Anyone who watches Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins' Twitch streams will know he’s a talented Fortnite player, but the streamer gave viewers a lesson on why you shouldn’t get too cocky during his Monday, July 29 stream.
Ninja is back from the Fortnite World Cup, and following the excitement of the weekend, hopped straight back into the Battle Bus in search of Victory Royales and cool eliminations.
After stalking down an opponent near Paradise Palms, the streamer looked set to dominate another enemy in style, until his cocky behaviour turned out to be his hilarious downfall.
As the 28-year-old and teammate EG MoNsTeR attempted to push out of the racing track in the south-east corner of the map, Ninja came across an opponent, who he quickly lobbed a Boogie Bomb at.
With the enemy stuck dancing uncontrollably, the former Halo pro chased him down, lobbing more of the musical devices at him, before finally trapping him underneath a balcony, placing traps around the opponent to easily pick him off.
Things didn’t work out for Ninja though, as his trap only dealt 150 damage, leaving his opponent with 50 health, who duly whipped out a shotgun and blasted the streamer into oblivion, despite Ninja’s dominance.

The Twitch streamer was left stunned, unable to grasp how he managed to throw away what looked like a simple kill, and one he would definitely have been able to clean up with ease had he not tried to mess with his opponent.
After staring into his camera with a look of absolute shock, Ninja finally let out a yell of “Bro!” before explaining what happened to his teammate - although he handily left out that he had been tracking him in the build up to the battle.
Thankfully, the streamer’s embarrassing error didn’t cost his team the victory, as EG MoNsTeR was able to find the remaining kills they needed to win the match - although it’s sure to be a while before his chat lets him live that one down!
