Luminosity Streamer ‘SypherPK’ Celebrates a Fortnite Win Too Early and Pays the Awkward Price

One of the worst things that can happen when playing video games is celebrating a victory or triumph too early and then paying the awkward price.

The embarrassment of such a situation gets even more amplified when it happens live on stream in front of thousands of viewers.

This was the case for Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan, who is a Fortnite: Battle Royale streamer and player for the Luminosity Gaming esports organization.

SyherPK, who is a weekly participant of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ tournament, proved that even the best and most veteran of Fortnite players can find themselves commiting rookie mistakes.

SypherPK was live-streaming Fortnite on Twitch on May 27th and found himself in a 1v1 situation at the end of one of his matches. Judging from the playstyle of his lone opponent, it appeared that the streamer was far more superior and was destined to get the Victory Royale.

As he knocked his opponent down, he did a celebratory emote in-game, figuring that the player’s fall would eliminate him. However, the opponent somehow survived and began shooting at SypherPK from below.

As he quickly tried to regain his attacking position, the platform on which he was standing on was destroyed, and the subsequent fall eliminated him and gave the opponent the unlikely victory.

SypherPK’s hilarious roar of rage at the end of the video was inspired by a mixture of disbelief and embarrassment, as he knew that his large number of viewers had witnessed him commit a cardinal sin in online gaming. 

Ironically, the emote that he used prematurely was the new ‘Take 14’ emote, which is a reference to re-shooting another take in filmmaking, much how he had to redo the sequence after initially thinking he had won.

What added insult to injury was when a look at the replay in slow motion revealed that the opponent player’s fall had left him with minimal health, while SypherPK’s fall from about the same height had completely eliminated him.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
