Australian Fortnite YouTuber Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott showed that it’s actually possible to win a match without ever moving, at all.

After a few attempts, LazarBeam developed his do-nothing strategy of sitting on flagpoles and hoping he doesn’t get spotted by opposing players.

While his first try was going decently well, he got unlucky with the zones, and found himself in a situation where the storm would eliminate him.

In his second attempt, the YouTuber fell victim to a helicopter, causing him to place at a less-than-stellar 73.

Eventually, the entertainer came up with a big-brain plan to ensure he’d win without moving – but it would take a bit of luck to make work.

“The problem is, you have to get a perfect circle in this, it takes hours,” he stated, not referencing the American rock band of the same name. “Even if I get a perfect circle, people die too slowly. There’s too many alive.”

As part of LazarBeam’s epiphany, he realized that he could use his friend ‘mrfreshasian’ to do all the heavy lifting for him.

“My friend Fresh is one of the best players in the world,” he said. “I’ll stream snipe him without him knowing and he’s going to kill the entire lobby so quick that it’s going to be just me and him left, and then I’m going to run into his room and unplug his PC.”

LazarBeam’s stationary attempts weren’t working at first.

And with that, the Australian basically became Tom Cruise – because he was embarking on a near-impossible mission.

His final attempt went pretty smoothly at first, with the entertainer hiding in a tree while his friend went ahead to kill the entire lobby.

After lucking out on zones and making it to the top 10, Fresh continued to rack up kills keeping the dream alive, much to the delight of LazarBeam who cheered “like a parent at a soccer game.”

LazarBeam had to hijack Fresh’s computer.

Once Fresh managed to kill the third remaining player, it was the YouTuber’s time to strike as he ran into his friend’s room and executed the last step of his master plan by taking control of his PC and exiting Fortnite earning the victory royale.

“Holy sh*t!” he cried in glee at the outcome. “I sat all game and I got the victory royale.”

So, while Eacott proved it was possible to win at Fortnite without moving, it’s not something that’s super feasible for those at home – unless you happen to live with a God-tier gamer and get insanely lucky.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
