Former professional Halo player turned battle royale streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins committed to not swearing on stream after his massive growth on Twitch and has since commented on how much others swear in comparison. 

His Fortnite streams are watched by hundreds of thousands of viewers and in an effort to maintain a positive impact on younger audience member the former pro has dedicated himself to keeping content PG as often as possible.

Those who are unfamiliar with the update in his stream content and prefer to watch something a little more explicit can take comfort in the fact that he also hosts ‘Ninja After Dark’ streams that feature mature content. 

Longtime viewers of his content remember the days when he used to erupt in explicit rage, but the streamer believes the change has had a positive impact.

While watching other streamers during KEEMSTAR’s Friday Fortnite Tournament he commented about how he has developed an on the air filter.

“I’m really really really getting good at having that filter where, like, when I’m off stream. Like I just went up stairs and like swore to Jess about some stuff, got like heated. Not about her, obviously. You know, and I can come back down stairs and not say, you know, anything. And that took me a long time, to be able to do that.”

The decision to limit swearing in his streams has had an impact on the people he plays games with, for good or for bad.

Other streamers like Myth have commented on how they are aware of using swearing to fill dead air and the impact those words can have on younger viewers.

With Ninja’s influence in the gaming community, it is possible that others could follow suit and reduce their use of explicit language.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.
