Fortnite’s biggest Twitch streamers like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo and more are routinely chased around the island by persistent stream snipers, making this mid-match ban all the more satisfying.

Epic Games have been cracking down on cheaters in their battle royale, and the latest instance shows a swift swing from the developers’ banhammer hitting an infamous sniper at just the right time.

Ninja and his team of streamers were fighting their way out of Tilted Towers when all of a sudden their team was being heavily focused by an attacking squad from their flank.

Stream snipers haven been a thorn in Fortnite streamers' sides for a long time.

Ninja and co. stream sniped by TC Troy

The streamers initially seemed stunned at the “no-skin” players that were overwhelming them, until they got a look at who was leading the charge, saying: “Oh, its TC Troy!”

After the stream snipers had wiped most of the team, DrLupo tried to reason with the cheaters, saying: “Imma be honest, I might be dead. Hey Troy, I have 9 HP. I’m trying to get my health to 100 if you can please wait.”

They didn’t wait, instead they quickly eliminated Lupo and had their sights trained on the sole survivor, Ninja.

With a decked out inventory consisting of Rare/Epic weapons and no one left to back him up, it seemed like Ninja would have to give his final stand against the infamous stream sniper.

As the popular Twitch streamer was refilling his shields, a notification popped up on the kill feed that sent Twitch Chat in a roar of laughter.

It took the streamers a bit to realize that Troy had been taken out mid-game, but after they did there was a small cheer of justice with all the streamers synchronizing the default dance at the start screen.

Following the ban, DrLupo expressed hope that Epic Games would go so far to IP ban the sniper instead of just the account, so time will tell if the streamers have been relieved of this sniper for good.
