Fortnite hackers have been plaguing the game causing mischief and mayhem, leading popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to call on Epic Games to put a stop to the madness.

Epic Games is constantly adding new weapons, items, and fixtures to its popular battle royale, but another element of the game has players wondering what’s taking so long in finding a solution.

Ninja took to Twitter to express his displeasure revolving around hackers in Fortnite after he encountered one in a freak accident that saw the streamer’s character shot up into the air and subsequently dying.

“Killed a friendly hacker that did this 5 seconds before… then another one comes in… [Epic Games]. PLEASE,” Ninja said of the incident.

The 27-year-old was was on the hunt to complete a Weekly Challenge near Frosty Flights when he saw a hacker piloting a Quadcrasher in the vicinity.

At first, it was fun and games, as Ninja got into the backseat of the vehicle for an quiet stroll through the air.

But the after having enough time on the joyride, he disposed of the hacker and continued on only to encounter another hacker seconds later.

It appeared that the second hacker wanted to replicate a jovial moment as the first, but the incoming hacked Quadcrasher got too close and sent Ninja flying to his death.

The event left the streamer dumbfounded and utterly speechless until he took his plight to Twitter asking for the developers to finally make some changes regarding the issue.

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.
