Trent “trent” Cairns is a 17-year-old Radiant player. The Guard signed him on 17th February 2022. He has recently come under the spotlight after annihilating 100 Thieves and recently XSET.

The next match against 100 Thieves, he dropped 55 kills out-fragging Asuna, Ethan, and Hiko. In the third match against XSET, he dropped 61 kills playing Sova and Breach.
