The Twitch Rivals SuperGames wrapped up last night and saw Mike Evans, Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster, Tfue, and Scoped take home first place.

The Twitch Rivals SuperGames followed-up one of the most entertaining Fortnite tournaments in recent memory in the StreamerBowl. This time, instead of only NFL players, the games were open to all professional athletes.

Tfue and Scoped had the god-squad of NFL wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mike Evans. Both of the athletes competed in the StreamerBowl and regularly play Fortnite.

Fortnite tournament experience didn’t matter too much in this one, however. The Blitz LTM ruleset – where the storm continuously moves for the entire match – ended up being far more chaotic than most of these players predicted.

In a normal Fortnite game, you’re battling other players with the storm as a secondary fight. This dynamic flipped in the SuperGames tournament. Players were fighting the storm first and foremost, with opponents being a secondary threat.

Once the Fortnite streamers and pros got the hang of the Blitz tournament meta, it became a game of who could fish the most. SypherPK, who lasted an hour and a half in the storm for a YouTube challenge, ended up finishing in 6th place with only 3 kills.

Scoped, Tfue, JuJu, and Mike Evans out-slayed the rest of the lobby with 34 eliminations and a 15-point lead on second place; taking home $150,000 for charity. They were one of the favorites going into the tournament and one of the only top-five teams that you expected to be there.

The tournament was entertaining enough. It was for charity money, so the streamers and pro players weren’t taking it too seriously. It would have been more fun to see these teams battle it out in a real tournament format, but this gave some players more of a chance to win.

The aforementioned team of SypherPK and DrLupo, who finished in sixth place, weren’t on anyone’s big board at the beginning of the tournament.

Sypher is a talented player but DrLupo has been away from the game for quite a while. The former would have been hard-pressed to carry all three teammates against stacked duos like Chap and BenjyFishy, Tfue and Scoped, Ranger and Tocata, etc.

In an environment where teams are colluding with other players and being accused of DDoSing opponents, Twitch Rivals seems to be the most fun and wholesome way to watch competitive Fortnite. Let’s hope that they have another one of these lined up with a more traditional competitive ruleset.

SypherPK showcases the best hero ability in Fortnite Season 4

SypherPK has crowned Fortnite Season 4’s best Mythic hero ability: Sorm’s Whirlwind Blast

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is, in many ways, a return to form for Fortnite. We’re having a lot more lighthearted fun than we had over the course of the past couple of seasons. On top of that, with the spray weapons nerfed or gone, the competitive meta is also more entertaining to watch and play.

Hero abilities are helping to keep the game fresh, as well, and offering several different playstyles that weren’t there during the first portion of Chapter 2. Instead of ramped-up versions of existing weapons, the Season 4 Mythic items are entirely new.

Obviously, some Mythic abilities are more powerful than others. For instance, Silver Surfer’s Re-Deploy ability has gotten a lot of attention in competitive modes, while Groot’s Baller has largely been left behind.

One ability seems to stand above the rest, however – at least when it comes to the Core Fortnite game modes. Storm’s Mythic Whirlwind Blast ability might be the most powerful one that Epic have added.

During a recent stream, SypherPK noticed something that a lot of players hadn’t. He shot his Doctor Doom energy orb at a player, only to have it come flying back at him. As it turns out, Storm’s ability reflects projectiles.

When you add this to the fact that you can avoid fall damage, launch players to their death, and reflect damage from incoming cars, it’s an easy decision when you have to choose one Mythic item to carry.

SypherPK released a video that shows all of the uses for Storm’s Mythic ability, including the most popular and effective one: launching players to their death. You can also reflect all of the other offensive hero abilities in Fortnite – save for Iron Man’s Unibeam.

Hopefully, this item stays out of competitive Fortnite. If not, then we can be sure of what the next “Kit’s Shockwave Launcher” will be during the Season 4 FNCS. Keep your head on a swivel if you run into a player using this ability in-game.

Leak

Leaked Fortnite weapon is a cross between a Minigun & Grenade Launcher

This leaked Fortnite weapon is scary…

Published

The Fortnite community tends to be split when it comes to explosive weapons. Some enjoy the ability to break down any structure in the game, while others prefer a rocket-free experience when cranking 90’s for high-ground.

We’ve seen all kinds of explosive weapons come and go from Fortnite. We’ve had the Quad Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Proximity Launcher, regular RPG, Pumpkin Launcher, and several others. Only a couple of them have remained in the loot pool for more than a season.

According to Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e_, it looks like the latest explosive weapon is on the horizon. We’ve only seen some statistics and mesh image of the item, but that’s enough for us to be intimidated as to the destruction it could cause.

Mang0e_ described the weapon as a “cross between a Grenade Launcher and a Minigun.” If that doesn’t send a chill up your spine, we don’t know what will. These are two of the most powerful weapons that Fortnite has ever seen. Now, we’re combining them?

Of course, this is only preliminary information and we have no idea if this item will ever even come to Fortnite. The initial impression could be way off as well, so it’s no time to panic.

After all, we saw Machine Pistols leaked last year and they still haven’t entered the game. Just recently, we got the first piece of concrete news on the item since last November. This is all to say that it could be a long time before this strange “heavy weapon” comes to Fortnite – if it ever does.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the weapon, but it could be a while. Epic likely won’t release the next Fortnite update for at least a week or two, and we don’t expect to see this weapon when it does come out. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, to be the first to know all of the breaking Fortnite news.

Fortnite Mythic weapon leak: ‘Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols’

Fortnite leaks reveal that Mystique is finally getting a Mythic item.

Published

Fortnite Season 4 is all about the hero abilities. We’ve seen an ability for nearly every hero in the game along with some for heroes that haven’t even been released, such as Black Panther and Venom.

The only Battle Pass hero who hasn’t received a Mythic ability is, strangely, Mystique. To be fair, it might be a bit difficult for Epic to come up with one. Her superpower, after all, revolves around shapeshifting into other people. We can use this as a built-in Mystique emote, but it doesn’t work as a standalone in-game mechanic.

Well, it seems like Mystique’s mythic item is in development. That’s right: reports have it that we’re getting an item rather than an ability. Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e, released his findings: Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols.

You probably don’t remember this weapon model – it’s not everyone’s job to follow all of these Fortnite leaks – but this Machine Pistol was leaked over a year ago. After several updates, Epic adjusted the statistics and rarities of the unreleased weapon.

Still, even after the weapon was updated, Epic kept it out of the game for almost a year. It seems like we may finally see a version of this weapon enter Fortnite in Season 4.

We still have a lot of unanswered questions about this weapon. Most likely, we’ll be able to get our hands on it through the drones located at the Quinjet landing sights. This has been the most common place to grab Mythic hero abilities. Of course, we don’t know this for sure.

Will the third leak be the charm for the Machine Pistol, AKA Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols? Only time will tell. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about this weapon.
