100 Thieves continues the whirlwind of signings by adding another Fortnite pro to the roster, this time it’s 15-year-old Arkhram and he will now bump the number of World Cup qualified players on the roster to three.

The year 2019 has been very kind to esports organization 100 Thieves as they’ve added several big names to the roster.

While the loss of Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff stung, 100T was able to offset that with the additions of Jack ‘CouRageJD‘ Dunlop, content creation team The Mob, and now Arkhram.

The 15-year-old pro is one of the top players in Fortnite and will represent a major signing for them going forward if they want to continue to make a name for themselves in the Fortnite community.

Valkyrae and CouRage are mainly signed on as content creators while Ceice, Elevate and now Arkhram will be relied on for their pro skills. Ceice and Elevate have both qualified for the World Cup, with Ceice qualifying for both Duos and Solos.

100 Thieves announced the signing in a tweet.

“Welcome Arkhram1x to 100 Thieves,” the tweet says. “Arkhram is one of the few players in NA West to double qualify for the Fortnite World Cup. We’re excited to see him represent us at the finals in NY!”

Before signing with 100 Thieves, Arkhram was making a name for himself in the community due to his strong play in tournaments and by playing with Dr Disrespect during Fortnite Friday. 

He still has a way to go before he becomes a household name but if he continues on this path he’ll get there.

The Fortnite World Cup Finals run July 27-28 for Duos and Solos respectively.

How to find Fortnite Season 3’s Fortilla key and open the Vault

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 flooded the entire map after Midas activated the Device—but now players get their turns to flood something of their own: their inventories with loot stolen from the Fortilla Vault.

Chapter 2, Season 3 changed Fortnite’s map drastically, in one of the biggest revamps ever for the game, namely by washing away most of the game’s northwestern points of interest and sliding in the Fortilla, a brand new set of islands in the southwestern quadrant.

Aside from wanting an excuse to travel to a new destination, players can now be additionally motivated to explore the Fortilla because they can defeat a boss, obtain a keycard, and then reap the benefits of boundless, formerly vaulted loot.

Fortnite’s Season 3 map, a flooded masterpiece with some intriguing additions.

South of Holly Hedges and west of Rickety Rig, you’ll find the Fortilla: a set of small islands surrounded by about five larger islands—all covered with structures resembling a tropical shanty town.

How to open Fortilla Vault

  1. Drop at the Fortilla in Fortnite Season 3
  2. Scour the area for Ocean
  3. Eliminate Ocean
  4. Pick up Ocean’s Fortilla Keycard (and other loot)
  5. Follow the Keycard’s directions to find and unlock the vault!

 

As mentioned by YouTube’s ‘Gamerz World,’ the best way to find Ocean is to glide around on one of the map’s boats and listen for her because she’s a talker.

Once you defeat Ocean, you’ll get three great pieces of loot: Ocean’s Burst Assault Rifle, Ocean’s Bottomless Chug Jug, and the ever-important Fortilla Keycard.

The Chug Jug is a nasty item, as it gives you full health and shields (and offers free refills). The gun is also mighty strong, but not nearly as exciting as the keycard, which will grant you directions and access to the Vault.

When you have the Fortilla Keycard selected from your inventory, the game will show you arrows towards the Vault. Follow those directions, make it to the Vault, and, voila, loot as far as the eye can see. 

The new Fortilla Vault is the latest in the game since Catty Corner’s Vault was discovered. While you got some sick loot from that one, nothing is quite as quenching as Ocean’s bottomless Chug Jug.
