FaZe Clan have signed Tim ‘Bizzle’ Miller as the newest member of their Fortnite team, marking yet another major addition to the organization in 2020.

As it stands, FaZe is loaded to the brim with exceptional talent in the battle royale, including the likes of Nate Hill, Kyle ‘Mongraal’ Jackson, Soleil ‘Ewok’ Wheeler, and Trevor ‘Funk’ Siegler, just to name a few.

But the new signee is an instant crowning jewel in FaZe’s Fortnite empire, now that he’s joined the most talked about org in the world.

Bizzle “mutually parted ways” with his previous org Ghost Gaming on April 4, along with then-teammate and similar Fortnite All-Star ‘Aydan’ Conrad.

After FaZe announced the latest signing, Bizzle said that his new org contacted him “five minutes after” leaving Ghost.

Whether that’s an exaggeration or not is unclear, but it wouldn’t be surprising for FaZe – or any org for that matter – to move in on what was one of the hottest free agents in the Fortnite landscape.

Bizzle was on a tear at the tail-end of 2019, and that’s not including his top-30 finish at the inaugural World Cup Solo Finals. Though he didn’t place where he wanted to at the premier event, his performances lit up the matches throughout the World Cup.

FaZe’s montage for Bizzle highlighted the pro’s accolades including having the most top 5 finishes as well as the most match wins on LAN in Fortnite’s history.

His success has amounted to a whopping $593,125 total earnings from competing, according to Esports Earnings – a number he’ll now be looking to dwarf with his new team.

The Fortnite pro is no stranger to the allure and expectations that normally follow a FaZe member. He’s an incredibly accomplished competitor and an entertaining streamer; a natural fit to the world-renown org.

Bizzle joins Swagg as the latest members to sign with FaZe in recent weeks, as the content kings invest in more talent across their brand.

FaZe is only the second gaming org that Bizzle has been a part of and he’ll undoubtedly look to make an impact in the 2020 Fortnite competitive season.

Fortnite leakers have revealed a new mobility item called the “Broom Box” that could be the next feature added in Season 4, ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Fortnite has introduced plenty of unusual vehicles and other methods for players to get around the map, with the likes of ziplines, rifts, and more making their appearances in previous seasons.

However, another mode of transport could be on the way, with leaks now pointing to a new mobility item being added in the upcoming Fortnitemares update for Halloween.

The Fortnitemares event could see some new items added to the game.

Many of the changes made so far in Season 4 have been based around the Marvel characters and their unique abilities but, as Halloween is drawing closer, Epic Games are gearing up for the Fortnitemares event.

While little has been confirmed about the update, Fortnite leaker HYPEX has revealed that there is potential for a new “Broom Box” mobility item in the event after finding codenames in the game files.

The prominent leaker claimed that these brooms would be classed as a consumable, meaning that players might only have a limited time to fly on them compared to previous items like the hoverboard.

These brooms have been rumored to work in a similar way to the Lightsabers that were previously added to Fortnite, with a chest expected to appear on the map for players to collect the consumable item.

A new emote for the Fortnitemares event has also been leaked, with data miner FNBRUnreleased giving players an early look at the “Witch Way” animation, which features a magical broomstick.

While the upcoming mobility item will likely look a bit different from this emote’s animation, it still gives players a glimpse at what to expect from the new broomsticks.

As of now, it is still unclear just when this potential item will be added to Fortnite but with Halloween only weeks away, players won’t have to wait much longer to find out.
