Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained why he is disappointed with the lack of new items being added to Fortnite Chapter 2.

Ninja has built a massive following during his time spent on the popular battle royale game Fortnite, even breaking into the mainstream audience with appearances on shows such as Jimmy Fallon.

However, since the popular battle royale game has released Chapter 2 following the “game’s deletion,” the Fortnite star has been disappointed with Epic Games’ decision to stop adding as many new items.

epic gamesNinja is not happy with the lack of new items released in Chapter 2.

The Mixer star was playing alongside fellow streamer Dr Lupo when the pair highlighted how many content creators had shifted their focus to the new Call of Duty game instead of Fortnite.

Ninja explained that he was nervous about the game while questioning how to make it more enjoyable, saying, “Why haven’t they added anything yet? I’m so like nervous.”

DrLupo claimed that the delay in adding new items could be due to the competitive community’s past outcries over overpowered items such as the BRUTE mech being introduced and that Epic was likely waiting until the Fortnite Champion Series was over.

However, Ninja quickly disagreed with his Fortnite duo, expressing that they did not show any signs of catering to the competitive players in past years.

“There is a 0% chance that Epic Games are prioritizing not irritating the pro community over not providing new fun content, weapons, guns, and items for the other millions, if not tens of millions, who play the game casually.”

Ninja later explained his solution for Epic Games that would please everyone, saying, “They know this too, all they have to do is just add whatever they want to the game but then give it like a month or two before it goes into pro, it’s not difficult.”

The Fortnite star has been calling for Epic to add new items in Chapter 2 even before it was released, explaining why he feels that more than just a new map is needed to bring Fortnite back to its peak.


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.

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.
