A Fortnite: Battle Royale Reddit user came up with a simple, yet effective in-game concept which would allow players to see how much ammo they had left in their clip.

Since its release in 2017, it is hard to argue that any other title can match up with the success of Fortnite: Battle Royale at the time of writing, with the game becoming a worldwide phenomenon in such a short period of time.

While some may appreciate in-game features such as unique graphics, a one-of-a-kind building system, and fun-to-use items, others praise the fact that Fortnite continuously receives updates from Epic Games to ensure the best gaming experience possible.

Community members provide consistent feedback to the developer on a wide range of different topics and aspects of Fortnite, which have been seriously taken into account by Epic Games, and sometimes even implemented. 

Although Fortnite has undergone a collection of major changes over the course of its lifespan to upgrade certain features, some have questioned if the possibility of being able to view how many rounds a player has left in their clip will ever be introduced

With this in mind, a Reddit user by the name of Heheas posted a very simple concept on the FortniteBR subreddit that would show how many bullets a player has left in the HUD menu which could be a huge help to some.

Even though the post currently has over 6,900 ‘upvotes’ at the time of writing, the concept has been somewhat criticized by those that believe the HUD does not need to have more ‘clutter,’ and that the idea would potentially take part of the ‘skill gap’ away.

It is unknown if Epic Games has any plans to introduce such an idea in the future for Fortnite.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
