Tfue enraged after he’s destroyed by “literal aimbot” hacker in Fortnite

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was left stunned after an apparent hacker managed to ruin his game despite not even appearing on the screen. 

Unless they take precautions in blocking their screen, popular streamers and players usually have to deal with stream snipers trying to grab their moment of fame by appearing on the stream. 

Some of these stream snipers can lead to pretty funny interactions, giving the streamer and their fans a hilarious highlight to look back upon, but sometimes, they’ll run into cheaters who do the opposite and make things a complete nightmare.

Tfue has been one of Fortnite’s most successful players but even he struggles against cheaters.

That happened to Tfue during his February 24 stream, as he attempted to play a few solo Fortnite matches. During one game, he had been making his way towards the circle in a boat when he came under fire and lost all of his shield and 90 health. 

“Oh my f**king god, literal f**king aimbot. What the actual f**k?” Tenney called out as he quickly built a structure so he could protect himself and heal back up. 

However, he quickly came under pressure as the apparent cheater pushed right up on his building and started trying to outplay Tfue as the professional attempted to take the high ground and build space between them. 

His attempts to create space didn’t work as planned, though. The player in question got inside Tfue’s box and eliminated him from the game. 

“How is that even f**king remotely ok. Like, that was straight-up f**king aimbot dude,” the streamer called out before exiting back to the lobby and getting ready for another game. 

Of course, cheating in Fortnite has been a problem for some time and while Epic Games have attempted to stamp it out, it is difficult to catch everybody – especially if their username doesn’t show up and you don’t report them. 

Whether or not the battle royale developers have to address a new issue that might have snuck under their anti-cheat detection remains to be seen though.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
