Methodz's History

Modern Warfare 3

Despite starting to compete in Modern Warfare 2, Methodz would make his LAN debut during the MW3 season, appearing at NJ Halo Codzilla 2012 on vD with Scump, NaDeSHoT and Blfire.

The squad won the event beating Collapse in the Grand Final.

Methodz would go on to compete in one more event that year (UMG Fort Lee 2012) where he placed third.


Black Ops 2

Methodz spent a large portion of his Black Ops 2 season with Soar Gaming and his worst placing during the year was a top eight at the MLG Winter Championship 2013.

His best placement was second at his final event of the year at UMG Dallas - he won $5,000.


The year started off with Methodz under SoaR Gaming, playing next to Heist, Saint and Whea7s - the team didn't stay together long after a top sixteen finish at the MLG Winter Championship 2012.

A brief stint on FaZe Clan rewarded him with another top-eight finish, before settling on Strictly Business.

UGC Niagra was the first event for Methodz with John, StaiNViLLe, Spacely and they finished to six. The next two events they fell to a disappointing top twenty-four finish.


His last event was with Aware Gaming, finishing top twelve at UMG Nashville.


Advanced Warfare

Methodz took a break from competing during the first jetpack Call of Duty game, only attending two events.

His first event was MLG Columbus Open 2014 - he teamed with TcM, Heist and Jump under Elevate placing top thirty-two.

The second event was UMG Orlando 2015 - he teamed with FeLo, TcM and MBoZe under SYNRGY Gaming placing top six.

Black Ops 3


The Black Ops 3 season saw Methodz join CLG, apart from a second place at ETG 11, there was little to shout about.

Methodz was now eligible to compete in the CWL and attend his first COD Champs - where he placed top twenty-four with Most Wanted.

Infinite Warfare

Methodz joined Echo Fox in the new season and got off to a hot start with a top sixteen finish at Las Vegas.

However, they could never recover their form as they placed top thirty-two and top twenty-eight twice.

Once again he made it to COD Champs, once again placing top twenty-four.



WWII was where the young veteran got a real break within the scene.

Methodz began on Next Threat with Censor, Ricky and Nagafen. Their opening event at Las Vegas ended in a top sixteen finish, after making it through the open bracket.

They placed fourth at the Northern Arena Showdown, to the shock of many and Methodz received wide praise for his performances in respawn game modes.

His display resulted in a call up from Echo Fox, who tried to resign him, but he ended up joining Rise.

Loony, TJHaly and Gunless got off to a good start, placing third at New Orleans.

They then went on to place first at Atlanta - ending Methodz winning drought of almost six years.

The team even placed top of their Pro League division and third at CWL Birmingham.


Methodz made a brief appearance for Team Kaliber at Seattle, where they placed top six, before joining OpTic Gaming for the rest of the season.

The team won their Pro League division, but couldn't get past a top eight at the playoffs and had a poor showing at COD Champs; finishing top twenty-four.

Black Ops 4

Black Ops 4 saw Methodz settle with UYU after failing to qualify for the Pro League with G2 Esports.

UYU rarely made the headlines during the season, their best placement came at the Playoffs; placing top four.

Their COD Champs run came to an end with a top twenty-four placing - Methodz has never made it past the top twenty-four stage in COD Champs and has finished here for all four events he has attended.
