Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Epic Games had canceled the highly anticipated 2020 Fortnite World Cup. Naturally, this disappointed pros and fans around the world immensely.

Bugha and Clix accuse Mackwood of stream sniping in Fortnite pro scrims

It all began when Bugha and Clix accused former TSM pros Mackwood and Khanada of constantly stream sniping them during scrims. The matter aggravated when both the pros made similar claims during the latest FNCS yet again.

As expected, Mackwood and Khanada outright rejected the allegations put on them. Furthermore, Mackwood commented on Bugha’s massive ego since he won the inaugural Fortnite World Cup.

In return, Bugha talked about how Mackwood’s teams always spray his trio for no reason. As per the World Cup winner, such incidents are not unique, but happen in every other custom game he plays.

In a recent video, YouTuber Fortnite Moments covered the latest interaction between Clix, Bugha and Bizzle during a scrim.
