On April 14, one of Fortnite’s youngest prodigies, Tyler “Scoped” Appleby, announced his plan to join Team Liquid’s Fortnite roster. The squad, which already consists of some of the top players in the scene, is now solidified heading into the Fortnite Championship Series Chapter 2 Season 6.
Scoped waited quite a long time to join an organization. But when Team Liquid came calling, he felt the time was right. He’s best known for competing in duo tournaments with Turner “Tfue” Tenney from 2019 to 2020. However, since Tfue quit Fortnite, Scoped has grown his fan base significantly and increased his level of play to become one of the biggest Fortnite streamers on Twitch.

So far, in 2021, Scoped hasn’t competed in many high-profile Fortnite tournaments. His biggest accomplishment this year has been finishing third in the Season 5 Week 7 Champion Cash Cup. He scrimmages on most days are with a variety of teammates but no concrete squad has surfaced this year.
Moving forward, he could begin to team up with Team Liquid’s Fortnite players. These include:
- Dmitri “mitr0” Van de Vrie
- Josef “Stretch”
- Thomas “72hrs” Mulligan
- Thales “Pulga” Henrique
While the competitive side of Fortnite is still important to Scoped, one of his main focuses in the short-run is expanding his content. Scoped stated, “My only really big goal for this year is to try and produce more IRL content and maybe do face-cam streams as well.”
It certainly seems as if Scoped, who’s only 17 years old, wants to expand his horizons beyond simply playing and competing in Fortnite.
