The long-standing rivalry between Tfue and Ninja has been well-documented and stretches back before their Fortnite days. They used to throw down in H1Z1 before switching to Epic Games’ title, and from there, they’ve been going head-to-head ever since.
The streamers have traded blows back and forth on-stream, with Tfue getting the upper-hand before Ninja beat him in a World Cup warm-up game. While it may seem like an in-game rivalry, Tfue has gone as far as claiming that they’ve never gotten on.
So, when he was handed the chance to finish off Ninja’s team in the final zone of a match, it made sense to plenty of viewers that he was going to do it in style.
Of course, during his November 16 stream, Tenney did just that while playing in a round of Fortnite Championship Series matches.
The popular Twitch streamer was left to clutch up as his teammates dropped at the hands of Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner. Instead of pulling out a Compact SMG or a Pump Shotgun, Ninja let the zone tick away at Reverse2K’s health before delivering the final few blows with a pickaxe.
While some fans may have assumed that there’d be a big blow-off celebration from Tenney, he was a bit more subdued than that – settling for a few strange noises and a big smile instead.
As for Ninja, well he tipped his cap to his teammate for trying to clutch and but noted that there was nothing he could do in the end.

Even though they lost the battle again Tfue, in pretty humiliating fashion, it wasn’t all bad news for Ninja’s new-look squad.
They managed to finish up the online round of matches in a solid sixth position, while Tfue’s squad climbed to third with three victories from seven games.
