Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop and Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag were playing Apex Legends when they eliminated the son of Respawn CEO Vince Zampella live on stream.
The popular streamers were enjoying a match of Apex Legends when they came across another group.
The former Call of Duty pro and the former Call of Duty caster are rarely outmatched in gunskill, so a push easily eliminated the unfortunate group. In the middle of the fight, they noticed one of the enemies had the name “Zampella.”
Knowing the name of Resapwn CEO Vince Zampella, the creator of Apex Legends, Nadeshot and CouRageJD wondered if they eliminated the Zampella.
Well, Vince himself chimed in to let them know that they did indeed eliminate a Zampella - but it was his son.
“Lol, Nadeshot and CouRageJD just killed my kid’s group on the stream,” said Zampella. No word yet on if Vince will pick up the sticks and avenge his son's elimination.
While the older Zampella may not face off against CouRage and Nade, an Apex Legends competition is happening on Twitch on February 12.
Apex Legends was released on February 4 as a surprise and has become a hit, garnering over 10 million downloads in the first 3 days.
Zampella is no stranger to success, creating the Titanfall franchise after founding Respawn and the Call of Duty franchise after founding Infinity Ward.
