Tfue shocked after strange Fortnite camera angles lead to quick death

Fortnite superstar Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney was stunned after his Winter Royale 2019 duos tournament match came to a swift end due to the game’s wonky camera angles that didn’t let the streamer see much of the action.

Fortnite’s third-person camera has long been a point of contention with the community. Issues with editing and shooting have been linked to the game’s strange camera angles when a player finds themselves in the middle of a fast-paced battle.

While players have since learned to compensate for the POV with great success, they still run into instances where it seems like the game is working against them.

During a recent stream, Tfue was in the final stages of a Winter Royale match with less than 10 players remaining. Players know that this phase is where battles can quickly turn from long-range affairs to close-quarter action as the Storm closes in.

The Fortnite star was trying to defend against a player who was pressing from behind them. But things got weird since the streamer was perched between a wall build and the underside of a staircase.

“I have the worst camera angle bro,” Tfue said. “What is my screen. That’s actually so AIDS bro. You have no clue what I’m looking at.”

Since the enemy had a high-ground advantage with a relatively clear environment, they were able to land successive shots on the streamer.

Tfue, however, was working against the game’s camera since at one point half of his screen was filled with brown bricks of the staircase behind him.

The unfortunate positioning made it difficult to land meaningful shots on his opponent, especially since he was tussling between getting vision on the fight and lining up an angle on the player.

Tfue TwitchTfue had a difficult time lining up a shot since half his screen was obstructed for parts of the fight.

After the dust settled, Tfue and his duo got fourth place in that match, but it left some wondering if they could have etched out a better placing if not for the camera issues.

In either case, Fortnite’s camera work is decent for the most part but can cause frustration when the fights start to heat up.

Since a lot can happen in a short amount of time in Epic’s battle royale title, it would be interesting how the developers would approach a fix to this particular problem.

When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
