Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why fellow streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney “complaining” about the changes in Fortnite Season 3 was unfair.

After a few setbacks and delays, Epic Games finally released Fortnite’s Season 3 on June 17, bringing along many changes to the popular battle royale title that fans were eager to try out.

Along with a flooded map, Season 3 introduced some new weapons such as the Charge Shotgun, although Tfue was not too happy about the new weapon loot pool in Fortnite, claiming that it was “rough” compared to previous seasons.

The new Fortnite season has brought plenty of changes.

Ninja, who was streaming alongside Myth shortly after the new patch dropped, responded to Tfue’s criticism and said “there’s no way” he was voicing his complaints this early into the season.

“Within the first ten or thirty minutes into the season, Turner is already complaining,” he added, before questioning the latest changes, “But like I don’t understand what they removed, there’s a new pump that adds a completely new dynamic to the game.”

He then began listing all of the weapons that had remained in-game since season 2 and was unsure of how Tfue felt that the loot pool had become worse, “I don’t understand, what did they remove that makes the loot pool trash?”

Myth chimed in, suggesting that Tfue was likely unhappy with the new shotgun, however, Ninja was quick to shoot down that suggestion claiming that even the base version of the weapon is quite powerful. “Adding the new pump does not make the loot pool rough” he argued. “The grey charge pump does point blank 180.”

Ninja even claimed that were some good weapon changes in the new update, adding that the latest burst gun changes were “a direct nerf to controller players”, something that Tfue has been heavily pushing for in recent Fortnite seasons.

Ninja explained that Tfue might’ve been a little too early to judge the new season, highlighting that he switched back to Warzone not long after the patch was released. “How are you going to play something for less than an hour and already be like ‘ugh’?” he asked,  imitating Tfue’s reaction to the latest season.

Despite Tfue’s early criticism of the changes, it seems as if he is now enjoying the battle royale title, posting a day later that the new Fortnite season is actually “fun” for him. Although the pair have been quite vocal about one another in the past, Tfue has not yet responded to Ninja’s take on his criticism.

Excitement for Fortnite’s Season 4 Nexus War finale event, which will introduce Marvel villain Galactus, is at fever pitch. From start times to how to watch live, here’s everything you need to know.

Love them or hate them, Fortnite’s crossovers with Marvel have become big business for Epic Games. Season 4 has introduced a number of skins and weapons for our favorite superheroes and villains, and it’s set to go out with a bang with the arrival of Galactus.

We don’t know too much about what will happen when the Devourer of Worlds hits the Island, but as his moniker suggests, it’s going to spell trouble; the event has been described as “an interactive Marvel movie” by Epic, and is expected to be one of the biggest events the game has ever seen.

Below, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about the Nexus War finale including start times, how to watch, leaks about another potential Black Hole scenario, and what to expect when Season 5 finally arrives.

When does the Fortnite Galactus event start?

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4:10 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event

If you want to take part in Fortnite’s Nexus War finale event, Epic recommends you log in to the game at least 60 minutes prior to the start time and date listed above, with the Event Playlist expected to go live 30 minutes before the event.

Epic have also advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat) for the best experience.

However, if you don’t want to play, and instead just want to watch the event live, you can tune in to NICKMERCS’ live stream on Twitch below.

Fortnite Galactus event: What to expect

Unfortunately, we don’t really know what to expect during the event itself, although the prevailing theory is that players will have to fight Galactus. This hasn’t been confirmed and is pure speculation, but with the hype that’s been surrounding the villain’s arrival, it would make sense.

That being said, the playlist for the event apparently states that players will have to “defend the Island to save all Reality!”, which supports that theory that we’ll have to take down Galactus himself.

We’ll just have to wait and see to find out exactly what’s going to happen during the event itself when it goes live at 4:10 PM.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

2While we may not know exactly what we’ll be doing during the event, as with everything in Fortnite, there’s a ton of leaks surrounding the event itself, giving players SOME idea of what to expect.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

It’s also been heavily rumored that there will be another Black Hole type situation once the Galactus event comes to a close. Back when Chapter 1 ended, the battle royale was stuck behind a black hole loading screen, with nothing for players to do until Chapter 2 began.

The potential return of a blackout was pointed out on November 18 by data miner FNLeaksAndInfo, who tweeted: “Prepare for some more possible downtime after the event similar to the Black Hole event!”

Beyond the event itself, it seems like players may be able to play as Galactus if some leaks are to be believed, although not in the way you’re probably thinking. It turns out there’s actually a standard-sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

On top of that, on November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
