Is Tfue cheating in Fortnite? Zayt accuses pros of using macros

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is arguably the biggest Fortnite streamer on Twitch, but is he legit? According to Williams ‘Zayt’ Aubin, he’s not, with the NRG pro accusing the former FaZe star of using “macros” to cheat in the battle royale.

Tfue is one of Fortnite’s biggest stars, not just in streaming but in esports. He rakes in tens of thousands of viewers daily on Twitch, and has participated in some of the game’s biggest esports events.

However, his legitimacy has been called into question by one pro in particular ⁠— Zayt. The NRG star has claimed that Tfue is cheating in Fortnite, using macros to gain an advantage over opponents against the FNCS rules.

Twitch: Epic Games
Tfue is the face of Fortnite on Twitch, and has appeared on stage at the Fortnite World Cup.

In a now deleted tweet from June 8, Zayt claimed that he was going to “expose all the pros that use double movement macros.” These binds allow keyboard and mouse players to move just like you are on a controller, sprinting in one direction while looking in the other.

While this is achievable with remapping your settings to have a secondary movement option for strafing left and right, some players opt to use macros to make it a bit easier. In the pro scene however, this is outright banned, as using macros are against the FNCS rules.

Under section 8.2.1 of the Fortnite competitive ruleset, “any form of unfair play is prohibited…including using macro keys or similar methods to automate in-game actions.”

Zayt’s tweet accusing six Fortnite pros, including Tfue, of using macros has since been deleted.

Zayt called out six Fortnite pros, and while he eventually turned around and rescinded his accusations against five of them, he laid down the law on Tfue. The NRG player claimed he has proof of Tfue using binds, but is yet to release it publicly.

“Tfue is [using binds] and will never get banned because he’s the biggest streamer,” the star reiterated on June 9 on Twitter. This tweet has also been deleted.

In a statement to Fortnite Intel, he said that “there’s zero evidence of anyone [cheating] except Tfue currently.”

Twitter: Zayt
Zayt doubled down on accusing Tfue of cheating.

Tfue is yet to respond to these claims made by Zayt, and he should always be presumed innocent until proven otherwise. He has been accused of cheating in the past, but all of these accusations have been shot down.

He has also been outspoken about cheaters in the past, condemning players who have teamed up or used other advantages during FNCS events. We will update you with more information as it arises.

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
