Hilarious clip of Ninja and TimTheTatman perfectly sums up the latest update in Fortnite

Nothing quite sums up the recent v6.30 update quite like today’s clip of popular streamers Ninja and TimTheTatman playing Fortnite.

Getting in some squads matches, the Twitch superstars started one of the games by going to Tilted Towers and landing on top of the Clock Tower.

What followed was absolute mayhem as they and an enemy player that also landed there began hacking each other with their pickaxes, which, following the update, now do 20 melee damage instead of 10.

While Tim ended up being saved by Ninja, the chaos did not end there. After the pickaxe warfare ended, the team immediately found themselves in the midst of further pandemonium, this time involving one of the brand new Mounted Turrets that were added to the game as part of the update. 

In a hilarious sequence of events, Tim found himself in the seat of the Turret and began destroying the walls of the Clock Tower. He ended up breaking one too many walls as behind the last one was an enemy player on yet another Turret, which eliminated their whole squad.

If this hilarious bedlam does not perfectly represent the effect that this latest update has had in Fortnite, then it’ll be hard to find one that does.

Heavy pickaxe damage followed by Turrets facing each other, the only thing missing from this was someone dying to fall damage because they no longer had Glider Re-Deploy available.

It is scenarios like the one shown in the clip that has a lot of players displeased with the v6.30 patch, with some even calling it one of the worst in recent months.

A major reason for that is the addition of Mounted Turrets, which have received two major nerfs in as many days since being added to the game.

Fortnite Galactus skin leaked ahead of Season 4 finale event

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
