FaZe Clan Fortnite pro Tfue won the second week of the game’s Fall Skirmish series while sick with the flu – even throwing up in the middle of a game.

Tfue noted to his audience during a stream of the event that he was feeling out of sorts, expressing that he felt fairly nauseous.

“I just wanna lay down, man,” he said. “I don’t even wanna think about it dude, I’m gonna throw up.”

He could be seen retching just off-camera as he presumably reached for a wastebasket.

Tfue tweeted about his comeback after securing a Victory Royale Flush in game two. “Went from puking to dropping a Victory Royale flush game 2 in fall skirmish week 2,” he wrote, much to his fans’ amusement.

That wasn’t the only crazy instance the pro had on-stream during the Skirmish, either. He even left his setup to use the bathroom, then came back to win the game.

Tfue’s #1 placement in the second Fall Skirmish event was met with raucous celebration from his teammates. He dove out of his window at his victory, where the rest of FaZe clan could be heard cheering.

Tfue is currently at the top of the tournament’s standings. 

His determination through sickness shows just how hard the streamer is willing to work for his results – even going so far as to compete while throwing up.

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).
