FaZe Clan finally adds FunkBomb to its Fortnite pro ranks
FaZe Clan has finally unveiled Trevor ‘FunkBomb’ as the newest addition to their Fortnite team, linking up with his former duo partner Nate Hill.
The North American esports organization announced the new signing on their official Twitter account, presenting their fans with the newest pro Fortnite player – ‘FaZe FunkBomb’.
FaZe Clan first announced a Fortnite team in March and has achieved some great success on the tournament scene of late, with Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney scooping first place twice at the Solos Fall Skirmish Series NA event – both in week two and four. Tenney collected two prizes of $37,500 for those wins.
In Duos, FaZe finished in top spot at Twitchcon’s Fall Skirmish Series Week 6, with Tfue and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore scooping a $400,000 prize at the San Jose Convention Center.
A Duo United.
