Tfue explains why removing traps was Fortnite’s “worst” decision

Twitch star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has explained why he believes the removal of traps from Fortnite was the “worst thing” to ever happen in the history of the battle royale. 

Traps had been a part of Fortnite’s battle royale mode since its inception – giving players a way to embarrass their enemies while they were contesting a build battle.


After calls from plenty of players for changes, the damage traps were vaulted with the launch of Chapter 2, Season 2, to the delight of many players. Though, Tfue isn’t a fan of the move and believes it to be the “worst thing” that has ever happened to Fortnite.

Traps used to play a pivotal role in Fortnite.

During his March 19 stream, the streaming superstar had been taking part in the platform Cash Cup when he found himself heading back to the pre-game lobby after losing a box fight. With his frustrations growing, Tfue let loose. 


He called out: “Bro, the worst thing that Fortnite has ever done, ever bro, I’m talking about literally f**king planes, whatever the f**k there could be – the worst thing they’ve ever done to the game is removing traps.”

The streamer was finished there though, as he explained what Epic Games could have done instead of outright removing them. I don’t give a f**k if they nerf them down to 100 damage, it was the worst decision they’ve ever f**king done ever,” he added. “Personally, that’s what I feel, because f**king braindead motherf**kers kill me so god damn often now. It is ridiculous.”

After taking a few moments away from his stream, the Fortnite pro returned to see some viewers disagreeing with him, claiming that the removal of the traps was a good thing.


“Traps were terrible for the game? Why? They literally prevented dumb ass kids from jumping in your box,” Tfue responded. “It’s literally the meta nowadays, braindead people jump in boxes. It’s like the f**king meta or something. God, this game has gotten so f**king cringe, holy f**k. Oh, this game used to be much fun.”

Of course, some fans disagreed with Tfue endlessly and put forward items like the dreaded BRUTE Mechs and Infinity Sword as the worst additions. 

Though, those viewers probably won’t get him to change his point of view anytime soon, regardless of how hard they try.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.
