With many fans arguing Fortnite’s regular content drops are slowing down, here’s when to expect a Season 3 update, and when the current Season 2 of Chapter 2 will come to an end. 

It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly 6 months since the black hole swallowed Fortnite’s first chapter, and spat back out Fortnite Chapter 2. Despite initially being praised as the savior of Fortnite, many fans argue that the length of Chapter 2: Season 1 caused the game to lag back into uninspired.

Starting back in October of 2019, Season 1 finally came to a conclusion on February 20, nearly 5 and a half months after it started. In that time, many players argued that new content dried up, and the game became stale. However, as is customary, Season 2 brought with it new content and now, a month on, some players are thinking forwards to what Season 3 will bring, and when it will drop.

Season 2 released in February 2020 with a whole host of changes.

When does Fortnite Season 3 start?

Originally, the second season wasn’t set to last nearly as long as Season 1. Season 2 was set to end on April 30, 2020. However, on April 14, Epic announced that they would be extending it past this original end date.

Season 2 is now set to end towards the beginning of June, with the Season 3 start date officially pushed back to June 4.

In the meantime, Epic has promised fans “multiple game updates on the way that will deliver fresh gameplay, new Challenges, bonus XP, and a couple more surprises.”

Fortnite Season 2 introduced new locations, so we can expect the same in Season 3.

Given the current global situation, a delay to Season 3 was honestly not much of a surprise. It almost entirely depended on how well Epic Games were able to cope, in terms of staff attendance and other obvious factors that had recently become issues.

With Season 3 officially being pushed back, we can still expect some Overtime Challenges to be added as we approach the end of Season 2, though.

We will continue to update you on Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 3 as news becomes available.

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.
