Twitch megastar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins was the unfortunate victim of a crazy knockdown after getting hit by a Quadcrasher – but not by an enemy, by his own teammate!

Ninja was playing alongside Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, Timothy ‘Timthetatman’ Betar and Team Liquid’s Ryan ‘Chap’ Chapo, when the squad spotted enemies on the outskirts of Tomato Temple on the north-east side of the map.

DrLupo was driving a Quadcrasher with Blevins perched on the back when they spotted their opponents, and after an unsuccessful attempt at a backflip on the vehicle, Ninja hopped off and began to build his way up towards the players with his driver building up beside him.

Ninja fell foul of the power of Fortnite’s Quadcrasher.

As Lupo and Ninja got close to their opponents, they began to build ramps side-by-side, trying to cut off their enemies who were trying to use ramps to build above them.

Just as Blevins jumped onto a newly placed ramp, another Quadcrasher driven by Chap appeared out of nowhere, crashing into Ninja and sending him flying high into the air.

“What? What!” screamed Ninja as he soar through the air and landed on top of a tree, completely flabbergasted at what had just happened to him. “I need a pick up! What are you doing Chap!”

Ninja didn’t get much sympathy from his teammates, who burst into laughter at the event, and then focused on taking out their opponents rather than helping their fallen comrade.

Chap could only apologize for his hilarious error, before revealing that this wasn’t the first incident he’s had while piloting a Quadcrasher, saying: “Why do I always kill everyone? I’ve done it to everyone so far, I’ve killed Tim and Lupo with it, I don’t know how.”

We’re willing to bet that Ninja will definitely be keeping his eye on the Team Liquid star the next time he takes control of one of the vehicles!

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
