When it comes to Fortnite, the biggest streamer out there is Ninja. Ninja, whose real name is Tyler Blevins, has spoken out about the lifetime ban handed down by Epic Games to FaZe Jarvis Khattri, a fellow professional Fortnite player who's more of a creator type. Ninja feels like a permanent ban is too harsh for a professional gamer. Jarvis wasn't caught using aimbot cheats in a professional match or tournament; he was banned for using a cheat in a regular match while making a video. Ninja said in one of his streams that Jarvis was a "stupid kid" who made a "stupid decision" and that he feels a permanent ban is "just silly." Ninja said at one point in the stream that content creators like Jarvis... Read more...
Fortnite has been massively popular title for gamers both young and old (and everyone in between), and has been a huge money generator for its developer, Epic Games. Fortnite is also very lucrative for the professional players who excel at the game and compete in various tournaments. Epic takes cheating very seriously in Fortnite, even if the cheating doesn't occur in competitive modes or during major tournaments. However, one professional gamer from FaZe Clan has found this out the hard way after he uploaded videos of himself using a cheat. The gamer is Jarvis, and he uploaded videos of himself playing the game to his YouTube channel. The uploading of the videos and the use of the cheat software... Read more...
Epic Games likes to hold Fortnite special events to celebrate holidays, and one of the traditional celebrations is Fortnitemares for Halloween. Epic tweeted that this year's Fortnitemares event kicks off at 9 AM ET today. That is several hours later than when Fortnite usually adds updates, which is nice because it prevents players from having to stay up late or get up early. It's hard for Fortnite to keep any secrets these days with people combing through the game code to find hints at what is coming. As for what is expected in the event this year, it will likely follow the same pattern as Fortnitemares in years past. That will mean a smattering of skins and new cosmetic items, which...

Fortnite Chapter 2 was recently released and featured several changes and surprises for longtime fans. Epic Games teased the new chapter with a few trailers, but several trade secrets were also revealed by a leaker. Epic Games has decided to sue the former employee that leaked information about Fortnite Chapter 2. Epic Games has filed a civil lawsuit against former employee Ronald Sykes with the District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. Sykes was a “User Experience” tester and was able to play Fortnite Chapter 2 before it was released to the public. Sykes tweeted on his main account that he had “played S11 and can tell you the new stuff”. He then proceeded... Read more...
Fortnite fans have been enjoying Chapter 2 along with the new map and challenges that came with it. New challenges have landed, and one of them has players hiding out in spots around the map to jump out and kill your opponents. The ability to utilize hideouts is a new mechanic in Chapter 2, and Epic Games wants people to use it. For the challenge, all you have to do is slink out into the environment and find either a dumpster or a bale of hay and hide. To use one of the hideouts, all players need to do is find one, walk up to it, and then interact with it. There are multiple hideouts around the map.  Players will need to hide in a hideout in three different matches to complete the challenge.... Read more...
Things have been rather strange in Fortnite as of late, with Season 10 ending in a bizarre black hole that kicked players out of the game for a long while. When the game finally came back, Fortnite Chapter 2 was born like the big bang, with a completely new map and of course the challenges continue. The first of the new challenges for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1, is to find the letter "F" as the first step in an ongoing challenge to collect all the letters needed to spell "Fortnite." As with Fortnite challenges in past seasons, the hardest part of the new challenge is finding the letter. Finding it is also doubly-difficult, when you consider the map is entirely new. The good news is that if... Read more...
After more than a day of downtime, the black hole in Fortnite has closed, the servers have been flipped back on, and Chapter 2 is now live. The second chapter brings with it a fresh map to explore with more than a dozen new locations (or exactly a baker's dozen, if you prefer), new weapons and vehicles, and...fishing! Wait, fishing? Yes! Water is not in short supply in Chapter 2 with a bunch of lakes spread about, and so there are plenty of opportunities to hop in a motorboat, swim, catch fish, and basically get your feet wet on the new map (figuratively and literally). Epic Games is taking somewhat of a gamble by casting the old map into the ether and herding millions of players into the new... Read more...
Earlier today, we reported that Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1 is set to kick off tomorrow morning, aka Taco Tuesday. We’ve previously seen a few grainy images concerning what to expect from this new chapter including an all-new map and boats for players to ride in. Now, we’re getting a relatively extensive look at the game courtesy of a leaked trailer that found its way to the internet via a tweet (before being swiftly deleted). The trailer confirms that this is an all new map complete with a fishing pond, a waterfall, a river (which we saw in the previous leak), and the aforementioned boats. The boats especially look wicked cool with room for four players. There also appears... Read more...
Over the weekend, Fortnite in its entirety was sucked into a black hole, leaving everyone clamoring for when they’d be able to rejoin one of the most popular games on the planet. Logging into the game currently only displays a black hole, and all of Epic Games’ social media accounts have gone radio silent. The only thing left for gamers to do is to play a minigame that is activated with the Konami Code. But Epic can’t leave gamers in a lurch for too long – the software developer is going to need to bring Fortnite back online sometime soon. Thanks to some super sleuthing by hardcore enthusiasts, we have an idea of when the game will return. Fortnite gaming extraordinaire... Read more...
Fortnite is currently in flux, as the 'The End" event has resulted in the entire map and all the contents therein being sucked into a mysterious black hole. Players aren't able to access the Fortnite servers, and you can't play or communicate with your friends. Epic has drained all of fun out of room... or has it? As it turns out, the developers have created a little mini game to tide you over until the Fortnite comes back online, and accessing it is very familiar to old school gamers. You can access the pretty cool mini game by inputting the infamous Konami Code at the black hole screen using the D-Pad on your console or the keyboard on your PC. If you do the Konami code, you...

Fortnite gamers know that the end is near for Season 10, and a big event involving the visitor and the rocket is expected to bring the close of the season soon. Before the end of the season, there is still time to get the secret white Scientist skin, but it takes some work.

Well, Fortnite fans, it was a good run but the end is nigh. What will you play next? Just kidding, Fortnite is not actually closing shop—Epic Games would have to be bonkers to turn its back on Fortnite, given how lucrative its free-to-play baby has grown to become. However, there is a season event called "The End" that is en route. Donald Mustard, the Worldwide Creative Director at Epic Games, teased the event on Twitter by changing his location to The End. Check it out... It's a subtle hint, but certainly not random—Mustard often teases Fortnite events on his Twitter account, and that is precisely what he is doing here. Looking back, Fortnite has a history of closing out seasons... Read more...
Video games are supposed to be fun, and can be a great way to relieve stress and connect with friends in person and online. One of the most popular video games on the market today is Fortnite from Epic Games. Unfortunately, Epic is facing a lawsuit in Canada that is seeking class-action status. The lawsuit alleges in-part that Epic made Fortnite too addicting, with its developers specifically targeting young children. The lawsuit was filed by a Montreal legal firm on behalf of the parents of two minors, age 10 and 15. Documents in the lawsuit liken Fortnite to cocaine, noting that much like the narcotic drug, Fortnite releases the chemical dopamine in the brain and then kids can become dependent... Read more...
Developer Epic Games is well aware of the complaints over the new matchmaking system it recently introduced to Fortnite, in an attempt to pit players against each other based on skill level regardless of which platform they are playing on. But just because Epic Games hears the complaints does not mean major changes are headed to Fortnite. Instead, Epic Games is willing to engage in ongoing conversations over last week's update. "With the rollout, we’ve seen a lot of discussion about potentially unfair competitive advantages from pooling players together across platforms and input devices. The new matchmaking system, however, accounts for various skill levels across different platforms and... Read more...
