Friendly quips between 100 Thieves CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag and FaZe’s Ricky Banks made for a hilarious Twitter bout that took fans on a quick trip down memory lane.

Nadeshot announced a celebration for 100 Thieves streamer Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofsetter’s birthday on Twitter when Banks chimed in to advise Nadeshot of the terrible mistake he had made.

Banks posted a screenshot of text messages between the two in a group chat and the FaZe member was referring to his tendency to be wild at shindigs, but that didn’t intimidate Nadeshot.

“It’s dangerous to invite me to anything even close to a party,” Banks said. “I will be there, but you’ve been warned.”

But the real shots came when Nadeshot noticed Banks still had him as “OpTic NaDeSHoT” on his phone. Something that the 100T CEO was keen on making Banks regret.

Nadeshot had replied with a screenshot of his phone showing how he addressed his fellow content creator.

“OpTic NaDeSHoT, huh? Don’t worry, I got you,” Nadeshot said.

The caption was attached to an image of a lowly Banks but addressed to “SoaR Banks,” making reference to the previous organization Banks was a part of before leaving for FaZe.

The exchange sent Twitter bystanders on a craze, as the two didn’t back down from the jabs instead playing into each others’ hands.

Although the exchange was spicy, the two will undoubtedly let the good times roll over at night’s festivities.


Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
