Twitch megastar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins came across an ingenious stream sniper while finishing a game of Fortnite Battle Royale.

Blevins was playing squad matches alongside Ben ‘Dr Lupo’ Lupo, Trevor ‘IAmTrevorMay’ May and Timothy ‘timthetatman’ Betar, when Ninja and Dr Lupo found themselves as the last two remaining players on their team, with just one opponent left.

As the pair searched for the final enemy, Ninja spotted their opponent building to their south, but it quickly became obvious that they weren’t building a shelter, but rather building a message to Blevins and Lupo.

“Oh my God dude,” laughed Ninja, as he watched the artist get to work. “It’s the Black Knight who spells. How does he do this?”

“You know what’s funny? He’s going as fast as he can because he wants to be considerate,” quipped IAmTrevorMay.

The squad sat and watched, trying to guess what he was trying to spell out. Eventually, it became hilariously clear that the stream sniper was typing out “WAIT…”, hoping that the famous duo wouldn’t take him out before he was finished.

Just as he finished his masterpiece, the player then began to use the wait emoji, which was recently added to the game.

“Are you kidding me?” chuckled Blevins. “Look at him, he’s doing the wait!”

Ninja then flew over to the platform the enemy player was on, and patiently stood and watched the character tapping away on its phone and blowing bubble gum balloons, while Ninja and his squad giggled at this funny moment.

Unfortunately for the Black Knight, Ninja eventually lost patience and as the player performed the ‘Tada!’ emote, Ninja blasted him with Heavy Sniper to win the game, to cries of laughter from his teammates.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

The map used in the Box Fight Tournament was created by two winners of the Princess Castle Creative Contest.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been any news on potential prizes yet. However, it will probably follow a similar system used in Wild Wednesdays. Keep in mind that these aren’t final, and they will be updated once more information is available.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
