During a recent stream, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins caught a Fortnite hacker in action and broadcast a fragment of their gameplay for the world to see.
Hacking and Stream Sniping has plagued Fortnite for some time with players calling on Epic Games to act and make changes. Men, hackers have still been able to affect games – even getting the best of Fornite’s pro scene.
On November 24, FaZe Clan’s Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was hit by a hacker during a Winter Royale qualifying game. Since then, a number of hackers have received bans and now, Ninja has caught another in action – reporting them for hacking in the hopes that they are banned too.

Even his face of Fortnite and Twitch runs into hackers.
During his December 15 stream, Ninja – who was dead in a game – watched on in disbelief as the hacker began to deal with damage to players they could barely see.
The former Halo professional turned streamer left the game after watching the hacker get a Kill on a player at Dusty Divot, who was not visible to Ninja’s stream while shooting from over 100 meters away.
On the same stream, Ninja also called on Epic Games to help end the stream’s sniping epidemic that has plagued some of Fortnite’s biggest streamers. Men, han er ikke sikker på om et firma vil være ever to combat snipe snipers.
Ninja had been playing a squad’s game before his team was pounced on – outside the closing circle – by an apparent group of stream snipers. After leaving the game, the former Halo professional said: “Listen man, if there’s anyone who can come up with a creative way to counteract stream sniping, it’s epic.”
