Team Redbull’s Halo Team Cross-Train at Fort Riley Military Post
On February 14 and 15, Red Bull eSports athletes Ian “Enable” Wyatt and Mike “Flamesword” Chaves traveled to the US Army Post in Fort Riley, Kansas, to train with the US Army’s top Halo team.
Both squads were able to boost various aspects of their gameplay over the course of their visit. Ian and Mike got to experience combat simulations to apply to their Halo gameplay, and the Army team received performance training and nutritional info from Lesli Shooter of the Red Bull High Performance team, and engaged in a few scrimmage matches against Ian and Mike’s squad.
The weekend wrapped up with a best-of-seven Halo 4 tournament in Fort Riley’s Warrior Zone, a first-of-its-kind electronics entertainment center on base.
