Christopher "Parasite" Duarte is a professional Call of Duty player who is currently a Free Agent.

Biography

Call of Duty 4 and Black Ops

Chris "Parasite" Duarte has been playing video games his entire life, he first started playing competitively in Call of Duty 4, competing on the online pro circuit events. Parasite really started to show his skills in Call of Duty: Black Ops at the first ever Call of Duty MLG event in Dallas 2011. Parasite went with a seemingly unknown team, Ground Zero, and placed 4th overall at the event. Parasite would then join apeX.Collapse for the remainder of the season, placing 2nd at MLG Raleigh and fourth at MLG National Championship 2011 in Providence.

Modern Warfare 3

Chris would stay on Apex going into the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Season, along with Dedo, Lyar, and Nameless. Here, he would continue to excell, placing 1st at the UMG Championships and at Insomnia 46. From there, he would join Team EnVyUs, where they would place 3rd at EGL 8.

Black Ops 2

Parasite continued his success into Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, where he is most known for being the captain of Fariko Impact, teaming with Karma, Mirx, and Killa. Along with Parasites' strong anchoring skills, Impact and their deadly hardpoint game went on to win four straight major events in a row including MLG Winter Championship, EGL 9, Call of Duty Championship, and UMG St. Louis. Later, he would team with Mboze, Nameless, and Ricky on UNiTE Gaming, where they would hand the juggernaut compLexity their only loss (with money on the line) at the MLG PAX Prime Invitational. Chris would finish out Black Ops 2 on this team, finishing 8th and 3rd at their last two tournaments.

Ghosts

Going into Call of Duty:Ghosts, Parasite, along with Nameless, MiRx, and Stainville, would join under Curse to form Curse LV. The team would come off to a rocky start, finishing 10th at MLG Fall Championship. The teams only 1st place finish would come in the online Call of Duty Winter Invitational, but would find two 3rd place finishes along the way. For a short time, Chris would even join OpTic Gaming, before returning to Curse, along with Ricky. To the surprise of many, Curse LV, consisting of 3 out of 4 players from the championship team from Black Ops 2, would fail to qualify for the Call of Duty Championship 2014. Eventually, Parasite would leave Curse, briefly joining FaZe Black, before settling down with Team EnVyUs. Here, he joined Nameless, MerK, and StuDyy, taking the spot of Rambo. He would find some success with the team, finishing 2nd at UGC Niagara and 4th at the MLG X Games Invitational. Before the start of the Season 3 online league, Parasite would be released/leave EnVyUs, and decided he wanted to team with Censor, Dedo, and Apathy on FaZe. After swapping Dedo with Karma in an exchange with Evil Geniuses, he (along with FaZe Clan) took a first place finish at UMG Nashville 2014.
