Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenny and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins are two of the biggest names in Fortnite around the world, and the FaZe Clan star got the better of Ninja thanks to an incredible play using a Spike Trap.
Tfue is widely recognized as one of the most talented Fortnite players in the world, regularly finishing at the top of competitive Fortnite tournaments, and even claimed victory at the Fortnite SFall Skirmish with FaZe Clan teammate Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore.
Meanwhile, Ninja is regarded as the face of Fortnite on Twitch, exploding to the top of the popular streaming platform thanks to the battle royale title, and has remained there ever since.
Fortnite fans are always excited to see two of the biggest stars in the game face off, and they got their wish when Tfue and Ninja went head-to-head in the final circle of a Gauntlet Test Event match on Tuesday, March 19.
With very few materials left to build with, and the circle closing around them, Tenney found himself in an extremely difficult situation, as the streamer had failed to pick up wood or metal from previous eliminations.
Building himself into a box,Tfue tried to protect himself while he figured out his next move. Ninja had other ideas, breaking down a wall and attempting to hunt down his opponent, who unbeknownst to him was actually the FaZe Clan star.
Unfortunately for Ninja, his aggression would inevitably his downfall, as Tfue quickly built a ramp to protect himself and then threw down two Spike Traps, knocking down Ninja before eventually eliminating him.
“I shouldn’t have went in on that,” acknowledged Ninja, as he realized his mistake.
Fortnite fans can expect to see Ninja continue to practise in this kind of setting, as he sets his sights on competing at the Fortnite World Cup which takes place in July.
With Tfue also likely to be in attendance at the event, it’s not beyond the realms of possibility that these two could relive this confrontation on Fortnite’s biggest stage.
