FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed why he will “pick up a Green Pump over a Gold Double Barrel almost every time” in competitive Fortnite.

The professional player states “the Double Barrel, if you shoot your two bullets… that better be a fucking kill. Because if it’s not, you’re screwed, you’re gonna have to give up high ground”.

He expands on this point by saying that, if you run into a good player, “you only have so little opportunities to pop shots in when people are trying to build”.

Tfue goes on to say:

“say you take high ground from somebody and they start going another way, okay? You’re like ‘okay I’m starting to build high ground’ and then you pop ‘em like twice… and then what, bro?

“They’re starting to build high ground again, you try to pup ‘em but you’ve gotta reload. You can’t reload and build at the same time so you’re screwed dude.”

The Double Barrel Shotgun was added to Fortnite Battle Royale as part of the V5.20 patch on August 7 and is intended to be incredibly powerful up close but have limited ammunition and viable range.

Initial feedback on the weapon, which is available in Epic and Legendary variants, was rather mixed, but it looks like most top players are leaning towards Tfue’s way of thinking, preferring the Pump or Tactical Shotguns over the Double Barrel.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, has been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened in those 10 minutes.

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending all the players standing on it flying across the sky.

Epic Games/Marvel
After Galactus destroys the Helicarrier, Iron Man shows up to save the day.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flies in as you’re close to hitting the ground. He then hands the player a jetpack and tells you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you have a chance to do anything, however, he starts consuming Zero Point, which starts a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappear, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal is to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which will send him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even make small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who help you in the fight against Galactus. After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus is sent back to where he came from, you’re teleported away to safety, and the event ends.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event is over and Galactus is taken care of, players get a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time only” event so if you missed, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

That being said, many players ended up recording the event itself, meaning you can rewatch it as many times as you want on YouTube and other platforms. Or you can just click the embedded link below and see it for yourself.

All in all, while the event was short, it was an interesting introduction into whatever Season 5 is going to be. Only will tell what Epic Games has in-store for the future.
