Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was absolutely stunned after being instantly killed thanks to a strange bug with the in-game boats.

Fortnite features a massive amount of varied content, with Epic Games adding a ton of new stuff with every update, from weapons and mobility to map updates and cosmetics.

One of the newest features are boats, which were added with Chapter 2. These vehicles help players get around quickly on both water and land, but Tfue discovered they can be very dangerous, too, as he was eliminated due to a weird bug.

It turns out that boats in Fortnite can be extremely dangerous.

During a usual Fortnite stream on Feb 13, the former FaZe member was charging at his opponents in a boat while destroying their buildings but was suddenly stopped and instantly eliminated – despite not being shot by any of the enemy players.

Tfue drove right into someone’s building as they placed down some stairs on top of him resulting in an instant “you have eliminated yourself” message, leaving the streamer sat staring at his screen, completely speechless.

His teammate Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff seemed equally confused as he was still battling, before realizing that Tfue had somehow been eliminated and asking “are you dead? Oh, you’re dead.”

It’s not quite clear what happened, but fans are speculating that it has something to do with the fact that Turner drove so close to someone as they were building, resulting in him being ‘crushed’ and eliminated.

If that’s the case, then it’s quite an unfortunate moment and fairly impactful bug, as it changes how aggressive players can be with boats and forces people to be incredibly careful around buildings.

Epic Games have yet to comment on the matter, but will surely be looking to find out why this is occurring and fix it as quickly as possible.


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
