The San Francisco Shock announced the acquisition of DPS player Kwon "Striker" Nam-joo from the Boston Uprising as part of a transfer agreement.

Known for his Tracer and Widowmaker play, Striker helped the Uprising put together the first undefeated stage in Overwatch League history during Season 1. With San Francisco, Striker will be reunited with former Boston coach Park "Crusty" Dae-hee.

The Shock made the announcement on Twitter with a video showing Crusty working in a kitchen. When he mixes ingredients, a picture of Striker appears followed by highlights of his Overwatch play.

"Chef @ShockCrusty is cooking something special for Season 2 of @OverwatchLeague...," the post read. "One ingredient was missing... Until now"

The Shock's roster is now maxed out with 12 players following a busy offseason.
