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.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
