As the first-place winner and first to be announced, “Faxuty” won on the first day. Following his announcement, “Virus”, “Flea”, “Nio”, and “K1ng” were revealed. Today, FaZe Clan revealed that because of all the high-quality candidates in this year’s Recruitment Challenge, a sixth member will join. This is where FaZe Scope finally made it into the organization.
“We have been blown away by our community and all of the unbelievably talented people who participated in the FaZe 5 challenge this year,” Yousef Abdelfattah, co-founder of FaZe Clan and commonly known as FaZe Apex stated. “We love putting on this contest and getting to know our fans so much better, while they also get to know each other. We have so much fun finding new talent this way, and we are excited to continue doing FaZe 5 in the future. Congratulations to our new recruits — welcome to the FaZe family!”
FaZe Clan first announced its 2020 Recruitment Challenge back in the Summer of this year. Officially starting on September 4 and ending on December 31, fans can’t wait to see all five winners come together. When considering the huge prizes this year too, it’s no wonder the event is heated. Over $100 thousand is up for grabs for winners. On top of joining the org, winners each get a $20 thousand signing bonus from G GUEL because of a sponsorship deal. The top FaZe5 winner “Faxuty” even earned a Nissan Kicks car, customized just for him.
