Fortnite Battle Royale bug ruins Ninja’s World Cup qualifier match

Twitch’s favorite Fortnite streamer, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, was streaming his first match of the Fortnite Online Opens on May 11 when he was the victim of a bug that saw him eliminated before he even landed.

Ninja has been attempting to qualify for the Fortnite World Cup every weekend, but has fallen short every time. Fortnite Battle Royale has seen a few ‘instant death’ bugs around Neo Tilted along with with the inconsistent damage that the new combat shotgun deals.

Unfortunately for Ninja, he was the victim of a bug that saw him leaving the game before he had the chance to get started.

What happened to Ninja?

Ninja was looking to land near the pirate ship at Lazy Lagoon, as he was gliding towards the air from the south. Everything seemed fine until Ninja was suddenly plummeting to the ground, and he was eliminated at 99th place.

If you watch closely in the clip, it looks like the game processed Ninja landing on a tree – which was not the case. After he was eliminated and sent back to the lobby, he looked at the camera with a sly, sarcastic look on his face.

Bro, I have been playing and landing here for the last two months and that have never happened.

Why each game matters

According to the rules implemented by Epic Games, players have ten games to try and reach the most amount of points possible.

With Ninja’s quick elimination in game one, that could lead to a problem later on when a couple of points could have made a huge deal. We will find out if Ninja will be able to overcome the unfortunate glitch once the finalists from May 11’s qualifier are announced.
