FaZe Clan has stepped into the new CS2 era of competition determined to break and set a few records to their name.

During the IEM Sydney 2023, FaZe Clan showcased its prowess by winning the tournament and also secured the first-ever 13-0 sweep in CS2 by handing a humiliating defeat to ENCE on Anubis.
