FaZe H1ghSky1 releases apology video for lying about his age

Published

on

FaZe H1ghSky1 was recently caught up in a scandal about his age when the Tfue lawsuit came out. Following the revelations that he was underage to compete and stream, Twitch banned his account.

H1ghSky1 was recruited by FaZe Clan when he was only 11 years old. The official age required for competing in Fortnite and streaming on Twitch is 13 years.

In an apology video on June 6, H1ghSky1 gave his partial regrets for his actions. Keep in mind that the person responsible for his actions (in part) are his parents, not himself due to his age.

FaZe H1ghSky1 apologizes for his actions

Recently, Twitch banned FaZe H1ghSky1’s accounts due to his age. The young player is only 12 years of age at the moment and Twitch requires 13 years of age of streaming.

The player went on to make an apology video for the community, expressing his reasons for breaking the rules.

As you heard, the young player did not necessarily regret his actions, but rather wanted to justify them. We do not blame him for his tact…he is only 12 years old.

In the video, you can hear the player’s mother speaking to him as he tries to get his message across. Naturally, she helped the player prepare the statement, but H1ghSky1 did a good job in delivering the response.

“I had to lie” said H1ghSky1 “I didn’t want to wait two more years.”

FaZe Clan recruited H1ghSky1 when he was only 11

This is completely understandable sentiment, but it does not excuse the rule breaking. We do not suspect that Twitch will lift the ban until the player is 13 or older. They may punish him for lying by extending the ban until an older age.

While H1ghSky1 is the direct culprit, the real dirt is in his parents’ hands and those of FaZe Clan. Both parties should have known and reviewed Fortnite & Twitch guidelines before letting the player join and start streaming.

In the video, H1ghSky1’s mother can even be heard making matters worse by trying to justify the situation. “You are my genius” she says after the player finishes his statement.

It’s unfortunate that the player’s world will be shaken by the ban, but rules must be followed for the safety of young gamers. We would argue that telling your child that they are a ‘genius’ for breaking effective rules isn’t a smart route for parenting a child.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes: Hop Rock Dualies, New & Unvaulted weapons

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes.

Fortnite v15.20 update pistols

Epic Games have rolled out Fortnite patch v15.20, with a whole host of changes. While official patch notes are hard to come by these days, we’ve rounded up all of the new content.

The last few weeks in Fortnite have went by without many big tweaks to the gameplay experience, and certainly a lack of new skins and cosmetics compared to times gone by.

However, a whole host of new outfits have been leaked and that’s just the tip of the iceberg for this weekly update. A new Predator crossover has also been uncovered by dataminers, meaning Predator could soon arrive in-game – with a new ship, banner, and spray leaked.

Those are, of course, unconfirmed changes though, so let’s take a look at everything we’re certain of.

Fortnite v15.20 patch notes

Hop Rock Dualies

A new set of dual pistols have arrived in Fortnite, as seen below in a tweet from VastBlast.

New & Unvaulted weapons/items

There’s four new weapons and items coming into the loot pool (well, unvaulted as well) – seen below. This was also confirmed by VastBlast.

  • Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
  • Rare Tactical Assault Rifle (All Rarities)
  • Lever Action Shotgun
  • Uncommon Snowy Flopper

At first, the leaker thought this Sawed Shotgun was going to be headed solely for Save the World, but it’s since been confirmed to be part of the update.

Pre-edit changes

Some adjustments have been made to the Pre-Edits Option. Now, with ‘Disable Pre-Edits On,’ all player-built structures can’t be edited until they’re placed.

Fortnite x Predator crossover leaked: First look at ship, spray & banner

Published

Fortnite predator

Fortnite has been adding a number of hunters since The Mandalorian first landed on the island, and it looks like Predator might be next – if leaks are accurate.

The game has seen some insane crossovers in the last year or two, including those from the DC Comics, Marvel and Star Wars universes.

Well, next on that list might be one of the deadliest extraterrestrial attackers.

On January 13, following the v15.20 update, dataminer Lucas7Yoshi revealed a new ‘Nightmare Ship’ leak for Fortnite.

As you can see, this is the ship of Predator, from the movie series that started in 1987.

Fortnite Predator ship, spray & banner leaked

Not only that, but VastBlast has doubled down on that with a new spray leak, which clearly shows Predator is on the way in some shape or form.

Based on the arrival of Mando in his Star Wars ship, we can likely expect to see Predator join the action soon as a boss on the map – just like other NPCs that have been added during the season.

Once we have more information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins

A number of brand new Fortnite skins and cosmetics have leaked following the v15.20 update in Epic Games’ battle royale title.

The game has undergone some huge changes during the course of Season 5, with The Mandalorian crossover seeing more outfits from the world of Star Wars arrive in the Fortnite Item Shop and Battle Pass rewards.

Now, however, even more are set to be added to the game after the January 13 content refresh.

The weekly update has shaken things up once again, so let’s take a look at all of the exciting skins and cosmetics to have leaked so far.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked skins

Confirmed by leaker Lucas7Yoshi, there’s three skins included in the patch. When they will be released, however, is unconfirmed at the time of writing.

Fortnite v15.20 leaked cosmetics

Aside from those three skins – named Ruby Shadows, Orin, and Tess – a plethora of cosmetics we’ve never seen before have been leaked as well.

Lucas7Yoshi revealed the following graphic just moments after the patch went live…

The dataminer also revealed, as seen in the tweet below, that two other gliders are heading into the game as well.

Two Bundles leaked

Last, but certainly not least, two skin bundles have also been uncovered by the dataminer – seen below.

These will be called the Tess bundle and MACHINIST MINA pack.

So, which skin will you be grabbing from this new set – or even cosmetic? Let us know!

If more are released by other leakers, we’ll be the first to let you know.
