Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is well known for breaking records on Twitch, but the American has also set an incredible record on the game he has become famous playing, Fortnite Battle Royale.

The streamer rose to prominence on Twitch thanks to Fortnite, with the game propelling Blevins to the very top of Twitch, and even into traditional media like his appearance on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

While Ninja is notorious for his entertaining broadcasts which are always full of hilarious moments, it’s his skills on the popular battle royale title that got people talking on Thursday, December 27.

Fans who watch his YouTube channel know that Ninja wins a lot of matches, but what you might not realize is that Ninja has become the first player to win 5000 Fortnite matches on PC.

This is an incredible feat on its own, but it’s made even more impressive by the fact that Blevins has played 13,500 games of Fortnite, leaving the streamer with a win percentage of 37%, averaging one win every 3 games.

Alongside this, the American also holds the record for most total kills across all platforms at 94.000, with his kill to death ration sitting at 11, meaning Ninja eliminates 11 enemies per game on average.

Ninja became the first PC player to hit 5000 wins.

While Ninja may be the most popular streamer on Twitch, he isn’t without his detractors. Blevins appeared on an episode of WIRED’s Autocomplete Interview series on December 26, which quickly became the most disliked edition of the series yet, something which fellow Fortnite streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman called “ridiculous.”

However, fans of the American have an exciting event to look forward to, as Ninja is hosting his very own New Years Eve party streaming live from Times Square in New York City.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
