Fortnite pro player BenjyFishy fell for the oldest trick in the book during a Solo Cash Cup.

Poor, poor Benjy. Anyone who has played Fortnite Chapter 2 or frequents the r/FortniteBR subreddit knows that diving off of a waterfall can be risky. Trolls are everywhere, waiting to strike.

For those who don’t know, it has become a popular troll to build over the water at the bottom of a waterfall. Unknowing players jump off, thinking they’ll hit the water, only to realize that there’s no saving themselves.

BenjyFishy is widely regarded as one of the best players in the EU region. He regularly places highly in solo and group competitions. This time, he got outplayed by someone better.

Obviously, that’s a bit of hyperbole. Benjy was reading donations when he jumped off the cliff. He tried to save himself, but there’s no recovering from this 200 IQ troll.

I just hope that the player who tarped the waterfall saw this clip. He stole a round from the great BenjyFishy by using a troll tactic that has been posted to Reddit over 100 times.

You win some, you lose some. Let this be a lesson for everyone at home: Look over the waterfall before you jump!
