Popular Fortnite professional Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was left stunned after being eliminated, not once, but twice by traps – before a bizarre pause finished off another match.

When it comes to Fortnite on Twitch, there is perhaps no bigger name than Tfue. The popular pro player has over 7.2 million followers on the platform, with upwards of 30,000 tuning in on a daily basis. 

With no LAN events to set his sights on, Tenney has been competing in the weekly online FNCS sessions alongside longtime teammate Dennis ‘Cloak' Lepore, Fiber, and Khanada. Before he jumps in with his squad, though, he takes in some ‘high kills’ solo matches to warm-up – but they don’t always work out that way.

During his November 11 stream, Tfue had been warming up as normal when he jumped into a close-quarters one-on-one fight.

As he usually does, the Fortnite pro got the best of his enemy, gunning them down with his shotgun, before making a mistake and dropping in front of a wall trap. While his chat laughed, Tfue jokingly covered his camera and told them to “don’t look,” before heading for the exit.

Yet, he didn’t have much luck in his other games either, as again, he fell to a trap near Frenzy Farm. This time though, it wasn’t exactly a mistake, but more of a hilarious piece of timing.

Tfue had his eyes set on an enemy who stole one of his eliminations and promised to hunt them down. As he tried, however, he jumped off the roof and was taken out by a roof trap – leaving him red in the face.

His bad luck in the solos matches was compounded in another moment. This time, it appeared to be a glitch that stopped him in his tracks. 

Again, Tfue was locked in a one-on-one fight when his enemy took the high ground and tried to gun his down. As he looked up, the streamer’s screen was filled with the pause menu, prompting him to freeze.

“What the f*ck!” the American called out, but it was too late, as he’d already been taken down by his foe. 

Now, of course, everyone can have an off-day in a battle royale like Fortnite – that’s the way RNG [random number generator] works.

Tfue, though, will probably bounce back with a spectacular 30 kill solo win on his next stream because, well, that’s how he rolls.
