Cented calls for Epic to investigate pros using “soft aim” hacks

Fortnite pro, Cented, called on Epic Games to investigate and ban pro players who are using “soft aim” hacks.



Cheating always seems to be a topic in the Fortnite scene – whether pros are being accused of using hacks, macros, or only some light teaming. There isn’t a tournament that goes by that doesn’t have one pro or another come out with a cheating allegation.

Fortnite opened the door to an entire new breed of pro players. The online solo competitions allowed anyone to compete, make a name for themselves, and rack-up hundreds of thousands of dollars in earnings.

As we saw with people like Kquid and SerpentAU, this meant that players were able to make a name for themselves while cheating. Specifically, Kquid showed us that even some talented players aren’t above cheating to gain an advantage.

We’ve heard a ton of accusations levied at different pros in the community – both named and unnamed. After the SerpentAU debacle, multiple pros came out and talked about the rampant use of Macros that pros allegedly use for double-movement. Zayt even called out Tfue by name on Twitter and in a statement to us.

On July 30, Fortnite YouTuber ThatDenverGuy posted a news recap video of the day’s happenings. In the video, he covered a couple of tweets show pro players calling out others in the community for cheating. The tweet that sparked his and our interest was from Cented, who called on Epic to investigate players using “soft aim” hacks to help them hit their shots.

This is far from the first time that we’ve heard about cheating at the highest levels of the Fortnite community, and it probably won’t be the last. Fellow pro, Yung Calc, also posted a tweet that suggested pros could be cheating. “Just joined a discord where literal hacks are being sold, what if there are pros actually hacking?” he wrote.

We reached out to Calc and Cented for clarification on these tweets and neither has responded at the time of writing. To be fair, they’re both playing in the Bugha Cup for four hours and probably aren’t checking their Twitter DMs. We spoke with Denver who also sent out some DMs, however, and he never heard back from the players in question.

There’s a chance that there might be some mutually-assured destruction at play, here. If a large number of pros use some sort of cheats or are good friends with other players who do, they may never be able to name names without implicating themselves or their friends. This is, of course, only speculation and we have no concrete facts supporting the idea.

This isn’t the last that we’ve heard of this story. We’re digging into it more, as is Denver. We’ll likely have some more information for you on the topic tomorrow or next week, so stay tuned.

There seems to be something brewing under the surface, here. We may never fully get to the bottom of it, but we’ll try.


Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenge guide

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



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.



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.

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.



Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.
