Some Fortnite Battle Royale players will take defeats better than others, but this Twitch streamer was absolutely incensed after being eliminated. 

French streamer magouille29, who can regularly be seen playing Epic Games’ battle royale game, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and a number of other popular titles, couldn’t believe his eyes after being taken out in a game of squads. 

While it would be an easy guess to say that it was the death that annoyed the player so much, that wasn’t entirely the case as tensions boiled over with one of his teammates. 

epic gamesTeammates are supposed to help in Fortnite, but not this time.

While broadcasting the whole match on Twitch for people to see, a member of his squad started to pester him with questions as he was trying to concentrate. 

Translated from French, they said: “Do you have sniper bullets? Give me sniper bullets, give me sniper bullets, give me sniper bullets.” 

He responded: “Wait… wait, calm down bro, don’t you see I’m in trouble?”Just moments later, though, magouille29 was put to the sword and couldn’t contain his emotions. “F**k it! Obviously! You’re asking me for sniper bullets! Son of a b**ch! Son of a b**ch!

After rotating between a few weapons in a pool of loot, left by an eliminated enemy, the streamer was taken down from behind and instantly started to trash everything around him.

Magouille29 took something from his desk and launched it across the room, before removing his headset – which soon suffered the same fate. He took a few moments to calm down in the background, away from the camera, before finally making a return to Fortnite Chapter 2. 

There’s no doubt that the game can be frustrating at times, especially when players come across bugs or insta-death areas, but you wouldn’t expect a rage moment like this to be caused by your own teammate. They are supposed to help out!

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
