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!


Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
