Fortnite streamer CouRage hilariously loses his mind as he tries FaZe Cizzorz’s famous ‘Death Run’ obstacle course

FaZe Cizzorz’s famous ‘Death Run’ obstacle course in Fortnite Battle Royale has driven many to the brink of insanity, and its latest victim is popular Twitch streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop. 

With so many prominent Fortnite pro players and content creators trying their hand at the impossibly difficult course, CouRage felt that the time was right for him to attempt to conquer the challenge.

The experience began comfortably for the streamer, who began boasting about how easy the course was for him after he quickly completed the first of nine levels. 

However, “easy” turned to “hard” then to “dumb” in a matter of moments as he realized just how difficult the course actually became once he passed the early stages.

As he repeatedly failed to make routine jumps and got caught in trap after trap, the frustration began to build and his reactions became more and more desperate and ridiculous. 

Of course, from a viewer’s perspective, the whole ordeal was very much hilarious, especially when certain events took place during the stream that provoked CouRage into further levels of irritation.

For example, there was a moment when his father came into the room and, upon seeing his son’s failures, comically remarked “it’s almost as bad as 0-15,” alluding to CouRage’s infamous 0-15 performance during a wager match in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. 

Others present in the chat at the time included the course’s creator Cizzorz, as well as Ninja, who kept donating bits and poking fun at CouRage’s struggles. 

While watching someone struggle on that course may be funny, actually trying to beat it can be a horrible experience, especially because the levels get progressively harder and to the point where it almost seems impossible.

The course is not impossible, however, as two players have managed to beat it at incredible speeds, including the current record holder who completed it in under five minutes

With so many in the community trying their hand at the Death Run, Cizzorz has given players until the start of the new year to try and beat the current time, and the one who holds the fastest completion time will win a cash prize. 


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.
