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.

Epic Games have had four of their upcoming Fortnite bundles leaked following the v14.30 update, but it’s unclear if this is all that’s coming with the Fortnitemares Halloween event. 

The game’s developers have arguably been a little slower than usual for rolling out new content in the battle royale title, yet we are quickly approaching a busy time of year for the game – the festive season.

In the weeks and months ahead, we can expect to see a full-blown Halloween event, coupled by their holiday challenges and updates.

For now, though, we’ll just have to settle for a few bundles here and there to keep the game ticking over. Some of them look impressive nonetheless.

Fortnite has been given a big shakeup in recent times, and more bundles are coming.

Fortnite leaked bundles from v14.30 update

Following the rollout of the game’s latest patch, which saw the introduction of a Rally Royale LTM and gave the Pump Shotgun a big buff, leakers were quickly hard at work finding unreleased content.

On October 13, ShiinaBR hit the jackpot with four different bundles – as seen below.

They include Daredevil’s red skin, as well as previously released Halloween skins that will likely return to the Item Shop.

The data miner didn’t put an expected release date on any of these bundles, or prices for that matter, but their introduction to the game files suggests players won’t have to wait long before they are made available to use in-game.

As mentioned earlier, Halloween is just around the corner for the community, so we should expect even more weird and wonderful skins to be released in the near future.

If it goes down anything like this patch, they will probably be leaked ahead of time as well – so keep your eyes peeled.
