Turner ‘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.


Fortnite players demand broken “pay to lose” Baby Yoda back bling is fixed

Fortnite players have discovered a bug that’s rendering their Baby Yoda aka The Child back bling cosmetic useless, as it stops them from being able to aim properly.

Season 5 of Epic Games’ hit battle royale introduced a major crossover when The Mandalorian made his way onto The Island. As well as a skin, a glider, and Beskar armor, there’s also a Baby Yoda back bling for players to unlock.

Claiming the Baby Yoda back bling is no easy feat, as players need to reach Level 100 of their Battle Pass to be able to carry the adorable Grogu on their back. This means plenty of grinding and weekly challenges to earn that all-important XP.

Now that Fortnite Season 5 has been out for a while, players are slowly starting to unlock the Baby Yoda back bling, but many of them are facing disappointment upon learning that their hard-earned reward is broken.

Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling is broken

In a Fortnite subreddit thread which has gained over 10k upvotes, Reddit user SweggyBoi highlighted the issue at hand: When you have Baby Yoda equipped, you can’t see where you’re aiming at all as it blocks more than half of the screen.

The problem seems to occur when the player enters and exits a car, causing Baby Yoda to become static. This is likely because the back bling hovers behind the player, rather than resting directly against their back as capes and backpacks do

You can see the moment where Baby Yoda blocks the player’s screen in Fortnite below. SweggyBoi and a number of other Reddit users have called on Epic to acknowledge and fix the problem.

Of course, an easy fix for this problem would be to simply not use the Baby Yoda back bling. But when most players have spent real money on the Battle Pass and dedicated hours of gameplay to unlocking the cosmetic, their frustration is understandable.

“How the f**k did this pass playtests?” asked one Reddit user, while another added: “The view truly is awful with bulky skins and back blings. This one is super extreme though. Hope we just get some FOV settings finally so we can use more skins without having half the screen blocked.”

Others highlighted a different problem with Fortnite’s Baby Yoda back bling: “Because it sticks so far out from your back, when you’re hiding it either clips through the wall or shows around the corner.”

While the recent customizable superhero skin controversy resulted in players accusing Epic of supporting “pay to win” cosmetics, the Baby Yoda back bling is being jokingly referred to as “pay to lose” as it’s actually hindering players’ performance.

Hopefully, Epic Games will issue some sort of fix for this problem in the near future.
