Tfue shares why he thinks building in Fortnite is currently “broken”

Fortnite’s latest season brought a lot of changes to its current slate of weapons which FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney thinks might have given certain building strategies an unfair advantage.

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 1×1 builds players are favoring instead of direct fights.

Epic GamesSince Fortnite took away various tools to get into builds, some players are coming up short of preventing players from hiding in their 1×1’s.

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 1×1, 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 1×1.

“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.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
