New tank Fusions leads Uprising to victory over Houston Outlaws
Boston Uprising’s Cameron “Fusions” Bosworth led his team to a 3-2 victory over the Houston Outlaws, using his role as shotcaller to help his team get its first win of the Overwatch League Season 2.
Boston Uprising announced just five days ago that Fusions would be promoted from Uprising Academy to the main roster after he continued to impress the organization with Winston and Reinhardt. Despite being a newcomer to Boston’s lineup, coach Chris “HuK” Loranger revealed that Fusions was already one of the team’s main shotcallers, a common role for tank mains.
Once a member of the British Hurricanes and Toronto Esports, the analysts dubbed Fusions as the new face of the Boston Uprising.
One standout play by the Uprising involved the entire team piling onto a moving platform on Volkskaya Industries, using it to close in on Point B from the high ground. Fusions protecting his team with Reinhardt’s shield as they scrambled to stay on the platform proved both entertaining and effective, and Boston went on to take the map 4-3.
It was made clear that Fusions has taken his new responsibility seriously when he was pulled aside for a post-game interview. His voice cracked while he gave his answers, hoarse from constant communication on stage.
“Playing on this stage is something else. Playing with Overwatch League-level players, you learn a lot really quickly,” Fusions said.
The Boston Uprising will face Shanghai Dragons next, which means Fusions will be playing against former Uprising tank Young-Jin “Gamsu” Noh. The sudden trade came as a surprise to Boston fans, but Fusions has already proven himself a worthy replacement.
Fusions said it will be interesting to face Gamsu, but was sure to add that Boston will come out victorious.
