Fortnite esports took another black eye following Week 2 of the Summer Skirmish after accusations of cheating towards the winner and a glitchy elimination involving a star player.

FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was playing in the $500,000 tournament when he was eliminated of mysterious causes.

Tfue was driving in an ATK when his health and shields started depleting for no known reason. He stepped out of the kart and was eliminated.

His health depleted as if he was being shot, though the shots were not registering on his screen and there were no indications he was in a firefight.

The elimination could have been a result of the attacking player, or Tfue, suffering lag on a public server.

The health depletion also could have been a bug in Fortnite, one that causes the action to freeze around players driving an ATK.

Tfue had three kills at the time of his elimination with 21 players remaining.

He would go on to finish in 15th place overall with 136 points, 48 behind the eventual winner iDropz_Bodies, but only 13 points out of the top three.

This is not the first time Fortnite esports has seen a glitch during a high profile competition, NickEh30 suffered an unfortunate incident with the ATK as well.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
