Twitch sensation Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has shared some of his best gameplay secrets with fans, which he believes will allow them to take out some of the best Fortnite players around. The popular streamer, who has over 13.6 million followers on Twitch, once boasted the highest subscriber count on the streaming platform with 269,000 dedicated supporters paying a fee to his channel.
Now, though, Ninja has revealed the one key tactic that has allowed him to have the success he’s had on Fortnite’s battle royale game mode, opening up the opportunity for many of his fans to improve.
“In any game, any one shot kill item or weapon, dude, you want to master that,” Ninja revealed in an interview during his March 10 Twitch livestream from Poland.
“You want to know how you take out top players? You want to know how you take out all of the freaky people who are some of the best builders in the game and have the most amazing game sense?” he asked. “You snipe them in the face.”
‘One shot kill’ weapons have been right at the forefront of recent debate within Fortnite’s online community, particularly before the start of Season 8 where competitive players were seemingly boycotting the game for Apex Legends because Epic Games had not removed the “overpowered” Hand Cannon.
However, Ninja says that using a sniper is the most effective way of all to take out top players in the game’s battle royale mode, as you can hit them before they are able to build or heal up.
Is sniping really the best tactic to secure wins in Fortnite? He, at least, seems to think so.
