Welcome to the first-ever Fortnite Intel reader clips of the week. Check out some members of the community and submit your clips for inclusion next week.

Here we are, folks: week 1 of the Fortnite Intel reader clips. We got a ton of submissions this week and picked some favorites to share with the rest of you.

If you want to be included in next week’s compilation, send you clips to [email protected] or DM them to @JimmyDangus on Twitter. Make sure you send a link to a YouTube, Twitter, Twitch, or Instagram video. Video files will not work.

Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of the best clips we received this week.

Outplayed

Sometimes, challenging a friend to a 1v1 is a bad idea. In this case, the player is now immortalized in a reader clips article for all to see. F’s in chat for Lirsi.

Grenade Save

This clip from @ShadowyEvil is truly inspiring. Never give up. Never accept defeat. Spam grenades and you might just come out on top.

Bold strategy, Cotton

The word “bot” gets thrown around a lot. This guy truly disserves the moniker.

Hey, Richifornia, you can thank your buddy for putting you on blast, here. He didn’t need to do you like that.

Dropshot

This clip was anonymously sent to my email, so I don’t have anyone to credit. I had to include it, though, just based on the sheer luck involved. This man dropped from height to risk his whole game for the clip and only hit for 20 damage. This could have gone very differently.

Embrace the Chaos

Sorry @Dank_Nizzle, but this might be the sloppiest clip of the week. That’s not a bad thing, though. Sometimes, you just have to embrace the chaos, start swinging and hope for the best.

Yeet

No description needed. The title says it all. Yeet on, brother. Yeet on.

It’s not a fluke

Okay, so, this guy is cracked. He sent me three videos and each one was better than any other clip I’ve seen this week. This first video shows that his sniper shot is not a fluke. The first one: maybe lucky. The second one: okay, this guy is legit. He’s not done, though. Here’s the best trickshot of the week:

Did I say “best trickshot?” Well, it’s probably more accurate to call it the most elaborate trickshot of the week. This is probably the best trickshot of the week, also from @AZCardsFort.

Sheesh. Way to make everyone else look bad. This overachiever sent me all three of these. I couldn’t leave any of them out. All I can do is hope I don’t wind up in a lobby with this guy and get styled on.

Who’s mans is this?

Looks like BenonXTC‘s buddy got DCed. The Fish Stick skin is the real highlight of this clip. It wouldn’t be nearly as funny if it was a Soccer Skin running in place.

Spray Meta

Via: ErPandex

Fortnite Chapter 2 is all about the spray meta, and ErPandex knows it. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

So, there you have it. Not a bad start for our first try. Keep the clips coming, people. If you were left out of this week’s article, check back again next week and see if you made it. Again, make sure you’re sending links to [email protected] or @JimmyDangus on Twitter.

Tell us your favorite clip in the comments, although @AZCardsFort probably took the W this week.

Epic Games

Epic delay Fortnite Season 3 & Device Event for the second time

The Device Event and Fortnite Season 3 have been delayed in the wake of nationwide protests in the US.

Epic Games have delayed Fortnite Season 3 and the Device Event for the second time. This decision comes following similar decisions from Sony and Activision, who delayed the PS5 reveal and Call of Duty season, respectively.

The team announced their decision in a blog post on June 3. The Device Event was moved from June 6 to June 15 and the new season was rescheduled for June 17.

“Recent events are a heavy reminder of ongoing injustices in society, from the denial of basic human rights to the impact of racism both overt and subtle against people of color,” they wrote in their blog post. “We’re acutely aware of the pain our friends, families, team members, players, and communities are experiencing.”

“The team is eager to move Fortnite forward, but we need to balance the Season 3 launch with time for the team to focus on themselves, their families, and their communities,” the post continued.

“The live event The Device will be delayed to Monday, June 15, and the Season 3 launch delayed to Wednesday, June 17. We know this delay comes on the heels of another one, and we appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times.”

Fortnite fans are disappointed by the news, but it was not unexpected. As we said, other publishers and studios have made similar decisions in the wake of recent real-world events.

The exact timing of the Device Event is still up in the air, as it’s now set to take place on a Monday rather than a Saturday. We’ll keep you posted with more news about Fortnite Season 3 as it comes.

Concepts

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

(0:33 for mobile viewers)

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.
