Tfue explains why Fortnite Chapter 2’s shotguns are completely “broken”

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has been playing Fortnite Chapter 2 since the new season kicked off on October 15 and has now identified one weapon that he will be refusing to pick up again in the future. 

Epic Games shuffled the pack in almost every way possible with the arrival of Chapter 2, Season 1, and with that major update came the arrival of not only a fresh map, but various new weaponry options as well.

While Tfue has been chiefly positive about the battle royale title following the arrival of these new features, he’s discovered that one gun just isn’t working for him.

Epic GamesFortnite Chapter 2 has seen the introduction of a new Pump Shotgun, but Tfue doesn’t seem convinced of its qualities.

The popular Twitch streamer took aim at one of the new shotguns during a broadcast, explaining why nobody should even be bothering with it. 

“I can’t use the Pump man. I can’t do it. It just doesn’t f**king ever hit over 70 damage. If I hit a perfect headshot, it doesn’t f**king hit,” he said, after being eliminated with the Pump Shotgun in-hand. 

Then, after continuing to try it out on stream, he landed another shot with the weapon and it only dealt 28 damage to his opponent’s shield, before he switched it out and eliminated them with an assault rifle.

“Never, ever in my f**king life am I picking it up again bro. I don’t care. I don’t care, I’ll use a grey f**king pistol over any f**king pump. I don’t care, I’m not using it anymore. It’s literally the worst f**king gun in the game,” he added. “It literally doesn’t work. Like, it’s not me, the gun is actually broken.”

While it might seem unlikely that the former FaZe Clan member will keep his promise and “never” pick one up ever again, the fact of the matter is, he just can’t seem to deal enough damage with it. 

The damage, depending on which rarity you have, for the Pump Shotgun in Fortnite is between 70 and 90 when striking the body, meaning that it’s not possible to eliminate a player in one shot with it – if they have a full health bar. 

Epic GamesThis new shotgun in Fortnite Chapter 2 replaces the old Pump – which was a fan-favorite.

The same can’t be said for its Epic and Legendary variants, though, which deal 100 and 110 damage respectively. 

Perhaps Tfue will just gamble on finding better rarity shotguns later in matches instead. We’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, though – he’s hardly impressed by this new addition. 


FaZe Clan announce top 20 finalists for FaZe5 & what’s coming next

The search for the next batch of FaZe 5 winners has dwindled down to just 20 finalists, who were unveiled by FaZe Clan on November 29 along with what’s happening next in the process.

Due to its rarity and prestige, FaZe5 always draws a lot of interest as it gives those aspiring to make a career out of gaming a chance to join the world’s biggest esports organization.

Tens of thousands of fans submitted tons of content during the competition’s open entry period, but only 100 survived the first cut when it was announced back on October 23.

Now, that list has been slashed again, down to just 20 – and all of the details for it can be found below:

FaZe 5 top-20 finalists

  • Proze – 22 years old
  • HunterTV – 20
  • Conrady – 20
  • Zenon – 9
  • Lough – 14
  • Zogoro – 22
  • Cannaestia – 35
  • K1ng – 14
  • Montoya Twinz – 20
  • Scope – 21
  • RowdyRogan – 6
  • Flea – 22
  • Faxuty – 22
  • NioRooch – 20
  • Virus – 22
  • Grant the Goat – 17
  • Milliam – 15
  • Stevie – 19
  • Cufboys – 22
  • Absorber – 17

How was the top-20 determined?

There are obviously a lot of factors that go into deciding who gets to move onto the next phase of FaZe5, including in-game skill, mastery of craft, ability to entertain, and wow-factor.

Following the top-100 announcement, those who advanced were given specific challenges to complete, including things like sending in something different than the original submission and making a ‘day in the life’ video.

They were also required to put forth an example of how they’d promote G FUEL, since all five winners will receive a sponsorship with the brand. That was followed by a collaborative challenge, one that paired up similar participants and required them to submit a single piece of content featuring them both in some way.

What’s next in FaZe 5?

Now that the top-20 has been announced, the next step is for them to complete another series of challenges in order to help the org decide who will be crowned a winner.

As things stand, there will not be another in-between cutoff from now until the winners get revealed, so whatever these 20 finalists get asked to do will hold a lot of weight in determining who survives the final stage.

Here’s a reminder of what’s on the line:

  • Nissan Kicks SUV (only for first-place)
  • $20,000 signing bonus
  • G FUEL endorsement contract for 3-6 months

FaZe have not yet announced when the five victors will be unveiled, but if they follow the previous FaZe5, there will be an individual video released for each winner – one per day until all five are made public.
