Fortnite community has reacted to FaZe Dubs’ racial slur situation, including two of the biggest names in the game: Tfue and Ninja.

FaZe Dubs has received an indefinite ban from FaZe Clan following a clip of him using a racial slur on another streamer’s broadcast. The FaZe pro is banned from streaming, posting, or competing by his organization.

A lot of the community were waiting to see how FaZe Clan – one of the most recognizable names in esports – would react to the controversy. Instead of dropping Dubs, FaZe decided to put him on ice while the situation dies down.

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney reacted to the situation when asked about it on his stream. “Just because someone says the n-word doesn’t mean they’re racist,” the former FaZe Clan member told his chat. “Like, I don’t think f**king Dubs is obviously racist. But it is f**king weird that he would say it, like, you know? In his off time, you know?”

FaZe Clan’s statement on Dubs

Tfue expanded on his thoughts, calling the situation “cringe.” The streamer didn’t go so far as to blame it on Dubs’ age, but he admitted, “When we’re kids, we all do dumb s**t, so.”

In response to a viewer who said that it was an accident, Tfue said, “I don’t think you say the hard-R on accident, you know?”

Ninja reacted to the controversy on his stream as well when his duo partner, Reverse2k, brought it up. The former streamer was blissfully unaware of everything that was happening with the FaZe Clan pro.

“Oh boy,” Ninja said. “Nothing makes me more uncomfortable than a white person dropping a hard-R”

“I think what makes that even worse is that, like, the reason he said it was because he thought no one was streaming,” he continued. “Yikes.”

Ninja and Reverse went on to discuss a possible ban for Dubs. They debated whether or not FaZe would drop Dubs before they saw the organization’s response to the controversy.

The two then read Dubs’ Twitter apology, to which Ninja responded, “I don’t even know what to say about the whole situation.”

“I’m going to break it down for you – just the reality of it all. Saying that word – like the hard-R and everything – off-stream, because you think you’re off-stream, and then just apologizing about it … it’s just the typical apology.

“That’s standard. Expected,” Ninja said. He started to expand more on the thought before stopping himself and saying, “I mean, he’s a kid, I don’t know, it’s just so stupid. The whole thing is – he shouldn’t have said it.

The conversation then turned to the duo talking about organizations and contracts. There was some talk of Dubs trying to get out of his contract by using the slur, but the context of the situation suggests that this wasn’t the case.

We’ll have to see how this whole situation shakes out for the Fortnite pro. He’s sidelined for now, but will likely come back and compete at a high level once again. Dubs is only 15 years old and will, hopefully, take this situation as a learning experience.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
