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?

1 Answer 1


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)

    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. Jun 10, 2018 at 1:21
