===Black Ops III===
After becoming known as a standout player in online tournaments, Gunless joined his first professional organization, [[Pnda Gaming]], a few months into the Call of Duty: Black Ops III season. Playing alongside other upcoming players from the Advanced Warfare season, [[JuJu]], [[Pemby]] and [[HumanJesus]], the team placed moderately well at a number of events, including a top 16 finish at [[UMG South Carolina 2016 Champion Tournament|UMG South Carolina]].
Despite not managing any outstanding placements during Black Ops III, Gunless' talent had not gone unnoticed, and for the Infinite Warfare season, he joined [[The Gosu Crew]], a new organization in Call of Duty esports. Now playing alongside [[DraMa]] and twins [[Arcitys]] and [[Prestinni]], the team surprised many in the initial online CWL 2K tournament, eliminating both reigning world champions [[Team Envy]], and [[Rise Nation]]. The team also qualified for the [[2017 CWL Las Vegas Open|Las Vegas Open]] through the online qualifiers. In Vegas, the team surprised once more, beating [[FaZe]] in the group stages, and making a losers bracket run, before a defeat to [[Enigma6]] eliminated them in 9-12th. However, this was a higher placing than had been anticipated for the team, and Gunless had been the standout player.
An opportunity arose with another recently formed organization, [[eUnited]], who's team disappointed at the Vegas event, placing top 24. Retaining captain [[SiLLY]], the team recruited the trio of [[Arcitys]], [[Prestinni]] and Gunless from The Gosu Crew and the team quickly gelled, winning their first [[MLG GameBattles 2K Series NA 2017-01-15|2K]] tournament together, shocking other competitive teams and fans. Fans doubted that the team's online performance would translate to offline tournaments however. But in one of the most notable underdog victories in competitive Call of Duty history, eUnited performed incredibly at the next event, [[2017 CWL Atlanta Open|CWL Atlanta]]. Beginning in groups, they swept their pool play opponents, finishing with a 4-0 record, dropping only 2 maps throughout. Once more, Gunless was the top performer, however the slaying provided by [[Prestinni]] and [[Arcitys]] also contributed. eUnited continued their run, taking out [[Splyce]], [[FaZe]] and [[Team Envy|Envy]] on their way to the grand finals. There, they matched up with OpTic Gaming, who were the pre-tournament favorites. Despite being swept 0-3 in the first best of 5, eUnited showed great composure, they won the second best of five 3-2. Gunless was awarded MVP for the tournament. At around this time a number of professional players thought of Gunless as the best player in Infinite Warfare.
Next for the team was trip to Europe for [[2017 CWL Paris Open|CWL Paris]], however the team failed to replicate their Atlanta performance overseas, as they were forced to play through the open bracket, and were eliminated by [[Splyce]]. However, back on North American soil, the team looked back to their best, once more reaching the grand final of [[2017 CWL Dallas Open|CWL Dallas]]. Once more coming up against [[OpTic Gaming|OpTic]], they were unable to overcome them, despite Gunless performing outstandingly individually. As eUnited had come from the losers bracket however, they were forced to beat OpTic Gaming twice and were unable to do so, falling in the game 5 in the second series.
Entering the stage 1 of the [[2017 CWL Global Pro League Stage 1|CWL Global Pro League]], the team had high ambitions of winning the $500,000 playoffs, but close losses to [[Enigma6]] in the first round, and subsequently [[Luminosity]], meant the team would face a disappointing and unexpected 5-6th finish.
