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.

The Alien franchise is now in Fortnite as Season 5’s latest collaboration has introduced Ellen Ripley and the iconic Xenomorph into the game. Here’s how you can grab the new skins.

Continuing the trend of Fortnite Season 5, another huge franchise has crossed over into the battle royale. From Tron to AMC’s The Walking Dead, and everything in between, we’ve already seen some stunning additions this season.

As each new week has come with its fair share of surprises, Epic has continued to shock the gaming industry. This time around, it’s sci-fi heroine Ellen Ripley alongside her most recognizable foe, a Xenomorph. 

From the imposing new skins to a hilarious Chestburser emote, there’s plenty up for grabs. Here’s how you can get your hands on the new Alien bundle in Fortnite.

How to get Alien skins in Fortnite

Unique cosmetic items are usually unlocked in a few key ways. Some can be claimed through the seasonal Battle Pass while others might have specific challenges tied to them. For this new bundle, however, grabbing every item is all too simple.

The entire Space Gear Bundle can be acquired through Fortnite’s in-game Item Shop for a limited time.

These unmistakable characters and items bring the look and feel of the 1979 classic into Epic’s popular battle royale. Players can drop into the map as the terrifying Xenomorph or hop into combat as the ruthless Ripley.

Epic confirmed in a blog post these items are available from Thursday, February 25 onwards. Outside of the two Alien skins, you’ll also be able to grab a number of additional goodies.

The Alien cosmetics set consists of the following items:

  • Ellen Ripley Skin
  • Xenomorph Skin
  • Xenomorph Tail Back Bling
  • Xeno Menace (Built-in Emote)
  • Nostromo Crew Outfit
  • Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier
  • P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe
  • Cheyenne Dropship Glider
  • Burst Case Scenario Emote

While they’re available at the time of writing, Epic is yet to confirm when they’ll be disappearing from the in-game store.

Fortnite’s Item Shop is always rotating, so be sure to get in quick and grab the Alien set before it’s too late. Upon your next drop, expect to see a ton of Alien activity across the map.
