UnknownxArmy calls out Tfue for using 2nd account in Fortnite Cash Cup

Professional Fortnite player Dominick “UnknownxArmy1x” Green has called out Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney for using multiple accounts in the Fortnite Cash Cup to get a better result.

The Fortnite Cash Cups are small weekly tournaments that give the best players an opportunity to make some money and prove their skill against the top players in their region and on their platform.

Obviously, this means the top competitive players usually rise to the top, but also gives lesser-known players an opportunity to work their way up. But Unknown thinks Tfue – one of the biggest names in Fortnite – may be abusing the system.

Tfue has seen a lot of success throughout his Fortnite career – more than many could dream of.

In a tweet posted late on Wednesday, April 15, Unknown said that Tfue “switches accounts every time he’s doing bad to reset the cup,” meaning that he just jumps on to a second account during his 10 matches to try and get more points – basically giving him up to 20 matches in the tournament rather than just 10.

He also asks, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, whether he can do that too, though whether he’s being serious or suggesting Tfue gets away with something he shouldn’t isn’t quite clear.

Obviously he’s not totally impressed with the former FaZe star’s actions either way, and there were some very mixed responses from his peers and fans in the replies.

Multiple pro players retweeted it, including Team Liquid’s Ryan ‘Chap’ Chaplo and fellow NRG member Will ‘Zayt’ Aubin, obviously thinking there’s something slightly off with Tfue being able to simply switch accounts for better results.

Despite this, there doesn’t appear to be anything in the rules that says players aren’t allowed to switch accounts during the Cash Cups, so Tfue isn’t breaking any rules in doing so, regardless of what people think of the moral implications.

Many people responded to the tweet saying that he should be allowed to do so because of stream snipers making it impossible to have the same chance of performing well as other players.

Whether or not it’s something Epic Games themselves deem wrong, or even disallow it, remains to be seen.

Regardless of what they think or do about it, though, it’s clearly rubbing some players the wrong way, so they might want to address it sooner rather than later.

We’re now into Fortnite Season 4, Week 8, and that means we have a new set of challenges to complete, with one asking players to drive a car through a rift.

Season 4 is all about superheroes, with some of Marvel’s recognizable heroes taking residence on Fortnite’s island in preparation for a showdown with the evil Galactus. The villain is on his way to change the reality of the game forever, but he’ll face a tough task with characters like Iron Man, Dr. Doom, and Black Panther making the map their home.

With the release of the 14.30 update on Tuesday, we’ve officially kicked off Week 8 of the fourth season, and as always, that means we have a brand-new set of challenges to sink your teeth into.

While this challenge, which asks you to drive a car into a rift, sounds a little complicated, it’s actually fairly straight forward, and we’ve got everything you need to complete this challenge as quickly as possible so you can go back to getting Victory Royales.

How to quickly complete Fortnite’s ‘Drive a car into a rift’ challenge

Finding an actual rift won’t be too difficult, as they can be seen floating in the air all across the map. Finding a car and a rift in close proximity isn’t quite as easy though, and that’s what you’ll want to do if you want to avoid driving around aimlessly hoping to stumble across one, during which time you could find yourself under attack from enemy players.

The good news is that there are at least two locations that have cars close to a rift, which will make this challenge incredibly easy to complete, and also mean you won’t spend ages trying to do it, so you can get back to hunting down opponents and eliminating them from the game.

The easiest place to grab vehicles is Stark Industries, which has lots of cars in the parking lot, with a rift on the road that heads north when you leave through the main exit. The north-west below the Lighthouse also has Trask’s Truck sitting ready to be driven, with rifts on the hills around it. We’ve marked the two locations on the map below.

There are two locations that should make this challenge a doddle.

You may have to build a ramp up to some of the rifts to make sure your car goes through it, but once you get catapulted high into the sky, you should receieve a notification telling you that it is now completed.

It’s definitely worth taking this task on if you’re working on your Season 4 Battle Pass, as it offers a massive 25,000 XP reward to help you boost up and unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
