Fortnite is the world's most popular video game these days and plenty of Redskins players partake in the phenomenon.
Adonis Alexander, for example, was on the sticks when the 'Skins took him in the supplemental draft. Then there's Derrius Guice, who streams himself on Twitch as he works through the battle-royale style action.
Yet, despite having teammates close by in the locker room who'd surely be down to join up with him, Trey Quinn has no interest in getting online with other members of the Burgundy and Gold. Why?
Because they aren't as good as him.
"I've never seen LeBron go down to the G League and play a game before, so you're not gonna see me play with those guys," Quinn said, completely seriously, after a training camp practice in Richmond. "I keep it pro-level. My expertise is so crisp that I can't be sidetracked by something like that."
It's a shame he isn't more confident, isn't it?
The last pick of the 2018 NFL Draft has always acquitted himself well with shooters, so the transition to Fortnite has gone quite smoothly. Essentially, he didn't even need to plug in his controller for a recharge before he reached legendary status.
"I'm gonna be humble right here," he said. "Through trial and error, over and over, the hours I've put in, the blood, sweat and tears on the sticks, it took maybe an hour? Then I was just a god."
Everyone approaches a match differently, and for Quinn, whether he's playing solo, duos or squads (the latter two often involve his younger brother, Carter), he prefers to keep it aggressive. Once he takes off from the Battle Bus, the wide receiver typically lands at Tilted Towers or Greasy Grove, places that get crowded and produce carnage quickly.
As for his inventory, the SMU product is versatile: he is skilled with pumps and SMGs but is most deadly with the hunting rifle, a weapon that requires extreme accuracy. When Jay Gruden referred to Quinn as a "quiet assassin" earlier this offseason, he likely had no idea how correct that statement was.
And, as you'd imagine from someone who compares himself to the king of the NBA, the 22-year-old has a scary amount of career victories. While some go days or weeks without finishing first, Quinn has done it so many times that putting a number on it is just not worth attempting to do.
"After the first two hours of playing, I lost count," he said. "It's one of those things that it doesn't even take me the typical 20 minutes to win a game. It's almost like a nuke in the old Call of Duty. As soon as we jump off the Battle Bus, the game ends."
