Tfue encounters weird sniper glitch in Fortnite livestream

Top streamer and professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has encountered a potentially game-ruining sniper glitch while competing in Fortnite’s solo Cash Cup on November 21.

Tfue is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch and has been for a while, especially since the departures of Tyler ‘Ninja‘ and Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek to Mixer. That means that whenever he notices an issue in Fortnite, it’s immediately broadcast to tens of thousands of viewers.

That’s exactly what happened while he was streaming the solo Cash Cup tournaments. For those who aren’t aware, these are small online tournaments that allow the best players to compete against each other with money on the line.

Epic GamesFortnite Chapter 2 released in October 2019, with Season 1 extended to February 2020.

While Tfue was streaming the tournament, he was attempting to take down one enemy he had found looting around the sea in the north-east corner of the map when he got shot from a different player.

The opposing player had peeked Tfue to his right, so he pulled out a sniper and lined up a shot on the former FaZe Clan member, appearing to have a perfect shot.

Instead, you see the bullet as good as bounce off of Tfue’s head, with clear signs of impact – but absolutely no damage done to the streamer. Tfue immediately pointed it out, saying: “I just got sniped and it didn’t register.”

Obviously, Tfue chased down and eliminated the one that had shot him, a somewhat unfair fate for a player who should have got the elimination on the Fortnite star.

This is definitely an issue that requires some explanation from developer Epic Games, or someone that knows what they’re talking about. In a general public match, this would be a nuisance, but in a tournament with cash on the line, this could be the difference between making money and leaving empty-handed.

The shot didn’t change Tfue’s luck throughout the rest of the tournament, as he failed to finish even inside the top 300 players by the end of the event.


Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
