100 Thieves' new Fortnite superstar MrSavage took home first place at the massive DreamHack Anaheim ft. Fortnite event.
Following the recent launch of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2, a $250,000 solos tournament took place at this year's DreamHack Anaheim event, featuring some of the esport's biggest names.
Played from February 21-23 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California, this $250,000 competition saw Fortnite players from around the world, both known and unknown, face off for the ultimate prize.
DreamHack Anaheim Fortnite final placements
The Grand Final was the third stage of this tournament, featuring the 100 players who managed to survive the gauntlet of qualifiers in the first two stages.
After eight matches, World Cup qualifier MrSavage, who recently signed with 100 Thieves, finished in first place, taking home $35,000. He was followed in second by Ghost Gaming's Bizzle, who won $15,000, and free agent player Nanolite, who claimed $13,750
The competition wasn't without some late drama, as MrSavage actually had to pull off an incredibly epic clutch to win the final match, which gave him just enough points to sit atop the leaderboard once it was all said and done.
