Fortnite World Cup, bringing their number of qualified players to five.

Reverse2K rose to prominence during the World Cup qualifiers as Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins’ partner as they worked to qualify together.

Unfortunately, they weren’t able to do so as a team, but Reverse still made it to the event as a solo, making him a top free agent going into the World Cup.

He hinted at wanting an organization for months now, so he was no doubt scouting for them behind the scenes.

In the end, Reverse decided to settle with TSM over the likes of FaZe Clan and 100 Thieves, which is a major pickup for the organization, who added pro Kyle ‘Herrions’ Trusley on July 22.

Reverse talked about his signing with TSM and why it took longer than expected for him to announce a signing.

“I know a lot of people have been waiting and questions why I haven’t signed with a team,” he said in a TSM press release. “And the answer is that I was waiting on the perfect one for me. I wasn’t going to rush into anything that I would regret months later.

As for why he chose TSM over another organization, he explained that he’s also been a fan of them and wanted a team that believed in him.

“It means a lot to join an organization that is believing in me and treating me like a family, especially when that org is TSM,” he explained. “I have always been a fan of the organization, and hopefully I am going to have a great future with them.”

This looks to be the last of TSM’s pickups going into the World Cup, but there are still numerous free agent Fortnite players out there looking for teams, so stay tuned for more potential signings.

Reverse joins Herrions, Commandment, ZexRow, and Vinny as the other TSM qualified Fortnite pros.


Fortnite leak reveals more classic vehicles returning soon

A fresh Fortnite leak has hinted at the return of some classic vehicles, including the controversial Baller hamster ball and even the ATK Golf Cart. 

Back in Fortnite Season 4, Epic Games gave fans of the battle royale a new way to get around the island – a shopping cart. From there, the vehicles in Fortnite have only gotten bigger and better. 

Though, they haven’t been without controversy. The Baller, X-4 Stormwing, and Brute Mech were the source of much anger in the Fortnite community because of how powerful they were – with all three prompting exploits where players could easily win games without much legwork. 

In Fortnite Chapter 2, a number of different cars have been introduced. They’re not as whacky or powerful as the old vehicles, and while they are helpful, some players do yearn for the Shopping Cart and Quadcrasher’s returns.

The controversial planes returned in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Well, according to a handful of new leaks, players might be getting their wish after a few of the older vehicles were given a refresh in the v15.20 patch.

According to Fortnite leakers FNBRUnreleased and InTheShadeYT, the Baller, Hoverboard, and ATK Golf Cart were all updated in the recent patch.

“Ballers and Hoverboard have been also updated! We may see them making a return soon,” FNBRUnreleased posted, while noting that the textures for the ATK Golf Cart were also refreshed. However, there doesn’t seem to be much of a change from the way the ATK’s used to look. 

There’s nothing mentioned about when exactly the vehicles could return, but it does seem possible that they could appear in this season. We got the Stormwings back over the holiday period, after all. 

Until we see them in-game though, it is worth noting that nothing is confirmed. Epic might have plans to bring them back, but scrap them based on something else that happens – say, they’re not compatible with another item. So, let’s just wait and see.
