Gaming superstar Ninja played a few rounds of Fortnite again after a long time and said this was the most fun he had had in a long time with the Battle Royale shooter.
A few years ago Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Fortnite were inseparable. The game quickly propelled the streamer to the top and shortly after that he was a world-famous superstar. He was probably one of the best Fortnite players in 2018. However, at the beginning of the year 2020, more and more complaints about hackers and some other problems in his beloved Battle Royale were heard from Ninja. Also, his belief that controller players have an advantage over keyboard and mouse players added to his frustration with the game. All in all, Fortnite just wasn't appealing enough for the streamer anymore, so he turned his attention to other games.
Besides negotiating his switch from Mixer back to Twitch, Ninja has been focusing on the new shooter from Riot Games, Valorant, in the last few months. He was very interested in the competition scene and even captained a team at the T1 x NSG Valorant showdown. SypherPK finally convinced him to return to the game.
Ninja Has a Good Time in Fortnite
The Marvel-based Season 4 is completely different from the previous seasons. It was the perfect time for Ninja to celebrate his comeback and rekindle his interest in the game. SypherPK was happy to teach him all the new features of the game. Ninja himself actually seemed uncertain about the game for the first time, something we had never seen before.
SypherPK was thrilled to show him Iron Man's Unibeam, Ant Manor, and a lot of other new things in the game. Ninja even expressed his appreciation for Season 4 when he jumped around after eating a Hopp Flopper. The duo won a number of games, and the returning veteran seemed to love each of them.
Although the mood was high, Sypher had a warning for the spectators who were completely overwhelmed by the return of Ninja Fortnite. "If the games were like this all the time, Ninja would certainly play a lot more Fortnite," he explained, "right now we're doing a pretty good job of avoiding stream snipers".
If the stream sniping problem occurs again, Ninja Fortnite will quit quickly once again. At the moment, however, he seems to be having fun.
Will Ninja Play More Fortnite in the Future?
In the end, Ninja enjoyed the Fortnite rounds of the duo.
In a tweet, Ninja confessed that he had a few "bad days" lately. He had felt a cloud of negativity around him during that period. All that changed when Sypher sent Ninja a text message asking him to play Fortnite together.
The biggest question everyone is asking at the moment is whether Ninja will continue to play and stream Fortnite. The fans certainly hope that's the case. After all, Ninja is still the streamer you think of first when you hear the word Fortnite.
