Child streams Fortnite to raise money for father’s cancer treatment

Published

on

ZylTV, a young Fortnite player, has been streaming for over 10 hours a day in order to help raise money for his father’s cancer treatment. So far, he has raised over $13,000 and has gained quite the online following.

There are several types of charity streams that are held on Twitch for different organizations and reasons but rarely do we see a stream being held for such a selfless act.

The child streamer ZylTV began streaming on Twitch at the beginning of July in order to help raise funds to help with this father’s cancer treatment.

ZylTV has raised over $13,000 for his dad, who was diagnosed with stage three cancer.

Since he began streaming, the young man has streamed for ten hours a day which has helped him reach close to 20,000 Twitch followers.

What makes this story even more heartwarming is that two Fortnite personalities, Xxif and Ronaldo, have decided to pay for Zyl and his father to fly to New York to attend the Fortnite World Cup.

Xxif and Ronaldo were previously on Rise Nation as Fortnite competitive players but were removed due to accusations of cheating during the Fortnite World Cup Online Opens.

Zyl had his father sit down at his set up and told him about the money raised and trip to New York which created this viral clip:

Other Fortnite personalities have donated to Zyl’s cause like FaZe Megga, Misfits Clix, and Snood.

With the community usually revolving around negative feedback towards Epic or online beef, it’s nice to be refreshed with an act of wholesome kindness.

We wish nothing but good luck to Zyl and his father in their fight.

Fortnite leak teases return of Star Wars Lightsabers

The Star Wars Lightsabers could make a return to Fortnite in the near future according to a notable data miner.

A Fortnite data miner has reported that Epic Games readded the Star Wars Lightsabers into Fortnite’s files after the v19.10 update.

Fortnite has held quite a few Star Wars crossovers, but none as ambitious as the live event in Chapter 2 Season 1. This introduced Lightsaber’s into the loot pool for a short period of time.

They were also available for an even shorter period of time from May 2nd – 5th during Chapter 2 Season 2. Since then, players have eagerly awaited their return.

Now, a Fortnite data miner thinks Lightsabers could return to Fortnite sometime soon due to a change in the game’s files.

Lightsabers may return to Fortnite

Epic Games removes weapon and item data from the files when that item isn’t in use. And when the data is readded to the files, it’s a good indicator players will see their return soon.

Fortnite data miner FN_Assist recently discovered that the data for Lightsabers was added after the most recent update. In a tweet, FN_Assist outlines all of the data that was readded.

They claim that this could mean one of two things. Either Star Wars Lightsabers will return to Fortnite in the near future. Or Epic is working on a weapon based on the lightsaber’s pre-existing mechanics.

If Lightsabers are added to Fortnite, we can expect it to accompany a return of skins and maybe some other Star Wars announcement.

Epic Games usually adds crossover content to promote whoever they are collaborating with. Whether it be a new movie or TV series, the Lightsabers could be used as a promotional tool for new Star Wars content.

If you’re wanting to switch up your diet in Fortnite, you can use the Pizza Party item to gain shield and fill your stomach.

One of Fortnite’s mascots is Tomatohead who is also the mascot for the fictional restaurant Pizza Pit. This is a POI that has appeared in Fortnite for several seasons.

It’s one of the many fictional restaurants that have appeared in-game along with Durrr Burger, Sitcks, and Butter Barn.

However, players haven’t been able to enjoy any of the food from these restaurants until now. Pizza Pit’s ovens are on and players can finally enjoy eight slices of cheesy goodness.

The Pizza Party is a pizza box containing eight slices of pizza. In addition to cheese and sauce, each slice is topped with a Shield Mushroom that restores 50 shield.

Each box has 8 slices, but each slice can only get players up to 50 shield similar to minis. Players can find Pizza Party boxes in the normal loot pool.

As well, players can purchase a Pizza Box for 50 gold from the Tomatohead NPC. He is located in Tilted Tower, and he only has 4 Pizza Boxes in stock.

According to Hypex, the Pizza Party box will be added to Fortnite on Tuesday, January 25.

For a measly 200 gold, players can pick up 1,600 shield. However, we don’t know how long it takes to eat a slice. And this would also require players to give up two item slots.
