Despite having an already star-studded Fortnite roster, Falcons Esports has announced the arrival of the talented “Veno”. The English youngster joins the European organization after recording a host of impressive finishes in his short time as a pro.
At Falcons Esports, Veno will join 3x Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) winner Tai “TaySon” Starcic, who joined from Guild Esports back in July, as well as FNCS Season 5 champion Moussa “Chapix” Faour. Chapix joined after being a free agent, with Falcons showing no signs of slowing down in their pursuit to become one of the leading Fortnite rosters around.
How Veno Rose to Fame
The signing of Veno was announced on Twitter over the weekend, posting the following message: “Nowhere near done. Please welcome @venofn to Falcons Eagle. #FalconsAreHere”
The switch to Falcons Esports demonstrates Veno’s rapid rise to fame, with the Brit having been relatively unknown just a few months ago. Despite having qualified for just a single FNCS Final during his career to date, the fact that Veno made a significant impact at the event shows his enormous potential.
Nowhere near done.

In fact, Veno and TaySon came up against each other at the first FNCS All-Star Showdown, where the former actually had a good chance of winning the main prize. He was eventually made to settle for the runner-up spot, a result which put his name on the Fortnite map. The result was followed by disappointment however, with Veno’s team having had to withdraw from the FNCS Semi-Finals at the Chapter 2 – Season 6 stage due to an issue with his team’s account.
Why Veno is a good addition to the Falcons Esports Fortnite roster
Veno will be one of the names to look out for in Season 7, with the backing of Falcons likely to make his chances of success greater. Both Tayson and Rezon, two of Europe’s standout Fortnite players, are now well aware of the threat posed by Veno. The trio played on the same team after Veno split with his former lineup.
The three have impressed immensely, winning two Trio Cash Cups, as well as recording a top-5 finish in the opening two FNCS Season 7 qualifiers.
The trio have earned over $145,000 in prize money to date, with many expecting them to add to this total this season. As a result, the move is a smart one by Falcons Esports, who have proven themselves to be shrewd operators in the transfer market.
