Ultimate Audio Bang podcast: all things FPS merch

Been there, headshot that, got the t-shirt

I've returned from my trip to the Lake District, with aching calves and a desire to talk about online shooters with Imogen. On this week's episode of the Ultimate Audio Bang, we don't chat sore muscles, instead, we focus on various Halloween events in games like Apex Legends and Rainbow Six: Siege, our thoughts on the Battlefield 2042 beta, Destiny 2 vaulting yet more stuff, and Call Of Duty: Vanguard finally introducing anti-cheat.

The theme this week? Gaming merch and how we feel about it owning it, wearing it, and popping it on our shelves. We come to a consensus: body pillows are good.

It was my turn to surprise Imogen with some names I'd plucked from in-game lobbies. Immediately, I divert proceedings into a chat about reality TV and food; this will never get old for me. Imogen's turn next time, and I look forward to it.

When Ed's not cracking thugs with bicycles in Yakuza, he's likely swinging a badminton racket in real life. Any genre goes, but he's very into shooters and likes a weighty gun, particularly if they have a chainsaw attached to them. Adores orange and mango squash, unsure about olives.
