TSM Myth Hits Out at Critics of New Battle Royale Titles

One of the top Fortnite players and streamers, TSM’s Ali “Myth” Kabbani has hit out at naysayers of new Battle Royale titles.

Of course, Fortnite has become not only the biggest Battle Royale game over the last six months ahead of PUBG and H1Z1, but also the biggest game in general, all over the world (perhaps with the exception of East Asia, where it is yet to take off).

With any big gaming trend though, there are always attempts by other developers to get in on the action, and there have been increasing numbers of BR games released and announced since the genre’s boom.

Interestingly though, one of Fortnite’s minor achievements has been to cultivate a very loyal following, one which seems averted to any new titles in the genre, labelling them as copycats or rip off’s.

But Myth has expressed he is critical of this stance, and a number of other high profile community members are with him on it.

He exlpains that having such an aversion to Battle Royale games achieves nothing, and that fans should simply be happy that there are new games to try. If they like them, good, if not, fine.

He made clear that he was referring to the new ‘Battlerite’ game which was recently announced, and which some portions of BR fans have denounced as a copycat of Fortnite.

Other games such as the Darwin Project and Fear the Wolves, and also Red Dead Redemption 2 have also received similar criticism.

And names in community agree, such as OpTic Gaming member Davis “Hitch” Edwards.

The new Battlerite battle royale mode is set to release this summer on PC, and will also feature ‘situational building’ – obviously very similar to Fortnite.

However, it is only a 20 player game – rather than Fortnite’s 100 player matches.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

The Iron Man jetpack can be found through the map as floor loot.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
