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


apex_legend_wattson

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!

Halo Game Guide

First appearing as a launch title for Xbox in 2001, the Halo series continues to be one of Microsoft’s strongest gaming franchises.

Bolstered by the founding of the Halo World Championship in 2014, the Halo series has been a staple in competitive gaming since the very beginning. Its fresh take on level design and combat technology has made it a favorite in the eyes of millions of gamers, including pro gamers such as Brett “Naded” Leonard, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, and Tyler “Spartan” Ganza.

 

Paddle configuration:


When under fire in Blood Gulch or Lockout, every split second counts and SCUF's patented paddles are exactly what a player needs to make the most out of every moment.

       -  Map the left D-Pad button to your outer-left paddle. This means you can cycle through your grenades without sacrificing movement.

       -  Map X to your inner-left paddle to focus your Sprint and movement to the same hand.

       -  Map B to your inner-right paddle. Never lift your thumb from the thumbstick in order to aim and strike with melee or a Spartan Charge.

       -  Map A to your outer-right paddle. This will allow you to jump and aim with the same hand at the same time.

 

Thumbsticks:


The SCUF interchangeable thumbstick system means a perfect fit for any hand size.

       -  For the left thumbstick, go with a regular-sized concave: this allows you to dig in for movement, and makes it that much easier to click for a ground pound.

       -  For the right thumbstick, a long-sized dome is the best way to go. The shape allows you to roll your thumb smoothly to aim, and the length of the stick assures quicker precision.

 

What The Experts Say:


I use 1 paddle on my SCUF to switch grenades. Since in Halo 5 you can only switch nades with left or right on the dpad, having a paddle for it allows for easy, on the fly switches to your plasma nades/splinter nades to be able to pick up quick sticks or reversals. They don't call me Naded for nothing.”

--Brett “Naded” Leonard

For Halo 5 specifically, it was almost a necessity for me to get used to the SCUF paddles. This game has multiple different mechanics the Halo franchise hadn't seen before, and keeping your thumb on the joysticks is monumental to being able to shoot and maneuver well around the map. If it wasn't for the paddles I would've had to change my controller settings and layout I've used for years

--Eric “Snip3down” Wrona

I use my left paddle to Sprint/Stabilize, and my right one is to thrust/dash.

--Cuyler “Huke” Garland
For Honor Game Guide

For Honor is a unique take on multiplayer competition. Choosing to fight for the bloodthirsty Vikings, the honor-bound Knights, or the mysterious Samurai is the first step to dueling, slashing, and clobbering your way to the top of the faction leaderboards.

Rather than the twitch-based run-and-gun that many gamers have come to expect from the online scene, For Honor requires a patience and deliberate style. Even in its PC version, a quality controller can mean the difference between glorious victory or a soggy defeat at the bottom of a ledge.

Thumbsticks:


The most important aspect of For Honor’s controls lies in the thumbsticks. Swapping in and out of different stances to avoid one katana or long sword can be tough when it’s a one-on-one duel. It’s even worse when you’re facing down 2, 3, or even 4 other players!

       -  Put a regular length concave thumbstick on the left side of your controller, and pair it with a regular length domed stick on the right.

       -  The concave shape on the left thumbstick lets you dig in, which you’ll need when circling your opponent.

       -  The domed shape helps you float between stances: blocking hits that would have torn your head off otherwise.

Paddles:


As far as paddle configuration is concerned, the two most important face buttons in the heat of battle are your Guard Break (Square for Playstation, X for Xbox) and your Dodge (X for Playstation, A for Xbox).

       -  Map the Dodge button to a left paddle. This keeps your movement and dodge on the same hand, making movements more fluid.

       -  Map Guard Break to a right paddle. This leaves the right hand ready to change stances or attack should the opportunity present itself.

Grip:


Long, tense duels means sweaty hands and plenty of tension. Getting the right handle on your controller means choosing the right grip and shell for your SCUF.

       -  SCUF Grip or Pro Grip handles are ideal for keeping your hands tight on the controller, game after game.

       -  SCUF’s Soft Touch finish means that your hands are comfortable and secure.

Be sure to keep a bottle of GamerGrip handy, especially when your teammates get slaughtered and you're facing down angry Vikings.
With Call of Duty: WWII getting its full release on November 3, it makes sense that gamers all over the world are desperate for some boots on the ground competition. And to satisfy that need for some classic run and gun action, Scuf Gaming is proud to host the Boots On The Ground Series by Courage and Hitch!

Featuring three invite-only competitions, the Boots On The Ground series is a perfect opportunity for CoD fans to watch some of their favorite players tickle those nostalgia glasses with multiplayer mayhem from Modern Warfare 2, Modern Warfare 3, and Black Ops 2.

The event begins this weekend with Modern Warfare 2, and continues all the way to the end of October. And the best part? All proceeds from the BOTG Series are going to charity!

Here’s the full tournament schedule:

BootsOnTheGround

Considering the fact that Scuf Gaming has its roots in boots on the ground combat, this is a competition that is close to the hearts of everyone at SCUF HQ. It was thanks to that style of multiplayer that terms like “SCUF Jump” and “SCUF Knife” have become household names since SCUF’s founding in 2011.

Be sure to visit Courage and Hitch's Twitch channels to catch all the throwback fun!
This Friday, August 22nd, UMG Dallas 2014 begins! With such a strong showing for #TeamSCUF Pro Teams at the recent Gfinity 3 tournament we couldn’t be more excited to see what the teams will bring this weekend.

Team EnVyUs will likely be the talk of the tournament after coming off such a strong victory at G3. A
15-1 win/loss map showing, and team member FormaL leading the entire tournament with a 1.35 KD has EnVy poised to keep their momentum going. To play like your favorite Pro’s from Team EnVyUs, check out the EnVy SCUF One HERE.

OpTic Gaming had a disappointing performance, to say the least, at the G3 tournament but that could very well be the motivation they needed to up their game for Dallas. Everyone knows the team can perform with the best, and this tournament is their change to remind us of that. Check out the new OpTic SCUF One controller HERE.

In a rare turn of events, OpTic Nation managed to finish higher than OG at the recent Gfinity Tournament. The team showed high level play during their bout to their 3rd place finish, and we expect to see them perform at Dallas as well. Check out the original OpTic SCUF One HERE.

FaZe Pro Team did well at G3 with their recent roster change adding Parasite and Apathy. Giving the team some time to better coordinate the players, FaZe could perform quite well this weekend. Pick up your own FaZe SCUF One HERE.

While not bringing the best performance at G3, we know Team Kaliber is capable of great things. The, relatively, recent roster change back to their original lineup should prove to be very formidable indeed, and we hope to see them “wow” us this weekend. Pick up your very own TK SCUF One HERE.

Curse Gaming was one man down at Gfinity with Tipsy not being able to play. Now that things are squared away, the squad should be in full force this upcoming weekend with great things expected. Click HERE to see the SCUF One Curse controller!

JusTus Pro has done nothing but improve as a team since their inception. Everyone will be interested to see what they bring to UMG Dallas this year and how much of a name they can make for themselves.

After not qualifying for Season 3, Strictly Business will have to play hard at UMG Dallas to remind everyone how formidable of a team they truly are. The addition of new teammate Phizzurp should also show their strength as a team. Pick up your very own Strictly Business SCUF One HERE.
