FaZe Clan have revealed the newest member of their professional team for Fortnite: Battle Royale.
The powerhouse esports organization has announced BR player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney as the fourth member of FaZe Fortnite.
Tfue joins a star studded roster that also includes Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore, Thang ‘SpaceLyon’ Pham, and Brendan ‘Jaomock’ O’Brien.
The roster move was announced on April 30th via a post on the official FaZe twitter account, along with a clip introducing the new player and some of his best gameplay.
Tfue also had this to tweet out in reaction to the announcement of his move to the FaZe pro Fortnite team.
This sort of news was expected after former player Thomas ’72hrs’ Mulligan was released from the team days ago.
However, FaZe decided to have some fun with the roster changes, initially announcing that their new fourth was going to be popular YouTuber Bryan ‘RiceGum’ Le.
The joke was quite elaborate as FaZe, RiceGum, and the other players on the team all made some sort of post on social media about the surprising move, with the YouTuber even assuming the new name ‘FortGum.’
Unfortunately, as hilarious as it would have been, this new team was never to be as FaZe Clan announced FortGum’s retirement from professional Fortnite in a comical tweet.

Unexpectedly, Bryan "Fortgum" Le has retired from Esports. Congratulations to a decorated Professional.
