Tfue explains why Fortnite could force him to leave Florida

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed that he could be set to move homes once again all in aid of his Fortnite career. 

When competitive Fortnite was in its infancy, Tfue and his partner Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore dominated some of the early tournaments – racking up wins and prize money that their rivals were unable to come close to.

However, the pair, who have since gone their separate ways, have never really been able to recapture that early glory. Tfue qualified for the Fortnite World Cup but only finished in 67th. He’s had success in a few online events since then but has given way to a batch of up and coming stars – with complaints coming in about being hampered by ping.

Tfue and Cloak dominated some of the early Fortnite tournaments.

In order to combat the ping issues, Tfue revealed that he has considered moving up the east coast from Florida to Virginia in order to put himself closer to the Epic Games servers – thus getting better ping.

“I was looking at, I forget where, kind of like outside of DC in between DC and where the servers at,” Tfue said during his March 22 stream. “In between like Ashburn and DC. Dude, they actually have crazy f**king nice houses.”

It wasn’t a throwaway comment from Tfue though as the Fortnite star continued on with his thought of moving. “You’ve just got to live where there is low ass ping,” he added, before noting that if he got a “zero ping house” Epic might make a change and implement a cap. 

The streaming star also added that his current ping is “not acceptable,” and shows up at 45 in the game’s settings – with that number drawing an “eww” from Team Liquid’s Chap.

Whether or not Tfue makes the move remains to be seen, though he has done it before, previously moving in with Cloak for some low ping.

It might help him re-climb the Fortnite competitive mountain, but will it help him reclaim his throne? Only time will tell.

The Storm Scout sniper is one of the most sought-after Exotic weapons in Fortnite right now. While the weapon’s been in the game for a while in certain forms, players can now get the rifle with Mave. Here’s how you can find the weapon and the NPC as of February 24.

It’s safe to say that the the Storm Scout is one of the most powerful weapons in Fortnite right now. While the actual damage that it outputs is impressive, it also shows exactly where the storm/circle will form in the future, giving a pretty notable advantage to those who use it.

While the weapon has been available in a variety of ways over the past couple years since it’s inclusion, Epic has now thrown players for a loop by changing up where it’s available.

The Storm Scout sniper can now be found with Mave after the latest update from Epic Games.

While the Storm Scout sniper was previously available via the Lexa NPC near Hunter’s Haven, this is no longer the case. Instead, players will now have to travel a little bit further east if they want to pick up the powerful weapon.

As of February 24, the Storm Scout sniper rifle is available via Mave, just east of Catty Corner. Funny enough, she’s is located almost in the same place as Cole, who once sold the Hop Rock Dualies, so if you know where he is, you’ll be able to find Mave with ease.

If you’re still confused about what to do, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you out:

  1. Land in the island and go to the location seen in the image above (it’s the cliffside southeast of Catty Corner, overlooking the ocean).
  2. Go up to Mave, who will be looking at a shine-like object on the cliffside.
  3. Interact with Mave and tab over to the Storm Scout sniper.
  4. Purchase the sniper.
  5. The weapon will automatically show up in your inventory after the leave the menu.
Epic Games
The Storm Scout sniper costs 500 gold from Mave.

Like most Exotic weapon being sold at NPCs, the Storm Scout sniper rifle will cost players 500 Gold, so if you want the ability to get the weapon, you’ll need to save up a bit.

And that’s it! After you complete the above tasks you’ll have a Storm Scout sniper at your disposal. Of course, given the fact that we’re so close to the launch of Season 6, there’s always a chance that the location will change again in a few weeks.

We’ll keep this article updated for any further developments or changes regarding the sniper’s location should they arise. Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto.
