Tfue left speechless after rare Fortnite bug denies Victory Royale

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney was left stunned by an unusual bug that caused him to fall to his death even though he had seemingly lined up his fall perfectly.

While he may not have succeeded at the Fortnite World Cup, Tfue is still the most recognizable name in the game and he even looks set to become the face of Twitch itself. That World Cup setback hasn’t stopped him for playing the battle royale, rather, it’s seemingly pushed him to play even more.

He has had a few issues with Fortnite Season 10, however, threatening to uninstall the game and launching a  tirade at Epic Games over the BRUTE Mech suits. Yet, for now at least, he’s still playing Fortnite – that is, however, subject to change, especially if he sticks around after running into a rather strange bug.

Tfue TwitchTfue has never been one to shy away from his criticism of Epic Games.

During his August 5 stream, Tfue had been playing alongside his longtime duo partner Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore and 100 Thieves’ Davis ‘Ceice McClellan when they became engaged in a frantic late-game battle in a moving circle.

As they usually do, Tfue and Cloak sought out to take the high-ground – giving themselves an advantage over their opponents. However, things didn’t go to plan. Tenney altered the construction of his floor to give him the perfect drop point onto a bounce pad.

Yet, as he dropped down, the brick floor quickly changed and knocked him off course. He could only offer up a confused “Dude, what?” before rolling back from his camera and not saying anything else for a few moments. “What the f*ck was that?” he added, before getting behind his teammate’s bid for a win.

While the bug may have annoyed other players to the point where they storm off-stream and don’t return, Tfue soldiered on for a few more hours of trios action.

It’s unknown if the bug, which seems pretty difficult to replicate and relies on back luck, is on Epic Games’ radar and if some sort of fix is in place from the developers.

Of course, it’s probably just too late for the v10.00 content update, which is set to add a brand new sniper and possibly new points of interest.

Tfue, as well as the majority of the player base, will also be hoping it includes a nerf to the Mech suits, which have caused serious controversy since being added, deemed far too overpowered.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
