Who is KatGunn?

KatGunn (or Mystik, she goes by both) is a well-known Esports player that started out her professional Esports career with Halo: Reach. But this wasn’t her first major game. She participated in a piece of Xbox history, being one of the first original beta testers for the service (shortly after Microsoft announced it). MechAssault was a game that she played and loved, still being one of her favorites. She was exceptionally good at Crimson Skies: High Road to Revenge and would proceed to reach the top of the leaderboards.

Oh, she also had an interest in trading card games (mainly Pokemon and Magic: The Gathering)!

KatGunn’s Rich Career

KatGunn has had an unusually rich and long gaming career, especially considering how versatile she is. Most prominent Esports gamers (including Esports girl gamers) focus on one game or one genre, but not Gunn. She’s played Dead or Alive, Hearthstone, H1Z1, Halo, and something called Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.

In 2006, she took part in the World Cyber Games National Finals. Her Dead or Alive career would grow even more with KatGunn attending the Championship Gaming Series Region 1 Combine in 2007. A short time after that, she was the 18th draft (drafted in the third round) in the 2007 Championship Gaming Series Draft. The team that picked her up was Carolina Core. The signing was a resounding success as KatGunn took her new team to the World Finals, but unfortunately lost to Chicago Chimera. Nevertheless, this was one of the most important milestones in her career.

2010 marked Gunn’s second and last season on the WCG Ultimate Gamer reality show. Even though she faced relentless opposition, Mystik ended up winning the season and a hefty prize of $100,000! Two years later, in 2012, she commentated on the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo.
