Fortnite Battle Royale, the professional player believes the game is in its worst ever state.

The popular Twitch streamer had already made it clear that he doesn’t really want to play the battle royale game anymore, but during his May 14 broadcast he took his criticisms to a whole other level. 

FaZe Tfue, one of the most winningest esports players in terms of prize money, made it clear that he believes the game’s Season 9 meta is worse than any other he has seen before, in a frustrated rant about the game.

FaZe ClanTfue has had a lot to say about Fortnite Season 9 so far…

“I enjoy playing it but I definitely think it’s the worst meta that’s ever existed,” the streamer said, seemingly deflated. “It’s worse than anything I could have imagined. It’s worse than when the Tommy Gun came out the first time.”


As Tfue mentioned, the Drum Gun – or Tommy Gun as it’s widely referred to – made its return after winning a fan vote during Season 8’s final Unvaulting event.

The move has been widely criticized by pro players and streamers, with Ninja also asking Epic Games to vault the weapon in a tweet on May 15. 

“Played the new patch for 90 minutes today and I’m going to say it… Vault the Drum Gun,” he posted.

Will Tfue change his mind? 

The chances of Tfue quitting Fortnite Battle Royale altogether in the near future is highly unlikely, though, despite the negative comments he’s made about its current state. In fact, on May 15 he seemed to have showed some support to the changes made by Epic Games in the v9.01 patch, where the Drum Gun and The Baller faced further nerfs. 


He, and many other pro players, will be hoping that the developer makes further tweaks to gameplay in due course. Yet, there is no suggestion that more significant changes to the current meta are in the works, as of the time of writing.
