Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins shared some ideas on how FaZe Jarvis could get his Fortnite ban lifted, and explained why he still thinks the suspension shouldn’t be permanent.

On November 3, Jarvis uploaded an emotional video to his YouTube account where he revealed he had been permanently banned from Fortnite after openly using an aimbot in some of his videos. The harsh punishment had many in the streaming community torn.

While Ninja initially came out in strong defense of the FaZe Clan streamer, the Mixer star now thinks that he should be punished, but also believes the young Fortnite player should also be given a path to redemption, and during his broadcast shared ideas on how he could do that.

Ninja opened up the discussion by admitting that he changed his opinion on the Jarvis situation. “I’ve had a lot of time to think about my original opinion on the whole Jarvis situation, and there definitely can’t be any exceptions. But I do think his age and his status should be considered,” he said.

When his streaming partners argued that the FaZe clan streamer knew what he was doing, Ninja replied, “Right. But hopefully it’s not permanent. Maybe six months, one year.”

The Mixer star then shared an idea for how the young streamer could make things right. “There’s got to be some kind of punishment other than being banned. Community service, I dunno. Maybe a fine too.”

When his friends pushed back at the idea, Ninja quickly countered and exclaimed, “You telling me if Jarvis donated 50k to a children’s hospital, you think people would be upset about that?”

He continued to push the idea of redemption, and said that believed there can be “creative and positive ideas” used as alternatives to banning people. “You are banned from Fortnite, unless you donate 50k dollars to a charity. Everyone wins!” he finished.

Ninja took heat for his initial defense of Jarvis

Upon hearing about the FaZe Clan streamer’s ban, Ninja initially argued that banning a regular hacker is different then banning a content creator, which effectively ends their ability to make money. “You ban that kid, nothing happens. You ban Jarvis, the stakes are different, it should be handled differently,” he said.

However, after receiving some backlash, the Mixer personality said he regretted it on Twitter when he replied to a user who quoted his initial defense. “Yeah, about 20 minutes after that I realized I was wrong and regretted saying that. Won’t find that in any article or YouTube video,” he tweeted.

While Ninja’s opinion on the whole incident has changed, the Fortnite star still thinks that Epic Games’ punishment of Jarvis was too harsh, and would like to see him given a chance to redeem himself.

After giving his ideas on how the young streamer could make things right, he clarified further to his audience, and said, “He definitely needs a suspension. No matter what. Obviously don’t cheat, chat.”

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.
