Tfue roasts controller players and servers with mock Fortnite advice

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney took some amusing shots at the game’s servers and controller aim assist after being asked for a few tips from a hopeful player.

While it is still one of the top multiplayer games in the world, and certainly the most popular battle royale title, Fortnite hasn’t been without its issues – especially when it comes to trying to turn your casual play into a professional career.

In recent weeks players have voiced their concerns with new freezing issues, and have also taken shots at the aim assist given to competitors who use a controller instead of keyboard and mouse. Some have shown off just how ridiculous it is – comparing it to an aimbot – while others, like Tfue, have mocked just how easy they believe it is to use a controller

Tfue was one of the early standouts in the competitive Fortnite scene but failed to make his mark at the World Cup.

So, when one fan decided to donate $20 and ask for some tips on how to improve their Fortnite skill, you could easily guess that the popular streamer was going to take some shots at the game’s issues.

“Well, if you don’t have low ping you better move. If you’re on mouse and keyboard, you better switch to a controller and then you just practice,” said Tfue, much to the enjoyment of his viewers who burst out into laughter spam.

“If you’re not on linear jumping into people’s boxes then switch to legacy, those are some big tips I can give for you,” he noted, adding some further ‘much-needed’ tips. “If you’re not under the age of 18 then, you know, drink a lot of caffeine and shoot stem cells into your eyes because that’s the only way you’re going to keep up. Other than that, I don’t know.”

While plenty of fans could have quickly seen how Tfue was joking, the debate about the game’s problems – especially controller versus keyboard and mouse, and the state of the servers – is still going to rumble on.

Whether or not Epic has plans to address these by, say, separating controller and KB/M players in future events, remains to be seen, but they may have to make a change to appease the current crop of players.

Fortnite’s Galactus Nexus War finale event is finally over and it was packed full of a ton of Marvel-themed content. Here’s what went down during the insanely hyped event that closed off Season 4 of the popular game.

For a while now, Epic Games, Marvel, and the Fortnite community have been hyping up a brand new event to close out Chapter 2, Season 4 of Fortnite. Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds, had been slowly inching his way towards the island all season and on December 1, 2020, he finally arrived.

But what happened once he finally showed up to the Fortnite island? Did players have to fight him like we originally thought? Here’s what you need to know about what went down during the Nexus War finale event in case you missed it.

Fortnite Galactus Nexus War finale event recap

Epic Games/Marvel
Galactus wasted no time in destroying the Helicarrier at the start of the event.

All in all, the event itself was pretty short, clocking in at a little over 10 minutes when all was said and done. Still, there was a ton that happened during that span.

Once the in-game timer reached zero, the giant Galactus made his final push to the island. After declaring that he hungered, he destroyed the Helicarrier starting location with ease, sending you and all the other players flying across the sky.

Fortunately, Iron Man-himself flew in as you got close to hitting the ground, handing you a jetpack and telling you that it’s time to stop Galactus. Before you had a chance to do anything, however, the massive villain started consuming Zero Point, which started a “full reality collapse”.

After being transported by Iron Man, you reappeared, in first-person, inside of a Battle Bus decked out in weaponry and explosives. From that point on, your goal was to fly the Buses into Galactus and have him consume them, which ultimately sent him back to “where he came from.”

Epic Games/Marvel
In order to defeat Galactus, players had to drive Battle Buses decked out in weaponry and explosives towards the villain so that he would consume it.

A few Marvel characters even made small appearances, including Thor himself (who was one of the main characters this season) and even Wolverine, who helped you in the fight against Galactus.

After finally destroying a plethora of drones and getting close enough, Galactus got sent back to where he came from, you were teleported away to safety, and the event ended.

Epic Games/Marvel
Players were joined by both Thor and Wolverine during the event, who helped in taking down Galactus.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Marvel if there wasn’t a “post-credits scene.” After the event was over and Galactus got taken care of, players got a shot of Jonesy in his office, who wakes up suddenly before the screen says that the story is to be continued in Season 5.

Re-watch the entire Fortnite Galactus event

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to catch a re-run of the event inside of Fortnite itself, it seems like that’s not going to be possible. Epic Games has confirmed that it was a “one-time-only” event so if you missed out, you won’t be able to experience it again in-game.

However, we did record the entire experience, so can rewatch it as many times as you want:

What’s next?

Now that the Galactus event is over, Epic Games have confirmed that the Season 5 update will be released at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, with the downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans will get to see what the devs have in store for them to enjoy!
