries, but was left shaken by the incident.

The streamer was arrested shortly after the incident.

In the immediate aftermath, Munday was banned on Twitch for 14 days and was subject of intense criticism online due to his inexcusable actions. Nevertheless, once his ban was over, he continued to stream, leading to even more scrutiny from the online community.

Munday’s partner – Claire Campbell – filed for an Apprehended Violence Order after the attack, which would have prevented the streamer from having contact with his partner or their children.

MrDeadMoth was eventually rebanned after returning to Twitch.

The 26-year-old appeared at court in Sydney on Monday, July 8, according to ABC, and pleaded guilty to common assault stating to police: “I just held her down because I wanted her to stop.”

Furthermore, the statement reveals the attack took place in direct view of Munday’s two young children, who witnessed the incident in full. Back in 2011, he was charged with malicious damage, but the offences were not domestic related.

Munday is believed to had showed remorse for his actions and will be sentenced on August 26.

In New South Wales the maximum penalty for this offence is 24 months imprisonment and a fine of $5,500. However, if deemed suitable by the court, offenders could face even more time behind bars.

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
