Tfue’s insane Boogie Bomb play derailed by infamous Fortnite glitch

A long-standing bug in Fortnite on April 11 robbed Twitch streamer Tanner ‘Tfue’ of an incredible play in one of the final circles.

Epic Games released Fortnite’s v8.30 update on April 10 that added tons of new features to the battle royale, although some wonders why they didn’t just focus on resolving known problems.

During an intense late-game circle situation, Tfue was enclosed in a small zone with 28 other players when he found an opportune moment to strike at a wave of incoming enemies.

Epic GamesThe Pump Shotgun has been a major source for bugs throughout the game’s history.

Perfect plan meets bothersome bug

The Fortnite veteran used the controversial Baller as a means of getting closer to the action, but was stunned when he executed his plan to perfection only to be met with a bugged out shotgun.

“Bang, bang bang,” Tfue said as his shots were missing from the server. “Wish I could fucking shoot. Great timing.”

It seems like Tfue was the victim of yet another instance of shots going missing or unregistered, as one can see by the point blank targets coming out unscathed against his Pump Shotgun.

Fortnite’s long history with Ghost Shots

“His pump did shoot but it didn’t register on server side,” Redditor ‘namansha’ said. “It’s a ghost shot and it would have been visible if they didn’t implement server side shot detection. It looks even more annoying than before.”

Other users were baffled at how bugs like these could have such a long lifespan in a game as popular as Fortnite.

“The fact that bugs are being left in for so long blows my mind,” Reddit user Kezha said. “It’s normal for bugs to be a thing, but having game breaking bugs be left in for more than 1-2 updates (when updates are weekly) is just mind blowing. And on top of that having a hoard of [annoying] bugs taking 3 years to fix, is also baffling.”

Epic GamesA bug like this could appear at a terrible time, especially in a tournament with big money on the line.

This particular instance was an eye-opening example of the bug, but some are unconvinced and think Tfue just missed his shots.

“[Tfue] means ‘wish I could shoot,’” Redditor ‘imawfullyaverage’ said. “As in ‘wish I was good at aiming,’ at least that’s how I interpreted it. He’s clearly missing both shots here.”

Regardless, phantom shots have been plaguing the game for a long time, and fans of Epic Game’s shooter are eagerly awaiting a permanent fix.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
