After extensive changes to explosives, Rocket Launchers, mat placements, and more, some of the game’s defensive strategies are stifling the action typically seen in a game.
During a recent livestream on Twitch, Tfue expressed some frustrations over the game’s lack of options to deal with the consistent 1x1 builds players are favoring instead of direct fights.
In fact, he believes that the problem might have reached a point to where the strategy has heavily skewed the meta.
“I think this game has a serious issue with its metas right now,” Tfue said. “Sitting in a box is honestly broken. When someone’s sitting in a 1x1, there’s only so much shit you can do.”

The FaZe pro feels that Epic Games took away too many tools that used to prevent players from simply falling back and boxing themselves in. Tfue was lost for words for what to do in a game where there’s little leeway to maneuver once someone retreats to a 1x1.
“I think [Epic Games] taking out all the fucking [explosives] and all the fucking deagles and shit… I don’t know, the only fucking counters they had to people sitting in boxes, they took them out. So I don’t know,” Tfue said.
Epic Games routinely mixes up their battle royal to keep the action fresh, and it seems that at least Tfue would welcome a change of pace to how things are at the moment.
