Tfue stunned as frustrating Fortnite glitches ruin his match

Popular Twitch streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney uncovered game-breaking Fortnite bugs that left him and many of his viewers stunned during his April 30 broadcast.

As with any multiplayer titles, Fortnite has had many glitches since its release in 2017 that can potentially alter the course of the game.

While most of the bugs found in the popular battle royale are often minor, popular streamer Tfue found himself stuck in one the most bizarre glitches yet while livestreaming on April 30.

Tfue is one of the most popular pros in Fortnite.

Tfue was playing alongside teammate Scoped during the weekly Contender Cup and encountered an unfortunate glitch that left him stuck in place shortly after dropping in.

While he is known for landing at The Grotto in his competitive Fortnite matches, Tfue was stunned after he accidentally dropped to his death from the large pylon while everyone was racing for weapons.

Scoped managed to revive him quickly, however, after standing up, Tfue found that he was trapped in a bizarre glitch that prevented him from moving, although he could still aim and shoot, even picking up a kill on one of his fellow competitors from the static position.

With no way to make it to the next circle, Tfue’s teammate Scoped managed to pull Tfue off the top to the ground, causing him to die from fall damage in the hoping that grabbing his teammate’s reboot card and bringing him back again would fix the popular streamer’s issues.

Unfortunately for Tfue, that was not the case and although he could move when he was respawned, he was now unable to run, jump or pick up any weapons on the floor, leaving him frustrated with the chain of unusual bugs.

“Wait I can’t run bro, I’m not even kidding it won’t let me, can we even play this out?” a frustrated Tfue asked. “It won’t let me pick up anything.”

Tfue died in-game a little later and left Scoped to his own devices while he left to reset his game and fix any bugs ahead of his other scheduled matches.

Despite the frustrating glitches, the pair managed to finish in fourth place during that stage of the tournament, netting 330 points in total for their efforts.

This is not the first time that Tfue’s tournament hopes have been interrupted by a bug, as one of his teammates had died to a bizarre fall glitch, only a day prior, during the April 29 Duos cup.

Fortnite leak hints at Tomb Raider crossover with Lara Croft skin

Fortnite players are convinced that the game’s next major crossover skin will be Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise.

When Season 5 of Epic Games’ popular battle royale launched in December 2020, it came with the theme of ‘bounty hunters’ as Agent Jonesy attempted to “gather the greatest hunters across all realities” to protect The Loop.

So far, we’ve seen hunters including God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and of course The Mandalorian make appearances in the game as playable skins.

Who’s next? Well, fans have been gathering clues – alongside a recent leak – and they think they’ve discovered that the next newcomer to The Island will be none other than Tomb Raider legend Lara Croft.

Is Lara Croft going to be in Fortnite?

According to Fortnite dataminer Mang0e, a new crossover skin codenamed ‘Typhoon’ will be arriving in the game soon. It will be a female character with reactive styles, and the portal on the map indicting her arrival has a ‘flicker’ effect.

While codenames like this one don’t always have a link to the final skin, some fans believe that ‘Typhoon’ is a reference to the opening of 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, where Lara gets stranded on an island after a violent storm sinks her ship.

As for being reactive, there could be a number of possibilities. One could be that as the player receives damage, the skin appears more bloody and bandaged up, which would reflect Lara’s modern appearance in the recent trilogy of games.

Lara Croft would fit the ‘hunter’ theme of Fortnite Season 5.

A recent tweet from the official Tomb Raider account has added even more fuel to the fire. Using symbols, the tweet depicts Lara thinking about three emojis. One of them is a pickaxe, which is a piece of Fortnite iconography.

Of course, Lara uses a pickaxe in her own game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. Lara would also fit the ‘hunter’ aspect of the season, as she uses her bow and arrow to hunt prey in the games.

The rumors have even got some dedicated fans creating their own artwork. Twitter user @wawa_cwoft mocked up what Lara Croft could look like as a Fortnite character, and it’s got us fully on board with the concept (as if we weren’t already).

But what if it’s not Lara Croft? Well, there’s been heavy speculation about Metroid’s intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran joining Fortnite as a crossover skin.

With Kratos representing PlayStation and Master Chief representing Xbox, Nintendo are the only company behind the ‘big three’ consoles who haven’t got a skin representing them yet. Samus could be perfect for the job.

Whoever the new crossover skin turns out to be, fans will be able to get their hands on them soon enough as Season 5 of Fortnite is scheduled to come to an end on March 16, 2021.
