SypherPK lashes out at Fortnite stream snipers for ruining YouTube videos

Popular Fortnite streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has hit out at stream snipers ruining his Fortnite gameplay videos, describing them as “degenerate losers”. 

When it comes to Fortnite, there are very few top tier streamers who continue to play Epic’s building battle royale exclusively. Tfue and CouRage have started streaming Warzone frequently, while Ninja has been spending increasing amounts of time on Valorant.

Sypher, one of the few remaining stalwarts of Fortnite, shocked his followers when, on July 25, he said he’d be investing more time in the aforementioned Warzone.

His reasoning for the switch was that content would be “minimal”, but he confirmed he would continue to grind Fortnite to acquire daily gameplays for his YouTube.

Sypher’s switch to Warzone came as a shock to his fans.

While playing Fortnite on stream to get these YouTube gameplays, Sypher encountered multiple stream snipers in one game, which he eventually went on to win.

However, it seems that the snipers struck a chord with the Fortnite pro because, once the game had been won, he hit out at the players in question, referring to them as “degenerate losers,” as he issued a stern response.

“Every little punk kid who tried to stream snipe me that game to ruin my video,” he said. “You are the most degenerate loser – all of you combined. The skill level, not even close to me. I destroyed you – manhandled every single one of you.”

He continued: “Whether I was at a health disadvantage, or a weapon disadvantage, or a material disadvantage, I destroyed every single one of you, and you will never be as good as me you little dirty stream snipers!”

Sypher then began to channel the frustration into fuel, hyping himself up as he began to search for another lobby. While he did not cite stream snipers as a reason for his move towards Warzone, it certainly seems that they are able to get under his skin.

Warzone, of course, has its own issues – namely hacking. Whether Sypher sticks with Fortnite off the back of the anger it caused him remains to be seen, but you can catch him on his Twitch channel regardless of what game he’s streaming.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
