During the finals of KEEMSTAR’S, Friday Fortnite Tournament FaZe Clan announced the newest content creator to join the organization, Avery ‘Avxry’ Lopriore.
Avxry was playing in the finals of the event against fellow FaZe Clan members Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore.
Most gamers will have heard of the organization that first made its name for incredible trick shots in the Call of Duty franchise.
Today they feature a variety of content creators and professional esports teams across majors titles like PUBG, CS:GO, Overwatch, and Call of Duty.
For Avxry the long journey to FaZe started back in 2009 when he first launched his YouTube channel.
The YouTuber would focus his early content around Call of Duty Zombies mode and slowly built a following primarily centered around his CoD gameplay.
His channel now has over one million subscribers, he is a weekly fixture in KEEMSTAR’s Fortnite Friday Tournament, and is considered to be a top player in the popular battle royale game.
From 100,000 to 1 Million,
From CoD Zombies to Fortnite,
From friend to family.

It’s ridiculous I wanted to join FaZe years back during the trickshot days.
I started YouTube in 2009 & took a break to do CoD Zombies. Met amazing people and went from 100,000 subscribers to 1 million in a year.
Later down the road joined FaZe. What an odd strange journey :blue_heart:

The newest member of FaZe has received a warm welcome from other members of the organization and fans, alike.
His story is one that many popular gamers can relate to and an inspiration for hopeful content creators to continue their grind.
