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.
