Fortnite’s prize duo from FaZe Clan, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, showed the world how to properly counter the Baller with a unique combination.
Tfue and Cloak are known to be one of the best duos in competitive Fortnite, especially since they won the Fortnite Fall Skirmish at TwitchCon 2018.
The Baller vehicle was added into Fortnite during Season 8, which seemingly replaced the vaulted X4-Stormwing plane.
The vehicle is a spherical ball where players can sit inside while rolling around the map, along with the Grappler mounted to the front to make rotations seamlessly simple.
Since the Baller was added into Fortnite, players have been using the vehicle to remain safe until the end game.
Tons of streamers have complained how the new meta is heavily focused on the Baller and the advantages it grants players.
Tfue and Cloak were participating during the Luxe Cup finals during a stream on March 31 when they encountered the last two players in the game.
The duo was posted in Tilted Towers when they noticed that the remaining players were hidden behind brick walls, where they were safely sitting next to a pair of Ballers.
The pair organized a play where Cloak would shoot down the walls with a Rocket Launcher while Tfue launched a Boogie Bomb at their feet.
The remaining players were then surprised by the Boogie
Once a Boogie Bomb is tossed at a player within the Baller, they will be forced outside of the protective barrier.
FaZe Clan’s prized duo quickly eliminated the final two players for a Victory Royale.
“That’s how you fucking do it right there boys. Get your fucking notepads out.” Tfue exclaimed as he celebrated the win with his duo.
Players can not expect to be able to pick up a Rocket Launcher and Boogie Bomb due to Fortnite’s RNG, but this is one of the more impressive counters to the Baller that we have seen.

Fortnite v21.20 early patch notes: Indiana Jones, No Sweat Summer, Luke Skywalker skin, more
Fortnite v21.20 is right around the corner. From Indiana Jones to new content for the 2022 No Sweat Summer event, there’s a lot to expect.
Fortnite is all set to release the 21.20 update on July 5, 2022. Indiana Jones will finally become available in the Battle Pass, No Sweat Summer content will arrive in Battle Royale modes, and as usual, the Reality Tree will continue to grow.
The community has sky-scraping expectations from Fortnite v21.20. Even though map changes have been frequent and brilliant in Chapter 3 Season 3, the No Sweat Summer event and the XP system (in terms of more opportunities to earn XP) certainly need improvement.
Here’s everything players can expect in the second major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
Fortnite Reality Tree to affect Condo Canyon, Sleepy Sound, and Temple Bloom in v21.10
First and foremost, the Reality Tree will reach major locations like Sleepy Sound. Loopers have discovered a new set of roots near Shifty Shafts and they’re most likely heading towards Sleepy.
Another location where we will see the influence of the Reality Tree is Condo Canyon. Interestingly, leakers have already revealed the upcoming themes. Like Butter Bloom and Logjam Lotus, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon will have recurring themes which include:
- Coral Castle
- Neo Tillted for Sleepy Sound and Lazy Lagoon for Condo Canyon
There’s a Reality Root near the Temple Bloom landmark as well. HYPEX has revealed that one of the themes in Temple Bloom is codenamed The Tower in the files, and that’s the only information we have for now.
There’s a possibility that v21.20 only focuses on Condo Canyon and Sleepy Sound as the developers are yet to add the updated version of Temple Bloom in the files.
New Indiana Jones skin and temple to arrive in Fortnite v21.20
Indiana Jones is the secret skin in the Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass. It cannot be unlocked at the moment, and will be available from July 7, 2022. Loopers who own the Battle Pass wil have to complete special quests to unlock the cosmetics which include:
- Indiana Jones outfit
- Indiana Jones Banner Icon
- Raider’s Relics Harvesting Tool
- Rogue Archaology Wrap
- Expedition Bag Back Bling
It is worth noting that these are the cosmetics on Page 1. These will not only become unlockable with v21.20, but you’ll also be able to get a look at the next page.
Even though this might be a stretch, but many players believe that Indiana Jones will get his own spawn location. The aforementioned Temple Bloom POI could turn into a temple dedicated for the Indiana Jones boss/NPC. However, readers must take this claim with a huge grain of salt.
New No Sweat Summer content coming to Fortnite Battle Royale
The Island Hopper quests were decent, but players were disappointed to see them as the only ‘summer event’ content. However, leakers like iFireMonkey and Epic Games itself have claimed that more summer content is coming.
NPcs like Unpeely, Summer Drift, and Boardwalk Ruby, and vehicles like Surfboards will return to BR modes. Moreover, you can look forward to completing summer-themed quests in Battle Royale that should grant XP and free cosmetics.
Battle Royale content will certainly help in making No Sweat Summer 2022 one of the best summer events in Fortnite’s history.
Luke Skywalker NPC
Epic Games has released a ton of Star-Wars content in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 which includes Darth Vader as a boss and his skin in the Battle Pass as a tier 100 reward. HYPEX has disclosed that there’s a Lightsaber in the files for a Luke NPC.
