FaZe Clan sign ZachaREEE for Valorant. FaZe Clan revealed Friday that its former Overwatch League pro Zachary “ZachaREEE” Lombardo will be the newest addition to their VALORANT roster.
ZachaREEE, who played in the Overwatch League for the Dallas Fuel, is joining fellow former Overwatch player Corey “Corey” Nigra and Jason “jasonR” Ruchelski as an official member of the VALORANT roster for the FaZe Clan.
“I’m super excited to be joining FaZe,” ZachaREEE said in an introductory video on Twitter. “I’ve been watching their videos since (Call of Duty) Modern Warfare 2, and they were a really big inspiration for me back in the day when I first started playing FPS.”
“Transitioning from Overwatch to VALORANT, though, has been pretty smooth in my opinion,” ZachaREEE said of his performances so far. “A lot of the ability usage is really similar. It kind of carries over really easily. The big difference from VALORANT and Overwatch is the aim style, so I’ve been working on my aim and making sure my crosshair placement’s good and just focusing on flicks.”
Previously, ZachaREEE played as a flex DPS in the Overwatch League for Fusion University and later the Dallas Fuel. He retired from competitive Overwatch on June 3.
