Cloak, who is the current captain of FaZe Clan’s Fortnite Battle Royale team, is the long-time duos partner of Tfue who is currently suing the organization over what is described as an “oppressive” contract in his suit.

While FaZe founder Ricky ‘FaZe Banks’ Banks and Tfue continue to publicly address and dispute the other’s story, it appears that Cloak has decided to stand behind his teammate instead of the organization he represents.

FaZe ClanCloak has sided with friend and duo partner Tfue over FaZe Clan.

On Wednesday, May 22, Tfue released a statement regarding the ongoing lawsuit, stating that the contract he signed with the organization was bizarre, and urging fans to use “#ReleaseTheContract” in the hopes of pressuring FaZe to make it available for the public.

While many fans of the streamer chose started to post messages of support featuring the hashtag, one of the most notable people to use it was Cloak, posting an image of him embracing Tfue with “#ReleaseTheContract” as the caption on Instagram.

For Cloak to come out in public support of Tfue is a big step by the Fortnite Battle Royale pro player, as he is still a member of FaZe Clan and remains under contract with the organization.

Will Cloak keep playing with Tfue?

While some fans of the duo were concerned that the lawsuit brought by Tfue against FaZe Clan could spell the end of their time playing together, Cloak quickly shut down any thoughts that they would split up in a statement released on May 20.

“As of now, I am still on FaZe,” wrote Cloak in a TwitLonger. “Me and Tfue are still going to be a due, we are still going to qualify and win the World Cup, move in together, and take this streaming thing to the next level.”

Whether the pair still represent FaZe Clan when the the Fortnite World Cup rolls around remains to be seen, but it seems clear that Cloak intends to follow Tfue wherever he goes.

A bizarre clip of a Call of Duty streamer has emerged, where the player fired a full magazine of a gun out of his window after dying in Warzone, during his Twitch stream.

In an intense online game, particularly battle royales like Warzone, it’s all too easy to get increasingly frustrated when games don’t go your way.

However, one Twitch streamer, who was playing under the “Faze sWiisH” gamer tag, took his post-game rage a bit too far, by taking a break from his Warzone session to empty out a full clip of his gun on-stream.

Warzone has become quite competitive since its release on March 10.

During the streamer’s broadcast, his character was killed by an enemy in-game and, while he could still wait for his Duo to buy him back him at the nearest Buy Station, he proceeded to walk towards his window in the background of the stream.

After opening the window, the streamer picked up a semi-automatic pistol, firing a full magazine directly outside and placing the gun on the table before returning to his stream.

He continued to finish out the Duos session on Warzone but the clip stirred up a lot of controversy online in the following hours, with many discussing the streamer’s actions on Reddit.

Shortly after the clip was shared, an image of what was outside the streamer’s window emerged, highlighting that behind his house (the direction he fired) appears to be a large open field area, so hopefully, no person or property was at risk of being hit.

Despite the fact that the surrounding area seemed to be clear of people, his actions are still against the livestreaming platform’s community guidelines and can be punished by Twitch’s moderation team.

The clip has since been removed from Twitch but as of now, it is unclear whether this was the result of a ban from the platform or if it was the streamer’s doing.
