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.

SypherPK predicts the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 after Season 5

Fortnite Season 5 still has a month left, but streamer SypherPK thinks that Season 6 may not come. Instead, he thinks it will be Chapter 3.

Fortnite Season 5 still has more than a month left, but streamer and YouTuber SypherPK is predicting that the next season will be a part of Chapter 3.

We’re into the back half of Fortnite Season 5, but it’s proving to be one of the longest seasons of Fortnite. This isn’t unusual, as holiday seasons are often longer than normal seasons.

Chapter 2 has featured longer seasons than Chapter 1 did, in general, with the first two season combining to last for nearly a year.

For this reason – along with a few plot points – Fortnite streamer and YouTuber SypherPK is predicting that the next Fortnite season will be Chapter 3 Season 1 rather than Chapter 2 Season 6.

Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass

In a video uploaded to his YouTube channel, Sypher explained that if Chapter 2 lasted 10 seasons, it would bring us to 2023 before a new chapter began.

“Chapter 1 – the old map – took about 24 months to complete. Chapter 2, on the other hand, is already on 18 months. If we go through all the rest of the seasons until X, we’ll be on this chapter until 2023,” Sypher explained. “I feel like that’s a very long time. It could make things boring without having a full, fresh reset.”

Sypher went on to describe how Agent Jonesy has changed throughout the season, and how he appears to be transforming into the Default Jonesy we’ve seen since the game first began.

This is an interesting theory, but not one that we necessarily agree with. Sypher is onto a few things, here, but we don’t think it means that we’ll see a new Chapter anytime soon.

First, from a development perspective, Epic developers have already talked about the limitations of the old map when compared to the new one. The reason that map only lasted 24 months was because the development team wanted to move on to a bigger and better platform.

We may see Chapter 2 stick around a lot longer, as the developers are capable of creating more mechanics to this one.

We agree that Jonesy is transforming into Default Jonesy, which could be his future self. We also think that the map could be transforming into the old map, however, which would replace the need for a new chapter.

The developers have confirmed that we aren’t on a new map or a new planet. The Black Hole scrambled the old map and made it what it is today. Over the course of the past five seasons, the Chapter 1 POIs have slowly returned to their old locations.

By the end of Chapter 2, we expect the map to be identical to how it was during the early days of Chapter 1, just like Jonesy’s transformation we see in Season 5. His actions may even cause the creation of the “old” map and trap him inside the loop.

Anyone familiar with the Netflix show, Dark, probably has a good idea of how something like this would go. We also know that Creative Director Donald Mustard is a big fan of the series.

For those who don’t know, the opening line of the show is this: “We trust that time is linear. That it proceeds eternally, uniformly. Into infinity. But the distinction between past, present, and future is nothing but an illusion. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow are not consecutive, they are connected in a never-ending circle. Everything is connected.”

Does this sound familiar? Either way, whatever happens, we’ll know more when Season 5 ends on March 15.

After over a year of anticipation, Spanish YouTuber and streamer, TheGrefg, will finally be getting his own skin in Fortnite.

Update 1/11: The skin will be available when the Fortnite Item Shop updates on January 16.

Original article: It’s been a long time coming for the most popular Spanish Fortnite player on the internet, David ‘TheGrefg’ Martinez Canovas. He was included in the first announcement of the Fortnite Icon Series, only to be surpassed by several other content creators and celebrities.

Ninja, Loserfruit, Travis Scott, and Lachlan all received Fortnite skins before TheGrefg, with other creators like Pokimane and Jordan Fisher receiving emotes.

Now, after over a year of waiting, TheGrefg will be showcasing his upcoming Fortnite skin on Monday, January 11 at 20:00 CEST.

As is the case with most Fortnite Icon Series skins, TheGrefg and his fellow creators will have access to the skin a day or two before it hits the Item Shop. You can watch his Twitch stream for an early glimpse at the skin.

We’ll update this post when we get an official model for the skin. For now, all we have is the teaser image that he provided on Twitter.

As for when TheGrefg’s skin will be available, we’d guess that it will come to the shop on January 12-14. Fans of the streamer should keep their eyes peeled for more news.

SypherPK theorizes that Kevin the Cube will return in Fortnite Season 5

SypherPK has revealed his theory about when, where, and why Kevin the Cube will return before the end of Fortnite Season 5.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 is nearly half over, with fans speculating on how the current season will play out. Streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan thinks that Kevin the Cube will return before the season ends.

The Fortnite plotline is one of the most confusing, convoluted, and interesting plots in all of gaming. Unlike most other games that spell-out the story for you, Fortnite forces players to connect dots, pay attention to small clues, and create theories as to what the overall Fortnite plot includes.

We’ve seen so many red herrings, dead ends, and unanswered questions over the years that Fortnite has developed its story. At this point, it seems likely that Epic will never give us a concrete conclusion as to what all of this means, as each season seems to create more questions than it answeres.

One thing seems to be clear, however. The Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 seasons are connected. We had standard Season 1’a without many changes, some similar themes during Seasons 2 and 3, then the superhero skins of Season 4.

We’re now in Chapter 2 Season 5. Longtime Fortnite players will remember the Chapter 1 Season 5 theme of “Worlds Collide.” The same thing is happening this season, with Bounty Hunters and locations from the old map appearing in the exact same locations on the new one.

Most attentive Fortnite fans already know about this, but YouTuber and streamer SypherPK took the theory a step further. In a recent video, Sypher suggested that all of this is leading up to Kevin’s return later in the season.

Kevin the Cube first appeared in Fortnite in Chapter 1 Season 5. We’ve already had a ton of teasers that point to Kevin’s eventual return, from in-game hints to direct tweets from Creative Director, Donald Mustard.

Sypher touched on all of these points in his video, including a piece of information we hadn’t heard before, regarding the massive bunker in the southeast section of the Chapter 2 map.

“Here is the catch,” Sypher said when describing what ties all of this together. “If you overlay the Redacted Bunker on this map and compare it to where it was on the old map … Kevin the Cube spawned on the old map exactly where the Redacted Bunker is on the new map.”

This all led to Sypher’s conclusion: that Kevin will return to Fortnite by the end of Season 5 or “at the very least, at the beginning of next season.”

This theory holds up better than a lot of others we’ve seen, and most Fortnite theorists agree that we haven’t seen the last of Kevin.

With the midway point of Chapter 2 Season 5 approaching, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any movement around that bunker, along with Kevin’s potential escape.
