To the dismay of streamers and professional players, Fortnite is rife with stream snipers and there isn’t any end in sight.

Epic Games have implemented settings like Streamer Mode to stop vulgar usernames popping up on a streamers screen, but it doesn’t stop people getting into games.

Stream delays can be implemented but even that doesn’t stop the best of the stream snipers.

Now, In a video titled, ‘I stream sniped Ninja to get BANNED in Fortnite..’ ShotGunPlays describes the process of how he stream snipes some of the biggest names in the game.

Popular streamers like Ninja often have a difficult time dealing with stream snipers.

“As he’s queuing as well, I’m in a game and he’s still queuing which probably means I’m not in his game. I back out and keep checking his delay because he could be queuing in like 10 more seconds from now.”

He continues to say: “If I instant queue now, I could get into his game. That’s essentially how you do it. I think, at least, because this is what I’ve done and it’s worked for most of my stuff.”

ShotGunPlays warns viewers that they can be banned for stream sniping – and he has been banned on a few accounts, but he was making the video to show how Epic Games’ reporting system ‘sucks.’

“I have to try queuing and calculate the match delay because it is kinda random. I just have to queue, tab over to his stream so I can see if he’s queuing too,” he says.

He initially joins the game of a smaller streamer – called Nico – and begins trolling them and attempts to secure an elimination, in turn, revealing his new account name, StremStripeReport, to the streamer.

After a small build battle, ShotGunPlays puts himself into a mounted turret and kills the streamer revealing his identity. ShotGunPlays attempts to join a game of Ninja’s but when he does eventually end up in a game with the streamer, he lands in the wrong area – killing his chances of stream sniping him.

He later revealed that he had been reported by a number of people he has stream sniped but it took far longer than he thought it would and that he was banned for ‘teaming,’ without a real stream sniping reason.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
