FaZe Clan pro Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has seen his patience run out when it comes to stream snipers.

The popular streamer and YouTuber was visibly frustrated after being targeted by stream snipers while live-streaming Fortnite, and wants them to start getting banned.

Playing Fortnite alongside Team Liquid pro ’72HRS,’ the pair ran into some enemy players far from the safe zone whose intentions were set on finding and engaging the two pros. 

After getting eliminated by them, Tfue went on a mini rant, expressing his frustrations and claiming that he was going to start taking action.

“Yeah people are actually so lame. Bro, it’s just funny to me that the zone was on the opposite side of the map and we’re corner capping and people are pushing us. I don’t understand man, it’s one thing to just want to fight us, but it’s like… bro. These guys are literally, they don’t even care if they die. It’s so bad. […] I’m about to just start getting people fucking banned. Shit like that is just ridiculous dude. We’re literally corner capping and we’re getting pushed. The zone is legitimately Greasy [Grove] dude, that’s where the center of the zone is. Like straight Shifty [Shafts], Flush [Factory], and shit.” 

It’s easy to tell that Tfue was upset by what had happened to them in the match before, and few can blame them.

Getting stream sniped can be one of the most frustrating things for streamers, and despite stream delays and covering the screen when loading into a match, it seems that there’s always some snipers that slip through the cracks. 

Most developers of battle royale games have generally listened and acted when big-name content creators reach out to them regarding specific accounts they suspect of being stream snipers.

As long as Tfue can prove his in-game opponents are stream sniping, Epic Games is likely to get those players’ accounts suspended and even banned.


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.
