Matthew “Skrapz” Marshall, a Call of Duty (CoD) player from the United Kingdom, is planning to make his comeback to competitive Call of Duty after an absence of more than a year.
According to recent sources, the formerly of FaZe Clan and Fnatic player will be joining the North American Challengers roster along with American starlets ‘Hamza’ Shaikh and Carlos ‘Venom’ Hernandez, both formerly of the Los Angeles Thieves, and seasoned veteran Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo.
This information was initially shared on Twitter by IntelCDL, and the message made reference to numerous rosters via the North American Call of Duty Challengers spreadsheet.
The spreadsheet was displayed by Call of Duty star Doug “Censor” Martin on his Twitch stream earlier this week.

Skrapz is a legend in the world of Call of Duty esports. He has been competing in the game since Black Ops 3, and he has represented teams like FaZe Clan, Epsilon, and Unilad. In the CWL’s 2018 Pro League Stage Two, he was a member of the Red Reserve squad that finished with the best win/loss record in the competition (11/3), achieving a series victory rate of 79% and having the best win/loss record overall.
The participation of the British player with the London Royal Ravens in the inaugural season of the Call of Duty League (CDL) in 2019 is what the player is most remembered for. As seen in this Call of Duty League video of Skrapz, one particularly memorable play was made by him against his future employers, the Paris Legion. He started 12-0 to kick off a St. Petrograd Domination in map three of their semi-final match at the Raven’s own home series. This match was part of the Raven’s own home series.
Skrapz’s most recent competition in the CDL took place during the Black Ops: Cold War season in 2021. During that season, he participated on behalf of the Paris Legion, which is no longer active (now known as Las Vegas Legion). Skrapz was unable to be successful during that season, despite the various accomplishments he had obtained in his career up until that point. Legion finished in last place in the overall rankings and concluded the year with a win/loss record of 8-22.
Later on, he surprised the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community by announcing his retirement from the game at the end of that season on a Twitch stream alongside his twin brother, Bradley “Wuskin” Marshall, who was a previous teammate of his for the London Royal Ravens.
Midway through the 2022 Vanguard season, though, rumors of the legendary player from the UK making a comeback to competitive play began to circulate. This matter was brought to a climax when Skrapz, over the course of the past week, sent a series of tweets in which he hinted at his impending return. This pretty much established beyond a reasonable doubt that the Englishman would be returning to the action on the professional arena.
It wasn’t just Skrapz’s name that came up in the roster leaks; other UK players were mentioned as well. It was discovered that Toronto Ultra’s substitute player Charlie ‘Hicksy’ Hicks was playing on a squad with former CDL (non-UK) professionals David ‘Davpadie’ Malowski, Kenyen ‘Capsidal’ Sutton, and Tom ‘GRVTY’ Malin.
Elliot ‘WarDy’ Ward, the new substitute for the New York Subliners, was also spotted on the spreadsheet. He will be playing with John ‘Johnny’ Cookson and Ulysses ‘AquA’ Silva, both formerly of the Paris Legion, as well as Pat ‘Cryptic,’ a player who previously competed for the Stallions.
In addition, Sean “Seany” O’Connor, a Scotsman who formerly played for the London Royal Ravens and is now a member of the Boston Breach Academy roster, made an appearance. He is a teammate of Ben “Beans” McMellon, a fellow Brit who is currently serving as a substitute for the Boston Breach, as well as former FaZe Clan player Doug “Censor” Martin and newcomer “Kremp.”
Due to the ongoing uncertainty that surrounds Challengers and the competitive Call of Duty landscape in general, these squads may be subject to change within a matter of weeks, if not days, as rostermania continues. Nevertheless, it is exciting to witness the comeback of a true great from the United Kingdom in the very competitive setting of Call of Duty.
