Since Fortnite‘s resurgence, Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins has seen a massive resurgence on the streaming platform, and went viral with an incredible trick shot using a Shockwave Grenade.
Ninja, Twitch’s original superstar, has returned to the top. With the removal of buildings, the 30-year-old streamer has seen a significant increase in viewership, as he’s been broadcasting a lot of the Battle Royale since the changes.
Now, he’s gone viral after hitting an insane shot that ended the match. When he won the round for his squad, the streamer was live playing Fortnite with SypherPK and CouRage.
Ninja was on top of the hill near The Fortress when he launched himself up high with a Shockwave Grenade, then landed above the final opponent and blasted them away with the Striker Pump Shotgun.
Shockwave Grenades can lift players into the air, and they’re one of the few items left in the game that can help players gain an advantage over their opponents.
As Ninja shouted, the clutch shot ended the round and pumped up the entire team.
Chapter 3 Season 2 of Fortnite has received high praise from Blevins, but he believes Epic Games needs to “cater” to no-build players in order to keep the game relevant. The company heeded Ninja’s call and has since added Zero Build mode to the game as a permanent feature.
Despite the fact that his own teammate Sypher criticized the mode, saying it “needs more” to be a long-term game mode, it has undoubtedly aided the Battle Royale’s comeback.
