Tfue claps back at Ninja over Fortnite’s “broken” harpoons

Streaming star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney hit back at Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ claim that the harpoons in Fortnite weren’t actually glitched, by showing off a video of how bad they’d become. 

Before either of them became huge stars thanks to Fortnite, Tfue and Ninja took each other on in other titles like H1Z1, but it was the uber-popular Epic Games title that really made them butt heads.

They’ve clashed on a number of occasions, both in and out of the game, with each of them trying to get one over on the other. With the new V12.20 update for Fortnite being released, the harpoon guns that many players use for looting have started acting a little strange – giving the pair even more ammunition to argue over.

Twitter: Tfue
Tfue and Ninja were quite good friends once upon a time.

After FaZe Thiefs asked if Epic could drop a fix for the harpoons, Ninja quickly jumped to the defense of the developers, claiming that what players were experiencing wasn’t a “glitch” and that a change had been made.

However, Tfue responded, tweeting a screenshot of Ninja’s tweet with the caption: ”Nah it’s definitely broken homie,” as well as a 90-second long video showcasing the problem.

Any time the Twitch star attempted to quickly fish in the water, his harpoon wouldn’t even make a splash – preventing him from picking up any fish or loot that lay under the waves. “This game f**king sucks,” he called out after getting frustrated with what was happening. “I f**king hate this game dude.”

With Epic Games no longer dropping patch notes for their updates, and fans having to rely on their official Trello board for bug fixes, it is impossible for players to know when something is an intentional change or a mistake.

Whether or not Epic Games will say something about the problem remains to be seen, but, we’ll also have to wait and see if Ninja fires back a response at Tfue’s tweet.


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.
