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. 


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
