Tshaka "Arsenal" Lateef Taylor Jr is an established force on Spacestation Gaming, only two years after he took the NA pro scene by storm. Arsenal went from grinding 6Mans to finding himself qualifying for the Rival Series with The Peeps.

On this episode on the Salt Cast, Arsenal discusses the communication on SSG, the flow state, and the upcoming SMUG 4 matches. Enjoy!
