Popular Twitch streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has explained why Fortnite has “felt unsatisfying” for him to broadcast in recent months, citing a variety of issues plaguing the game.

With the release of Valorant’s closed beta, many of the top pros and streamers have shifted their attention to Riot Games’ new FPS, with some even announcing their departure from Epic Games’ title.

During his April 11 broadcast, streamer SypherPK explained what he thought of the biggest streaming stars, such as DrLupo and Courage, leaving Fortnite lately and revealed why he thinks the game has lost its fun.

SypherPK claims that his Fortnite games “don’t feel satisfying” in recent months.

Sypher, who has been one of the top streamers since the game’s launch, reflected on the current state of Fortnite and explained to his viewers how players were no longer excited to queue up each day.

“What happened to playing squads in the morning with the boys, people were excited to watch the content creators get on and squad up and try out the new content,” he said, highlighting some of the game’s most entertaining points.

“Do you notice that every time we’ve played squads in the last 6 months, it devolves into us going ‘Oh my god, we’re just getting stream sniped by sweaty players,’” he added.

He explained that, with the addition of skill-based matchmaking, playing Fortnite as a streamer had become much more difficult than before, “with SBMM there’s a smaller pool of people to play with, which means it’s easier to get stream sniped.”

Sypher also highlighted some issues with the current map state and meta, claiming, “you spend most of the lobby trying to find people because everyone’s dead in the first ten minutes so the games themselves don’t feel satisfying to play out.”

He also shared that it had become nearly impossible to play with other streamers, such as Ninja or NICKMERCS, because of SBMM and that the feature was ‘throwing the fun out’ of Fortnite.

In general, SypherPK thinks that content creation has been totally “ruined”, for numerous reasons. “On all fronts, random duos, squads with the boys, checking out new content, just ruined.”

He also criticized Epic Games for their lack of communication for the competitive scene too.

This is not the first time that Sypher has raised concerns around the potential downfalls of SBMM and previously explained why he believes it is ruining Fortnite for casual players.

Rocket Launchers are in short supply in Fortnite Season 5, Chapter 2, and there’s one location on the map where you can get not just the explosive weapon, but also a Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle as well. 

Epic Games‘ battle royale game that used to be full of challenges and Battle Pass rewards has seen its system shaken up in Season 5. The arrival of The Mandalorian puts great emphasis on collecting bounties, with NPC characters spread right across the island.

In their hands, as you might expect, is a variety of loot. Some are holding better things than others as well, ranging from Mythic to Epic weapons – and more.

There’s one location where players can actually grab themselves a weapon found nowhere else on the map, though.

One of the first things you need to know is that this cannot be found at a specific POI, but it is close to Slurpy Swamp. Let’s run through how you can get these insane guns in Fortnite Season 5.

Ruckus is holding both of the weapons in Fortnite Season 5.

Where to find Ruckus in Fortnite

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Drop from the Battle Bus near Slurpy Swamp.
  3. Head over to the small compound east of the location, which is right on the waterfront.
  4. Hunt down an NPC called Ruckus.
  5. Take him out and collect the loot, consisting of a Rocket Launcher and Mythic Heavy Assault Rifle.

Here’s where you need to go.

One of the easiest ways to take him down is to build a few structures nearby, and pop your head out to take shots.

Do have in mind that not only will the NPC have more health and a rocket launcher in-hand, but other enemies will also be racing to get the guaranteed loot.
