Rehx boasts numerous achievements in the competitive Fortnite scene. This includes first-place finishes in the recent weeks of North American West’s Contenders Solo Cash Cups. In addition, the talented player finished in 2nd while teaming with NRG Esports player Shane “EpikWhale” Cotton during Day 3 of the 2019 Winter Royale event. Rehx also had notable placements at online tournaments like the Champion’s Trios Cash Cup, along with the Fortnite Champion Series during Season X and Chapter 2: Season 1.

The 100 Thieves lineup now consists of Davis “Ceice” McClellan, Hayden “Elevate” Krueger, Gabriel “Kyzui” Harlos, Brandon “Klass” Weaver, Diego “Arkhram” Lima, Brett “Grandma” Squires, and Brendan “Falconer” Falconer, along with MrSavage and Rehx. Many of these players will be based at the newly established 100 Thieves Cash App Compound, where they will practice year-round under the same roof.

The lineup will compete together at DreamHack Anaheim between Feb. 21 – 23, which boasts a $250,000 prize pool up for grabs. The event will start with 400 total players trying to advance to the qualifiers through two initial heats. This will then shrink to 100 players for the grand finals, with eight games that determine who walks away with the trophy.
