Fortnite pro Tfue reveals the perfect counter to the Baller

The Baller has been a nuisance for players since it was added in Fortnite’s 8.10 patch, but FaZe Tfue found the perfect counter for players rolling through with the help of a Boogie Bomb.

After Fortnite took out the controversial X-4 Stormwing from the game, they released the Baller soon after which caused a different kind of headache for the game’s community.

Even though Tfue joked about being reluctant to share his “secrets” with his community, he encountered quite a bit of Ballers throughout his playthrough which showed exactly how to dispose of the pesky players.

The key lies within the very underappreciated Boogie Bomb with its ability to force players to bust a move regardless of what they’re doing. Tfue explained what he was planning to do with the bombs in tow.

“Bro I hate to give away my secrets, you know,” Tfue said. “…When [my Baller] gets blown up, I got Boogie Bombs. I’ll just Boogie Bomb someone out of their Baller and I got a SPAS right to their dome. And if they don’t die from that SPAS shot, I got them with a gold P90.”

The streamer is later seen doing just that when over 30 players were fighting for space in a cramped circle.

Knowing that someone in a Baller was coming through, he peeked out of his enclosure and threw down a Boogie Bomb straight onto them.

This made the driver unexpectedly exit his vehicle where he was immediately eliminated by the FaZe player.

Though the counter my be simple in its approach, Boogie Bombs are a Rare utility item and even when a player does find them their usefulness is incredibly situational.

If a player doesn’t mind the bombs taking up a slot, then carrying a few around seem to be the most effective way for preventing Ballers from ruining a match.


Epic Games tease more “exclusive” content coming for Fortnite Crew members

According to a brand-new leaked survey, Epic Games have been asking players what they might want to see added as a feature to the Fortnite Crew subscription service, hinting that they’re open to changing up what’s included in the future.

If you took a look at the Fortnite Crew subscription service and thought that it didn’t include enough or didn’t include much that you’d be interested in, Epic Games may be heeding those concerns.

According to Fortnite leaker ‘iFireMonkey,’ a brand-new survey sent out to Fortnite players might indicate that the developer might be open to changing up what a Fortnite Crew subscription comes with. Specifically, the survey asks players to rank what benefits would be most or least important to be added to the service.

Currently, the Fortnite Crew service includes an exclusive skin, some V-Bucks and a free battle pass.

The question itself features a wide range of choices. Some are simply new ways to purchase Fortnite Crew subscriptions, like the ability to buy the service in retail stores and multi-month options.

There are also more gameplay-centric choices, including everything from custom matchmaking options to cosmetics that show off how long you’ve had a subscription. Beyond that, there’s even a choice for a monthly physical mailer with additional rewards outside of what’s given digitally.

Despite this development, it remains to be seen if the company will actually implement any changes. While this survey might indicate that the company is, at the very least, open to adding features to the service, it’s important to remember that it’s not a guarantee that they will.

Currently, the service includes a free battle pass, an exclusive Crew pack, 1000 V-Bucks and an exclusive Member’s Only emote (at least for a limited time), so the implementation of any one of the features listed in the leaked survey would be a welcome addition, especially after its rocky start.

For any updates regarding new features in the Fortnite Crew service and Fortnite in general, keep it locked to Dexerto.
