Chap vs. Tfue rivalry getting personal ahead of FNCS Finals

The teams of Av/Chap and Tfue/Scoped are at each other’s throats ahead of the Heat 1 matchup in the FNCS Finals.



The teams of Av/Chap and Tfue/Scoped are at each other’s throats ahead of the Heat 1 matchup in the FNCS Finals.

Fortnite has had a competitive scene since the game catapulted to number-one on Twitch. Keemstar and UMG Gaming seized the opportunity and created Friday Fortnite, which helped launch the careers of people like SypherPK, Tfue, Cloakzy, and even NickMercs.

We’ve come a long way since then, and the professional community has gone through some drastic changes. Now, people like Nate Hill, Funk, Chap, and Tfue are some of the only OG competitive players left standing.

The latter two, Chap and Tfue, and revitalizing excitement for competitive Fortnite through their rivalry. The teams of Tfue/Scoped and Chap/Av are both landing at The Grotto and neither one of them is blinking. They’re on a crash course for the FNCS finals, and all eyes will be on heat one.

The rivalry started during the FNCS qualifiers but has spilled over into pro scrims and Cash Cups. Chap and Av got the better of Tfue and Scoped in the last FNCS competition, but have been having a rough time, since then.

Things came to a head between the two during a Daily Cash Cup, where Chap and Av repeatedly contested Tfue and Scoped at The Grotto.

Before all of this, the rivalry seemed to be relatively civil. Both streamers were benefiting off of the attention – Chap even put the Tfue battle in his title.

Apparently, as you’ll see in the video, Chap took exception to a Tfue retweet that accused Chap and Av of teaming with another Grotto team to eliminate Tfue and Scoped.

“That guy was friends with a lot of people he screwed over,” Chap said in response to a viewer who said that he and Tfue used to be friends. “I basically stopped liking him the second he was dumb enough to retweet a tweet saying that I was teaming and should get banned.”

“There’s 0% chance I leave Grotto,” Chap continued. “Worst-case scenario, I just play to full-grief, you know? Just go next FNCS.”

“Ya, for real, f**k Chap,” Tfue fired back. “Why the f**k are those guys griefing our Cash Cup? Like, F**k off. They suck.”

Things are certainly heating up on the rivalry front. Chap appears to be getting personal, while Tfue remains focused on in-game trash talk.

We might be entering the “no love lost” portion of the rivalry. All of this seemed pretty lighthearted before yesterday. Now, it seems like they’re out for blood. Chap even retweeted an UnknownxArmy Tweet – calling out Tfue for switching accounts to reset his Cash Cup progress.

We don’t know for sure, but early reports have it that both teams are in heat 1 of the FNCS Finals. Chap has mentioned it on-stream and both Tfue and Scoped have confirmed that they’re in the first heat.

All eyes will be on them tomorrow afternoon. We don’t need an official cast for this one. We’ll be watching Tfue, Scoped, Chap, and Av.


Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.



Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite leaked skins & cosmetics from v15.50 update



Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.



Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Newly-added Exotics (Update)

February 24 Exotic Shuffle (Update)

On February 24, Epic shuffled some of the original and new Exotic weapon locations, giving them to new NPCs across the Fortnite map. The Storm Scout Sniper, Nighthawk Revolver, and Hop Rock Dualies now have new homes. You can view them on the map, below.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic shuffle the locations once again, so we’ll update this map and article if we see any more changes.
