Bugha begs for Fortnite aim assist nerf after dying to Scoped

Reigning Fortnite World Cup Solo winner Bugha begged Epic Games for a Fortnite aim assist nerf after dying to a pro controller player.

Reigning Fortnite World Cup Solo winner Bugha begged Epic Games for a Fortnite aim assist nerf after dying to a pro controller player.

Aim assist in Fortnite is a near-daily topic ’round these parts. Professional Fortnite players and content creators alike seem to complain about aim assist on a daily basis and many keyboard and mouse players think the setting is overpowered.

Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf has been relatively outspoken on aim assist since the topic has caught fire. He and a long list of other pro players can’t stand to get eliminated by an opponent using a controller.

During a pro duo scrimmage over the weekend, Bugha was eliminated by A1 Scoped – Tfue’s duo partner and a controller player. Bugha was three-shot out of the sky and went on to beg Epic Games for an aim assist nerf.

As the title of the Reddit post notes, Bugha was only 51 HP when he died. The World Cup Winner claimed that “no keyboard and mouse player hits that s***,” but the replay told a different story.

Bugha was gliding in a straight line, directly at Scoped with 51 HP. All Scoped had to do was aim and shoot – something that any professional Fortnite player should be able to do.

Even Tfue, Scoped’s partner and avid aim assist hater, had to admit that this wasn’t the time to be complaining about aim assist. When he learned how much health Bugha had, Tfue told hist partner, “I don’t know why he’s mad, then.”

Of course, at the heart of the argument, Tfue agrees with Bugha. He’s been one of the most prolific aim assist complainers on the platform. Part of the reason Tfue chose Scoped as a duo partner was the fact that he thinks aim assist is OP.

The aim assist debate isn’t cooling down anytime soon. Epic appears to be unwilling to nerf the setting – as they want to keep top-level controller play viable. The more controller players make noise in a professional setting, the louder these complaints become.

Skins & exclusive console cosmetics leaked for Fortnite Season 5

Fortnite leaks reveal upcoming skins including a new Renegade Raider and Fishstick style.

We’re just over the halfway mark in Fortnite Season 4, but fans are already looking ahead to what the next season will hold. Today, October 1, the Fortnite data miner, Hypex, gave us the first small pieces of information about Fortnite Season 5.

These leaks include some confirmed and unconfirmed information that he received from an anonymous source. We assume that this is the same source that leaked Hypex some early – and accurate – information about Fortnite Season 4, so we’re leaning toward trusting this leak.

So far, Hypex has confirmed a “Ginger Renegade Raider, and an exclusive PS5 skin. He’s also speculating about a skin from concept artist Sharktoofs1 (creator of skins such as the Cozy Chomps and Boxy skins) along with an exclusive Xbox S skin.

A Ginger Renegade Raider skin would make sense for the next Fortnite season, as Season 5 will almost certainly run into the Christmas season. Renegade Raider is one of Fortnite’s most popular skin variants, and Epic have been giving it more attention, of late.

The concept comes from @Fercho_UwU and is about what you’d expect: Renegade Raider with some Gingerbread clothing.

The other skin concept that’s rumored to be coming to the game is “Giddy-Up Fishstick” from @sharktoofs1. That’s right; it looks like we’re going to get yet another Fishstick skin in Fortnite.

As we covered, above, Sharktoofs already has several popular skins in Fortnite, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see another one come into the game. This one is, simply, Fishstick riding the inflatable llama from the Giddyup skin.

As for the exclusive Xbox and PlayStation skins, these remain to be seen. Of course, these are only leaks and might not come to fruition. If this is the same source that Hypex had for his Season 4 leaks, however, there’s a good chance that they’re legitimate.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about all of these skins, although we’ll probably have to wait for a patch or two before data miners find them in the game files.

Challenges

Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

The Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 challenges are here! Take a look at how to complete them.

Published

It seems like just yesterday that we were staying up all night, waiting for the new season of Fortnite. Surprisingly, we’re already into Week 6 with another batch of challenges to help carry us through the Battle Pass.

Although weekly challenges offer a lower amount of XP this season, it seems like we’re working through the Battle Pass quicker than normal. Even still, we have a long way to go before we unlock all of our holographic variants, so we’ll be grinding away at these challenges.

The week’s challenges are pretty straightforward. All we need to do is consume some foraged items, deal some damage, and search some chests. Here are the challenges for Week 6:

  • Search Chests at Weeping Woods (7)
  • Eliminations at Misty Meadows (3)
  • Collect Stone from Coral Castle (300)
  • Consume a Legendary Fish
  • Consume Foraged Items at Holly Hedges (10)
  • Ride a Zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp (500)

The inclusion of a challenge involving Black Panther’s ability suggests that we could see it come into the base game this week, but we don’t know that for sure. Epic could be pushing us toward the Marvel-based LTMs that have been rotating in and out of the game. We’ll know more when these challenges go live, tomorrow.

Collecting foraged items at Holly Hedges is as easy as taking some damage in Team Rumble and eating the Cabbage that is growing in the backyards of a few houses.

If you’re having trouble catching a legendary fish, take a look at our fishing guide for Season 4. You should be able to catch one if you hit a fishing hole with a Pro Fishing Rod – but this one will take a bit of persistence.

There’s a zipline network that connects Steamy Stacks and Retail Row, so you just have to ride this once and be done with it.

Apart from that, the rest of these challenges are straightforward. Of course, you’ll also need to land at Weeping, Slurpy, and Misty to get your chests, damage, and elimination. Good luck!

New esports org Gamma Gaming makes splash with Fortnite roster

A new organization, Gamma Gaming, has entered the professional Fortnite arena with some huge signings.

Published

Fortnite is, again, the driving force behind the creation of an esports organization – this time, in the European market. Gamma Gaming – established by Arsenal FC player, Sead Kolašinac – made a splash on the EU Fortnite scene by announcing the acquisition of six Fortnite players on September 27.

The announcement included some of the hottest professional free agents in the region: Th0masHD, Kami, Tschinken, and Merijn along with content creators Obitoo and Mambo.

The most noteworthy of these acquisitions is, likely, Th0masHD who qualified for the Fortnite World Cup, placed 4th in the recent Solo FNCS, won the BenjyFishy Cup, and, most recently, placed first and second in two of the FNCS Warmup competitions.

Going into the Season 4 Trios FNCS, he and his team are one of the top picks to win it all.

Gamma Gaming’s model follows that of another new organization, One Percent, which has built its foundation on the back of their professional Fortnite lineup. The young org will, undoubtedly, branch out from here, but they’re starting with solid EU Fortnite talent.

With some strong European players on their team, it will be interesting to see where these new Gamma Gaming recruits land when the FNCS competition comes around. We have a new organization to keep our eyes on.
