Fortnite coach responds to Mongraal stream sniping allegations

A few weeks ago, we saw allegations arise that Mongraal and his squad used their coach, DestinysJesus, to stream snipe for them. The FaZe coach has responded.

On November 27, Dexerto obtained an exclusive video that appeared to show Mongraal and his squad of BenjyFishy, Wolfiez, and Nayte stream sniping with the help of their coach, DestinysJesus. This took place during one of the final weeks of the FNCS EU qualifiers.

In the video, you can hear the team discussing the landing spot of an enemy squad. Destiny told Mongraal and crew that the contesting team wasn’t the same as the one that they were facing in earlier matches. He also informed the team that the aforementioned squad had landed in Pleasant Park – suggesting that he was watching a stream.

To make matters more suspicious, the squad competed off-stream during these qualifiers. The above video was allegedly taken from a Mongraal upload, which was later trimmed to exclude this clip.

It would’ve been a shame to see Mongraal and company disqualified from the FNCS – even if this interaction was a nefarious as it seemed. The squad had already qualified on-stream several times; meaning the alleged stream sniping made little difference.

Still, a lot of competitive Fortnite fans were wondering why this issue wasn’t a bigger deal. The community still hasn’t gotten over the cheating of XXiF and Ronaldo during the World Cup qualifiers, and stream sniping is an equally damning allegation.

Everyone on the team seemed to ignore these allegations – which was a smart move. No one spoke about what happened until DestinysJesus tweeted the results of the FNCS EU Grand Finals. Mongraal, BenjyFishy, Wolfiez, and Nayte placed second in the region.

According to Destiny, Epic investigated the issue and deemed that no action was necessary. Fans seem to be split, here. On one hand, this is one of the most popular squads in the EU. On the other, we’ve seen fellow FaZe Member Nate Hill suspended for less.

The event is now in the rearview mirror, so there’s no point in harping on the stream sniping allegations. Let’s just hope that Epic makes an explicit rule one way or the other about coaching in future Fortnite tournaments.


How to earn the free Fortnite Crew emote in Season 5

Epic Games are offering players who sign up for the Fortnite Crew membership a free, exclusive emote for a limited time.



Monthly Crew Pack leaked image

Epic Games is offering players a free emote to go with their Fortnite Crew membership in Fortnite Season 5.

The Fortnite Crew membership is an interesting idea. Players can sign up for the system for $11.99 per month. In return, they receive the Battle Pass, an exclusive cosmetic set, and 1,000 V-Bucks to use as they please.

January 2021 was the second month of the Crew system, and it wasn’t without its speed bumps. Some players logged in on January 1 to see that their Green Arrow skin pack was nowhere to be found.

Even more players had to wait over 2 weeks to receive their V-Bucks for the month. The system is still new, but it’s clear that Epic have some polishing to do.

As a way to throw Fortnite Crew members a bone, Epic are offering a free “Members Only” emote to anyone who signs up for the Crew pack.

You need to sign up for a Fortnite Crew membership and log into Fortnite before February 15. This timing means that non-members can wait and see what the February cosmetic pack holds before committing.

The Crew membership, when it’s working, is a good deal for dedicated Fortnite players who want to get the most bang for their buck. An exclusive skin, pickaxe, back bling, and 1,000 V-Bucks is well worth the $11.99 price tag.

We’ll let you know when we learn more about the February Fortnite Crew pack. Until then, enjoy Season 5.

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!
