Ninja apologizes after falsely rage reporting a Fortnite player for stream sniping

Ninja became upset after an elimination and reported a player for allegedly stream sniping him.

However, the player in question claimed he did nothing wrong and became worried that he would be banned for no reason, forcing Ninja to publicly apologize.


The incident started after Ninja was eliminated and teammate Dr. Lupo said “watch for the emote.” Lupo was apparently referencing a typical reaction of players who emote when they see their spectator count go up.

But when the player did emote, Ninja interpreted that as stream sniping, thinking the emote was because the player heard Dr. Lupo telling him to. 


Emoting after an elimination is a common reaction, but Ninja called the player an idiot and immediately reported him for stream sniping.

“Stream sniping” is when someone gains an advantage by watching a streamer’s broadcast while playing against them. It is the most common in Battle Royale games, where information on a player’s location is crucial.

Ninja said, “I’m going out of my way to get this guy banned.” He also pulled out his phone, seemingly going around the in-game reporting system to directly contact someone from Epic.

He did not cool down after reporting the player, instead choosing to call out viewers in the chat who disagreed with him.

The player in question was identified as IcyFive and became nervous that his account would be banned; he tweeted he did nothing wrong, even claiming to have a video that proves it.

“I emoted cause there were 6 people watching me and I lasered you. I didn’t stream snipe you,” said IcyFive.

Dr. Lupo distanced himself from the incident immediately, saying he did not believe the player was stream sniping and that the emote was an expected reaction when seeing spectators go up after an elim.


When pressured as to why he did not question Ninja’s behavior, Dr. Lupo explained himself.

Ninja offered up an apology, saying he was sorry but simultaneously blamed IcyFive for “milking it” and “playing the victim.”

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
