Fortnite pro BenjyFishy falls for the oldest trick in the book

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

Published

There have been multiple issues with falling in Fortnite Chapter 2.

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!

Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 Challenge guide

All challenges for Fortnite Season 4 Week 9 and how to complete them – including the Upstate New York and Heart Lake locations.

Published

on

Fortnitemares is here, bringing a new list of challenges for players to complete. That doesn’t mean that the weekly challenges are slowing down as players finish up the Battle Pass and work their way to the holographic skins.

Unfortunately, we’ll be chasing some floating rings again this week. Apart from that, these challenges are relatively straightforward and can be completed within a few matches of Team Rumble.

  • Search Chests at Holly Hedge (7)
  • Eliminations at Slurpy Swamp (3)
  • Collect Floating Rings at Steamy Stacks (3)
  • Land at Sharky Shell and finish Top 25
  • Heal teammates with a Bandage Bazooka (7)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sweaty Sands (500)
  • Dance at the highest spot and the lowest spot on the map

Sharky Shell might sound like a brand-new POI, but you’ve probably been here several times without knowing what it’s called. This refers to the remnants of The Shark, which was decimated by the flood. The removal of the 100% chest spawn-rate hit The Shark hard, and the fact that a lot of people will contest it for this challenge is going to make this a tough one.

We’ll publish additional guides that show you the lowest and highest point on the Fortnite map along with the Floating Rings in Steamy Stacks. The rest of these challenges should be easy enough to work your way through.

After getting your eliminations, searching chests, and dealing damage, you’ll probably be left with the requirement of healing teammates with a Bandage Bazooka. This one is always tough, as you don’t always have the opportunity to complete it in a typical Fortnite match. In our experience, the best way to complete this challenge is to grab a Bandage Bazooka in Team Rumble.

As always, we’ll keep you posted with all of the upcoming Fortnite challenges. Follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL to stay up to date with all of the latest Fortnite news, challenges, memes, and more.

Fortnitemares: Midas’ Revenge challenge guide

A guide to all of the released and leaked Fortnitemares 2020 challenges.

Published

on

Fortnitemares 2020 is here, bringing players a ton of new content to enjoy. We have Zombie Shadows giving players the ability to respawn, some new locations to explore, and Midas’ return from the dead after being eaten by a shark.

Of course, with a new event comes a list of challenges and rewards. We only have three available challenges at the time of writing, but data miners were able to clue us into what else will be coming in the future. Here are all of the challenges you’ll need to complete this Fortnitemares season:

  • Become a Shadow
  • Travel 100 meters on a Witch Broom
  • Eat Candy
  • Deal damage with a Possessed Vehicle
  • Detect players as a Shadow
  • Eliminate Shadow Midas
  • Eliminate shadows as Player
  • Visit Different Witch Shacks
  • Consume legendary loot as a Shadow

As we said, only the first three challenges are available at the time of writing. Becoming a Shadow is easy as staying in the game after you die. If you do this three times, you’ll complete the first stage of the challenge.

Witch Brooms can be found at the Witch Shacks scattered around the map. We’ll have a separate guide to these posted when the next stage of the challenges come to the game. You can find that linked here.

Candy is found all over the map, but the best place to find it could be at Doom’s Domain. It looks like Doom’s Henchmen have left out some candy for the kids. See? They’re not all bad.

Possessed vehicles have been in the game for a while – often called “dancing cars” before Fortnitemares came out. To find one, you’ll need to hop inside, exit, and see if the car starts jumping around. If it does, then you can use it for the damage challenge.

Finishing these challenges will net you some unique rewards including a back bling, a weapon wrap, two emoticons, and an exclusive pickaxe. Out of all of the recent limited-time rewards, this lineup is one of the best.

Fortnitemares Challenge Rewards

We’ll continue to update this post as more challenges become available. You won’t want to miss out on these limited-time rewards, so make sure you’re staying up to date with all of your Fortnitemares challenges!

How to get the Shadow Midas Drum Gun in Fortnitemares

Want Midas’ Drum Gun this Forntitemares season? Here’s how to get the only mythic weapon in Fortnite.

Published

Fortnitemares Midas' drum gun

Fortnitemare’s 2020 is here, and Midas is back in action after the minor setback of being eaten by a shark. Our old friend might not be in the game for the rest of the season, but he’ll be a boss until the end of Fortnitemares – scheduled for November 2.

As you might expect, Midas is patrolling his old headquarters at The Agency, which is now a Shadow-controlled POI called “The Ruins.” Here, you’ll find a plethora of RPG-wielding Henchmen who are more than willing to go down with the ship. Make sure that you have plenty of materials before aggravating one of them.

On the roof of The Ruins, you can see the remnants of the séance that brought Midas back to life. There’s a circle of candles with Midas’ golden chair in the center of them – levitating off of the ground.

Now, let’s talk about Midas’ Drum Gun. It’s not exactly the same as it was the first time around. In fact, it would be more accurate to say that Midas is carrying Jules’ Drum Gun from Season 3. This is, of course, the nerfed version of the weapon after the Season 2 Drum Gun performed far too well.

Anyone who played Fortnite during Season 3 knows that the Drum Gun wasn’t worth carrying back then. This was a season that featured the normal SMG, P90, and Rapid-Fire SMG, making the Mythic Drum Gun an afterthought.

Now, however, we only have the Silenced SMG and Tactical SMG – both with slower fire rates than the current Drum Gun. When you combine the Drum Gun’s fire rate with its larger clip size and increased damage/range, it becomes the best spray weapon in Season 4. The Drum Gun is an interesting example of how a meta shift can impact a single weapon in Fortnite.

The method of finding the Drum Gun is the same as it was in the past two seasons. You need to land at The Ruins, fight off other players, find, Midas, burn down all of his health, and take his weapon. This time, however, you’ll need to contest with the dozens of players falling from the sky as Shadow zombies.

The Ruins has to be the most dangerous place on the map – and it probably will be for the duration of the Fortnitemares event. Is the Drum Gun worth the massive risk of landing here? That decision is yours to make.
