Tfue lost for words after encountering several glitches in a Cash Cup

Tfue experienced some of the rarest bugs in Fortnite back-to-back-to-back.

Everyone knows that Fortnite has some issues with glitches and bugs. We have the reload bug that’s been in the game for weeks, rampant frame-rate drops, and several other glitches that pop up here and there.

Tfue, however, experienced a few new Fortnite bugs that most players have rarely encountered. He must be one of the most unlucky players in the game, as he ran into two of these during a duo Cash Cup.

The first glitch involved fall damage. Tfue hit the zipline, jumped off, and seemed to land inside the dumpster before going down and needing a revive from Scoped. When he got picked up, he couldn’t move. Of course, you can’t destroy the dumpsters that teleport you.

That same game, he experienced another bug that had him stuck at the top of The Grotto entrance, unable to move. He had to let himself die and get a revive from Scoped to continue the game.

Tfue’s bad luck didn’t end there. He died, got revived, and was unable to run. He and Scoped were stuck in the storm, so he couldn’t do much to contend for the rest of the match.

Tfue seems to be a magnet for these Fortnite glitches. The day before, during a Cash Cup with Innocents, Tfue’s partner died to a fall damage bug and sunk to the bottom of the water. Tfue was unable to revive him.

There are always going to be a few bugs in Fortnite, but Tfue experienced several rare and frustrating bugs two days in a row. He’s said it before and he may be right: Tfue is the unluckiest player in the game.

After over a year of anticipation, Spanish YouTuber and streamer, TheGrefg, will finally be getting his own skin in Fortnite.

Update 1/11: The skin will be available when the Fortnite Item Shop updates on January 16.

Original article: It’s been a long time coming for the most popular Spanish Fortnite player on the internet, David ‘TheGrefg’ Martinez Canovas. He was included in the first announcement of the Fortnite Icon Series, only to be surpassed by several other content creators and celebrities.

Ninja, Loserfruit, Travis Scott, and Lachlan all received Fortnite skins before TheGrefg, with other creators like Pokimane and Jordan Fisher receiving emotes.

Now, after over a year of waiting, TheGrefg will be showcasing his upcoming Fortnite skin on Monday, January 11 at 20:00 CEST.

As is the case with most Fortnite Icon Series skins, TheGrefg and his fellow creators will have access to the skin a day or two before it hits the Item Shop. You can watch his Twitch stream for an early glimpse at the skin.

We’ll update this post when we get an official model for the skin. For now, all we have is the teaser image that he provided on Twitter.

As for when TheGrefg’s skin will be available, we’d guess that it will come to the shop on January 12-14. Fans of the streamer should keep their eyes peeled for more news.

SypherPK theorizes that Kevin the Cube will return in Fortnite Season 5

SypherPK has revealed his theory about when, where, and why Kevin the Cube will return before the end of Fortnite Season 5.

Fortnite Season 5 is nearly half over, with fans speculating on how the current season will play out. Streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan thinks that Kevin the Cube will return before the season ends.

The Fortnite plotline is one of the most confusing, convoluted, and interesting plots in all of gaming. Unlike most other games that spell-out the story for you, Fortnite forces players to connect dots, pay attention to small clues, and create theories as to what the overall Fortnite plot includes.

We’ve seen so many red herrings, dead ends, and unanswered questions over the years that Fortnite has developed its story. At this point, it seems likely that Epic will never give us a concrete conclusion as to what all of this means, as each season seems to create more questions than it answeres.

One thing seems to be clear, however. The Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 seasons are connected. We had standard Season 1’a without many changes, some similar themes during Seasons 2 and 3, then the superhero skins of Season 4.

We’re now in Chapter 2 Season 5. Longtime Fortnite players will remember the Chapter 1 Season 5 theme of “Worlds Collide.” The same thing is happening this season, with Bounty Hunters and locations from the old map appearing in the exact same locations on the new one.

Most attentive Fortnite fans already know about this, but YouTuber and streamer SypherPK took the theory a step further. In a recent video, Sypher suggested that all of this is leading up to Kevin’s return later in the season.

Kevin the Cube first appeared in Fortnite in Chapter 1 Season 5. We’ve already had a ton of teasers that point to Kevin’s eventual return, from in-game hints to direct tweets from Creative Director, Donald Mustard.

Sypher touched on all of these points in his video, including a piece of information we hadn’t heard before, regarding the massive bunker in the southeast section of the Chapter 2 map.

“Here is the catch,” Sypher said when describing what ties all of this together. “If you overlay the Redacted Bunker on this map and compare it to where it was on the old map … Kevin the Cube spawned on the old map exactly where the Redacted Bunker is on the new map.”

This all led to Sypher’s conclusion: that Kevin will return to Fortnite by the end of Season 5 or “at the very least, at the beginning of next season.”

This theory holds up better than a lot of others we’ve seen, and most Fortnite theorists agree that we haven’t seen the last of Kevin.

With the midway point of Chapter 2 Season 5 approaching, we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for any movement around that bunker, along with Kevin’s potential escape.

SypherPK gives his opinion on how to fix the Fortnite shotgun meta

Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan gave his thoughts on how Fortnite can fix the shotgun meta. Surprisingly, it doesn’t involve unvaulting the Pump.

Published

Fortnite streamer Al ‘SypherPK’ Hassan has an idea of how Epic can properly balance shotguns in Fortnite. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t have anything to do with the Pump.

Fortnite Season 5 is truly a return to form for the game. Season 4 brought a ton of “old Fortnite” vibes back, and Season 5 brought entirely new mechanics to add to the foundation.

Of course, these massive changes meant that some fan-favorite items and mechanics had to go. The two most game-altering changes were the removal of Pumps and Upgrade Stations.

Most hardcore Fortnite players miss the Pump, but the removal of Upgrade Benches might be more significant. Now, instead of visiting any POI and trading materials for a better weapon, you need to visit specific locations and make sure you have enough Gold with you.

In Arena Mode, upgrading a weapon to Epic or Legendary is nearly impossible. You start each match with 0 Gold Bars, so farming enough gold and visiting one of the few NPCs that offer upgrades is more difficult than randomly finding a better option.

Streamer and YouTuber SypherPK touched on this issue in one of his recent videos. The title and thumbnail focused on the Pump, but Sypher’s major suggestion related to weapon upgrades more than anything.

Sypher noted the discrepancy between the Green and Purple Tac, along with the extremely niche opportunities to upgrade your weapon. His solution was simple: “I think every single NPC should give you the option to upgrade your weapons.”

The low availability of weapon upgrades affects the shotgun meta more than anything else. A Scar is nice to have, but an Uncommon AR will do just fine. The same is true of SMGs.

Shotguns have always been the backbone of Fortnite combat, however, and the lack of upgrades adds a huge amount of randomness to a given Fortnite match.

If Epic decide to extend the NPC system past Season 5, they need to strongly consider Sypher’s suggestion of allowing all NPCs to upgrade weapons. Will they make this change or reenable Upgrade Benches? Only time will tell.
