The owner of 100 Thieves, and a former OpTic Gaming star, Matther ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has made it clear that his organization is actively looking into picking up Fortnite players and content creators.

Nadeshot, an ex-Call of Duty professional, became the face of OpTic Gaming during the Black Ops 2 season thanks to his extremely popular YouTube and Twitch content and was a figurehead of the competitive scene until his retirement in 2015.

After departing from OpTic, he built his own organization known as 100 Thieves and he currently owns one of the coveted NA LCS slots in League of Legends – a well deserved one considering the fact that the team finished in second place in their very first split.

He doesn’t plan on stopping there, though, and it looks like his next goal is to secure the services of some of the top Fortnite Battle Royale players and streamers.

Following the announcement from Epic Games on May 21st, where they pledged to put a staggering $100,000,000 into competitive Fortnite prize pools for the 2018-19 season, organizations now have even more reason to begin investing in the massively popular game.

Nadeshot has already been playing and streaming a great deal of Fortnite recently but the prize pool announcement prompted him to take to Twitter and state that 100 Thieves are actively looking for both competitive players and streamers to join their growing brand.

It looks like 100 Thieves will be taking applications for various Fortnite related positions as Nadeshot even stated that players and content creators should reach out to him.

We hate to think how full the former Call of Duty star’s inbox will be after making a comment like that but we’re sure that he’ll find at least a few applicants that are worth pursuing.

With Epic Games now looking seriously into the competitive side of their game, the future looks bright for the top Fortnite Battle Royale players and the game itself.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 9 challenges

The ninth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 9 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
