On February 26, 100 Thieves announced that they had signed ‘Teenage’ as their second ever full-time Apex Legends personality, who will serve as both a pro player and content creator.
While his presence on Twitter and content platforms like Twitch and YouTube has a lot of room to grow, Teenage certainly does not lack in the talent department when it comes to gaming, particularly in Apex Legends.
According to statistics provided by Apex Tracker, Teenage is currently 70th in the world on PC with 4,587 kills with the Wraith, has dealt over 975,000 damage (63rd), and hit 3,254 headshots (159th).
He was also part of the team that managed to get 41 eliminations in a single match of Apex Legends on February 16, good enough to be currently tied for the world record on PC.
Introducing our newest Apex Legends player, @Teenage.

As the tweet above mentions, Teenage is certainly a well-known name in the H1Z1 and Overwatch communities, having proved his dominance in both games.
His accolades in Overwatch are particularly impressive, none more so than becoming a rank #1 Widowmaker player.
He also was involved with Fortnite prior to jumping into Apex, and some of his best gameplay highlights can be seen in the montage below.
As mentioned previously, Teenage is the second Apex Legends signing that 100 Thieves have made in as many days, having made popular Destiny streamer Connor ‘Gigz’ White their first ever pro Apex player on February 25.
The two signings on back-to-back days is part of an overall trend from 100T to grow their presence in the battle royale scene, as the org also made several major additions to their pro roster for Fortnite just a few days before.
Of course, Apex Legends does not yet have an official esports scene, but the question of its potential existence has become a matter of when and not if.
Thus, orgs like 100 Thieves are already trying to bolster their pro rosters with top available talent, very similar to how many orgs were signing Fortnite players before it had its own esports scene.
