Reddit shows YouTuber HappyPower breaking Fortnite EULA and gets him removed from Support-A-Creator

Epic’s new Support-a-Creator program has caused a fair amount of drama in a short period, the latest of which is a YouTuber who was removed from the program after a post on Reddit shot to the top of /r/FortniteBR.

HappyPower is a YouTuber with over 450,000 subscribers and, until this morning, was a part of Epic’s program that allows Fortnite players to share the wealth with some of their favorite content creators when they spend V-bucks in game.

He was removed from the program after a post on Reddit’s /r/FortniteBR by /u/AIexTheGOD showed a tweet where HappyPower explained how to avoid bans after modding the game.

Sad this is someone who Fortnite added into Support-A-Creator from r/FortNiteBR

Any mods to the game go against Epic’s End User License Agreement (EULA), even just changes to cosmetic skins like the Rainbow Skull Trooper featured in Happy’s tweet.

The YouTuber went back to Twitter to call the person who posted the original tweet on Reddit a “little shit.” That tweet has since been deleted but the screenshot of it was posted on Reddit.

Happy Power seems upset :rage: He feels. He was wrongly taken out from r/FortNiteBR

Not deleted is another series of tweets from HappyPower where he says “The color change of Skin didn’t break TOS,” but that is incorrect.

From the Fortnite End User License Agreement:” [You may not] (e) reverse engineer, derive source code from, modify, adapt, translate, decompile, or disassemble it or make derivative works based on it; (f) remove, disable, circumvent, or modify any proprietary notice or label or security technology included in it; (g) create, develop, distribute, or use any unauthorized software programs to gain advantage in any online or other game modes.”

What HappyPower was promoting would fall under ‘modify’ and is certainly a violation of the EULA.

While Rainbow Skull Trooper does not provide a competitive advantage because only the modder can see the color change, creating an advantage is not a requirement when determining if an act violated the EULA.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s rumored there will be another blackout between Season 4 and Season 5

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
