Several Fortnite streamers and pros have spoken out against the Hand Cannon.
Fortnite has a major problem on its hand and has created a rift with several of its well-known players.
The Hand Cannon, in its current state, has the ability to 1-shot walls and players, making it a very powerful weapon in the right hands.
This has caused the meta to shift towards using a Hand Cannon and many players have spoken up about that change.
While Fortnite is still on the top of the gaming world, a few more missteps and that could all change.
Streamer HighDistortion, who recently reached 100,000 kills in Fortnite, said he isn’t playing until the Hand Cannon is vaulted.
No FN till deagle is vaulted https://t.co/HgxXrMqjDb

FaZe Thiefs took to Twitter to let Fortnite players know the Hand Cannon and planes are both still in Fortnite.
Just a reminder to all of you that planes and deagles are still in the game.
That is all.

Counter Logic Gaming’s Wish offered words of support to those not invited to the Secret Skirmish and said they would have went insane griding the pile of deagles and planes.
To the fortnite peeps not invited to secret skirmish, go enjoy the fuck out of some other video games until we know our next tourney.
Grinding the heaping pile of deagle and planes is a no no. You’ll go insane. 👌🏽

Team Liquid’s Vivid called Fortnite boring and said every game is getting rammed by a plane or getting your wall replaced by a Hand Cannon user.
Fortnite is so boring lmfao. It's not even a battle royale. It's a "get wall replaced by my deagle or get rammed by my plane" simulator. THATS IT. EVERY GAME.

100 Thieves Parallax says the Hand Cannon needs to be put in the trash can.

72hrs says Fortnite is still his favorite game but Epic Games should take a look at the deagles and planes.
