Twitch megastar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has shown sympathy towards Nate Hill, after it emerged that he’s been suspended from the Fortnite Fall Skirmish competition.
Ninja was broadcasting some Fortnite gameplay, when a member of his chat brought up the situation regarding the FaZe Clan member’s suspension.
Nate Hill was suspended when his teammate Funkbomb decided to watch a stream of the game they were in, and pass information on to Nate in an attempt to provide him with an advantage.
When asked his thoughts on the situation, Ninja replied; “It is what it is. What happened happened… You just got to know not to do that man”, making it clear that he didn’t condone the actions of the pair.
Blevins however does have sympathy for Nate Hill, and believes that the FaZe star didn’t ask Funkbomb to go and watch the stream. “I think it just happened, and he didn’t know it was going to”, remarked Ninja, “I don’t think Nate Hill had anything to do with it, just guilty by association.”
Nate Hill has been suspended for two weeks, but will be able to return to Fall Skirmish action when his punishment ends on October 11. Nate will still be a member of the Dusty Dogs club, and remain eligible for club prizing.
Funkbomb, however, has been banned for the rest of the Fall Skirmish, and is ineligible for any club prize money. He won’t be able to return to action until the Fall Skirmish event at TwitchCon on October 26.
Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 13 challenges have arrived, and we’ve got all the information you need to complete each and every quest in no time at all.
We’re now only a few weeks away from the end of Season 5, which is expected to close on March 15, 2021. Things are getting a bit dry, but Epic Games are continuing to pump out weekly challenges to give players something new to focus on.
This week, there’s a mix of weapon damage quests and location-based quests. There are also a few tasks based around the Zero Point, as players will need to destroy some Crystal Trees and enter the Zero Point.
Below, you’ll find the complete list of Week 13 challenges that go live on Thursday, February 25, 2021, at 9AM ET. There are a total of seven Epic quests to work through, as well as a single Legendary quest that will earn you a huge amount of XP.
You’ll need to enter the Zero Point to complete Fortnite’s Week 13 challenges.
The most interesting quest this week is the first one, which tasks players with scanning a server at a Surface Hub. It turns out, these are actually the Imagined Order’s underground bunkers. We’ve got a guide to finding Surface Hubs here.
Throwing fruit at Hunter’s Haven should be easy. Collect fruit from any POI, make your way to Hunter’s Haven, then throw it on the ground. You can also deal damage to opponents here to complete the next challenge, and if you do it with a Pistol, you’ll tick off another in the process.
To bathe in the Purple Pool, you’ll need to visit Steamy Stacks at the northeast of the Season 5 map. You can find the pool inside the main building on the ground floor. We’ve got a guide to finding the Purple Pool here.
Entering the Zero Point requires you to jump out the Battle Bus over the center of the map and glide into it. Doing so won’t harm you, it will actually increase your shield. From here, destroying Crystal Trees is as simple as attacking the crystals that stick out of the sand with your pickaxe.
Steamy Stacks gets its own challenge this week.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 Legendary Quest
Build Structures (60/120/180/240/300)
This week’s Legendary quest should be a lot easier to complete than last week’s challenge, which required players to deal damage to opponents within 10 seconds of Zero Point Dashing.
You won’t even need to engage in combat this week, as you’ll simply need to build a total of 300 structures. As this is something most players do at least a few times during a match, you should complete it during everyday play.
However, if you want to speed things along, we recommend you land at a quiet POI and farm for materials. Once you’ve maxed your inventory out, build away and you’ll tick each tier of this Legendary quest off in no time at all.
Remember, you’ll only have until Thursday, March 4, 2021, to complete all of these quests and earn XP to level up your Battle Pass before Week 14 kicks off and they disappear.
