While roaming around Paradise Palm, Muselk discovered a player stuck off the side of a cliff. This is when Muselk discovered Chappadoodle struggling in a corner of the map. Chappadoodle had no materials to build and had no way to get out. Muselk decided to embark on a rescue mission, intending to help Chappadoodle by using his materials to create a path for them. Upon almost reaching the bottom of the pit, Muselk noticed that he was unable to build structures that low.

Muselk then thought of a master plan to use the roof of the All-Terrain Kart to help the player bounce onto the structure he created below. So Muselk climbs back to the top and tries to use the ATK to reach the bottom of the cliff.  Unfortunately, the rescue mission took an unexpected turn when Muselk accidentally killed Chappadoodle with the ATK during the process. In recognition of Muselk’s attempt and the unfortunate demise of Chappadoodle, Fortnite added a tombstone with rubber tires to immortalize the incident on the Chapter 1 map. But this was soon removed when the map changed in Chapter 2.
