Fortnite player reveals Tfue’s Llama-spotting secret

Want to spot llamas in Fortnite like Tfue? Here’s how he does it.

Tfue has been one of the best llama spotters in the game for a long time. His llama-spotting abilities date back to before Chapter 2. He was pinging llamas from the Battle Bus on the old map with the same accuracy that he sees them on the new one.

A lot of Tfue’s viewers wonder how he’s able to identify so many llamas from so far away. Some fans even think the streamer is using an exploit to see the colorful pinatas.

Those who look deeper into Tfue’s eagle-eyed ways know that his colorblind settings play a role. He uses the Duetronope setting, which helps llamas stand out. Nickmercs was stunned when he finally figured this out.

This colorblind setting helps, but those who have tried it, themselves, notice that spotting llamas from hundreds of meters away isn’t as easy as it looks. Reddit user u/TommyTwelkMeyers explained all of the settings you need to use if you want to spot llamas like the master.

As he stated in his post, render distance plays a large role in spotting llamas. “Just like supply drops, Llamas are not limited by Render Distance,” he wrote. “If I’m looking at a hill cross-map, I will not have trees are grass rendered in. It is completely empty and only a pink group of pixels are visible and easy to see.”

“Tfue used this same ‘visual exploit’ and it is not visual to us because of down-scaled resolution,” he continued. “The 4 in the back are hard to see seeing that they are only around 3 pixels each but in-game you are easily able to see them due to the contrast.”

The gist is that Tfue is able to see these llamas on his screen, even though they aren’t visible to his audience, most of the time. The trick is to keep your graphics on the lowest setting so fewer visuals render-in and the start of the game. When you combine this with the Duetronope colorblind setting, it makes spotting llamas a whole lot easier.

This may take some practice, but identifying llamas gets easier once you know what to look for. Keep an eye out for those pink and blue dots on your screen. They indicate that there’s a llama in the distance.

Hopefully, this trick helps you secure some llamas and gives you a competitive edge against your opponents. Tfue isn’t the only elite llama spotter in Fortnite.

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.

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.”

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.

Epic Games & Loserfruit postpone her Fortnite Icon Series skin

Streamer, Loserfruit, has announced that she and Epic have decided to postpone the release of her Icon Series Fortnite skin.

The entire world is reeling in the wake of the protests and demonstrations surrounding the murder of George Floyd. There are, certainly, more important things going on than Fortnite, but that’s what we’re here to talk about.

Many fans are speculating that Epic will add a further delay to Season 3, following the announced delays of the PS5 new Call of Duty Season. Epic have yet to speak out on this topic, so we should expect the event to take place on June 6 until we hear otherwise.

One thing that has been delayed is the newest addition to the Fortnite Icon Series. Leaks pointed to a Loserfruit skin hitting the Item Shop this week. The streamer even posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story, signaling that the skin would be released on June 3.

Loserfruit logged onto her stream on June 3 and to update her fans and explain why her Icon Series skin wouldn’t be in the shop. “Me and Epic decided it wasn’t the right time to release the skin, this week,” she said.

“I think you guys know from leaks,” the streamer chuckled, “that it was meant to come out on the third. So we decided to wait.”

The delay is an understandable one for several reasons. Getting your own skin in a video game is a big deal, and Loserfruit would undoubtedly feel guilty for celebrating her accomplishments in a time like this. As we said, there are far more important things happening than anything related to Fortnite.

We can expect to see the skin hit the Item Shop within the next couple of weeks. We still have no news on whether or not Season 3 will be released as planned. We’ll keep you updated on all of these topics as more information comes out.

Tfue addresses rumors that he quit Fortnite

Tfue addresses rumors that he quit Fortnite and returns with, what could be, a God-tier trio.

Tfue has unquestionably been the biggest Fortnite streamer on Twitch since Ninja left. He’s stuck with the game for years, and only recently started flirting with the idea of moving on.

Tfue floated a move to Warzone following the most recent FNCS Invitational. He seemed to get fed up with aim assist and needed a break from the game. He tweeted a cryptic message before switching his streams to Warzone for an extended period.

This led many fairweather Tfue fans to suggest that the longtime pro and streamer was officially quitting the game. He seems to be loving Warzone and has reunited with his old duo partner and friend, Cloakzy.

On May 20, Tfue took to Twitter to clarify that he wasn’t quitting Fortnite. “No I didn’t quit Fortnite,” he wrote on Twitter. “I just think the game is super unfair atm and wanted to take a break.”

In fact, it looks like Tfue has his sights set on a return to Fortnite for a Trios competition. He, Scoped, and new teammate, Innocents, showed-out during a recent bout of pro scrimmages. Scoped, as usual, showed that he’s one of the best Fortnite players in the world with a massive clutch at the end of a match.

Sometimes, we all need time away from a game in order to enjoy it more. It seems like Tfue is getting a much-needed break from Fortnite. Judging by his recent streams, he’s been considerably more positive towards the game when he does play.

It will likely take a new format and some additional time away for Tfue to come back to Fortnite full-time. He may never come back, and instead, focus on a variety of titles or competing in a different game. Only time will tell.
