TSM player and popular streamer Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco couldn’t believe his eyes after a ridiculous glitch with a plane in Fortnite caused him to be eliminated suddenly.

The planes in Fortnite, officially known as the X-4 Stormwing, have been a controversial addition to the battle royale mode, as many players feel they are too powerful, thanks to their mounted guns.

However, not everyone dislikes the X-4 Stormwing. FaZe Clan’s Brendan ‘Jaomock’ O’Brien is one streamer who has come out in support of the plane, particularly in competitive play.

One thing everyone can agree upon though, is that any glitches arising from these planes should be fixed – such as this insane glitch which gave Daequan no chance of survival.


The rear of plane appeared to be stuck inside a wooden build, and as the popular streamer jumped on the wing to enter the pilot’s seat, he immediately lost all of his health.

The kill feed simply reads: ‘TSM_Daequan forgot to set the parking brake’. The pro player stood up from his chair, angered, before exclaiming: “this game’s trash bro!”

It turns out that Daequan wasn’t the only popular Fortnite player to suffer this game breaking bug either; fellow streamer Ali ‘SypherPK’ Hassan fell victim to a similar fate.

Again, it looks like the glitch was caused by the plane being trapped inside a wooden structure, at which point the body of the aircraft turned into a death trap.


Hopefully, now that two well-known Fortnite players have experienced the glitch while streaming, developers Epic Games will be aware of the issue and working on a fix soon.
