Nadeshot’s 100 Thieves organization has finally announced its newest member, confirming the addition of Fortnite streamer and competitive player MrSavage.

100 Thieves has been rapidly expanding their venture, combining apparel, esports, and personalities to creating one of the most popular brands in gaming.

They already represent the likes of CouRage, Yassou, Valkyrae, BrookeAB and ‘The Mob’, and have now added MrSavage to their ranks.

There had been speculation that the newest member of their streaming crew would be Fortnite pro and former FaZe Clan member Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore.

But, on February 20, the organization surprised many in the community by announcing MrSavage instead. Previously a pro player for NRG, the Norwegian 15-year-old has grown fast on Twitch and YouTube over 2019 and into 2020.

Now boasting over 1 million subscribers/followers on both platforms, he is certainly a star in the making, and exactly the right fit for 100 Thieves.

As well as being a content creator, he is a highly-skilled competitive player. He placed 14th in World Cup duos event, alongside Benjyfishy, netting $100,000, and 29th overall in the solo tournament.

It’s unclear if he plans to represent 100 Thieves more in a competitive manner, or focus purely on content creation. Perhaps he will try to balance his disciplines equally.

Why join 100 Thieves?

He explains that one of the main reasons he joined 100 Thieves was because of the family atmosphere. Additionally, staying at the Cash App compound in California gets him better practice, as “NA practice is way better,” so clearly he still has a passion for the competitive side of Fortnite, as well as being a creator.

He also explained that he is looking forward to creating content with the other members, and hopes that 2020 will be his “best year yet.”

For Nadeshot and 100 Thieves, 2020 is also set to be a massive year. They opted not to join the Call of Duty, despite the founder’s history in the esport, due to the massive entry cost, but are spending their investment wisely elsewhere.

Their League of Legends team is hoping to reverse the abysmal 2019 they had, and Fortnite and CS:GO are other games where success lies in wait. But, the company is equally focused on their apparel, and are now making serious strides in the content department now too.

How to defeat The Mandalorian in Fortnite Season 5: Mythic Item locations

The Mandalorian has burst onto the scene in Fortnite Season 5 with brand new Mythic Items – a Star Wars inspired jetpack and weapon – leaving players wondering how to get ahold of them in-game. 

In previous seasons, these Mythic weapons and items have been guarded by fierce non-playable characters known as bosses. These are much harder to take down than the average player in Epic Games‘ battle royale title and often have henchman by their side to protect the valuable loot they hold.

Luckily for you, in Season 5 it’s not as difficult as times gone by – because there’s not as many of them to tackle. In fact, getting ahold of The Mandalorian Mythic set is pretty easy if you know where to look. All you have to do is be the person that takes him down.

That’s what we’re going to help with.

Fortnite Season 5 Mythic weapon and item location

First of all, you’re going to have to know where to go.

The Mandalorian can be seen patrolling around one area of the map in Fortnite Season 5, and it’s just south of Colossal Coliseum, as seen in the map below. There, you will find not only the character but also his parked up ship.

At this location, he will be carrying both a Mythic weapon and jetpack. These can be obtained by taking him out, just like a bounty hunter.

Now you know where he is, it’s all about eliminating him as fast as possible.

Here’s the best way to defeat him:

  1. Drop from the Battle Bus at The Mandalorian’s ship, located between Colossal Coliseum and Lazy Lake.
  2. Land with a good distance between yourself and the ship.
  3. Pick up a weapon nearby.
  4. Reach high ground, which is actually a slope of sand near the ship.
  5. Use cover to protect yourself from his shots, or build, and by peeking out with your weapon keep firing at him.
  6. Collect the Mandalorian Mythic Items (Amban Sniper Rifle & The Mandalorian’s Jetpack) from the downed character.
  7. Head over to the ship and open the Razor Chest.

Do have in mind that this is the only known boss on the Fortnite Season 5 map, with others expected to join him, so it’s bound to be a popular landing spot. Not just that, but let’s face it, it is nice to just stop by to see a bit of a Star Wars crossover as well.

So, there you have it! That’s the quickest and safest way you’re going to be able to get ahold of that elusive Razor Chest in Fortnite Season 5.
