Mega-popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins isn’t buying the validity of a Fortnite mobile player’s score in the recent Pop-Up Cup.

AdamXLegend, a solely Fortnite mobile player, racked up 36 points in the December 24 Solo Pop Up Cup, impressing fans with his insane in-game skill. 

He posted a video of his achievement to Twitter – showcasing the clip that got him to magical 36 points mark.

However, Ninja wasn’t buying it and hinted at the fact that AdamXLegend could be using a device other than his mobile phone to make him a better player such as a Gamepad. 

A Gamepad allows players to plug in their phone into a portable controller that looks like an Xbox pad, using that instead of their touchscreen.


After Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop asked him on stream had he seen the clip, Ninja replied: “I saw it. I mean, is there video proof of him like holding a phone?” implying that something did not sit right with the video. “Apparently, it’s legit,” replied CouRage, defending what AdamXLegend had achieved.

“I mean, how do you know it’s legit? Have you seen it?” asked Ninja. “There are GamePads, dude. I wouldn’t, unless I saw the dude playing on Mobile – GamePad free – I wouldn’t trust any mobile [score/player].”

It remains to be seen if this suspicion from Ninja forces mobile players to reveal if they are playing on their device normally or with some sort of external help such as GamePad or Bluetooth controller.


AdamXLegend has not posted a response to Ninja and has not tweeted since December 26.

However, if there is a response you can be sure to get all the updates right here at Dexerto.
