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.
