North American esports organization FaZe Clan have unveiled popular YouTuber ‘Thiefs’ as the newest member of their content creation team.

With close to 70K followers on Twitch and over 57K subscribers on YouTube, Thiefs joins FaZe as one of the biggest and well-known names in the Fortnite community.

The move was officially announced on August 7 via a post on the FaZe Clan Twitter page.

Included along with the announcement was a YouTube montage of some of the best moments and highlights from Thiefs’ Fortnite gameplay.

Although has just been officially announced, many in the community had already guessed that Thiefs was going to join FaZe, based on the fact that he had been playing Fortnite with several of the org’s members in the days leading up to the announcement.

Here is a video of Thiefs playing with FaZe’s Banks, Yelo, and Replays as a preview of perhaps what’s more to come in the future.

Thiefs is considered to be among the best players in the Fortnite community; he was a regular in the weekly ‘Friday Fortnite’ competitions, even winning it once.

However, despite his reputation, there has been no indication or announcements made that suggest he will be participating in official events as part of the FaZe pro roster.

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
