Call of Duty professional player Preston “Prestinni” Sanderson is reuniting with his twin brother Alec “Arcitys” Sanderson by joining the Atlanta FaZe as a substitute.
The former Seattle Surge member was released from the organization after an unsuccessful year of online play. After it was announced that he would no longer be on the Seattle Surge roster, Prestinni tweeted that he did not know what he would be doing in the future.
As roster moves began to circulate, Prestinni was left out of the conversation for teams’ starting rosters. Despite the lack of rumors surrounding team offers, Prestinni had not announced his retirement from Call of Duty like several others had during the offseason. Now, Prestinni steps back into the Call of Duty scene, this time as a substitute rather than someone on the main roster.
Prestinni joins Arcitys on Atlanta FaZe
Prestinni and Arcitys have been competing in Call of Duty for years. They won their first rings together at the end of the Black Ops 4 season on eUnited and previously teamed together on the Chicago Huntsmen at the end of Modern Warfare. However, the brothers have not always been side by side. At the start of Modern Warfare, Arcitys joined the Chicago Huntsmen while Prestinni went to play for Florida. This was the first time that the twins had played for different teams. But, in the end, Prestinni returned to his brother’s side to make a deep run at Champs in 2020.

In the 2021 season, when the game shifted from 5v5 to 4v4, Arcitys and Prestinni were released from the Chicago Huntsmen. Once again, the twins went their separate ways with Arcitys joining Atlanta FaZe while Prestinni joined Seattle Surge. The two played against each other only a handful of times, including when Seattle Surge upset the Atlanta FaZe during the first LAN event since the COVID-19 pandemic began.
In one way or another, the twins always seem to find a way back to one another in Call of Duty. This time, Prestinni is taking a step back from the limelight to support his brother and Atlanta FaZe as a substitute for the 2022 Call of Duty League season.
