Streaming stars Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney have spoken out against Fortnite pros and the professional scene after players were banned for allegedly cheating in a tournament.

Once upon a time, Ninja and Tfue were the pinnacles of competitive Fortnite – they were the players everyone aspired to be like, but slowly gave way to a new generation of talent as time went on, despite still being top players.

After players Nate ‘Kreo’ Kou, Logan ‘Bucke’ Eschenburg, ‘Keys’, and ‘Slackes’ were given 60-day bans for collusion in a Fortnite Championship Series event, much of the community provided their opinion on the matter – and now Ninja and Tfue have weighed in on the controversy

The FNCS event brings together some of the greatest Fortnite players in each region – but this tournament was marred with controversy.

The ban was handed to the aforementioned players within just a few hours of the incident happening after viewers started to question whether they were teaming, and Ninja has explained why he thinks this happens in the Fortnite pro scene – as well as making a dig at Epic Games’ inconsistent punishments.

“This competitive scene is purely run by kids,” he said. “And then Epic’s like, ‘here’s a Fortnite tournament.’”

He went on to mention how “disappointed” he is in the players who have been banned, as well as commending players such as Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson and Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, who he says don’t need to cheat because they’re “too talented.”

Ninja also spoke out about the inconsistency in bans, referencing FaZe Clan’s Jarvis ‘Jarvis’ Kaye. “Jarvis cheats in an online, regular game for no money and gets a full-time ban. Players get caught cheating in a tournament for money and they get banned for 60 days. Alright, go,” he said.

Meanwhile, Tfue slammed people who think 60 days is too long, saying that would maybe be the case if they cheated in just one match – but the ban is perfectly reasonable considering it was across 9 games.

He also said that 60 days would be alright if they did it only two or three times, implying that he believes the ban should be even greater than was given.

The other notable cheating scandal in Fortnite was that of Xxif and Ronaldo, who faced 2-week suspensions prior to the 2019 Fortnite World Cup for collusion in qualifiers, with many people ardently against the seemingly-lenient bans considering the magnitude of the event.

Ninja and Tfue don’t always see eye to eye on certain things, but it seems they’re both on the same side when it comes to this cheating scandal, even believing that the punishment could have been much worse on the players.

How to unlock Terminator T-800 and Sarah Connor skins in Fortnite

The Fortnite Season 5 crossovers keep on coming. It’s been one hell of a ride so far, and it’s continuing with two iconic Terminator characters, T-800 and Sarah Connor, launching off the Battle Bus. Here’s how you can pick them up.

When will the crossovers end in Fortnite? Well, at this rate, maybe not even when Season 5 does.

Epic has really turned up the ante by working with a bunch of different franchises and dropping them on the island. From God of War to Star Wars to The Walking Dead, if you can think of a pop-culture franchise, it’s probably in Fortnite.

Now, Terminator can add itself to that list. You can now drop out of the Battle Bus as either T-800 or Sarah Connor. You can even live the movies out yourself, trying to chase Connor as a T-800, or save Earth.

Terminator T-800 and Sarah Connor Fornite skins cost

There’s nothing special you have to do to get the Fortnite x Terminator crossover skins. All you need is a little bit of cash to splash.

You can pick up each of the skins individually for 1,800 (Sarah Connor) or 1,500 (T-800) V-Bucks respectively in the Item Shop. However, if you want the whole bundle, it’ll set you back 2,800 ⁠— but it comes with some great savings if you do so!

  • Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
  • Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
  • T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
  • Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks

You will also get the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink backblings, as well as the Combat Knife pickaxe if you buy the Future War Bundle, so it’s definitely the best value for money out of the bunch.

It’s unclear when the crossover skins will depart the Item Shop, so get in quick. They may never “be back.”
