Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and his teammates scoped and innocents, have hit out at Epic Games over the ‘unplayable’ state of Fortnite Season 3, as players continue to struggle with servers and in-game lag. 

Tfue is one Fortnite player who has transcended the building battle royale. Now one of the biggest names in the entire gaming community, he can be found playing other games like Warzone and Hyper Scape.

Regardless, he still competes in Fortnite’s trio tournaments, now alongside innocents and scoped. The trio were playing together on July 16, when they decided to go on the offensive against a team in Catty Corner.

Tfue is one of the biggest names in the gaming world.

However, their attack was halted by some very intrusive packet loss and lag, causing all the players to vocalize their frustrations with Epic.

“Like how is this f**king game playable dude?” Tfue’s teammates ask. “The servers are so awful dude. This is making me want to f**king quit, dude. Fix your f**king game [Creative Director at Epic Games] Donald Mustard what the f**k am I playing?”

Tfue, for his part, commented that he’s “going to sh*t out his eyes, in-game. I can’t f**king move! Bro I’m about to get another f**king watermelon, dude, it’s so bad!” We’re not quite sure what that means, but it doesn’t sound overly complimentary.

Despite Fortnite rapidly approaching three years old, many prominent players have commented that the general server stability has got worse in Season 3. These issues have reared their heads in competitive Fortnite, with many players reporting significant lag in tournament matches.

The lag frustrations are probably a motivating factor for Tfue heading over to other titles. Recent streams have seen him in Verdansk, racking up some big kill wins on Call of Duty’s sophomore battle royale.

As far as Epic Games are concerned, they have not commented on the latency/connection issues, at least not publicly. For the latest from the developers, you can follow @FortniteStatus on Twitter.

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