Despite not winning Dallas or Stage 1, Gunless performances had thus far been the highlight of the IW season, and teams who had had a poor start to the year were keen to prize him away from eUnited. Rumors circled around [[Team Envy]] and [[Luminosity]], but most frequently for [[FaZe]]. Gunless initially posted a Twitlonger<ref> [https://www.dexerto.com/news/gunless-benches-eunited-contract-dispute/31015 Gunless Twitlonger on eU Contract] - ''dexerto.com''</ref> to claim that he had requested a move, but eUnited had denied it, as they felt they would not be able to receive a player of equal value in return, and as such had placed a $200,000 buy out clause on Gunless' contract. Throughout the conflict, Gunless chose to bench himself from the team, and refused to practice or play with the team at upcoming events, forcing eUnited to draft in [[Swarley]] as a substitute. In an interview, long time teammate [[Prestinni]] said that he "no longer liked Gunless" and that there was no way to solve the situation.<ref> [https://www.dexerto.com/news/eunited-exclusive-prestinni-interview-gunless-transfer-situation/31084 Prestinni Interview on relationship with Gunless] - ''dexerto.com''</ref> After a number of weeks of escalating rumors an agreement was reached between [[FaZe]] and [[eUnited]], to trade [[Clayster]] for Gunless who joined [[Attach]], [[ZooMaa]] and [[Enable]] as FaZe looked to put together a team capable to win the organization's first major event in a number of years.
The new FaZe roster began to practice together ahead of both [[2017 CWL Global Pro League Stage 2|Stage 2]] of the [[2017 CWL Global Pro League Stage 2|Global Pro League]], and the [[2017 Call of Duty World League Championship]], which boasted $700,000 and $1,500,000 in prizing respectively. Despite a strong showing the group stage of Stage 2, the team failed to make a run at the playoffs, finishing 5-6th, eliminated by OpTic. At the World Championship, the team managed the same placing, again after a strong showing in groups. They were beaten comfortably by [[OpTic Gaming|OpTic]] 3-0, and then subsequently by [[Rise Nation]], in a heartbreaking game 5. Regardless, the 5-6th placing ended a highly successful season for Gunless overall, in which he won over $70,000 in tournament prize winnings. It is regarded as one of the fastest rise's of a player in professional Call of Duty, throughout a single season.
===World War II===
Due to the ultimately disappointing placing's while on the [[FaZe Clan|FaZe]] roster, Gunless and the team parted ways. It was announced shortly before the release of the game that Gunless would be joining [[Echo Fox]], alongside a number of high profile players - [[Saints]] from [[Luminosity]], [[Faccento]] from [[Rise Nation]] and [[Assault]] from [[Cloud9]]. Although all regarded as top players, the team had a difficult start to the season, as they struggled in the opening online CWL 2K tournaments. Successive top 32 finishes in these online tournaments left the team in a dire situation for Pro Points, which would be necassary to qualify for pool play at the first event of the season, [[2018 CWL Dallas Open|CWL Dallas]].
The team attended the event and were forced to fight through the open bracket. However, they overcame the challenge, managing to run through all the amateur teams they faced. Once there, the team proved that they were more than at the level of pool play competition, finishing 2nd in their group, and moving on to the winners bracket. Despite falling to eventual champions [[Team Kaliber]] in their winners round 1 match, they continued their run in the losers bracket, until it was cut short by [[Splyce]]. Their 5-6th placing however was a still a marked achievement as a team coming from open bracket.
Following the event, the roster at the time of [[Next Threat]] disbanded, as [[Methodz]] wanted to explore his options. Methodz was one of the standout players at the time, and was a hot commodity for teams. [[Rise Nation]] were keen to shake up their roster, and wanted [[Methodz]] and one other player. The decision was made by [[Rise Nation|Rise]] to trade [[AquA]] for Gunless, and as [[FeLo]] left to join [[compLexity]], [[Methodz]] joined.
At the upcoming [[2018 CWL New Orleans Open|CWL New Orleans]], the new Rise team performed exceedingly well, as they made a losers bracket run after being beaten in winners once more by eventual winners [[tK]]. Rise firstly eliminated [[Splyce]] and then Gunless' former team [[Echo Fox]]. After the conclusion of the Echo Fox match, Gunless stood up and shouted across at his former teammates, audibly taunting them for the decision to drop him. Rise managed one further victory over [[Red Reserve EU]], before they were eliminated in 3rd place by runners-up [[Luminosity]]. The placing was Gunless' highest since his 2nd place finish with [[eUnited]] at [[2017 CWL Dallas Open|CWL Dallas]], almost a year prior.
