Tfue reveals emails to Epic Games about NFL skins, after Ninja’s confusion

FaZe Clan pro Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has cleared up confusion over NFL skins being added to his account, after fellow streamer Ninja mistakenly believed he must have asked for them.

The confusion occurred after Tfue discovered the new NFL skins had been added to his ‘Not_Tfue’ account on Fortnite.


He bought his first ever skin since having his first account suspended after reaching a 100,000 Retweet goal, and explained why in a Twitter video on November 7, showing that NFL skins had been added to his account.

Viewers in Ninja’s stream brought up Tfue’s rare skin purchase, he explained that he believed Epic must have asked for his permission, and Tfue must have agreed, to have the NFL skins added.


“I don’t think Epic would have added the NFL skins into to Tfue’s account without his permission. Epic very well knows that Tfue’s all about being a ‘hashtag no skin’. Epic is a very observant company”.

In another clip, Ninja continues “No, I promise they did not think they were doing [Tfue] a favor, Tfue doesn’t buy skins. There’s not a single person at Epic that though to themselves ‘hey, even though Tfue never buys skins, he’ll probably really like it if we give him skins early.'”

Tfue watched these moments from Ninja on stream, and in an effort to clear up any confusion fans may have, immediately opened up his email inbox.

He then put on screen the email he received from Epic Games, offering him the option to have the skins early and promote them.


Tfue also showed his response, which despite stating his excitement at the offer, made clear he would decline unless he was the only creator being given early access, or else it would spoil his ‘no skin’ theme, which has become part of his brand at this point.

In his response to Epic, Tfue writes:

“I assume that other creators are being offered the same thing. While that’s cool and all the default skin is a huge part of my brand. I don’t want to diminish it or budge off of it unless there’s potential for massive gain.”

So, it appears that despite his response, Epic Games decided to add the skins to his account anyway, which effectively mean his account was no longer skin free and thus he bought a skin.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
