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.

Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
