Ninja and Tfue frustrated by “secret” buff in latest Fortnite update

After the latest 12.10 update to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, numerous players, including streaming stars Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, are getting very annoyed by an apparently unmentioned buff to some of game’s newest additions.

The new loot vaults offer an exciting way for Fortnite players to jumpstart their chances at a Victory Royale – but with several henchmen and a unique boss guarding the golden goods, it makes the heist challenging for even the most talented squads in the game.

However, successfully getting in and out of the vaults has supposedly gotten harder, without even a mention of this change in the patch notes of the latest update.

Reaching the vaults in Fortnite has become even more dangerous.

Yet, two of the most popular avid Fornite players are insistent that Epic Games have buffed the henchmen that patrol the areas outside the vaults.

“Anyone sick of these bots? I just got aim-botted right now,” the star of Mixer said on stream after getting peppered by an alerted henchman.

“They buffed the henchmen,” he relayed to his group of SypherPK, Reverse2k, and FaZe Funk. His teammates agreed with him “100 percent,” saying that they were “getting lasered all day.”

Tfue also had his own struggles with the boss Midas, as well as other AI enemies at The Agency.

This claim has been made by more than just some frustrated pros, as players at all levels have noticed a huge increase in AI accuracy as of late. With henchmen now carrying Heavy Snipers, they’ve only become more dangerous.

Players are scratching their heads as to why the AI henchmen’s aim was so high to begin with, and why it’s allegedly been increased even more. 

The assumption is that because of the amount of high-quality loot that is located at the vaults, Epic wanted to increase the difficulty of getting to those weapons. However, players are confused as to why the supposed change wasn’t included in patch notes.

Players are also complaining that the improved aim only makes the new locations more chaotic and frustrating, as they now have to deal with the AI as much as, or even more so, than other players.

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).
