Even though fans around the world love these pros for their capabilities, it seems like they do not feel the same about each other. It all started when the trio of Bugha, Clix, and Bizzle faced Bucky, MackWood, and Khanada in the ongoing FNCS qualifiers. Following a sweaty battle, Bucky, MackWood and Khanada emerged victorious.

Clix was streaming the entire event, and surprisingly, he and Bugha wasted no time in accusing the former TSM pros of stream sniping. Bugha also bashed MackWood on Discord, which he later posted on Twitter.

2 months ago

While replying to some of MackWood’s tweets, Bugha claimed that this was not an unique incident. In fact, MackWood, Khanada and Bucky constantly stream snipe Bugha’s trios during scrims. The World Cup winner also opened up on how MackWood’s team sprays his trio in almost every custom game.

ask any trio ive ever played with and there have been multiple instances where you guys will spray us for the entire game with no reasoning it’s not just a coincidence at this point

Were the Fortnite pros actually streaming sniping?

Bugha won the inaugural Fortnite World Cup, and is considered one of the best, if not best, players in the community ever since. Similarly, Clix has been one of the few pros to consistently quality for all the major tournaments.

However, this does not imply that MackWood, Khanada, and Bucky do not have the skill set to beat Bugha and Clix in a fair fight. Having played for organizations like TSM, they have also had illustrious careers as professional Fortnite players.

Soon after the serious allegations, MackWood defended himself by uploading a clip from his perspective.

MackWood’s perceptive clearly shows that his trio wasn’t stream sniping and was taking a fair fight. Regardless, supporters of Bugha and Clix do not seem satisfied with the evidence.
