XiT Woundz is a former professional Halo team. Its most prominent lineup consisted of Corey "Bonfire" Howard, his brother Tyler "Itwasluck" Howard, Nick "KillerN" Urso and Sam "Samurai" Suyeyasu.


Halo 2

The very first incarnation of the team appeared at MLG Las Vegas 2005 as Exit Woundz. The team consisted of Corey "Bonfire" Howard, xusmcsnipax, Candescence and lBoAlxHaNgMaNx. The team took a top 12 finish at the event. A new ExiT Woundz lineup appeared at MLG Seattle 2005, consisting of Bonfire, his brother Tyler "Itwasluck" Howard, flanksterv2 and o0Dominator0o. They took an impressive 4th place finish at the event. The Howard brothers and Dominator then placed in the top 6 at MLG Los Angeles 2005 as Team Cellular Oasis (TcO). Following this placing, Cellular Oasis picked up Nick "KillerN" Urso and Sam "Samurai650" Suyeyasu. They finished 4th at MLG Atlanta 2005. The same roster returned at MLG Chicago 2005 as XiT Woundz. They upset Str8 Rippin in the LB Finals, losing only to Team 3D. Prior to the New York National Championships, XiT Woundz replaced KillerN with Halo legend Matt "Zyos" Leto. The new squad took 4th at Nationals.

During the offseason, XiT Woundz dropped Samurai and brought back KillerN. The team gained a sponsorship from CheckSix Gaming and attended MLG New York 2006 under their banner. They finished 4th. At MLG Dallas 2006, they returned to using the name XiT Woundz, and placed an uncharacteristic 7th. Following this, Zyos retired from competitive Halo. The remaining members of the team decided to bring back Samurai, citing the lack of chemistry and poor teamwork they had with Zyos, and the chemistry they had with Samurai. Over the remainder of the season, they would take 4th in Anaheim, 5th in Chicago and 4th in Orlando. At the New York Playoffs, they again finished in 4th. To win any prize money at the Las Vegas National Championships, they would have to place top 3. They failed to do so, losing consecutively and finishing in the bottom 2 for an 8th place finish.

XiT Woundz would continue to compete with various rosters, usually anchored by one or both of the Howard twins, over the next three years, but rarely place above the top 12.
