Nadeshot’s gaming handle originates from a move in the “Halo” video game series called a “grenade shot.” He was a competitive amateur in “Halo 2,” a first-person shooter game, but he switched to “Gears of War,” a third-person tactical shooter game, after receiving the game as a Christmas gift. In 2007, Nadeshot missed qualifying for MLG (Major League Gaming) Chicago by just one slot in “Gears of War” play. The following year, he competed in his first online professional tournament, and he made his professional debut at the age of 16 on “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.” He joined OpTic Gaming in mid-2010, and he became OpTic Gaming’s captain in 2014 after the resignation of Will “BigTymer” Johnson.
