SypherPK humiliates trash-talking viewer in Fortnite 1v1

Content creator Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan made easy work of a trash-talking viewer during a recent stream.

Content creator Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan made easy work of a trash-talking viewer during a recent stream.

Being a top-tier Twitch streamer comes with a drawback: people are going to hate you for no reason other than your success. Some people think that a streamer’s success may be undeserved, so they start to hate them.

We see this all the time in all different mediums. When someone gets too popular, more people start to want to see them fail. Twitch streaming might bring this to its extreme, as everyone seems to think that they could make it big by playing video games.

SypherPK encountered one of these haters during a recent stream. The viewer was trash-talking Sypher in the chat pretty hard. Sypher tried to ban the viewer, but couldn’t because the battery on his mouse had died.

As fate would have it, Sypher’s party was finished playing after this match, which meant the streamer went solo. It was a perfect time to accept this viewer’s challenge for a 1v1 boxfight. Sypher invited the player to his game, but not before muting his voice settings.

Sypher said that he did this for a few reasons. He didn’t want the player to “shout himself out or do anything stupid.” He also didn’t want to know if the player was a little kid. That way, Sypher could talk all the trash he wanted without feeling bad about it.

The trash-talker jumped out to an early lead in the first two games, but Sypher graciously took the third game without talking smack to the viewer.

From there, Sypher began to get his footing and his opponent got a bit nervous. The streamer applied non-stop pressure to force his opponent onto his back foot. Sypher’s confidence started to build and it showed.

Before long, things started to spiral out of control for the trash talker. Sypher ended up taking the victory with a 10-5 win after losing his first two matches. In the end, Sypher went on a 10-3 run against a viewer who was sure that they were better than the content creator.

When it was all said and done, the usually family-friendly Sypher went on a profanity-laden rant that may have made this kid uninstall Fortnite.

“Get f***ed. 10-5. Easy kill,” he said. “The reason why I still make educational commentaries if because of s***ters like you, who think they’re better than they are. And they come in my chat and talk s***! You got smacked by a content creator! Don’t ever disrespect me!”

Sypher’s performance speaks for itself. This player thought that he was better than Sypher, and the streamer took him up on his challenge.

We’re in the age of wager matches and boxfighting records. All of the rising talent in Fortnite seems to be prioritizing this playstyle, and content creators who don’t play this way are seen as less skilled. Sypher stood up for the entire Fortnite content creator community with this win.

Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable the setting.

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite back in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable it so you can play locally with a friend.

Fortnite has always had a focus on playing with friends, but that always meant you had to play online. Even if you were in the same house as your friend or family member, the two of you had to play on two separate devices.

This changed back in the v11.30 update in Chapter 2 Season 1. Epic introduced split-screen capabilities on consoles for the first time. It wasn’t perfect when it first came out, but it’s since gotten a lot better.

How to use the Fortnite console split-screen feature

Initiating split-screen is simple. All you have to do is connect two controllers to your Xbox or PlayStation. Split-screen still isn’t available on mobile, PC, or Nintendo Switch. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Start Fortnite
  2. Connect a second controller to the console and turn it on
  3. Hit ‘Main Menu’
  4. Player 1 will need to invite Player 2 with their Epic account
  5. Player 2 will need to sign into their account
  6. Player 2 will join and split-screen will automatically initiate

You can even save another player’s information on another account on your console, making split-screen easier and quicker to complete.

The feature still isn’t perfect and doesn’t replace the feeling of playing online. You’ll only have access to half of your screen, so you’re going to miss a few things that normal players will see. Still, playing split-screen is far more preferable than switching off with your friend or family member game after game. Enjoy!

Fortnite v16.20: what to expect

The Fortnite Season 6 v16.20 update is expected to go live this week. Here’s what we expect to see in the next Fortnite update

Fortnite Season 6

The Fortnite v16.20 is expected to release this week. Here’s what we’ll see in the patch notes when the update goes live.

We’re working our way through Fortnite Season 6, but Epic are continuing to give us new content to explore. We’re only a week past v16.10 and are already expecting to see v16.20 go live this week.

Here’s our typical patch breakdown on what to expect in the update, including some leaked items and a long list of bug fixes.

Bug fixes

Epic are consistently updating their game to fix bugs, glitches, and exploits. In the v16.20 patch, we’ll see a ton of fixes – including a fix for an exploit that allowed players to gain unlimited health/shield over the course of a match.

Here are all of the bug fixes that should be addressed in the v16.20 update.

  • Cannot create system-level parties between PS5 and PS4 when playing Fortnite.
  • Code Green Wrap not appearing correctly.
  • Arena playlist issues.
  • Storm visibility is clear when using Performance Mode.
  • Collection Book Character #17 not appearing on the Island.
  • Slurpshrooms and Coconuts temporarily disabled.
  • (Creative) Start with ‘Pickaxe’ Creator setting still spawning with a Pickaxe.
  • (Creative) Vehicles not moving properly in Creative.
  • (Mobile) Cosmetics in Lobby appearing blurry on Nintendo Switch.
  • (Mobile) 3D resolution reset itself even if the player saved the settings.

Leaks

We’ve seen a few leaks about content that could be coming to Fortnite in the coming weeks. The most likely addition to Fortnite in v16.20 would be the Unstable Bow – a rumored Exotic weapon that should be coming to Season 6.

On top of that, we’ve seen leaks about vehicle and weapon mods, additional crafting materials, and more. We don’t know if/when any of these will come to the game. We always take leaks with a grain of salt, but many of these items will likely make their way to Fortnite – possibly in the next update.

Fortnite Season 6 unstable bow

We’ll keep you posted when we have official word from Epic on the v16.20 patch. We expect to see it on April 13 or 14, at the latest.

In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Twitter @FortniteINTEL so you never miss out on any of the latest Fortnite news.

How to tame Raptors in Fortnite Season 6

Raptors have entered Fortnite Season 6 in the v16.10 update. Here’s where to find and how to tame Raptors.

Fortnite season 6 tame a raptor

Raptors are now available in Fortnite Season 6. Here’s where to find and tame the new creatures.

The Fortnite v16.10 update brought a new form of wildlife to Fortnite: Raptors. These predators are now roaming the island, looking for blood.

Of course, you can tame these dinosaurs to fight by your side. Unfortunately, you can’t ride them, but they can be a huge help when it comes to combat. Here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite Raptor locations

Unsurprisingly, Raptors spawn around the areas where their eggs hatched. You can find them around Stealthy Stronghold, outside of Craggy Cliffs, south of The Spire, and south of Misty Meadows.

Raptors spawn in pairs and are stronger than wolves when you fight them. This is not to say that taking them down will be difficult. We’re not dealing with Marauders, here.

Here’s a map of all of the known Raptor spawns in Fortnite Season 6. We’ll update this map if the spawns change or if players find more locations.

How to tame a Raptor in Fortnite

Taming a Raptor is the same as taming most of the other wildlife on the island. It will be the same process as taming a Wolf – arguably easier as wolves spawn in packs rather than pairs.

  1. Eliminate a Wolf, Chicken, or Boar for its meat
  2. Find a Raptor
  3. Throw the meat at its feat and wait for the Raptor to eat
  4. Walk up to the Raptor and hold “Interact” to tame.

Be careful, as Raptors spawn in pairs. Just because you tame one, doesn’t mean its partner doesn’t still want to eat you.

Fortnite Raptors

With such a quick addition of a new animal, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Epic add more wildlife to the island as Season 6 chugs along.

We’ll update you if we learn anything else about the wildlife of Fortnite – or if we find any new tricks to taming Raptors.
