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.

How to pull off powerful Fortnite She-Hulk and Ironman “super-jump”

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has done it again ⁠— the Fortnite star has uncovered yet another powerful interactive involving the new Marvel mythics. This time, he’s combined the She-Hulk and Ironman items to pull off a map-traversing “super-jump.”

It seems like a new mythic item is arriving in Fortnite every week during Season 4. The Marvel-themed season has appropriately themed items to go along with it, bringing each hero’s superpowers into the game.

Thor can toss around his Mjolnir, Iron Man can fly around, and well, She-Hulk can smash. Her mythic was added into the game in the latest update for players to muck around with.

She-Hulk’s mythic has finally been added to the main game.

She-Hulk’s smash allows her to jump incredible distances before smashing into the ground, knocking enemies up, and dealing damage. It’s very effective for closing down distances on opponents.

Her mythic is also very good at getting across the map quickly. SypherPK has managed to break Fortnite once again using his favorite combination of tools: Marvel mythics, and crash pads.

If you use the She-Hulk and Ironman mythics while jumping off a crash pad, you’re able to fly basically all the way across the Fortnite island. Obviously it’s a little bit silly, but if you need to make a cross-map rotation pronto, there’s no faster way.

“Iron man, plus Hulk smash jump ⁠— you get a really big boost there. Doing it in the water makes you go much further, and once you add a crash pad…it’s really cool,” Sypher said.

Segment begins at 4:54

Here’s a quick step-by-step guide:

  1. Deploy a crash pad in water.
  2. Jump in the water, and use the Iron Man Repulsor to jump into the air.
  3. Swap to the She-Hulk mythic, and use that to jump off the crash pad.
  4. Watch as you fly as far as you want across the map.

Obviously, this is probably a glitch. However, that shouldn’t stop you from abusing it whenever you get the chance ⁠— either for a bit of fun, or for a real advantage.

Epic is likely to patch it out of the game shortly, so you don’t have long to test it out for yourself. If you do manage to nab both mythics though, give it a whirl, and you might find yourself super-jumping across the map too.
