This year 2019 is a bombing year for Fortnite. This famous battle royale just had its first World Cup championship in July. The fast development of this game has created a lot more room for young and new pro players of Fortnite. Even the solo champion of Fortnite World Cup - Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdorf – is still only 16 years old now. With so many teenagers becoming world-class celebs like that, toxic people now have more ways to mess up with those kids’ life.

We have seen Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdorf becoming the victim of many toxic franks right after he became the first solo champion of the Fortnite World Cup. After taking home the huge trophy in July this year, this kid has faced a lot of shitty things. But perhaps the most shameless and toxic frank aiming toward this kid was the time he got swatted.

For those who have not known, swatting is the action of pretending that there is an emergency situation so that the police and the SWAT team will arrive at that location, but that location is usually the livestreaming place of a famous streamer. The swatting incident of Kyle 'Bugha' Giersdorf was not a mess since the police officer who came to Bugha's house to check knew this Fortnite pro player, so nothing happened. But not all swatting incidents have a nice ending like that. In April, Tyler Barriss (26, from Los Angeles, California, USA) has been sentenced for 20 years in prison because his swatting action resulted in the death of one person (the streamer being swatted.)

With such a huge punishment for Tyler Barriss, we all believe that there will be no more swatting, but we are wrong. The newest swatting incident aimed at a young Fortnite pro player again. The victim, this time, was Cody “Clix” Conrod – a 14-year-old pro gamer. With incredible luck, nobody was damaged in this swatting incident.

Now once again, we have to say that this swatting thing needs to be stopped at once. There is nothing fun in that thing. Moreover, swatting teenager streamers is an extremely coward action to do, and it will certainly leave some mental consequences for those teenager streamers. Streamer Cody “Clix” Conrod has already had a quite terrible year when his Twitch account got hacked in August this year, and the hackers hosted a porn livestream on the Twitch account of this teenager.
