The gaming world mourns the 21-year-old esports professional
Notable Call Of Duty players such as Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, Seth “Scump” Abner, Ian “Crimsix” Porter and more have reacted to the death of Maurice “Fero” Henriquez.
Henriquez’s death was announced on Wednesday (November) by his family through his official Twitter account. His current team, the Florida Mutineers, later revealed the player’s cause of death as “multiple heart attacks”. It’s currently unknown when exactly Henriquez passed.
The professional Call Of Duty player had also been part of popular esports organisations, such as 100 Thieves, Team Envy, Reckless, Team Kaliber and more, prior to his death. Many of his former teammates and other professional players have since paid tribute to Henriquez on social media.
“The Call of Duty world is hurting tonight for you, Fero,” said Haag, former CoD professional player and current CEO of 100 Thieves. “Let this be a reminder to all of us how fragile life can be so we can continue to cherish the friendships and memories that we’ve created over the last decade together as a community.”
Crimsix, one of the 2020 World Champions under Dallas Empire, said that Henriquez was “a good person and also a true competitor”. He added: “Everyone liked him yet everyone also respected him as well. He probably never knew this but I always wished that I could be more like him in that regard.”
Other CoD world champions that have paid tribute to Fero include Jordan “JKap” Kaplan, Seth “Scump” Abner, James “Clayster” Eubanks and more.
The official accounts of his former teams – 100 Thieves and Team Envy – have also paid homage to Henriquez.
