Snip3down officially joins FaZe Clan’s Halo Infinite roster
The distinguished veteran has announced his departure from TSM in order to return to Halo.
FaZe Gaming announced the acquisition of the Halo roster known as Inconceivable in a video broadcast on Twitter. Jesse “bubu dubu” Moeller, Michael “Falcated” Garcia, and Adam “Bound” Gray will join Snip3down, who is widely regarded as one of the best Halo players of all time.

FaZe Clan is an HCS-affiliated competitive squad that receives a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of the organization’s skins in Halo Infinite’s item shop.
Inconceivable had a solid start in a competitive sector even before joining the world’s most lucrative esports organization. They finished third in the last qualifying event for the $250,000 HCS Kickoff Major, which will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, on December 17-19.
The FaZe statement came after TSM officially ended their relationship with Snip3down. Snip3down reflected on the risks he was taking by leaving a top-tier Apex squad and returning to Halo in a poignant goodbye to his time as a member of TSM’s competitive Apex team.
“Knowing what I was leaving behind, this was arguably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make in my life,” he added. “You never know what’s going to happen in life, but you have to take risks now and then, and I’m excited to see where it takes me.”
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
Today we part ways with @Snip3down. Watching you and the boys over the last year has been a joy. We thank you for everything you brought to #TSM and we wish you nothing but the best for your return to Halo ✊ pic.twitter.com/xLVUsTMUvU

While a worldwide LAN event slated for the Apex in early 2022 was recently postponed due to worries about the omicron form of the coronavirus, six in-person Halo competitions in the United States are set for the HCS’ first year. Furthermore, the competitive scene enjoys widespread grassroots support, enthusiasm for its potential viewership, and an esports-ready finance mechanism for organizations. The Halo era is about to begin, and Snip3down’s next chapter will undoubtedly be one to watch.
