BenjyFishy and Zayt discuss why some pro players don’t stream

It might seem like a missed opportunity when some of the best players in Fortnite don’t regularly stream. Zayt and Benjyfishy discuss why this is the case.

The Fortnite talent pool has grown exponentially in the past couple of years. There was a time when people like Myth, Hamlinz, Ninja, and Nick Eh 30 were considered the best players in the game. Now, they’re mostly thought of as content creators, first.

Many of the top players in Fortnite – such as UnknownxArmy, Bugha, and Clix – regularly stream for their audiences. Most people know that this is where the money is – not in placing in tournaments.

Pretty much all Fortnite pros stream every now and then, but some take the content creation side more seriously than others. This lack of attention to streaming inspired this tweet from YouTuber, Wildcat.

“No community squanders opportunity quite like the Fortnite community,” he wrote. “Ya’ll had it soooooo GOOD and STILL have it good and just don’t care enough to make use of it. Crazy. Top players never streaming, people quitting bc an OPEN tourney prize pool is only $4M in a month. Waste.”

Not everyone views streaming this way, however, as pro player Zayt revealed in a quote tweet.

“I hate when people go ‘Top players never streaming’ ‘waste’ do they not realise streaming isn’t for everyone? Because you love your job doesn’t mean everyone does?”

Zayt put it simply in a response to Wildcat’s reply. He wants to win. He doesn’t care about building a brand or making money – at least right now. He wants to be a champion.

This statement is coming from experience, as well. Zayt hasn’t streamed in over two months. He last went live for the Search and Destroy tournament.

Benjyfishy, who sporadically streams as well, added his own thoughts to the topic. In his opinion, you need to either focus on being the best or focus on creating content – not both.

This methodology might seem like a “waste” to viewers who want to see the best players in the world, but it makes sense. Content creators like SypherPK and Ninja are on the other side of the coin.

The two have openly talked about how they haven’t been focusing on competitive Fortnite. They want to create content and grow, which means they don’t have time to focus on being the best.

At the end of the day, most of these pro Fortnite players are incredibly young. They have plenty of time to focus on creating content in the future. For now, while they’re in their prime, they want to be the best in the game.

How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.

Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is offering players a plethora of ways to earn XP and rank up through the Battle Pass. The most recently-added XP-gathering method is through the XP Coins.

Most players will remember XP Coins from the past few seasons. They seemed to be everywhere back then, but they were removed at the start of the season.

Ahead, we’ll give you a map of all the XP coin locations. We’ll make sure to update you as more XP Coins are added to the map.

Fortnite XP Coin locations

XP coins are scattered all across the map. You can find them from Catty Corner to Stealthy Stronghold. Here’s a map of all of the available XP Coins, so far.

We’ll keep this post updated as more XP coins become available. You’ll need to reach level 250 to unlock all of the enlightened skins in Season 5, so finding these will be well worth your time.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.

Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, but there’s still about two months left. The holiday break extended the latest season, so there’s still plenty of time to make your way through the Battle Pass.

The Week 7 challenges are relatively straightforward, with most of them able to be completed without too much effort.

A couple of these challenges will have you searching the same area in Slurpy Swamp, so a favorable bus path in Team Rumble will allow you to complete them in one shot. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges

The good news in the Week 7 challenges is that all of them can be completed in Team Rumble. We have a separate article detailing the locations of Books in Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands. You can find that here.

The Legendary challenge requires players to deal damage to opponents in Vehicles. This one is going to be a headache, as there’s no way to force another player to be inside of a car or boat when you shoot them.

Hopefully, you can get into a game of Team Rumble with like-minded enemies – sitting in Motorboats and trading shots with you. If not, it’s going to take some serious gaming to finish this one. Good luck!
