Gambit Esports has announced its acquisition of the Apex Legends team, Fire Beavers. This marks the Russian organisation's entry into the Apex Legends competitive scene.

The team has seen some good results at tournaments with its best being a 1st-2nd finish at Apex World Tour: Pro League #1 in June and a 1st place finish at FACEIT Pro Series in July.
The former Fire Beavers pulled off their FACEIT Pro Series win after entering the main tournament through its qualifier event, coming second to Alliance. Their run during the tournament series' weekly events was also quite impressive with a couple of 2nd and 3rd place finishes.
Together they will compete at the Apex Legends Preseason Invitational which will take place in Kraków from September 13-15 and features a $500,000 prize pool.
