FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has revealed his theory as to why so many Fortnite Battle Royale players and streamers are currently playing Apex Legends.

Regardless of what you may think of the game, there is no denying that Apex Legends has burst onto the online gaming scene and instantly become the talk of the town.

Apex Legends’ viewership numbers have smashed Fortnite’s in the seven days since its release, largely due to the fact that so many of the world’s biggest Twitch streamers have been playing the game nonstop. 

According to Tfue, one of the main reasons for why this is happening boils down to stream-snipers, and how streamers who play Apex Legends instead of Fortnite don’t have to deal with the frustration of having to deal with stream-snipers. 


“That’s why a lot of the streamers switched to fucking Apex, just because of the stream-snipers,” he said. “I mean that’s the only reason I would play Apex. Just because of the large population, you can avoid stream-snipers.”

Stream-sniping has been one of the biggest issues in Fortnite for quite a while now, despite the fact that Epic Games added and then expanded a feature that is supposed to prevent it.

Tfue has been one of the biggest victims of stream-snipers, and as he explains in the video above, he is almost never able to play the game normally because of the constant threat of players trying to ruin his gaming experience.


While some were suggesting methods that Tfue can use to help himself avoid stream-snipers, he pretty much made it clear that he’d rather not stream the game than have to go that far out of his way.

Unfortunately for Tfue, his superstar status in Fortnite has made him a prime target of stream-snipers.

Similarly, Team Liquid Fortnite star POACH has also expressed his own frustrations about stream-sniping in Fortnite, and funnily enough, a good amount of the comments to his tweet were suggestions that he should play Apex Legends instead. 


With the issues in Fortnite continuing to pile up, and Apex Legends offering such a refreshing alternative, it may not be the biggest shock to see more and more Fortnite superstars start streaming Apex a lot more regularly.


Even Tfue has left the door open to him trying his hand at the new battle royale, which we all know he’ll probably excel at. 

What do you think this means for the future of Fortnite streamers, especially if the issue of stream-sniping isn’t resolved? Tweet us @Dexerto to let us know your thoughts!
