Popular Twitch streamer and Fortnite player Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ stint in Europe has seen a plethora of notable moments – but one instance stirred a bit more controversy than the rest.

Ninja was in the midst of his ‘Night Shift’ Fortnite event in Poland when he became the unfortunate victim of stream snipers, who managed to hit him from over 209 meters away.

While Ninja put up a good fight, he ultimately lost a tense skirmish with the snipers – which led to some jokingly heated comments from the streamer.

“That’s okay, man,” Ninja said of his death. “It’s alright, dude. Now I get to commentate the entire game, dude. It’s just what I wanted to do from the beginning, anyway. It doesn’t matter.”

The sniper who took Ninja out, ‘Huuuber,’ broke out into an emote as a humorous taunt, to which Ninja made an even spicier comment.

“Just gotta – some wonderful, wonderful sportsmanship from these guys,” Ninja continued sarcastically. “…you took me out this early, got the Marshmello skin on, lookin’ fresh.”

Comments in a YouTube video of the altercation showed widespread sympathy for Ninja, with some users calling the snipers “toxic” due to sniping the streamer at his own tournament.

Some commenters weren’t too sure that Ninja was joking, after being taken out by stream snipers during his Night Shift event in Poland.

“They were probably some toxic kids who wanted to say that they could kill Ninja at school,” one wrote.

“You can tell Ninja is pissed, but he’s not showing it,” said another.

While Ninja suffered an unfortunate loss, his trip to Europe saw some lighthearted and hilarious moments – including his NSFW flub of the French language with popular streamer Gotaga during their joint stream.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
