When Halo Infinite dropped, Eric “Snip3down” Wrona announced that he would be leaving competitive Apex Legends to make a return to Halo.

Snip3down has earned over $1.5 Million USD from Halo esports
Snip3down is not only one of the most successful Halo players of all time but he was also a part of TSM’s Apex Legends squad which was regarded by many as the best in the world during the first two years of release. Snip3down had mentioned that he wanted to return to competitive Apex Legends on numerous occasions and had even played several casual tournaments during his time with Halo Infinite.

Snip3down said on Twitter that he would not have left Apex Legends if he knew about this change. He said that he regrets his decision, and other pros also criticized the organizers.

He himself leaked the roster on stream earlier this year and he will be staying with FaZe Clan but now he will be in the Apex Legends division. TSM’s Mac Kenzie "Albralelie" Beckwith and SlurpeeG are expected to be a part of the roster. An official announcement is pending but we can expect to hear from FaZe Clan once the team announcements for next year’s Global Series start rolling in.
