Tfue is now spotting Llamas from Fortnite’s Spawn Island and it’s really not fair

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney wowed fans with his ability to accurately find a Loot Llama from the Fortnite Battle Royale pre-game loading island and it could be a game changer. 

The Fortnite star is one of the most recognizable names on Twitch and in the battle royale game, attracting an army of fans wherever he goes and leaving them speechless with some of his highlight plays.

Yet, it’s his pre-game clips that are impressing fans. For the past few days, Tfue has been looking to locate Loot Llamas before dropping into games – even finding them while in the battle bus. However, he’s now taken thing one step further and found them right from the spawn island.

fazeclanTfue has dominated the Fortnite scene for quite some time – and his new trick will only make him stronger.

During his July 11 stream, the Fortnite star left thousands of fans speechless when he began looking to find a Llama in the pre-game lobby. Considering how far away the battle royale island is from the loading island, it’s a pretty monumental task to pull off.

Yet, in true Tfue fashion, he managed to aim down his sniper scope and find a tiny purple dot located in a tree in the snow biome. Clearly delighted with himself, Tfue celebrated: “Boom! They talk about my fucking Llama’s bitch. They talk about it.” 

Like the majority of his mind-blowing highlights, the clip made its way on to the FortniteCompetitive subreddit, where even those fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing.

One posted: “Bro I can’t even see it in this clip with slow motion and my face right next to the monitor Lmao.” User Lunplayz added: “How the fuck is he doing this? I know there’s a trick to it.”

Sometimes, however, Tfue even finds the Llamas when he’s not quite sure where they are. He pulled off that particular trick on July 9.  

While grabbing some food, the Fortnite star picked out a few random trees and hit his ping button to see if he could find the loot-filled item. It didn’t take long before he had his eyes on the prize but he didn’t quite celebrate – opting to get a bite to eat while dropping into his match.

Now that Tfue has picked up on it, finding a Llama is probably going to become an impressive skill that many Fortnite players try to master.

Considering just how difficult it is, we’re expecting increasingly impressive highlights as we move forward. 


FaZe Clan announce top 20 finalists for FaZe5 & what’s coming next

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
