Arkel "Snakey" Brown is a Player for Mazer Gaming. He is well known for his time with Team Infused and Team Vibe.

Biography

Snakey has been competing in Halo since 2014. He is a bartender and is currently studying Accounting in college.

Halo 3

Snakey first started competing during the European Halo 3 competitive revival. He first attended Multiplay Insomnia 51 as a member of Reign alongside Deany, Wardy and Jayo. They won the event, giving Snakey his first ever event win in his first major event. Snakey and Deany then joined forces with Flamez and Snipedrone to represent VwS Gaming at Multiplay Insomnia 52. They won the event, racking up another £600.

Halo 2: Anniversary

The VwS roster stuck together going into the new title. They took a less impressive top 6 placing at both Insomnia 53 and the Gfinity Halo 2: Anniversary LAN Championship. After Gfinity, Flamez and Snakey left VwS to join Insight eSports alongside GodShot and Havoc. They finished 4th at Insomnia 54. Snakey and Flamez would again part ways with their teammates, joining CAZ eSports alongside Vard and Hollers. The roster's only tournament together was the Gamescom Invitational 2015 Halo 5 exhibition tournament, where they finished bottom two out of four teams. Snakey was then reunited with GodShot as CAZ made a roster change, replacing Hollers with Snakey and Flamez' former teammate. The move paid off, with CAZ finishing 2nd at Multiplay Insomnia 55.

Halo 5: Guardians

Prior to Multiplay Insomnia 56, the CAZ roster was acquired by Barrage eSports. They finished 3rd at the event. Shortly after Insomnia 56, the roster changed hands again, now being acquired by exceL eSports and making a roster change, replacing Flamez and Vard with GodShot and Lunny, hoping to qualify for Halo World Championship 2016. They would first have to qualify for the EMEA Regional Finals through the Gfinity UK qualifying circuit. At Halo World Championship Tour: London, exceL finished 4th, failing to earn a spot at Regionals. They then made modifications to the roster, replacing theHavoc and GodShot with Riotz and CreepeazY. The new squad finished 1st in the UK Last Chance Qualifier, earning a spot in the Regional Finals. At Regionals, exceL qualified for Worlds with a strong 2nd place finish. At Worlds, exceL finished top 16, taking home $25,000.

Snakey qualified for HCS Pro League Summer 2016 as a member of Online Warriors alongside Mose, Respectful and Kimbo. Shortly after qualifying, Online Warriors were picked up by U4X eSports. Despite a nearly perfect 6-0 start to the season, U4X released Snakey after Week 3. He joined Team Vibe alongside SeptiQ, Riotz and Lunny shortly after. With Snakey on board, Vibe managed to rise to 4th in the standings, enough to qualify for Finals. At the Finals, they finished 3rd.

During the offseason, Vibe replaced Lunny and Riotz with Snipedrone and Qristola. Vibe's performance improved dramatically with the roster changes, as they finished in 2nd place with a 7-3 record. At the Season Finals, Vibe came out flat in their opening match against Team Infused, losing 4-2. In the Losers' Semifinals, they looked to rebound against PuLse Gaming, but were defeated 4-1 by the strong French squad. This resulted in Vibe finishing 4th.

During the offseason, Snakey and Qristola left Vibe to join Team Infused alongside Phlux and Kimbo. The new Infused's first task was qualifying for Halo World Championship 2017. To do so, they'd need a top 2 finish at Gfinity London 2017. After a narrow 3-2 loss to FAB Games eSports in the Winners' Finals, Infused were upset in a 4-3 loss to Supremacy in the Losers' Finals, resulting in a heartbreaking 3rd place finish. The following week, Infused finished 3rd once again in the Last Chance Qualifier, with Snipedrone having replaced Qristola.

Going into the Summer Pro League, Infused made two major roster changes, with Phlux and Snipedrone being replaced by Batchford and Quadios. Despite a 2-0 start to the season, Batchford was dropped, replaced by Respectful. With Respectful on board, Infused finished first in the season with a nearly perfect record, dropping only one map with the new roster over three matches and qualifying for a spot in the Championship Bracket at DreamHack Atlanta. In Atlanta, Infused were able to beat European rivals Vexed Gaming, but could not put a dent in the two American squads they faced - Splyce and Evil Geniuses, falling 3-0 to both teams and finishing in the top twelve.

Following Atlanta, Snakey left Infused to team with Ramirez, Phlux and Snipedrone. After placing highly in two of the EU Circuit cups, the team was signed by exceL eSports. After finishing third in the final open cup, exceL attended Gfinity London, where they finished a surprising top six after losses to Supremacy and Vexed Gaming. Still without a DreamHack Denver seed, exceL were able to win the LCQ and gain entry into the NA finals event. earning themselves the #2 seed in the Denver Open Bracket. After an inspiring Losers Bracket run following an early loss, exceL earned a spot in the Championship Bracket, where they lost back-to-back (to OpTic Gaming and Supremacy) and took a top sixteen finish.

Going into Halo World Championship 2018 season, Snakey spent a week teaming with Ramirez, Batchford, and Morguhhh. He and Morguhhh soon left to join Soaring alongside SLG and Qristola. The following week, Morguhhh was gone, replaced by Fragxr. This roster was signed by Fable Esports on February 4. At MLG Orlando, Fable were able to secure a top twelve finish by defeating Mindfreak before being eliminated by Oxygen Supremacy. Fable made it to round four at Gfinity London before being knocked out by Vexed Gaming. In the losers bracket, they 3-0d Mock-it Esports (for the second time) to clinch their Worlds spot before securing top three with a 4-2 win over Myztro Gaming. They were then sent home in third by Vexed Gaming.
