BabyJ exits FaZe Clan

Written By    PeeKay  -  share on

Hunter "BabyJ" Schline revealed today that he will no longer represent FaZe Clan, confirming his own suspicions about his future from last week.

The former Halo pro spent a majority of his VALORANT career on unsigned teams before finding his big break with FaZe in June earlier this year. BabyJ’s arrival looked highly promising, adding a prolific sentinel to a roster brimming with firepower but lacking a final piece.

The squad had to wait patiently for results, disappointing first at VCT Stage 3: NA - Challengers 1 - Open Qualifier but turning their fortune around in the subsequent VCT Stage 3: NA - Challengers 2 - Open Qualifier and VCT Stage 3: NA - Challengers 2. That would be the most BabyJ achieved with FaZe, as their inability to hang with the big North American teams at VCT Stage 3: NA - Challengers Playoffs and missing out on VALORANT Champions 2021 at the latest VCT 2021 - North America Last Chance Qualifier put the final nail in the coffin for the lineup.

Despite his removal, BabyJ remains a top-tier sentinel player in the North American scene. His 202 ACS and 0.96 rating while playing Cypher and Killjoy are hugely impressive and he is certain to be picked up before the new season next year.

FaZe Clan have not yet announced who their fifth player will be as the organization will probably wait until after Champions to assess their options.

FaZe Clan are now:

Corey “corey” Nigra Zachary “ZachaREE” Lombardo Andrej “babybay” Francisty Shane “Rawkus” Flaherty
