Zayt accuses Tfue and 5 more Fortnite pros of using macros

Zayt appears convinced that Tfue and other Fortnite pros are using macros for their double movement keybinds.



For those who are unaware, using a macro in a video game refers to an outside program giving you the ability to bind several mouse movements, keystrokes, etc. to a single button, making it easier to complete certain tasks.

The topic of using macros in Fortnite has recently surfaced – largely due to a feud between two Australian YouTubers. EJLad accused SerpentAU of using macros for fast editing in his videos. SerpentAU admitted that he did use a program once for a video, but decided against it going forward.

That’s not the topic we’re discussing, here, but it sets the stage for why macros seem to be a hot topic in the Fortnite community. This story starts with a series of now-deleted tweets from NRG Fortnite pro, Williams ‘Zayt’ Aubin. The first tweet promised to expose popular Fortnite pros who used macros to achieve the “double movement” technique.

In a follow-up tweet, Zayt called out Tfue, UnknownArmy, Zexrow, BuckeFPS, Khanada, and Kreo. “I found out about double movement a year ago and practiced it,” Zayt wrote in another tweet. “Now all these pros use macros and it’s just f***ing annoying. Probably nothing will happen to them.”

All of the Fortnite pros who were mentioned in this tweet – with the exception of Tfue and Zexrow – directly responded to these allegations. None of the pros who responded seemed to take the situation overly seriously as they proclaimed their innocence.

As we said, Zayt deleted these tweets and offered no proof that any of the pros he mentioned were using macros, All of them seemed to let the accusation slide after a couple of jabs in return.

It’s very difficult to tell whether or not a player is using subtle macros from a viewer’s perspective. There may very well be some pros out there who use them, but there isn’t any concrete evidence that Kreo, Bucke, Unknown, Tfue, ZexRow, and Khanada are among them.

We reached out to Zayt for clarification on these tweets. He responded by telling us that “there is 0 evidence of anyone except Tfue, currently.” In reference to the other pros he named, he said, “I’m pretty sure they are all legit.”

At the time of writing, we have no evidence of Tfue or any other Fortnite pros using macros for double-movement. Zayt, for his part, appears convinced that Tfue is using them – albeit without any substantive proof. We’ll keep you posted if anything else comes to light with this story.


Fortnite leaks point to in-game comic books coming soon

Comic books are likely heading to Fortnite sooner rather than later – with Thor being the first issue.



The most recent Fortnite update, v13.40, brought us a ton of leaks that point to what the future of the game will hold. We already covered the 30+ new fish types found in the game files, but they weren’t the only new concept that was included in the patch.

Data miners also found mention of a “ComicReader” in the files. This would, naturally, suggest that readable comic books will be heading to Fortnite in the near future.

We have more than just a line of text, however. Apparently, those who switch accounts on Xbox (and possibly PS4) will be greeted with a glitched cut-scene. Obviously, this is not meant to be in the game, just yet.

We can see where the new comic books will be located in the Battle Pass tab, as well as what will happen when you click on them. What will these comic books hold? Well, we have some clues as to that as well.

Will these comic books be original content? We’re sure that some of them will, but we also have some leaks that point to actual comic books coming to Fortnite. Right now, they appear to be Marvel Comics.

Data miner, Hypex, has been spearheading these leaks. He was able to use the blurry photo of a Fortnite comic book to find out the actual comic that they came from. This one appears to be a Thor comic.

With all of this information available, we’d be surprised if Epic didn’t release comics before Season 4. Likewise, we expect the Season 4 secret Fortnite skin to relate to the in-game comics.

All of this points to Thor being the potential Season 4 secret skin. Fans were already theorizing about this when they saw what Captain America left behind in his release trailer – a glyph that looked strikingly similar to Thor’s glyph from one of his films.

Of course, this is only speculation. For now, all we know for sure is that Epic are planning on adding comics to Fortnite, soon – with Thor likely being the subject of their first issue. As always, we’ll keep you posted when we learn more.

Waffles unbanned from Fortnite under threat of legal action

Epic Games unbanned pro player, Waffles, after the CarterPulse agency stepped in.



Earlier this week, we covered the story of Fortnite pro player, Waffles, who had been banned from Fortnite after encountering a bug in the FNCS. Waffles killed a player who had used the infinite item glitch to receive an unlimited number of Crash Pads.

After the elimination, Waffles noticed massive stack of Crash Pads on the ground. As anyone would, he began to pick them up to investigate. To his dismay, he was unable to drop them and had to finish the game with no weapons or healing items – only an inventory full of Crash Pads.

Despite everything working against him, Waffles managed to finish third in the game. When he went back to the lobby, however, he saw that he was disqualified from the tournament and banned from competitive Fortnite for 30 days.

Despite all of the evidence showing that Waffles didn’t do this on purpose, Epic support told him that they were upholding his ban. That’s where the CarterPulse agency came in. They responded to one of Waffles’ tweets, telling him to reach out to them.

After that, they went to work contacting Epic Games and outlining the fact that Waffles never intentionally broke any of the rules – a condition for a fair ban. What’s more, the Fortnite competitive rules state that any player must play-out a game in which they encounter a bug, giving Waffles no choice in the situation.

A little over a day after CarterPulse got involved, Epic appeared to reverse their decision to ban Waffles. The pro tweeted, “I AM UNBANNED! THANK YOU @CarterPulse.”

According to other tweets by the agency, they stepped into the situation free of charge. “Anything for the community.” they wrote on Twitter.

CarterPulse also clarified that this was a small mistake within a great company. “Just would like everyone to realize that Epic is a great company who makes mistakes like all of us. Happy to have helped @WafflesFN in getting unbanned!” they wrote.

The unbanning comes just in time for the second week of FNCS qualifiers. Waffles will be able to compete in the next qualifying event and, with any luck, will move onto the grand finals.

Send the Coral Buddies to space with this secret Fortnite challenge

Help the Coral Buddies join the astronaut from Craggy Cliffs with this secret Fortnite challenge.



Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3 brought us a list of secret challenges that involve the Coral Buddies. This group seems to be doing a lot better than they were at the beginning of the season, as they’ve now expanded and build a Coral Castle on top of the massive Whirlpool to the north of Sweaty Sands.

Attentive players have already helped bring the Coral Buddies into the Wood and Brick phases of development, but Season 3 Week 8 brought a new challenge to the game: giving them the materials they need to launch a rocket into space.

You can find the group of Coral Buddies where they’ve always been – outside of the lighthouse in the northwest corner of the map. Here’s an old picture of where their island was, but it’s still accurate.

The rocket requirement is only 100 metal, but you’ll need to gather it before hitting the island. There doesn’t appear to be any metal sources around them, which is part of the reason that they need our help to begin with.

The Coral cosmonauts have already started building the base for their rocket. All you have to do is walk up, give them some metal, and watch them finish the project.

Once you give the Coral Buddies what they need, they’ll build their rocket and take off into space – possibly in search of the old Chapter 1 map. Let’s hope they find what they’re looking for.

With this challenge and the crashed spaceship at Craggy Cliffs, Epic are pointing us to the stars. Could this have something to do with the rumored event and Season 4? Only time will tell.
