How old is FaZe H1ghSky1? Tfue allegations about underage streamer reportedly confirmed

Reports appear to have confirmed that FaZe Clan Fortnite Battle Royale player and streamer H1ghSky1 is in fact under the age of 13.

H1ghSky1 joined FaZe Clan on March 22, 2019, at which point FaZe claim he was 13 years old. According to a report by Upcomer, however, the player was only 11 at that time, and is now 12 at the time of writing.

The Upcomer report states that posts by H1ghSky1’s family in 2012 refer to his fifth birthday, while another post from the same year refers to him as being five years old. These posts would suggest H1ghSky1 was a month short of his 12th birthday when he signed with FaZe.

The subject of H1ghSky1’s true age surfaced as part of Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s lawsuit against the organization, which alleged that the player was only 11 at the time of joining and that FaZe Clan had pressured he and his family to lie about his age, which FaZe claimed was 13.

This signing is alleged by the lawsuit to be in violation of California Labor Code section 1700.36, which states that “no talent agency shall accept any application for employment made by or on behalf of any minor”.

Outside of the ongoing lawsuit, however, H1ghSky1’s age could have additional consequences. Participating in Epic Games-sanctioned Fortnite Battle Royale events has a minimum age requirement of 13 years old, as does streaming on YouTube or becoming a Twitch partner.

Should those platforms also determine H1ghSky1 to be under the age of 13, it could spell the end of any Fortnite World Cup ambitions – although he is not currently qualified for the event – as well as threaten his Twitch channel, which currently has over 400,000 followers.

FaZe Clan vs Tfue

The revelation comes as another blow against FaZe Clan in the battle of public perception surrounding their ongoing legal dispute.

The lawsuit primarily alleges that Tfue’s own contract is “oppressive”, with claims that FaZe Clan have the right to claim up to 80% of revenue from brand deals apparently proven correct after the contract was leaked.

However, the lawsuit also attacks FaZe on a number of other fronts, including the signing of H1ghSky1 as well as allegedly jeopardizing the health, safety, and welfare of its members.

FaZe and H1ghSky1 have yet to respond to the allegations. Dexerto has reached out to both parties for comment.

Fortnite update 14.60: early patch notes, downtime details

Fortnite’s next Chapter 2 Season 4 update, patch 14.60, is expected to arrive this week, though fans are still waiting for Epic Games to officially announce its arrival. Here’s all the details we have so far, including patch notes, and more.

This week should bring the final Fortnite update of Season 4; one focused on the impending arrival of Marvel supervillain Galactus, and the long-teased ‘Nexus War’ finale.

Epic Games hasn’t announced the new update just yet, but we’ve got a pretty good idea of everything coming in patch v14.60 anyway ⁠— starting with when the next Fortnite update will actually be deployed onto the battle royale’s live servers.

When is the Fortnite 14.60 patch coming?

The next Fortnite patch hasn’t actually been officially locked in, but the Nov. 18 update seems to have been leaked early by the battle royale’s competitive arm.

According to @FortniteCompetitive on Twitter, the Venom Cup has been delayed in Asia and Oceania “due to the 14.60 patch.” While the competitive social media account didn’t mention dates, the fact the tournament has been delayed speaks volumes.

Dexerto can predict we’ll likely see Fortnite update v14.60 deployed around 4am ET on either Wednesday or Thursday (Nov. 18 or 19) this week, pending confirmation.

Fortnite 14.60 early patch notes

Galactus arrives

With Fortnite patch 14.60 being the last update before the end of Season 4, that can only mean one thing; Galactus is finally going to arrive, and kick-start the Nexus War.

Dexerto is expecting to see plenty of Galactus and Nexus War assets and elements added to Fortnite this patch. This will either be in-game ⁠— depending on how early Epic wants to add a few teasers ⁠— or in the code ahead of Season 4’s big day.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is expected to end on Thursday, December 3.

Season-end events usually take place on the weekend, with Saturday the most likely. That means we should see the Galactus event happen on Nov. 28.

Slurp Bazooka

The ‘Slurp Bazooka,’ similar to the infamous Bandage Bazooka, is expected to be added in Fortnite update 14.60. The new heavy weapon was leaked by HYPEX soon after v14.40 in October, and appears to be ready to be released in-game.

The new bazooka will likely operate in a similar fashion to its Bandage cousin. The Slurp Bazooka will probably fire Fortnite’s iconic Slurp Juice, which heals one health point every 0.5 seconds, up to a total of 75. The bazooka may simply heal.

The main difference is that Slurp worked on shields as well, where Bandages only restore health. This may be the case of the bazooka as well. The new gun will likely also take up a number of weapon slots, just like the Bandage Bazooka.

Fortnite 14.60 bug fixes

As per usual, the Fortnite team has also added a number of bugs and issues to their official Trello board. This week’s patch actually only has a few fixes included but will cover the battle royale, Creative mode, and even Save the World.

Here is the full list of bug fixes coming in v14.60:

General

  • Disabled voice chat cannot be re-enabled on Xbox Series X/S.
  • ‘Lock Input Method as Mouse’ does not lock the input method.

Battle Royale

  • Doctor Doom’s Mystical Bomb disabled in competitive playlists.

Creative Mode

  • Team Size setting does not properly function when Join In Progress is set to Join Next Round.

Save the World

  • Wild West Llama not granting Steampunk weapon.

So, there you have it! That’s our early patch notes with expected changes and fixes coming in Fortnite’s v14.60 update patch. Once the official details are released and added to the game, we’ll be the first to let you know.
