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.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
