Ninja will take desperate measures to have planes removed from Fortnite

Ninja will take desperate measures to have planes removed from Fortnite

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has revealed just how close he is to quitting Fortnite until Epic Games removes the X-4 Stormwing planes from the game.

The attack plane, which was added with the start of season 7, has received nerfs since its addition but remains a powerful weapon in the Battle Royale game. Its ability to destroy buildings remains an issue for players - both professional and casual.

Not even Ninja is immune to their powers as demonstrated on his December 23 stream. Playing alongside fellow streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, Ninja was knocked off his building by a diving plane, knocking him backwards and killing him. 

He wasn't happy about it, to say the least.

“You want to hop onto another game?” Ninja immediately asked CouRage after being eliminated by the plane. “I’m this close, this close [make gesture with finger and thumb] to getting off dude. I’m so close to never playing until they remove planes dude."

“I’m literally turbo building and I’m getting shot through my build," Ninja added. CouRage tried to bring some humour to the situation, jokingly saying: “We got outplayed bro, that’s the only way to put it. They’re just better."

It’s not the first time Ninja has voiced his concerns about the game and its developer. Earlier in December, the hugely popular streamer called on Epic Games to look at finding a solution for its many stream snipers and cheaters.

Some fans and streamers may be vocal against them but planes don't look to be going away anytime soon. It remains to be seen if Ninja was being entirely serious or not, however, him threatening to quit the game may force Epic to make some changes.
