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.

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
