Sometimes skill doesn’t purely determine the outcome of matches in Fortnite Battle Royale, as popular streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop was strongly reminded of while playing.
While live-streaming the game on November 26, CouRage encountered an in-game experience that he likely not going to forget anytime soon.
Finding himself in an end-game situation with just one other enemy player left alive, the streamer expertly placed himself in a position where he was most likely to succeed.
He established high ground position, giving him an advantage over the opponent, while also setting down two of the overpowered Mounted Turrets, which is a good way to overcome the cooldown period of each Turret.
CouRage’s position and set up were good enough that, combined with his strong skill, most would bet money that he was going to win the match.
His opponent however had a totally different outcome in mind as the two engaged in their gunfight.

Despite his strong position, despite his two Mounted Turrets, despite having already weakened the player with an expertly placed shotgun blast, everything was turned on its head by a single incredible snipe.
And by everything we really mean everything, as even CouRage hilariously tumbled to the ground at his streaming setup, overwhelmed by the disbelief and shock that he had just been on the wrong end of an absolutely nasty shot.
What adds insult to injury was that the enemy player, appropriately named ‘Maneatingpillow,’ was left with just one health point at the end, which the streamer pointed out by yelling “ONE?!” from his knees.
