Pamaj reveals expensive custom Black Ops 2 chain with 90+ diamonds & clan tag

Longtime FaZe Clan content creator Austin ‘Pamaj’ Pamajewon showed off a brand new chain that pays tribute to his roots in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

The legacy of FaZe Clan has been exponentially growing as their influence spans across emerging platforms and new ways to engage with fans. But their media empire had humble beginnings with kids doing trickshot videos and various other CoD montages.

Slowly their numbers of followers, as well as subscribers over the years, have grown, leading to FaZe’s massive global community. That makes Pamaj’s new ice all the more impressive since it directly calls back to his early years.

The star YouTube’s majestic new chain features over 90 glistening diamonds organized in the shape of the iconic Ballista sniper rifle from Black Ops 2. Pamaj told Dexerto that this piece was made to order for around $4,500, a hefty but expected price for such a delicate piece of jewelry.

“My new chain because BO2 changed my life forever,” he tweeted. “90+ diamonds & the clan tag I rocked the most.”

The clan tag he’s referencing is the word LOVE written in brackets on the bottom face of the jewel gun, one that he used as his primary insignia when dominating BO2 multiplayer for years.

Fellow CoD trick shot and YouTube star James Spratt immediately recognized the piece of jewelry from a staple in Pamaj’s video library: “Sheeesh man, what a beauty. I knew I remembered the 90+ from somewhere.. you smart smart.”

That’s right, the fact that there are 90-plus diamonds on the sniper pendant also holds significance – it’s a direct reference to one of his most popular and influential videos, in which he got over 90 kills using the Ballista without any lethal killstreaks.

Pamaj starting his YouTube channel in October 2010 and has been on the rise ever since getting quite a bit of traction, even in his early days.

He joined OpTic Gaming in 2013 and was a part of the legendary team behind the Greenwall’s reputation for some of the best Call of Duty content around at the time. He spent nearly five years with the organization before leaving and rejoining FaZe in 2018.

Today, the Canadian can usually be found streaming and making YouTube videos with Warzone, as his content focus has shifted from multiplayer to the popular battle royale.

CoD Mobile devs explain why Overkill perk hasn’t been added yet

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have shed a little bit more light on why the Overkill perk hasn’t been added just yet despite being teased for a few seasons now.

With each new Call of Duty Mobile season, fans of the game are treated to a whole batch of new content, typically including a new weapon, new map, new skins, and a new character. 

Back in CoD Mobile Season 8, the Overkill perk was supposed to be added alongside Quick Fix and Shrapnel. Though the other two made it in, Overkill was left locked until being removed not too long ago. 

The removal of the perk, which has been a staple in other CoD titles, has had fans questioning whether the devs are getting rid of it entirely, and now, they’ve shed a little more light on what’s happened.

Overkill was listed a perk for CoD Mobile but was never available.

Following their October 29 Community Update, where they revealed some additional content for Halloween, as well as going over bug fixes for the current season, the devs were quizzed on plenty of different topics – including Overkill. 

Players asked if it was still in the works and if they had any further info to add, given that players have been waiting quite a while to see it. “No, not yet. Still the same situation as before where we aren’t quite comfortable enough with weapon balance after the introduction of Gunsmith,”  the devs replied. 

Adding on to that, they continued: “We need weapon balance to be damn near perfect before we drop Overkill into the mix since that can have a huge effect on weapon balance as well.”

Given that the power of balancing is in the hands of the devs, there’s no telling as to when the mobile game will be balanced enough for Overkill to be introduced. 

Fans who have been waiting for the perk will be hoping that this day comes sooner rather than later, but, we’ll just have to wait and see.
