Fortnite star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins explains why popular content creators such as Tfue could be hurting the growth of the game.

Since Fortnite’s release in September 2017, the battle royale game has broken into mainstream culture as one of the most popular games in the world.

However, like with many titles, the hype around Fortnite has begun to die down over time and one of the game’s biggest streamers, Ninja, explained why some of the game’s top creators could be partly responsible for its decline.

NinjaNinja explains why Fortnite creators can help the game succeed.

Ninja was discussing what changes needed to be made to the matchmaking system with his FNCS squad when they started to point out the way many content creators would respond to problems they come across in-game.

Despite the fact that many are unhappy with the current state of Fortnite, Ninja explained that simply complaining about the game is not the right way to go about solving the issues.

“There’s such a good way that you can do it without making everyone think that the game is dying or dead,” he explained, “I really wish that a lot of content creators who have a lot of followers and are really big influencers were more aware of that.”

The popular streamer revealed that even he would find himself being influenced by what some of his fellow creators complain about and highlighted a specific moment where Tfue was criticizing the game.

“He was getting like 60 or 70,000 viewers and he’s talking about how the game is dogsh*t and stupid and it’s dying,” Ninja revealed, “he’s a perfect example, dude you’re literally pulling in more viewers than anyone on the platform right now, playing a game, and your drilling the game into the ground.”

Tfue has been quite vocal about some of the changes that have taken place since the release of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 and has even called it the “worst update ever” after suffering from in-game ping issues.

Although Ninja seems to remain positive about the popular battle royale game, whether or not his words will influence his fellow content creators to give constructive criticism will remain to be seen.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
