FaZe Clan’s Tfue is not happy with Fortnite’s sniper rifles

Published

on

FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney is not a fan of Fortnite professional players using sniper rifles in-game.

Much has been made about the game’s current set of sniper rifles – most notably, the Heavy Sniper Rifle.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle, which has been under plenty of criticism recently, has the ability to change games as it can bring down structures with a single shot and wipe out players with its incredible 150 damage.

Some players want the gun nerfed, or even removed from the game and placed in the vault.

Recently, Epic Games even had to step in and respond to calls for the gun to be nerfed. Now, Tfue has added to that debate during a recent stream with his feelings about the weapons.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle has caused plenty of debate between players.

During the stream, Tfue revealed his feelings about the sniper rifles and stated what changes he’d make to them if he had the power to make significant changes.

The streamer had been clipped as saying: “Sniping is all luck, dude. That’s why I don’t snipe – sniping takes zero skill. I hate snipers bro, I think they should remove all of them. Literally, the majority of the time I die is just snipers – some bot just hits one lucky headshot.”

During a later stream, the pro explained what he meant with his comments in the first clip, saying that sniper rifles “definitely belong in Fortnite” but they “don’t belong in competitive.”

While it remains to be seen if any other pro players echo Tfue’s comments, he does pick up on some points that could improve Fortnite’s competitive scene in the future.

Other competitive games, such as Call of Duty, have agreements between players where some weapons and items are banned from play – even if they are available in the normal multiplayer side of the game.

While plenty of fans routinely criticise those pros choices in other titles, the removals do seem to create a more balanced playing field, even if it’s not completely level and sound, with a more positive experience for players.

Do you think snipers should be removed from Fortnite’s esports scene? Let us know in the comments below.

XP Coins have returned to Fortnite Season 5. Here’s where to find all of them as of Season 5 Week 7.

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!

How to disable pre-edits in Fortnite

After over a year of fan requests, Epic have added a ‘disable pre-edit’ option to Fortnite. Here’s where you can find it.

Published

In v15.20, Epic Games added a much-requested setting to Fortnite: ‘disable pre-edits.’ Here’s how it works and how to select it.

Finally, after years of Reddit threads, Twitter posts, and pro players begging, Epic added a ‘disable pre-edit’ setting to Fortnite.

Here’s everything you need to know about the new setting, including how it works and where to find it.

What does ‘pre-editing’ mean?

Pre-editing refers to the ability to edit a structure before placing it. The most popular use of pre-edits throughout Fortnite history was a cone/ramp edit when controller players had to use Combat Pro.

Now, however, very few players use pre-edits. Instead, pre-edits offer an obstacle, as they’re almost always completed by mistake. Of course, there are still some niche applications for pre-edits, but most players wanted Epic to add an option to disable these edits.

How to disable pre-edits

You can find the new option under the settings tab (cog wheel) in the start menu. Scroll down to the “Building” section, and you’ll see four options. One of them is the new “Disable Pre-Edit Option.”

If you turn this off, you’ll no longer be able to edit structures before placing them – good news for the bulk of the Fortnite community.

If may have taken Epic years to finally add this option, but it’s finally here. Next stop, an FoV slider!
