So ive recently noticed in Fortnite Battle Royale that I see some rather strange text that appears where it says how Players where eliminated, when... :

Player X has eliminated Player Y

However, I see some text that makes no sense and dosent explain how Player X was eliminated or makes no sense I see some text I have NO IDEA what they mean:

Player X played themselves > Explain how?

Player X checked out too early > No Idea

Player X 'sploded Player Y > What gun?

Can anyone explain me these weird kill indications?


player X 'sploded player Y

This means that they used an explosive weapon such as a rocket launcher or grenade launcher etc.

Player X played themselves

This means something along the lines of they took fall damage and died

player X checked out too early

This either means the same as above or they disconnected.

  • Also, from experience, checked out early means they left the game early or died early (like hitting water outside the island) – GamerM May 27 '18 at 14:13

    The bottom two appear to be interchangeable and can also happen if they die to a trap placed by a player who is no longer in the match. I vaguely recall seeing it when I died to a grenade thrown by a player, but they died before their grenade killed me. There is another similar one "Player X is literally on fire", which happens when a player dies to their own explosive weapon. – VanBuzzKill Jun 10 '18 at 1:21
