Best Halo Players of All Time: Top 10 Players


Heading into the second season of competitive Halo Infinite, the legacy of competitive Halo carries on. With so many years of tournaments and prize pools, the best Halo players of all time have all earned their piece of the prize. Read on as we rank the top 10 all-time players.

Best Halo Players of All Time

There are a number of ways in which the best Halo players of all time, may be ranked. Some are objective, most are subjective interpretations. In this featured article, we’ll be using overall player earnings provided by Escharts to distinguish who the best Halo players really are.

Players who perform well at the high prize-pool events will rank highly on this list. We’ll also include the earnings of players in other similar titles, namely, Call of Duty.

Before we look at the list in more detail here’s an overview of the best Halo players:

 Player NameTotal Winnings

1. FormaL

(Active: OpTic Gaming)

Kicking things off, we have a dominant player who returned the scene in the inaugural season of Halo Infinite.

Accordingly, returning after leaving the scene for competitive Call of Duty, where he won multiple championships and a World Championship, FormaL is truly a legend. 

Moreover, in his first season back to competitive Halo, FormaL managed to steer OpTic Gaming to their Halo World Championship victory. Undoubtedly, he’s one of the best Halo players of all time.

Heading into 2023, OpTic Gaming are a team to watch when considering Halo betting.

2. Shotzzy

(Inactive: CDL)

Meanwhile, another former Halo professional who has experience in Call of Duty is Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro. Actively playing in the Call of Duty League, under OpTic Texas, this youngster has also managed to win a World Championship in both Halo and CoD!

Last appearing in Halo in 2018, while he may be inactive, there’s every chance that he may return one day to compete in Halo Infinite. Regardless, he sits as one of the top 2 best Halo players out in the world.

3. Frosty

(Active: FaZe Clan)

Seemingly a common theme here, Frosty is one player where an attempt at competing in Call of Duty simply did not yield much success.

Better focused on Halo, he teamed with the aforementioned “Shotzzy” on their Splyce tean to soar as Halo World Champions.

Apart from that, the veteran has secured multiple Halo tournament victories over his career which now almost spans a decade. Currently competing under FaZe Clan, he remains a top contender in the scene.

4. Huke

(Inactive: CDL)

Last competing in the title of Halo 5: Guardians, Cuyler “Huke” Garland is a prolific name alongside the new era of Halo players.

Leaving the scene, after multiple victories at a young age, the youngster is now competing in the Call of Duty League with OpTic Texas, remaining loyal to the organization after winning a CDL World Championship.

Just like “Shotzzy” there’s no certainty that this veteran won’t return to the scene.

5. SnakeBite

(Active: FaZe Clan)

Arriving at fifth place on our list of best Halo players of all time, Paul “SnakeBite” Duarte finds his place as an active player for FaZe Clan.

Having competed for the past 10 years, the competitor has amassed some fantastic placements, such as a victory at the Halo World Championship 2017 and 2016, followed by 2nd place at the Halo World Championship 2018.

Bearing this in mind, this player’s future looks incredibly bright.

6. LethuL

(Active: Sentinels)

Apart from Splyce, FaZe Clan and OpTic Gaming/Team Envy, Sentinels is another hugely respected Halo organization.

Currently competing for Sentinels, we have Tony “LethuL” Campbell on our list of best Halo Players of all-time. 

Last winning a World Championship in 2016, the veteran has remained consistent with wins in 2017, 2018 and most recently, the Kansas City Major in 2022. This new Sentinels roster could be deadly in 2023. 

7. Royal2

(Active: FaZe Clan)

Sitting on this list alongside some former teammates, Matthew “Royal2” Fiorante is an infamous player in the Halo esports scene.

While many may know him for his Halo World Championship victories in 2016 and 2017, the player was most recently banned from competitive play for a year in 2021. 

Returning to compete, he’s done so in a big way, helping Sentinels win a Major in 2022. Now in 2023, he’s part of a curious FaZe Clan roster.

8. Enable

(Inactive: Retired)

Retired from all competitive first-person shooters, Ian “Enable” Wyatt is a professional who has fought in both CoD and Halo. 

Despite a hand disability, the Halo veteran managed to win a number of events back in 2011 and 2012, at the very beginning of Halo. 

Since then, he would go on to win multiple events in Call of Duty and is now a content creator for 100 Thieves CDL. 

9. Snip3down

(Inactive: Retired)

Speaking of retirement, we have the likes of Eric “Snip3down” Wrona who retired much more recently, in 2022. Perhaps one of the most decorated veterans, the competitor has been around since 2008 and has scored several event wins.

Last playing for eUnited in 2019, he’s left behind an impressive reputation and many are wondering – will he be back in the future as one of the best halo players of all time?

10. Eco

(Active: Spacestation)

Last but not least, Kevin “Eco” Smith rounds off our list, with a tippable representation of Spacestation Gaming. 

Over his respectable career, he’s won multiple events, with a string of four victories in the Halo Championship Series between 2018 and 2021.

Last year, under Cloud9, the veteran mustered up an incredible performance, finishing 2nd at the Halo World Championship 2022. Now fighting for Spacestation Gaming, there’s a lot of fight left in this veteran for the future.

With this knowledge in hand, and another season of competitive Halo to look forward to, Halo betting is a fantastic prospect in the context of the esports betting industry. While Halo Infinite may be new for 2022, Halo has been around for a while and will likely continue to evolve with new iterations of Halo esports games in the coming years.
