He has a sister.
It was originally Hawks42 after his favorite baseball team and lucky number.
methodz grew up playing video games, but only really got into them when he broke his foot twice during the 7th Grade and found himself indoors with a lot more time on his hands.
He first got into Call of Duty with COD 4 when he was around 9 years old and his friend got it on his Xbox, and he would go over to play it on his account. Later that year, his parents bought him a PlayStation 3 as a holiday gift and his aunt also bought him COD 4. After playing the campaign for a while, he discovered that there was also an online option and began playing with other people across the globe. That was how he met his in-game friend, IWillPoneYou (later Energy) who introduced him to Game Battles.
As he progressed in the game, he managed to play with better players and with COD: World at War he started playing Radar and managed to get onto a team called Aftershock. Then, during COD: Modern Warfare 2, his parents got him an Xbox and he moved to that platform instead. He started playing even more after that, as many of both his IRL and online friends got Xboxes as well.
He didn’t work hard in school and clowned around a lot. Fortunately, even though his mom wanted to confiscate his game system as punishment, his dad wouldn’t let her because he was winning money from online tournaments. He did decide to focus more in his senior year, though. He graduated from high school in June 2015 and then went on to college.
His first tournament was a ProAm event in Philadelphia in 2012, where he won major tournament alongside Nadeshot, Scump and BlfIre during COD: MW3 He uploaded his first YouTube video in June 2012 and his efforts paid off, as he landed a spot on Soar in early 2013 and then FaZe Clan in May 2013. However, as he was underage, he was only able to compete in regular tournaments, but not championships, so he was dropped from FaZe soon after. In the years that followed, this pattern repeated until he turned 18 and was finally able to compete fully.
He first attempted streaming in November 2013, but did so very occasionally until March 2020, when the COVID lockdown hit. However, a few months later her became a bit less consistent until March 2021 when he began grinding seriously again.
He joined Rise Nation in December 2017. However, he was released from the roster in April 2018 but joined Team Kaliber a few days later. However, barely a month later, in transpired that Team Kaliber had sold his contract to OpTic Gaming, and so he transferred to their roster instead. Unfortunately, this was also short-lived, as he was released from that roster in September that year. He then returned to FaZe as part of their FaZe Black roster the following month. He remained with them for the full season before moving to Toronto Ultra’s inaugural COD roster in October 2019. He represented them on their main roster until he was benched in May 2021.
In October 2020, he decided to team up with two of his friends from his Call of Duty: Ghosts days to partner with them in their clothing brand project: Better Days Ahead. 10% of their earnings go towards mental health charities.
His language isn’t clean.
