Tfue explains the “worst thing that Fortnite has ever done”

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney explains why removing traps was the “worst thing that Fortnite has ever done.”

Epic made a decision that surprised most Fortnite players in Season 2: they removed Spike Traps from the game. Traps were an integral part of Fortnite since the beginning. They’ve gone through nerfs and buffs, but have always been a part of the game.

Season 2 changed that. For the first time, players were unable to use traps as a defense against opponents who love to jump into their boxes. Before the removal of the item, the W-key killers would have to think twice before phasing through a wall. Now, there’s hardly any downside to this playstyle.

Most players agreed that traps were far too powerful. Getting hit by a 150-damage trap would kill any player short of that health mark, and they didn’t take a ton of skill to use.

Some Fortnite pros were asking for a substantial nerf or even the removal of traps. Epic answered these calls when Chapter 2 Season 2 dropped.

This small change to the game allowed some players to completely change their playstyles. Now, you can jump into a box without much hesitation.

This happened to Tfue during a recent stream, which triggered a rant in which he called the removal of traps the “worst thing that Fortnite has ever done.”

In response to a viewer who told Tfue that traps were terrible for the game, the streamer said, “Why? It literally prevented dumba** kids from jumping in your box. It’s literally the meta nowadays – just braindead people jump in boxes.

“God, this game has gotten so f**king cringe, holy f**k,” Tfue continued. “This game used to be so much fun.

The removal of traps was, certainly, controversial. Most Fortnite players would agree that 150 damage was too high, but the removal of traps causes the problem that Tfue described.

The aggressive spray meta of Season 2 is different than what we’ve seen in the past. Now, players won’t think twice about jumping into your box and challenging you to a 50/50.

This spray concept would be one of the most-used emotes if added

This Fortnite spray concept is as simple as it is brilliant.

Sprays are one of the most forgotten cosmetic items in all of Fortnite. At least Banners have their own skins and emoticons allow you to use them after death. Sprays, on the other hand, tend to sit in everyone’s locker, unused.

There are a couple of sprays that get some attention, but Reddit user u/JewishGuyOnReddit had an idea that could beat all of them – and some of the most popular emotes that are already in Fortnite.

The idea is as simple as it is brilliant. Here’s what it is: “_____ was here.” That’s it. Imagine how awesome that would be. You could spraypaint your Gamertag or IGN all over the island.

This would be up there with some of the classic emotes as an instant purchase and a staple of the front wheel. You could even incorporate the dead body outline to show that you eliminated a player and tagged their spot.

Epic have incorporated a ton of fan-made cosmetic items, and we’d like to submit this one for their review. Let’s bring sprays back with this one!

Ninja goes off on ‘boring’ Fortnite Chapter 2: ready for a new Season

Ninja calls the recent Fortnite seasons “boring” but remains hopeful for Season 3.

Published

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is second only to Chapter 2 Season 1 as the longest season in Fortnite history. This season, like the previous one, has also offered little in the way of new content to players who hop on the Battle Bus every day.

During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins unleashed his fury upon the recent state of Fortnite. He echoed the complaints of many longtime Fortnite players. His perspective might be a bit amplified by the number of hours he’s put into the game in the past year, but it’s relatable to many in the community.

“I don’t want to play Fortnite right now,” Ninja told his chat. “It’s boring, there’s nothing new/ I’m having a little bit of fun, sometimes, but we’ve been playing the same map … the only new places that they’ve added are places with Henchmen that beam you, and laser you, and s**t on your walls.”

(0:33 for mobile viewers)

In a moment of self-reflection, Ninja admitted that he’s starting to “sound like Turner (Tfue).” He acknowledged that he’s having more fun with Fortnite than other times in the past, but misses the variety that old Fortnite seasons brought us.

“It blows my mind that we were forced to play the very first Season 1 for, like, 120 days,” Ninja continued before looking at the chart that showed the length of each season. “Double the length of seasons with half the content. Two seasons have almost taken up a year!”

Ninja is giving a voice to a large portion of the community who are eager for Season 3 to come out. Rumors are swirling about an additional delay to the next season due to the protests in the United States. Epic and Loserfruit just announced a delay to her Icon Series skin for that reason.

We have yet to hear any official news about a Season 3 delay, just yet. Of course, we’ll keep you covered if that changes.

Epic Games & Loserfruit postpone her Fortnite Icon Series skin

Streamer, Loserfruit, has announced that she and Epic have decided to postpone the release of her Icon Series Fortnite skin.

The entire world is reeling in the wake of the protests and demonstrations surrounding the murder of George Floyd. There are, certainly, more important things going on than Fortnite, but that’s what we’re here to talk about.

Many fans are speculating that Epic will add a further delay to Season 3, following the announced delays of the PS5 new Call of Duty Season. Epic have yet to speak out on this topic, so we should expect the event to take place on June 6 until we hear otherwise.

One thing that has been delayed is the newest addition to the Fortnite Icon Series. Leaks pointed to a Loserfruit skin hitting the Item Shop this week. The streamer even posted a cryptic message on her Instagram story, signaling that the skin would be released on June 3.

Loserfruit logged onto her stream on June 3 and to update her fans and explain why her Icon Series skin wouldn’t be in the shop. “Me and Epic decided it wasn’t the right time to release the skin, this week,” she said.

“I think you guys know from leaks,” the streamer chuckled, “that it was meant to come out on the third. So we decided to wait.”

The delay is an understandable one for several reasons. Getting your own skin in a video game is a big deal, and Loserfruit would undoubtedly feel guilty for celebrating her accomplishments in a time like this. As we said, there are far more important things happening than anything related to Fortnite.

We can expect to see the skin hit the Item Shop within the next couple of weeks. We still have no news on whether or not Season 3 will be released as planned. We’ll keep you updated on all of these topics as more information comes out.