Based on the leak, it is safe to assume that Luke Skywalker will be released as an NPC and a skin, like this father. However, it is uncertain if he’ll be a part of the upcoming update.
Last but not least, weekly quests for Week 5/ Week 6 and Vibin’ quests will be added to files with Fortnite v21.20. There aren’t any solid leaks regarding weapons as we’ve already received three new weapons (Two-Shot shotgun, Hammer AR, and DMR) this season.
Fortnite v21.30 will release on July 19, 2022 following which Epic Games will take a summer break that will take place between July 24 and August 12.
Fortnite v21.20 update to introduce new No Sweat Summer challenges, NPCs, and skins
Fortnite will release the v21.20 update on July 5, 2022 and players can look forward to enjoying some new No Sweat Summer content in it.
After hyping up the No Sweat Summer event, Fortnite simply released some Creative challenges for XP. However, leaks suggest that new NPCs, cosmetics, and summer-themed challenges will arrive soon.
Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is all about Vibin’ and nothing suits this theme better than a humming summer event. However, No Sweat Summer 2022 has only revolved around the Firework Flare Gun and six Creative XP challenges so far.
It is evident that the player base isn’t satisfied with this year’s No Sweat Summer event. Fortunately, Epic Games itself teased more summer content and it should most likely be a part of the v21.20 or the v21.30 updates.
Fortnite promises ‘more summer vibes’ in a post about Island Hopper quests
Leaker iFireMonkey noticed that Epic Games’ official post about the Island Hopper quests states:
“Get vibin’ this summer in style! Want more summer vibes? No sweat, more summer is coming. Stay tuned for more.”
Clearly, Island Hopper quests aren’t the end of No Sweat Summer in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3. However, for now, not a lot is known about the upcoming content.
Leakers have revealed that Epic Games will at least release Boardwalk Ruby, Summer Drift, and Unpeely as NPCs on the island. While the return of these fan favorites will be great, the arrival of Midsummer Midas and Summer Meowscles will be like icing on the cake.
iFireMonkey reported that the Battle Royale modes will soon have summer-themed challenges as well. It is worth noting that the developers began working on Surfboards with Chapter 3 Season 3, and they will also return soon.
When will Fortnite No Sweat Summer event 2022 begin?
Ideally, Fortnite should release the aforementioned content with v21.20 which is expected to release on July 5, 2022. Having said that, it is important to consider that Epic Games’ employees will be taking a summer break from July 24 to August 12.
Fortnite v21.30 should release ahead of this break on July 19, 2022. Because Epic Games won’t be able to roll out hotfixes or other things during the break, iFireMonkey believes that the 21.30 patch will be the most content-loaded update this season.
All in all, loopers can certainly keep their hopes high for the No Sweat Summer event in 2022. While NPCs, challenges, and vehicles have been confirmed by leakers, Epic Games never misses an opportunity to capitalize on event-based cosmetics.
To be fair, the Creative maps for Island Hopper quests are fairly entertaining and a fresh breath of air from the sweaty Battle Royale modes.
Fortnite pro Cented kicked out of FaZe Clan for using hate speech
Fortnite pro Cented is no longer a part of FaZe clan. He was caught saying a racial slur on stream, and has parted ways with the organization.
FaZe Clan has removed Cented from their Fortnite roster after the pro player used a racial slur on a livestream. Here’s what’s next for the aspiring Esports athlete.
When Evan ‘Cented’ Barron joined FaZe clan in March 2021, fans worldwide had sky-scraping expectations from him. To be fair, he did gain a ton of followers across Twitch and Twitter and significantly improved his skills as a pro.
However, the former FNCS finalist and Cash Cups winner has been kicked out by FaZe Clan for using hate speech.
Why did FaZe Clan permanently remove Fortnite pro Cented?
While playing Fortnite recently, Cented joined Twitch streamer nothellfire1’s party and wasted no time in dropping a racial slur. It seems like he was not aware that nothellfire1 was live on Twitch.
This was followed by FaZe immediately announcing Cented’s permanent removal from the clan for using hate speech. The post clearly mentioned how the Esports org is constantly evolving and there is no room for racial slurs/discriminatory language.
Soon after, Cented himself admitted to using the slur on stream and claimed that he should’ve known better. The streamer apologized to the Fortnite community and acknowledged his immaturity and ignorance.
He said, “Somewhere along the way I let my ego get the best of me.”
Fortnite community reacts to FaZe Clan removing Cented
While some players are shocked that FaZe has parted ways with Cented instead of giving him sensitivity training, others like prominent leaker HYPEX did not hold back from making him aware of his mistake.
The mixed response from the Fortnite community is understandable, to say the least. It is fair for people to expect organizations to take rehabilitative measures, and it is equally justified for others to expect more maturity from adults like Cented.
This isn’t the first time that Cented has faced consequences for his blunt behavior. Back in June 2021, Epic Games warned him for abusing a young player and recklessly ranting about the Battle Royale game on Twitter.
Incidents like the one mentioned above have played a major role in decaying the image of Fortnite’s competitive community. Rather than being role models, the pros are infamous for being toxic and disrespectful.
