Tfue frustrated after Fortnite gliding bug ruins his game

Popular Fortnite professional Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was left pretty confused when a strange stuttering bug denied him and his teammate a safe landing, leading to an early elimination.

Having success in a game of Fortnite comes down to being able to outgun and outbuild your opponent, while also having some luck on your side when it comes to looting an area for equipment.

In games between pro players, they have their own routine when it comes to jumping out the battle bus – as they head to a regular landing spot and follow their set out ‘loot path’ that should give them a chance at winning. Though, sometimes, the game intervenes and throws in a curveball at them, leading to a more difficult start than normal.

Twitch: Tfue
Tfue is one of Fortnite’s most popular players, dominating the Twitch charts with his follower numbers.

That was the case for Tfue and his teammate Scoped during their February 10 round of matches, as the battle royale title decided that the most opportune time for a bug to rear its head would be during the landing phase.

As Tfue was gliding towards his regular spot of the cigarette-looking smoke stack in Steamy Stacks, his game quickly stuttered and sent him off course. “My game just bugged out, I can’t land there with you,” he called out as Scoped became engaged in a fight. 

Unfortunately for the streamer, his teammate lost that fight, was knocked down, and needed a revive. “Bro, what the f**k was that bug?” Tfue called out. “Like, you literally just died because my game f**ked up, literally.”

The strange bug isn’t the only one that has affected players in recent days, with many reporting that the recently unvaulted launch pads just don’t work at all from time to time. 

It remains to be seen if Epic Games are aware of the issue and plan to have it fixed in the time for the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 on Thursday, February 20. Fans, though, will be hoping these problems are resolved shortly.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
