The owner of 100 Thieves, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, spoke to Dexerto after competing in the Fortnite Pro-Am tournament at E3.

The Pro-Am Celebrity Tournament took place on June 12th and gave away a total of $3,000,000 in prize money to the charities of choice for the competing duos.

Somewhat fittingly, it was the face of Fortnite Battle Royale, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, that eventually came out on top along with the music producer and DJ known as Marshmello.

Other notable names that competed included TSM’s Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani, OpTic Gaming’s Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, who finished in second place, Ali-A, and Nadeshot.

Nadeshot was playing with the UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and had some moments of brilliance but ultimately finished outside of the top 10 after being eliminated by fellow 100 Thieves star Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff in the final game.

Speaking to Dexerto after the conclusion of the competition, Nadeshot discussed how it felt to die to at the hands of NICKMERCS, how much he had enjoyed the event, and how killing the solo winner, NoahJ456, in the final duo game makes him the real solo champion.

Nadeshot has made it clear in recent months that he is enjoying Fortnite Battle Royale a great deal and 100 Thieves even announced their new professional Fortnite team on June 9th.

The Pro-Am tournament was a huge success and once again proved that Fortnite is here to stay for the foreseeable future.


How to do secret Cleanse Tanks & Escape Fortnite Season 4 challenges

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

The tanks are side-by-side, although they’ll look more green and gnarly compared to the picture above.


Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
