Popular Fortnite streamer and professional player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has been left in disbelief by multiple stream snipers targeting him during the Solo Platform Cash Cup.
The Cash Cup gives out around $10,000 each week, in each region, which may seem measly in comparison to the hundreds of millions given out in prize money over the last 18 months, but is still not bad for a day’s work, and enough to justify being angry at stream snipers.
Stream snipers have been a constant issue for many content creators in recent years, which is bad enough as is, but it definitely crosses a line when people are stream sniping players actively competing in tournaments.
Tfue shot to fame after joining FaZe Clan in April 2018
During his seventh game of the tournament, sitting at just 28 points, Tfue was challenged on the coast of Slurpy Swamp on the south-west side of the map.
He had high-ground on a player that was clearly looking for the elimination and after some defensive play, he charged at his enemy. “I play these fights tedious, you want to know why, chat? Because these kids are f*cking stream snipers bro.”

Whilst in the midst of a fight with the original stream sniper, Tfue ends up getting attacked by a third-party, sniped and eliminated whilst trying to heal up. All he can do is hold his head in his hands as he backs out and into the lobby.
After a long sigh, he explained: “I am literally at the edge of the f*cking map in a swamp where there is no loot and I’m getting rotated on by multiple people… I don’t get it. I just don’t even know.”
Tfue ended up making no gains on his 28 points and placing 2794th – a ranking far below his and his fan’s expectations. No doubt this was made even more difficult by being stream sniped throughout.
Unfortunately, such is the effect of having fame in the way Tfue does. Whether he is right or wrong, stream snipers have been around for as long as streaming has, and Fortnite’s popularity has just heightened the issue as more and more players want to face off with their favorite streamers.
Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.
A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.
Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.
The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.
Fortnite Galactus event start date and time
Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.
The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.
Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.
Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.
Galactus Fortnite event leaks
The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.
Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.
With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.
The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.
The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.
We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.
On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.
Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
New Weapon in the works: "Lazing Device"
It's WID is all over the place, but I suspect this *could* be a prototype of the upcoming Cosmos (event and/or Galactus) rifle.
It uses Base Bolt Sniper stats, same as the Cosmos ones. The name "Lazing" could also be connected to this. pic.twitter.com/GgVuOcYot8
