Popular Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed that the casters at the World Cup cost him a kill in the very first match of the solos portion of the tournament.

Tfue entered Fortnite World Cup as one of the competition’s biggest names, and undoubtedly one of the favorites to finish high up the leaderboard and claim a major share of the $30 million prize pool.

Things didn’t work out that way for the 21-year-old though, who struggled throughout the six matches and finished in 67th place with just seven points. Still an admirable effort considering the skill-level of the matches though.

On his return to streaming on Tuesday, July 30, Tfue revealed that his points tally could have been higher, had the tournament’s casters not spoiled his position and loadout, and cost him a kill.

Tfue, TwitterTfue’s run at Fortnite World Cup didn’t work out as he had hoped.

During his broadcast, the American discussed how the casters affected his and others’ gameplay, as the headphones that were given to players weren’t able to block out the voices of Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo and Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop, who were commentating over the event.

“How the World Cup was set up, it was loud as fuck,” the Twitch streamer explained. “They have noise cancelling headphones but it’s so fucking loud that you can hear the announcers and shit.”

“I’m early game at The Block, and I’m getting kitted up, I land on the gold chest so I obviously have better loot. We both land at The Block, the announcers are blasting in the mic ‘Tfue at The Block with full shields, a SCAR [assault rifle], a shotgun,’ and all you see is the other kid hitting the wall and leave. He heard it.”

This incident took place in the very first match of the solos tournament, and in a clip taken from the official broadcast, it’s clear to see a player named Clipnode exit The Block just moments after Tfue’s position and loadout were mentioned on stream.

Of course, it’s possible that this was just a coincidence, and without Clipnode’s confirmation that he left because of the announcers’ call, the true reason for his exit cannot be confirmed.

Whether finding the kill against Clipnode at The Block would have made a significant difference to his eventual performance remains uncertain, but the sharp exit of his opponent clearly cost him a golden opportunity at finding an early kill in the competition.


Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
