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.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
