EA and Respawn gave us a heads up a little while back at E3 that Apex Legends would have Leviathan-sized things to come on July 2. With that date rapidly approaching, the full details have finally spilled out on Season 2: Battle Charge. What’s in store for those that will jump into the action? Let’s take a closer look.

New Apex Legend: Natalie “Wattson” Paquette

First up, there’s the electrifying new legend, Wattson. She’s got some truly defensive skills, as she can place and connect multiple nodes to create defensive fencing on the map. Enemies attempting to pass through will have their location pinged and be in for a literal shock when they take a hit to their health in addition to movement slowdown.

Taking full advantage of performance aim and shooting with your SCUF will be more important than ever against Wattson as her ultimate ability, the Interception Pylon, will destroy any explosives and equipment you throw within her radius. This gets more difficult if she’s stockpiling Ultimate Accelerants, which can give her Ultimate Ability a full recharge thanks to her unique passive ability, Spark of Genius.

New Apex Weapon: L-STAR


Along with Wattson, the new season of Apex Legends will feature a sweet new weapon that should prove to be a real game-changer: the L-STAR plasma rifle.

This high-powered LMG fires unique projectiles that are larger than those shot by other weapons in the game, allowing for players to deliver a dangerous spray. Be careful, however, as the L-STAR can overheat. Learning how to feather your shot will be essential to mastering this weapon. Look for the L-STAR to spawn exclusively in airdrops.

Time To Take Charge


Prepare to take charge because Apex Legends is set to make you feel like a Champion all over again when it launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC soon. For those in need of a refresher, brush up with our How to SCUF video and visit our Apex Legends hub for more tips. See you in Ranked Mode!

Those of you that are familiar with Bungie’s Destiny community should recognize the name Mesa Sean instantly.

He also founded one of the biggest Destiny groups on Facebook with over 67,000 members. It’s safe to say that when it comes to all things surrounding Bungie’s hit game, he covers all the bases.

 

The Latest Drop


To recognize Mesa Sean’s contributions and accomplishments, today we are launching new SCUF IMPACT and Vantage controller designs based on the man himself, one of Team SCUF’s most dedicated members.

Inspired by his main channel art, Mesa Sean’s controller is pure rock ‘n’ roll. His design sees smoke drifting in fiery hues from two purple skulls atop a black background. Meanwhile, Mesa Sean’s signature logo and the hashtag #MadeItToTheEnd are placed on the edges to give this design its final touches.

21 new controller designs let fans represent hometown NBA 2K League teams


ATLANTA, June 21, 2019 — Scuf Gaming®, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, and the NBA 2K League are launching a collection of controllers to celebrate each of the 21 teams in the NBA 2K League.

Available for the high-performance SCUF Vantage controller, officially licensed for PlayStation 4, each NBA 2K League team controller features a unique design, including a faceplate emblazoned with one of the NBA 2K League team’s respective colors and logo. The Vantage boasts a suite of customizable features designed to allow gamers to use more of their hands and improve performance and comfort. SCUF controllers are relied upon in competition by many of the NBA 2K League's marquee professional players.

“This collection is a nod to the league’s fans, who are just as faithful and loyal as those that cheer on live basketball,” said Scuf Gaming founder and CEO Duncan Ironmonger. “Whether it’s the royal purple and gold of Lakers Gaming, the iconic blue and orange of Knicks Gaming, or any other team, fans can now represent their favorite team when they are gaming.”

The launch is an extension of Scuf Gaming’s ongoing sponsorship as the Official Gaming Controller of the NBA 2K League, and the launch of the official SCUF Vantage NBA2KL controller in March 2019.

Currently in its second season, the NBA 2K League is composed of affiliates of 21 NBA teams participating in an 18-week competitive campaign, culminating with the NBA 2K League Playoffs, which tip off Wednesday, July 24, and the NBA 2K League Finals on Saturday, Aug. 3. Hawks Talon GC, Nets GC, Lakers Gaming, and T-Wolves Gaming are new to the NBA 2K League this season.

“We’ve been a foundational partner with the NBA 2K League since its first season, supporting the league and providing players with high-performance equipment to play at the highest levels,” continued Ironmonger. “As the league grows, we’re excited to bring fans even closer to the action.”

The new SCUF Vantage NBA 2K League team collection (starting at $199.95) is now available in the US & Canada through Scuf Gaming’s website, and individual team faceplate kits ($29.95) will become available next week. For more information and to view photos of the collection, please visit http://scuf.co/NBA2KTeams.

Call of Duty Sniper Image

For 2019, Call of Duty founding studio Infinity Ward is back at the helm for the development of the next Call of Duty game, which will see the return of iconic Modern Warfare series for the first time since 2011.

This installment of Call of Duty isn’t a prequel or sequel to the original Modern Warfare series but rather a reimagining, powered by a brand-new engine that will provide a new level of realism to gameplay and storytelling. Real, grounded warfare is coming back to the Call of Duty universe.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will feature a single player campaign, a welcome return for those who missed it in Black Ops 4. When the reveal trailer premiered in May, not only were Tier 1 Operators and Rebel Fighters shown taking on a variety of missions in London and Middle East, but confirmation was made of the return of fan-favorite Modern Warfare character Captain Price.

Later at E3, Infinity Ward showcased their first look at extended campaign gameplay behind closed doors to members of the media, gaining many positive reactions.

Of course, the new title includes multiplayer. It promises to be better than ever before with confirmation of cross play between platforms and the decision to forgo the traditional season pass, bringing the entire Call of Duty community closer together for the first time ever. Meanwhile, the co-op Spec Ops mode—not seen since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3—was also confirmed.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Soldiers

When Call of Duty: Modern Warfare lands October 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC worldwide, you already know Team SCUF be ready for all-out warfare. Until then we’ll be paying close attention as details emerge to help you stay in competitive form!

E3 Fornite and Stranger Things

We’re more than ready for the competition to heat up with the upcoming Fortnite World Cup, but that’s not stopping Epic Games from bringing the fire this summer. Word coming out of E3 is that they’re ready to keep us entertained between the weekend qualifiers with not one but two interesting promotions on the way.

First up is a new promotion that crosses over with the forthcoming third season of Stranger Things. Though it’s unknown exactly what will take place in Fortnite, there already have been glimpses of the Scoops Ahoy ice cream shop in the game. There’s a good chance that players could see skins based on characters, but we’re dying to see if any new game modes from the Upside Down or ‘80s-style weaponry will be introduced to shake up how we play the game.

Meanwhile, those keeping an eye on DrLupo’s activities from E3 last week may have seen this sneak peek of what appears to be a new Prop Hunt mode likely making its way to Fortnite soon.
