100 Thieves made two big splashes in Fortnite on November 16, adding streamers and pro players Falconer and Grandma to their ranks.

Prior to their official announcements, 100 Thieves teased earlier in the day that they were signing two new Fortnite pro players.

Just a couple hours later, after several wrong answers in the replies, 100 Thieves made the official announcements themselves, revealing the new players to be Falconer and Grandma.

Falconer has been a teammate of fellow 100T player Arkhram in the past, having finished fifth in duos together at the past Fortnite World Cup. The pair split a $900,000 prize. The 100 Thieves duo of Ceice and Elevate also did well at the World Cup, finishing in third in duos.

100 Thieves also added Grandma, also known as GrandmaTeets, who spent a considerable amount of time this year running Fortnite duos with singer Drake.

Over the past couple of weeks, 100 Thieves have made some massive additions across all of their esports divisions. They signed the former Renegades CSGO roster, who made their debut at IEM Beijing and reached the grand finals.

They also signed coach Tony ‘Zikz’ Gray, who brings championship experience to 100T after coaching TSM to back-to-back LCS championships in 2015 and 2016.

Their newest Fortnite additions will also bolster the number of streamers under the 100 Thieves banner, which was increased two weeks with the big-time signing of streamer BrookeAB.

100 Thieves streamer CourageJD shocked the streaming world earlier in the month when he announced he was moving to YouTube to stream exclusively.

For 100 Thieves, these steps forward are huge given the massive step back they had to take in August, when they announced that they would be moving away from the Call of Duty scene and not participating in the upcoming franchised Call of Duty League.
