Storied North American esports organization Team Envy has announced the signing of four competitive Fortnite players, their first professional roster.

Team Envy had already shown interest in the Fortnite community with their recruitment of popular streamer KingRichard, but it appears he will not have a direct role on the competitive team.

Instead, Envy have recruited four relatively unknown players, and is in fact a majority Canadian roster, with only one US player and three Canadians on the lineup.

The four players come from varied gaming backgrounds, including Counter-Strike, Call of Duty and even Clash Royale and Brawl Stars.

Team Envy is very excited to announce our new competitive Fortnite roster! The team consists of four players from various gaming backgrounds who have been together for several months. Get familiar with your new Team Envy representatives!  

Nicholas “Scatch” Scatch

Hailing from Chicago Illinois, Scatch got his start as a skilled Counter Strike 1.6 player, and competed in numerous LANs. He has played CSGO ESEA-Main and will serve as Envy’s team captain.

David “LeNain” Bois

LeNain lives in Quebec, Canada, and is a former professional in Clash Royale and Brawl Stars having reached rank #1 on the leaderboards. He has also competed in H1Z1 on a competitive level.

Bradley “Shotang” Leo

From Ontario, Canada, Shotang is rank #18th in Canada for PC solo wins in Fortnite. He competed most recently in Fortnite’s Solo Showdown event.

Nicolas “TAPLY” Chiodoni

TAPLY is from Quebec, Canada and has extensive experience in competitive Call of Duty.

“We’ve been working so hard for this, and the [Fortnite] esports community will see that in our matches. We will be on top of every tournament. No excuses. We’re excited to be representing Team Envy as our grind continues,” said Scatch.


The move was announced in the same week as other top esports organizations made the move into Fortnite, including Ninjas in Pyjamas and Luminosity.

It is further evidence that the massive prize pools promised by Epic Games is enough to spark interest from professional teams, considering the format for Fortntie esports is far from proven just yet.

Epic has already announced that the Fortnite World Cup will not have any squads competitions, rather will be solo and duos only, so we imagine this Envy roster will be put in pairs, as other teams have been.

How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

Hop Rock Dualies location in Fortnite

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
