6S Gaming was founded in November 2016 by "Kevo", "Lumy" and "Motiv Fury". They announced their Halo team on November 10 with the acquisition of the Contagious roster - Joe "TriPPPeY" Taylor, Tyler "TireIron" Mara, Tom "Saiyan" Wilson and Jorge "BoamX" Campos with coach Josh "Mash" Mashlan. They attended HCS Las Vegas 2016 with the intent of qualifying for the Pro League Relegation event, needing a top 2 finish in the amateur bracket to do so. Losing only one match in the bracket (to 3sUP), 6S lived up to their name as they successfully qualified for Relegation. In the Pro Bracket, they were eliminated by a team also at Relegation - Enigma6 Group - for a top 12 finish.
