FaZe Clan has announced their newest signing who just so happens to be their youngest Fortnite pro ever.

FaZe Clan has quite the footprint in the Fortnite esports world with the like of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore paving the way.

However, the team is still growing its roster in Fortnite and on March 22 they added the youngest Fortnite pro ever to the roster.

The newest member of FaZe Clan is 13-year-old H1ghsky1, who actually had his signing leaked by TSM Myth on March 19.

“How’s FaZe Clan?” asked Myth before realizing his crucial mistake. “Wait, was it not announced yet? What I meant was, how’s phasing through builds?”

FaZe Clan celebrated the signing of H1ghSky1 by releasing a short video showing some of his highlights he has compiled as a Fortnite pro.

Many current members of FaZe Clan responded to the tweet congratulating H1ghSky1 on becoming the youngest member of the team ever.

Before the announcement, H1ghsky1 was already a partnered Twitch streamer so it’s not like he just came out of nowhere.

With this signing, you can probably look to see H1ghsky1 gain even more popularity as he’s undoubtedly one of the youngest Fortnite pros in the business right now.

FaZe Clan has shown a tendency to ignore how young a player is and focus more on their abilities in a game instead.

Earlier in March, FaZe recruited 15-year-old Sway to their team, who also had a sizable following before joining FaZe, including 488,000 subscribers on YouTube.

Perhaps most impressive is that Sway uses a controller on PC and still manages to hold his own against players using mouse and keyboard.

Epic Games has confirmed the Fortnite World Cup will be open to all players who are at least 13 years old which is why we might be seeing these new signings announced.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points

  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
