Tfue goes after organization for trying to “expose” him

Tfue went all-in on an organization for “exposing” him for his behavior during the Fortnite Champion Series.

Tfue went all-in on an organization for “exposing” him for his behavior during the Fortnite Champion Series.

It’s no secret that Tfue and Scoped land at The Grotto. In fact, the duo’s landing spot has led to one of the best rivalries in competitive Fortnite between them and the team of Chap and Av.

This past weekend, during the FNCS Finals, Tfue and Scoped were contested by another team of smaller streamers. The former duo got the better of the fights, which culminated in the latter grabbing the vault keycard and running away.

As you can expect, Tfue didn’t like this strategy. He and Scoped chased them and eliminated the duo. “Why are these kids in last place trying to grief us? You f**king suck,” Tfue said.

“50th place, trying to run off with The Grotto keycard in front of 100,000 people. How embarrassing,” he added.

The competing duo had TTV in their name, so Tfue’s viewers, naturally, went to their channels and started talking trash. Due to the fact that these two players had 0 points in the sixth game, Tfue accused them of trying to grief him and Scoped – something that happens a lot to big streamers in competitive Fortnite.

The two smaller streamers belong to gaming organization Starving Hustlers, and the hubbub prompted a video from their Twitter account, calling out Tfue.

As you can see, the video laid out the fact that the duo, Oops and Aiden, had been landing at The Grotto far longer than Tfue. The main point of the video was that this team wasn’t intentionally griefing Tfue and Scoped and that they didn’t disserve the backlash.

Tfue’s viewers took things too far. One viewer even went so far as to reveal the location of the competing duos. All of this triggered a response from Tfue, who pulled no punches. “Holy f**k, they’ve been landing there forever, dude!

“They probably have so much experience in The Grotto. Dude, I would never want to land on somebody that exp- oh s**t, what the- oh, they got 0 kills in six games,” Tfue joked as he scrolled down to the bottom of the FNCS standings.

“I don’t give a f**k how long anyone has been landing anywhere. If I show up at any POI and I s**t on you, get the f**k out,” he boasted, “Or else you’re gonna do bad, which they did. They got dead-last place.”

Tfue went on to say that if he were landing somewhere and continued to lose, he’d switch up his landing spot. “Bro, if I got s**t on five games in a row, what the f**k in your brain would you think, ‘hey, maybe the sixth time we can go back and it’ll be different’?”

Tfue then chastised the person who made the video for calling on Tfue to control his chat. In response to the complaints of viewers switching streams, Tfue said, “No s**t, bro. I have 100,000 g**d**n viewers on Twitch and you’re landing on us trying to ruin our f**king tournament, you braindead idiot.”

No streamer advocates doxxing, but Tfue hammered-home the fact that he can’t control everyone. “Like that doesn’t happen to me at all? Like f**king SWAT teams haven’t shown up to my parents’ house with f**king AR-15s pointed at them?”

It’s clear that Tfue took all of this pretty seriously, dismantling each point made by the video. Streamers like Tfue get clout farmed and griefed all of the time. This team ran off with the vault key. It’s easy to understand why Tfue took this stance – even if the griefing wasn’t intentional.

Whatever you might think about this situation, Tfue doubled-down on his original comments. He’s not apologizing for how he reacted, no matter who has a problem with it.

How to use pre-editing to your advantage in Fortnite

Don’t turn off pre-edits so fast! Learn how to make pre-edits work for you in Fortnite with these new competitive strategies.

Learn how to make pre-edits work for you in Fortnite with these competitive strategies.

Pre-edits in Fortnite can be maddening when you’re in the middle of a fight. More often than not, the pre-edits will work against you as you accidentally edit a hole in your floor or a window in your wall. Before you know it, you’re taking fall damage or getting shot because you hit the wrong button while battling someone.

Epic recently added a lon-requested setting to Fortnite, giving players the ability to toggle pre-edits on and off. Now, with a simple setting change, you’ll never need to worry about pre-edits again.

This doesn’t mean that pre-edits are entirely useless. In the patch before the setting change was released, pro player Maken used them expertly to outplay his opponent.

Useful pre-edits have also been posted to the r/FortniteCompetitive subreddit in the past. These pre-edits focus on cones, and give players the ability to fake-out opponents and even place their structures through turbo-builds.

The first strategy involves subverting the expectations of your opponent. Most skilled players anticipate edits, but using a pre-edited cone can get you a free shot.

As you can see, all you have to do is edit the wall, place your triangle cone, resent the cone edit, and shoot your opponent. There’s hardly anything they can do to prevent this free shot – especially since they aren’t going to see it coming.

The above clip from u/DemianNieuwenhuis has a very niche application. After all, using a regular cone is going to be far more useful in most situations. The only time your pre-edited cone will work is when someone is standing outside of your box.

This next clip is more of an exploit than anything. It also requires you to pre-edit your cone; this time in a V shape. You can exploit the new Turbo Building system and place the V-cone under your opponent’s ceiling after breaking their cone.

Again – like the other clip – this strategy will only be useful in certain situations. You won’t be able to cone-block opponents or even protect yourself from above if you run around with your cones all jacked up like this.

Still, these strategies are worth mentioning – especially if you find yourself in a 1v1. You can surprise your opponent with both of them, and steal some shots without taking damage.

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 Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.
