Fortnite ‘Legends Cinematic’ is as inspirational as it is hilarious

This Fortnite ‘Legends Cinematic’ will give you some laughs and make you feel as though you could be one of the greats.

It feels like a daunting task to become a top-tier gamer. The barrier to entry is so steep that most people won’t make it.

Fortnite helped to substantially soften that barrier. The game has turned popular streamers into household names and unknown gamers into stars.

Reddit user u/Skrubski captured the Fortnite feeling that anyone can be great and made a cinematic out of it. They paid homage to some of the biggest streamers to play Fortnite (while simultaneously teasing them) and gave viewers a feeling that it could be them, someday.

This cinematic leaves you laughing and feeling inspired. TimtheTatMan falling to his death and Ninja’s weakness being “little s**ts” and “flossing in NYC” is laugh-out-loud funny. At the same time, it lets you know that their level of stardom is attainable.

The video is told from the perspective of a random player, which gives us the indication that anyone could make it to ‘Legendary’ status if we put in the time. With enough skill, dedication, and a few lucky breaks, anyone could make it to the top of the Twitch charts.

Ninja leaves Twitch and takes his audience with him

Fortnite cinematics don’t often elicit a reaction the way that this one has. It’s funny, yes, but it’s also a positive message to gamers everywhere. Tim, Ninja, NickMercs, Dr. Disrespect, Bugha – all of them were normal gamers at one point in their life.

Do you want to make a name for yourself? Do you want to raise the trophy at the next Fortnite World Cup? You can achieve anything you want with hard work, dedication, and the right mindset.

Fortnite leak reveals new SHIELD Henchmen coming soon

New Henchmen are coming to Fortnite, pointing to the spawn island helicarrier entering Fortnite as a POI.

Fortnite Season 4 might be the most progressively evolving season of Chapter 2, so far. We’re getting the map evolution that we thought we’d get last season, this time with fan-favorite Marvel characters.

Players were split as to whether or not the Marvel crossover would be good for Fortnite. Now, five weeks in, it’s hard to argue that Season 4 isn’t the most entertaining season in the new chapter. Epic are keeping the game fresh and it’s bringing players back. There’s a reason that Ninja is playing Fortnite again, this season.

One of the map developments that hasn’t yet come to the game is a helicarrier appearing above the map. This is rumored to be the same helicarrier used as the Season 4 pregame island.

More recently, however, popular data miner, Hypex, revealed that there are unused Henchmen in the game files. These Henchmen are, reportedly, members of the Marvel Comics organization, SHIELD.

According to this leak, SHIELD is running the spawn island helicarrier as a base of operations. Another leaker, ShiinaBR, replied to Hypex’s tweet, linking these two pieces of information. His conclusion was that the SHIELD Henchmen will enter the game when the helicarrier moves over the map.

We’ve already seen several Fortnite creators like SypherPK and Ali-A make their way to the spawn island from a Battle Royale lobby. There’s a vault on this island, and they tested whether or not one of the keys that Doctor Doom or Iron Man carry will unlock it. As you might expect, their keys didn’t work.

All of this points to the idea that the current helicarrier – or spawn island – will, eventually, be a POI in Fortnite. We may have to build up to it or take a helicopter, making it one of the more exclusive places to loot. For now, all we can do is speculate – but we’ll let you know when we learn more.

Tips

This Crash Pad trick gives players free kills in competitive Fortnite

Another Fortnite Crash Pad technique has reared its head.

Published

on

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Crash Pads are the most useful item in Fortnite. You can combine them with Bouncers for ultimate mobility, use them to get into an opponent’s box, save yourself from fall damage, and – as it turns out – even more.

Just when we think that we’ve discovered all of the uses for Crash Pads, another one pops up. This new strategy is growing in popularity within the competitive Fortnite community, but is still under-utilized at the time of writing. Naturally, World Cup winner Bugha is on the cutting edge of the trick.

If you didn’t catch the strategy from the clip above, players are using Crash Pads to assassinate players above them in a stacked end-game lobby. All you need to do is make a hole in your structure, build a ramp, and throw a Crash Pad.

One of the players above you will, more than likely, fall through the broken floor and right into your lap. It’s a free refresh for your team.

This is a relatively high-level play, so you don’t need to worry about it if you’re only playing public matches. If you’re preparing for the Season 4 Trios FNCS, however, you should practice the technique and be aware that it might happen to you.

Players routinely find themselves stacked on top of one another in competitive Fortnite. I’d be surprised if we don’t see one or two of these plays in the FNCS Finals this season.

Ghost Gaming signs NA-East Fortnite pro Nanolite

Ghost Gaming adds Nanolite to their growing Fortnite roster.

Earlier in the year, it seemed like Ghost Gaming was one of the organizations divesting from professional Fortnite. Several organizations let the contracts of their Fortnite pros expire, while others were waiting in the wings to scoop them up.

Now, several months later, it seems like Ghost was only preparing to reload on their Fortnite talent. Most recently, they signed NA-East pro Nanolite. Ghost Gaming’s newest recruit has been rising the ranks, over the past year, putting together a third-place performance in the DreamHack Anaheim 2020 tournament.

Nanolite has, reportedly, earned over $38,000 from 62 events over the course of his Fortnite career. He also sits, squarely, at number 50 on the FortniteTracker NA-East Power Rankings list.

With the signing, Ghost’s Fortnite roster is surprisingly deep. They now boast Kamo, Sean, Trapped, Zarby, Nittle, Clarity, and Nanolite. We’ll have to wait and see if they’ll stay steady here or continue to add to their growing roster of Fortnite talent.

Organizations have been signing Fortnite free agents left and right. It’s clear that Fortnite isn’t going anywhere as an esport, despite the lowering of the prize pool compared to 2019. Who will be the next free agent to fall? Only time will tell.
