Tfue reveals which two guns need to be vaulted for Fortnite to be “so much better”

Twitch superstar Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney believes that Fortnite Battle Royale could become a much more fun game to play again if two specific weapons were sent to the Vault.

While Fortnite is the most popular battle royale game that’s ever existed, it definitely features some polarizing aspects that create divides of opinion among the player-base.


The constant addition, adjustment, and removal of weapons, items, vehicles, and game mechanics isn’t always met with universal agreement and praise, and some long-time players often say that the game isn’t as fun as it used to be.

One such player is Tfue, who claims that the current pool of weapons is not in its best shape, to say the least, and has called for two specific guns to be removed from the game.


“I really think this game would be so much better if they removed the Combat and Drum Shotgun,” he said on stream. 

Epic GamesThe addition of the powerful Combat Shotgun in Season 9 has shaken up the meta in Fortnite.

Both the Combat and Drum Shotguns are Season 9 additions in Fortnite, and with the Pump now back in the fold, there are a total of four shotguns available in the core default modes. 

Tfue’s main gripe with the two new guns is that their addition has created an imbalance in the availability of shotguns, causing them to be a lot more difficult to find on the map.


“It seems like all the good weapons are so f*cking rare,” he said. “When I first started playing Fortnite, literally there were gray Pumps f*cking everywhere. That sh*t was actually so lit. Now there’s gray dog turds that you can try and throw at people.”

It’s clear that the superstar streamer would love to see the game go back to what he feels was a much better time – when Pumps were part of the meta and were readily available all over the map. 

Having four different shotguns in the core default modes does seem like a tad bit too high, especially considering Epic’s previous stances on having too many similar guns in the game.


One pro player has tried to make some sense of it by offering a bizarre conspiracy theory for why unpopular weapons don’t get vaulted, although no one will ever really know if it’s true.

At the end of the day, if history has taught us anything, it’s that Epic do as Epic please, and not even a community icon like Tfue can sway them in one direction or another.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.
