Twitch streamer obliterates PC setup in rage after Fortnite death

Fortnite can be a very frustrating game if you lose a fight that you think you should’ve won, but that doesn’t exactly mean you should start smashing your PC setup.

If you’re looking to make any sort of money from playing Fortnite, you’re going to need to put a lot of practice into the game.

Fortnite is a game that’s very easy to pick up, but extremely difficult to master, and players run into a lot of bumps in the road along the way to improvement. This streamer, though, hit a pretty big bump during a game.

Epic Games

Twitch streamer ZuckNZ was practicing his edits in a box fight when he ended up being bested by his opponent. After fighting for position with the other player, when it came time for both to fight, Zuck was wiped out with a clean shot.

Directly after his in-game death, he let his emotions get the best of him and he decided to demolish his streaming setup.

He punched his desk a couple of times before picking up his keyboard and hitting it several times against his desk, causing the sound to go out on his stream.

Purchasing nice PC peripherals isn’t the cheapest thing in the world, so being so rough with them isn’t the most ideal scenario and Zuck will be hoping none of his equipment is too damaged, as this could become an expensive moment of rage.

Sometimes, your emotions do boil over and you need some way to let off some steam. Everyone remembers summit1g’s infamous monitor punch, so this keyboard smash is far from the first time this has happened.

Zuck stepped away from his stream to calm down a bit, but returned a few minutes later and went on to have an eight-hour stream.

Sometimes all you have to do is let go of your frustration to get the focus back. With that said, you should probably find a different outlet as destroying your keyboard and desk isn’t really the best idea.

We’ll just have to see if this rage ends up being good for his Fortnite skills in the long run.


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
