Tfue left speechless after bizarre Fortnite bug steals kill

Popular Fortnite streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney could hardly believe what he was seeing when another player landed near him in Risky Reels and exhibited some exceedingly strange behavior.

Sometimes, when something really fishy happens in-game, you need to take a second to try and digest what you just saw. Even then, the time you spend reflecting might just raise more questions rather than provide any answers.

Tfue, who has amassed millions of followers on Twitch and is regarded as one of the best Fortnite players on the planet, was subject to one such bemusing incident, leaving him and his tens of thousands of viewers lost for words.

During a December 6 stream, Tfue was playing a solo game of Fortnite when another player came parasailing in over the horizon, heading toward the cars parked in front of the Risky Reels movie screen. But as Turner lined up his reticle, the shots somehow didn’t connect.

“He’s lagging bro!” Tfue exclaimed. “What the f**k is that?” he asked aloud as the player disappeared momentarily from the pro’s sight before making their landing.

But, as the streamer constructed a ramp to get a better vantage point, he saw something even more bizarre.

Four copies of the player he tried to shoot, standing motionless on bales of hay in front of the big screen. Tfue took shots at all of them with no damage registering despite clearly hitting them, and one-by-one, the invincible copies disappeared, leaving the Fortnite pro with zero kills from the ordeal – but lots of questions.

Tfue’s mild confusion had turned into full-blown shock, as he sat silently with his mouth agape for a few seconds trying to comprehend what he just saw.

With no answers materializing, he briefly collected himself and moved on, as one can only do when you’ve still got a game to win.

Weird bugs and glitches are by no means uncommon, with casual and pro players discovering new and unique ones seemingly all the time. Epic Games are typically graded for how quickly they can identify, address, and resolve issues as they appear.

This isn’t even the first time in recent memory a weird bug like this has happened to Tfue, who benefitted from a shot not registering properly just a week prior to this occasion.

To Tfue and to anyone else who’s watched this strange moment, there are still lots of questions to be answered, particularly whether this was a bug or a glitch or a failed attempt at hacking. We’ll see whether it gets addressed or not when big changes come to Fortnite Chapter 2.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
