FaZe Clan have added another prolific name to their Call of Duty content team with the signing of Youtuber ‘Swagg’ who’s set to join the world renown organization.

Swagg has grinded over the years on his craft while amassing 65,000 followers on Twitter, over 240,00 on Twitch, and 1.16 million subscribers on his YouTube channel.

The content creator lives and breathes Call of Duty; helping the community with videos of impressive weapon loadout combinations for Modern Warfare along with insane fragging compilations on Warzone.

FaZe’s intro video was a charming throwback to a 2019 upload by Swagg hoping that “maybe one day” he’d join the org.

Though he’s been within the circles of giant YouTubers, he was still beside himself seeing ‘FaZe’ followed by his name after the org’s announcement.

“It’s so crazy, I was making videos with a bulls**t ass Turtle Beach mic watching all of those FaZe dudes tear [it] up,” Swagg said, reminiscing about the past admiring the members of the org he now represents.

But coming down an eight-year path to finally FaZeUp with the best of them won’t detract Swagg from his strengths as a content creator.

“I’m not hitting no 360 zoom,” Swagg said. Back in its heyday, FaZe was a collective of Call of Duty players known for their insane sniping trickshots, something that the new member joked that he might have to learn now.

Swagg’s content pedigree has already been up to FaZe’s standards before his signing. In his career, he’s put together over 2,100 YouTube videos spanning the various Call of Duty titles throughout the years.

He described joining the org as “overwhelming,” saying that he was playing with “idol” NICKMERCS a few days prior when he got the message from FaZe owner Yousef ‘Apex’ Abdelfattah about joining.

During the April Fools Day festivities, FaZe put out a call for anyone to join the ranks for one of the gaming world’s biggest organizations. The tweet got over 70,000 replies filled with YouTubers, streamers, aspiring pro players, and more.

But it was YouTuber Kris ‘Swagg’ who’s number was called up after giving FaZe an enticing offer that the org wasn’t prepared to let go.

FaZe have been making huge moves in 2020 in all facets of entertainment. From their elite Fortnite talent to their unbeatable content machine which is expanding to a Quibi reality show.

With the sheer volume of starpower in FaZe Clan, Swagg is looking to shine even brighter as the org’s newly minted content creator.

Just a few short weeks ahead of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s official launch, Activision and Sony have announced a brand new Zombies: Onslaught mode. It will be exclusive to PlayStation consoles, at least for a little while, before coming to other platforms.

According to PlayStation, a new Black Ops Cold War Zombies mode titled Onslaught will be exclusively available to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players for almost an entire year before coming to other platforms.

The mode itself is a simple variation of the classic Zombies experience: Two players will be dropped into maps from the game’s base multiplayer mode and will be forced to fight the undead in specific sections of the map, marked by a Dark Aether Orb. After taking out enough enemies, the section will move, forcing the player themselves to move as well.

Onslaught players will be dropped into multiplayer maps and forced to fight the undead.

Like the normal Zombies mode in Black Ops Cold War, players will be able to use their custom classes in Onslaught, allowing you to fight the way that you want. This is certainly a welcome addition, although an expected one.

During the match itself, different enemies will spawn in, including a type called Elites. Taking out these zombies is apparently be what players should shoot for (no pun intended) when fighting through Onslaught matches, as they’ll directly affect your ranking when you finish.

Depending on the rank you achieve, you’ll be able to earn rewards for both Multiplayer and Zombies, further bridging the two modes. Currently, it’s unknown exactly what the rewards are, although it’ll more than likely be calling cards, emblems, and weapon blueprints.

While this news is certainly exciting for PlayStation players, fans on Xbox and PC are going to, once again, be left in the dark until November 1, 2021. Modern Warfare’s Survival mode was exclusive to PS4 in 2019 and, while it ended up not being received very well, it was still a bummer for players on other platforms as it was content that was simply locked out.

Black Ops Cold War is set to release on PS4, PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC on November 13, 2020.
