FaZe Clan is thrilled to announce the highly-anticipated collaboration with OpTic Gaming to commemorate the history and legacy between the two gaming powerhouses.

While the FaZe Clan x OpTic Gaming rivalry is one of the greatest in all of esports, the merchandise collection pays homage to the organizations’ brotherly relationship.

Along with the merchandise collection, multiple content pieces featuring key talent from each organization will drop in the coming weeks. Fans can check FaZe Clan and OpTic Gaming’s social channels for more information.
“To say we owe a lot to Hector and OpTic is an understatement,” says FaZe Temperrr. “We created something out of nothing and we wouldn’t be here without their blueprint. It’s been mind blowing to watch both brands grow into something that can never be recreated and revolutionize the space together. “
“The beauty of competition is that it drives innovation, and although OpTic was the first of its kind, OpTic didn’t define itself until the FaZe Snipers came to play,” says OpTic HECZ. “Without FaZe and the fresh new look they brought to the fast-growing esports and gaming entertainment landscape, OpTic and gaming culture wouldn’t be where it is today, for it was FaZe and their innovations that helped gamers transcend gaming.”
FaZe Clan and OpTic Gaming have been thriving off of each other’s success for the last decade, first taking over the sniping scene in early 2010s before moving to competitive Call of Duty to finally leading the charge in all things gaming culture and lifestyle. Both organizations understood that content and competition were key to growing communities and building a brand, two aspects that have transformed gaming from a pastime amongst the anti-social to a cultural phenomenon and one of the most prestigious forms of entertainment.
