Arkel "Snakey" Brown is a British player for Mazer Gaming.
Snakey has been competing in Halo since 2014. He is a bartender and is currently studying Accounting in college.
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
Snakey and Flamez joined up with GodShot and Havoc for Multiplay Insomnia 54, competing as Insight. They finished 4th. 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.
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.
