Fnatic have finally officially revealed their fifth player for the organization’s VALORANT roster. Joining Jake “Boaster” Howlett and co. is Andrey “BraveAF” Gorchakov. The move comes in as a result of the team’s decision to bench Domagoj “Doma” Fancev shortly after VALORANT Champions concluded.

Fnatic sign braveAF

braveAF joins the Fnatic team all the way from Russia. Having competed in the CIS region, braveAF played for Team Empire, tyeasy, and One Breath Gaming. However, he has been left without a team after OBG let him go mid-August in 2021.

The newest arrival to Fnatic has the majority of matches played on agent Sova. Still, he has dipped his toes with Skye, Raze, and Breach as well. It is clear that the Russian-born prefers playing initiator-type agents in VALORANT. This is a welcome addition for Fnatic and the team’s coach, Jacob “Mini” Harris, seems ecstatic about the team’s addition and how it’s shaping up for the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour season.

We wanted to change roles for 2022, giving Boaster more flexibility as the IGL-support player. Looking for a confident Sova player, Brave represented the things we value in-game: great aim and intelligent utility usage, as well as the things we value out of game: a hunger to improve and being a positive teammate. Like our previous pickups, we feel we have found another highly skilled player with huge potential. As a Russian, Brave also gets the secret “playing the agent from your region” buff!

Coach Mini, Fnatic
