FaZe Clan sign Rawkus to complete their lineup

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

With the FaZe Clan VALORANT Invitational fast approaching, FaZe Clan have had roster announcements coming like crazy. Over the last few weeks, Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo, Jimmy "Marved" Nguyen, and Andrej "babybay" Francisty have all joined the organization. Today, FaZe have announced their final member as former Overwatch League flex support Shane "Rawkus" Flaherty.

Rawkus has had a long history in Overwatch. He began playing the game competitively shortly after its release in 2016, and soon found himself picked up by FaZe Clan. They found success in many weekly/monthly events, and at the end of the year finished second at MLG Vegas 2016. In 2017, they finished second in Overwatch Contenders North America Season 1, before being signed by the Houston Outlaws for the inaugural season of the Overwatch League. Success has since been sparse for Rawkus and the Outlaws, with Rawkus often being considered a weak link in the team.

By far his greatest achievement, though, was capturing the Overwatch World Cup 2019 title alongside fellow VALORANT players Corey and Jay "sinatraa" Won on Team USA. Rawkus played incredibly well all tournament as the team won many upset matches, including a huge win over the gigantic favourites South Korea, to take home the trophy. Rawkus has not participated in any VALORANT tournaments.

Rawkus joins a FaZe Clan roster built from 3 other ex-Overwatch League players, as well as former CS:GO pro Marved. They’ll be looking to impress at their home tournament this weekend.

FaZe Clan's full roster is:

Corey "Corey" Nigra Zachary "ZachaREEE" Lombardo Jimmy "Marved" Nguyen Andrej "babybay" Francisty Shane "Rawkus" Flaherty


It'll be really interesting to see how this roster performs. See if JasonR was right in opting out or not.
