Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has given his verdict on Riot Games’ new FPS title, Valorant, and explains why it has no chance of stealing away Fortnite’s player base, for one key reason.

While the majority of the streaming community was full of praise for Riot’s new tactical FPS, one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, Tfue, was the complete opposite, calling Valorant “boring” and an “old man’s game”.

Tfue is best known now for his Fortnite skills, considered one of the best players in the game, but before Fortnite he was also a top player in other shooter titles, including PUBG.

Valorant’s gameplay is slower and tactical than some FPS games, meaning it’s not for everyone.

Although he almost exclusively plays Fortnite now, his viewers were still interested to hear his verdict on the new game of the moment, Valorant, so he dived in for a couple games on April 7, as the Closed Beta began.

It didn’t take the Fortnite pro long to come to the conclusion that this simply wasn’t the game for him though, explaining that he found the general gameplay loop “boring” and the pace of the matches too slow.

“It’s pretty f**king boring dude, I don’t like playing on a team with people. I just like 1v1,” he said, after a viewer doubted how much they’d play. “This game is boring me. I mean, it’s a good game, it’s just boring.”

He went on to say that it’s for “older people”, and that he’d “rather just play CS:GO.”

“I feel like [Valorant] is like CS:GO, but except for like skill, you just kill people with abilities,” he concluded, before jumping into a match.

Losing a close game by 9 rounds to 10, Tfue explained to his Fortnite duo Scoped why he doesn’t think Valorant will be a hit with younger players – Fortnite’s primary target audience.

“It’s just so f**king slow, kids aren’t going to want to play this, it’s more of like a patient, strategy-based, old man’s game, you know?”

Eventually, Tfue’s team lost the match by 13 rounds to 11, and he quickly exited and went back to Fortnite, where he and his duo got back to winning ways.

His comments may not deter Riot Games though, as they likely weren’t targeting the younger gamers who would rather play Fortnite, given the more punishing gameplay in Valorant. Instead, they’re more likely targeting players who favor games like CS:GO, Rainbow 6 Siege or Overwatch.

The beta got off to a hot start on Twitch too, pulling in over 1.7 million concurrent viewers at its peak. Although some of this will be down to the drops for access to the beta, which could only be acquired through watching streams.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
