Top Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek finally tried his hand at the new Fortnite Chapter 2, but couldn’t manage more than a few hours, and said he’ll be back “next season”.

A former CS:GO pro, shroud is now best known on Twitch for his love of battle royale games, namely PUBG and Apex Legends.

Although he’s tried Fortnite in the past, it has never truly captivated him, perhaps because he has always had a preference for first-person shooters, over third-person.

Epic GamesChapter 2 of Fortnite has revitalized the game’s community.

With the excitement around the Chapter 2 launch, shroud found himself tempted to try out the new season; so did his update and jumped into some matches with fellow streamers TimTheTatman, Nate Hill and Syhmfuhny on October 18.

It didn’t take long before Grzesiek was reminded of the reasons he has previously stopped playing Epic’s BR game before, comparing it to Respawn’s Apex Legends.

“I’m not going to lie, playing this game makes Apex look three hundred times better,” shroud said, “It really makes me appreciate Apex more, so I’m kind of glad I’m playing.”

After just over three hours of playing, and without much success, shroud decided he had finally had enough.

He came up against a highly skilled builder, and it became clear that despite his best efforts, he was simply no match for the experienced opponents who played the game more regularly.

“I can’t play this game anymore, I’m too bad,” a defeated shroud explained, “I can’t get owned any longer, it’s too hard, I’ll play it next year, next season.”

Unlike a handful of other top streamers, shroud’s viewership doesn’t expect a lot of Fortnite gameplay from him anyway, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a disappointment to most of his fans.

For now, it looks as though he will be returning to Apex Legends, at least until the new Call of Duty, Modern Warfare, arrives on October 25.

Fortnite has been teasing the arrival of a Predator skin throughout Season 5, and now he’s finally arrived on The Island. Here’s how to unlock his skin.

Season 5 of Fortnite has introduced a number of exciting crossover skins to tie in with its ‘bounty hunter’ theme, including The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and Halo’s Master Chief. So what’s next? Well, it’s the Predator’s turn now.

The terrifying character first appeared in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s hit 1987 movie Predator and went on to spawn a massive franchise of sequels and spin-offs. He’s easily one of the most recognizable characters in movie history.

There have been plenty of hints about Predator’s arrival already given throughout Season 5, including the alien warrior’s logo appearing on a door, a helicopter crash site, and a truck being used as a generator like in the movie.

It’s now been confirmed that Predator has landed in Fortnite, and fans are pretty hyped for his arrival. Here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the skin so you can use it yourself.

How to unlock the Predator skin in Fortnite

Following the v15.21 update, players who have purchased the Season 5 Battle Pass will be able to see a new Mystery Rewards section, which is where you can view the Jungle Hunter Quests that need to be completed to unlock Predator cosmetics.

As you can see in the Battle Pass menu below, unlocking the Predator skin requires you to complete one very challenging task: Defeat Predator. This won’t be easy, and it’s recommended you do it in Squads to get some support.

To defeat Predator, you’ll need to head to Stealthy Stronghold and locate him. He’s incredibly agile and will utilize his Cloaking Device to turn almost invisible, so taking him down will be a very difficult task.

There will also be plenty of other players trying to complete this challenge and unlock Predator, so it’s going to be mayhem. We’ve put together a guide to defeating Predator that might help you in your mission.

How to unlock Predator emote, back bling & pickaxe

As well as the Predator skin, players with the Battle Pass can unlock a Yautja Wristblades pickaxe, a Hunter’s Trophy back bling, The Hunt loading screen, a Bio-Helmet Online emote, and a Hunter’s Arsenal weapon wrap.

Here are the Jungle Hunter Quests you’ll need to complete to unlock them all:

  • Find mysterious pod (Banner Icon)
  • Talk with Beef Boss, Remedy, and Dummy (Logo Emote)
  • Collect Medkits (Graffiti Spray)
  • Collect Legendary Weapons or rarer (Loading Screen)
  • Defeat Predator (Predator Skin)
  • Complete a Bounty as Predator (Hunter’s Trophy Back Bling)
  • Visit Predator’s apartment in Hunter’s Haven as Predator (Bio-Helmet Online Emote)
  • Spend 30 seconds within 10 meters of a player as Predator (Yautja Wristblades Pickaxe)
  • Deal damage while thermal is active as Predator (Hunter’s Arsenal Weapon Wrap)

The Bio-Helmet Online emote in particular is one you’ll definitely want to unlock, as it allows the player to remove Predator’s mask and reveal the horrifying face underneath.

We have a feeling this will become a fan favorite in Fortnite very quickly.
