‘Call of Duty’ Gets a Second Replacer and Fariko Impact Wins Big

Call of Duty Champions

This past weekend, 32 teams of four took up arms in the ultimate XBox Call of Duty Championship. In the end, it was the team Fariko Impact that took home the gold and $400,000 cash prize. Damon “Karma” Barlow, Adam “Killa” Sloss, Marcus “MiRx,” and team captain Chris “Parasite” Duarte (collectively known as Fariko Impact) faced off against EnVyUs in the final round Sunday after the three day tournament.

Fariko Impact would emerge victorious with the winner’s share of the $1,000,000 total pot. But don’t feel too bad for EnVyUs as the second place team would walk home with $200,000 themselves and third place team OpTic Gaming taking $120,000 with them.

Also revealed this past weekend alongside the images of the new Uprising DLC Map Pack was the latest Replacer trailer. After the original Replacer was revealed, it would only be a matter of time before more Call of Duty: Black Ops II players would need to call upon the services of these men in black.

This time, original Replacer Peter Stormare is joined by J.B. Smoove. This time, as you’ll see in the trailer below, the Replacers find themselves in even more awkward scenarios, the kind it takes two people to tackle.

You’ll also see footage of the four new multiplayer maps in the Uprising DLC pack, Magma, Encore, Vertigo, and Studio, as well as the new Zombies map “Mob of the Dead” where four of Hollywood’s most iconic mobsters look to escape from Alcatraz. The men behind Henry Hill (Ray Liotta), Sonny LoSpecchio (Chazz Palminteri), Ralph Cifaretto (Joe Pantoliano), and Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) take on a new set of roles as four Mafioso trying to survive a prison under siege. In addition to seeing Billy Handsome, “Sal” DeLuca, Al “The Weasel” Arlington, Salvatore and Michael “Finn” O’Leary, respectively, try to survive as their escape plans are foiled, players also get to experience “purgatory” too for the first time in Call of Duty’s infamous zombie mode. Uprising is set for release April 16th on XBox Live and later to the PlayStation 3.
