Fariko Impact was a Call of Duty team sponsored by Fariko Gaming. The team later rebranded to Impact.

History

Fariko Impact formed at the beginning of Black Ops 2 with a roster of KiLLa, Karma, John and TuQuick. They competed at their first event at Frag Cup IV, which was an online tournament hosted by Machinima. They placed well, coming 3rd and taking away $1000 in prize money. They would then go on to UMG Chicago with the same roaster and place similarly well, once again taking away $1000 from a 3rd place finish. However, at this point they were stilling looking to go that extra mile to take away a championship, and they would do this under the Fariko brand with MiRx and Parasite coming in for John and TuQuick.

With their new pick ups of MiRx and Parasite, Impact were looking to take the ever-growing CoD eSports community by storm. They went into the MLG Winter Championship in Dallas with high hopes and were able to come away with 1st place, taking away $20,000 after beating a UNiTE squad with a very strong Clayster. The team would then look to bring this momentum and dominance into the biggest Call of Duty event of the year, the Call of Duty Championship 2013 to compete for their share of $1,000,000. They found themselves with a difficult bracket but they managed to take down Epsilon eSports, SoaR Gaming, OpTic Gaming and compLexity Gaming before facing off against Team EnVyUs in the winners bracket final. They faced off in a close series, with it coming down to a Round 11 Search and Destroy on map 5. EnVyUs managed to pull it out, despite Parasite’s best efforts with his renowned DSR, and knocked Impact into the Losers Bracket. Impact managed to beat OpTic in the Losers Final to face EnVyUs once again for round 2- this time in the Championship Final for $400,000. The series was close once again, with it coming down to a map 11 SnD. However, this time on Meltdown, KiLLa was able clutch a 1v1 vs ProoFy in round 10 to take home the $400,000 and a third consecutive championship. They would then win their fourth consecutive Championship at UMG St. Louis, once again beating EnVyUs in the finals.

Following their 1st place finish at UMG St. Louis and a dispute with Fariko, Parasite announced that his team would be leaving the Fariko organization to pursue and build their own brand of "Impact".
