FaZe Clan member and YouTuber Jarvis has revealed that he plans to make the switch to Call of Duty. The revelation comes after he was handed a lifetime ban for using aimbots in Fortnite.

The brother of fellow FaZe member Kay, Jarvis was banned from Fortnite indefinitely after using the cheats in videos uploaded to his channel.

He later apologized in a tearful video, openly admitting to using the cheats but saying “it didn’t even cross my mind I could be banned for life from Fortnite for this.”

The story of his ban instantly went viral as other streamers and YouTubers weighed in on whether the severity of the punishment was fair. Mixer star Ninja was one of the most vocal, stating that the lifetime ban as too harsh for a first-time offense.

Regardless of the debate online, it appears Epic Games are upholding their decision, and with no option to return to his game of choice, Jarvis has revealed his plans moving forward.

In an impromptu interview with TMZ,  Jarvis said that the next game he will “completely destroy” is Call of Duty, claiming “I’m going to snipe in that game, we’re going to get cracked.”

The FaZe star also confirmed that there was “no chance” of a return to Fortnite, while fellow member Teeqo suggested he could even make the transition to Counter-Strike content too.

The problem Jarvis faces is not so much a lack of choice for other games, but more so that his audience is already built up on Fortnite gameplay and related videos.

The drama surrounding his ban has resulted in a boost to his views and subscribers, but that wave of popularity might begin to slow down if his Fortnite-focused fans grow disinterested in other games he chooses to play.

Infinity WardSeason One of Modern Warfare just started, so the timing could be right for Jarvis.

He and his brother Kay often feature in videos together, and although gaming is usually involved, much of their vlog content is centered around pranks or meeting other YouTubers.

The British pair are back in the US, despite having returned home to the UK briefly after Jarvis’ Fortnite ban. Modern Warfare’s Season One is in full swing for Call of Duty, so there is certainly an opportunity to move into that community if he chooses. After all, Call of Duty is where FaZe Clan first became popular, so a return to their roots could be a smart move.

The Call of Duty Mobile devs have revealed that one iconic CoD weapon is coming in 2021’s Season 1 update, and it should be recognizable to any long-time CoD fan.

For years, Call of Duty fans have begged Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Activision, and anyone else who will listen, for a game that takes the best part of all previous releases and puts them into one.

Increasingly, we’re seeing more map remakes, classic weapons returning, and even character crossovers thanks to Warzone, but it’s CoD Mobile that really fits the bill of what that all-encompassing CoD game would be.

The mobile game has maps from CoD 4: Modern Warfare, Black Ops 1, as well as weapons from Advanced Warfare and even Black Ops 3 and 4. With the first major update of 2021 just around the corner, the devs have started teasing what’s coming next, and we’re getting more throwbacks.

CoD Mobile has characters, maps, and weapons from almost every modern Call of Duty game.

Even though CoD Mobile is currently, as of writing, in Season 13, when the first major update of 2021 hits, we’ll be back to Season 1. Just like how Fortnite is now Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5.

Regardless, when players finally get to play the new season update, they’ll be able to wield the FAMAS. Yes, the iconic Call of Duty weapon, that has been in a whole host of CoD games is finally arriving in CoD Mobile.

The devs confirmed the news on January 16, tweeting out their first teaser for the new season. “A new weapon is approaching! Can you guess what it is?” they said, with an image and it’s fairly obvious that the weapon in question is the FAMAS.

The name of the iconic weapon might get a slight tweak when it is added to CoD Mobile. The devs have tweaked the names of other recognizable guns before, just to give it a new feel for the mobile game.

There’s also the question of whether it’ll be as powerful as it was, say, back in Black Ops 1. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait too long.
