Popular content creator Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney fired shots at some of his fellow Fortnite competitors who choose to follow where he lands in-game following his FNCS controversy.

Many of Fortnite’s streamers and personalities often find themselves as a target when loading into a game, as fellow players look to test their skills against the big-names for bragging rights.

Twitch star Tfue is among those who are frequently targeted during online games and after recently competing in the Fortnite Championship Series, his squad claimed that even some of their fellow pros were out to get them – which led to some heated arguments about the online event.

CloakzyTfue and Cloak’s team were furious when an opposing team dropped at their landing spot during FNCS.

The incident saw Tfue and Cloak’s squad drop out of the tournament early, finishing in 25th place on the day before blaming one another for the team’s failures despite being in a difficult situation.

Almost a week after their dramatic FNCS failure, Tfue decided to poke fun at some of his competitors after he was apparently told that they had only landed at Steamy Stacks after knowing that his popular squad would be there.

“That is true, Speedy even said that,” he confirmed before jokingly imitating his fellow pros. “Where does Tfue land? Oh, he lands cigarette dude, lets 50-50 him bro, lets double up.”

Tfue’s longtime duo Cloakzy had also mocked his fellow competitors after their usual landing spot of Steamy Stacks attracted more players during the FNCS event, suggesting that those who followed them did not care about trying to win the game.

Cloak claimed that both of the teams had targeted the server’s most popular streamers had little to lose anyway because they were apparently in “last place” before defeating his squad in-game.

Fortnite star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins also weighed in on the controversy claiming that he would not be able to get away with talking to his teammates in the same fashion that Tfue did during their FNCS meltdown.

Unfortunately for Tfue, there is not a lot he can do to counter players who choose to land at his usual landing spots without giving up an early loot advantage as it is not against the rules – despite being considered unfair by many viewers. It is every man for himself, after all.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
