Popular Fortnite professional Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was able to get a leg up on longtime rival Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins after wiping him and his team out of a squads match. 

Tfue and Ninja have a long-standing history, doing battle in H1Z1’s battle royale mode before kicking it up a notch in Fortnite. Despite being two of the most popular members of the game’s community, the pair seemingly do not get on – with Tfue himself claiming that Ninja has always hated him.

So, whenever they get the chance to lock horns in Fortnite, sparks usually fly and stream viewers go off the rails with their spam. That was, of course, no different during the October 26 round of the Fortnite Championship Series warm-up when their respective squads went head-to-head.

Ninja TwitterNinja and Tfue have been competing against each other for quite some time.

While both teams put in solid showings throughout the event, it was Tfue who stole the show with an incredible sniper shot. As his squad pushed towards the safe zone within Frenzy Farm, he hit a 78-meter shot on a player crawling into the cornfields.

As Tfue’s squad debated whether or not to take the fight, one member repeatedly called out that it was Ninja and his team. That call-out prompted them to sprint and get right into the middle of the action, hoping to eliminate the Mixer streamer’s squad.

That’s easier said than done, however, considering the fact that there were over 40 players left and the zone was growing smaller and smaller. 

It didn’t matter all too much, though, as Tfue’s team continued on with their rush, managing to take out members of Ninja’s team. As they corraled the final two players into a small area, Tfue himself gunned them down with back-to-back shotgun blasts.

Even though he may have lost a battle within the warm-up series war, it wasn’t all bad news for Ninja considering his new-look squad got some high-level practice in against top-tier Fortnite pros.

Both he and Tfue will be hoping for success in the Fortnite Championship Series which gets underway, officially, on November 1.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
