Call of Duty League side LA Guerrillas have confirmed they have replaced Reece "Vivid" Drost with Martin "Cheen" Chino in their roster prior to Stage Three of the competition beginning this weekend.

"Cheen" previously represented OpTic Gaming LA, before their rebranding as the Los Angeles Thieves, but joined the Guerrillas academy back in October last year.

And although it has not been a disappointing season from the LA Guerrillas, they have opted to make a roster change as they look to climb the standings.

They currently sit eighth in the CDL regular season standings with a 5-9 match record, having accrued 70 CDL points. They have however enjoyed notable victories against LA Thieves and the division's pacesetters Atlanta FaZe this term.

Finishing bottom at the Stage Two major this month was an indicator something needed to change and as well as replacing "Vivid", who has been with the organization since February 2020, with "Cheen", there is also set to be a role change.

Justin "SiLLY" Fargo-Palmer is set to take up a submachine gun role with "Cheen" widely regarded as an assault rifle player during his CDL career.

Speaking in the team's announcement video, LA Guerrillas head coach Embry "Bevils" Bevil said: "[Vivid] was given the option to stay on the roster.

"However, earlier this week, we ultimately decided that it would be in both parties' best interest to explore other options."

Meanwhile, LA Guerrillas are 2.75 to beat Paris Legion, who are 1.40 to win, in the Call of Duty League on Saturday.
