Fortnite: MrSavage Joins 100 Thieves
MrSavage found himself a new home with one of esports’ most prominent organizations.
It’s been an unpredictable couple of weeks for Martin “MrSavage” Foss Andersen. The talented young Norweigan professional Fortnite player recently parted ways with NRG after spending well over a year with the organization. This departure came seemingly out of nowhere for MrSavage, who represented the organization for the majority of his career. He quickly became a hot free agent considering how his streams often eclipse 20K viewers. This mirrors that of fellow European players Benjy “benjyfishy” Fish and Kyle “Mongraal” Jackson. It appears that MrSavage’s departure from NRG put all other esports organizations on notice. After a short teaser came out on Wednesday, we quickly learned that MrSavage found a new home.
Welcome @MrSavage to 100 Thieves!
MrSavage qualified 4x for the 2019 Fortnite World Cup and placed T30 in both Solos & Duos. This 15-year-old Norwegian phenom has solidified his spot as a top competitor and creator in the scene. We’re beyond excited to have him on 100 Thieves! pic.twitter.com/5UnRvj1iJW

The official 100 Thieves Twitter account released an announcement stating that they have signed MrSavage. The four-minute feature focuses on the new 100T member, who goes over his career and excitement joining 100 Thieves. He outlines his famous “200IQ” plays, including an impressive shadow bomb play during the Fortnite World Cup qualifiers. Also, MrSavage sports the patented 100 Thieves apparel in the video and is looking to bring some victories to the organization in 2020.
It took almost no time for an organization to snatch MrSavage from free agency. His dedicated following mixed with an outstanding skill set caused 100 Thieves to flock toward the fifteen-year-old. In addition, MrSavage joins the likes of Davis “Ceice” McClellan, Hayden “Elevate” Krueger, Diego “Arkhram” Lima, Brendan “Falconer” Falconer, Brandon “Klass” Weaver, Gabriel “Kyzui” Harlos and Brett “Grandmateets” Squires. All seven of these players have accomplished something significant in their Fortnite careers. As a result, MrSavage fits right in with his accolades.
MrSavage’s Competitive History
Not many Fortnite followers will argue with the sentiment that MrSavage is one of the best players across the globe. His achievements speak for themselves with multiple noteworthy offline and online placements. MrSavage was one of just a handful of competitors who managed to qualify for both solos and duos at the Fortnite World Cup. He did so alongside former organizational teammates and duo partner, benjyfishy.
Thus, the Norweigan standout remains competitive to this day. He had a 14th place finish at DreamHack Winter and multiple Solo Cash Cup victories. Overall, there isn’t much that MrSavage hasn’t accomplished except for a major offline tournament win. He’s bringing an impressive resumè along with him over to 100 Thieves CEO, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, and the rest of their crew.
An announcement of this magnitude could not come at a better time considering the DreamHack Anaheim event is taking place this weekend. MrSavage is representing 100 Thieves at one of the most significant offline Fortnite tournaments since DreamHack Winter back in December of 2019. There’s no telling how much more this ground-breaking signing will motivate him to do well. Although the immediate future of competitive Fortnite is questionable, 100 Thieves and MrSavage alike are ready for whatever it may hold.
