Baunfire began his competitive career by playing on Hammers Kinetic with Huskies and FearPoseidon in November of 2015.
In what became known in the community as a "cinderella story," Hammers Kinetic upset matchup favorites, Liberation Y in the round of 32, as well as taking down VON Menace in the quarterfinals, eventually finishing fourth overall. In Winter VGL Qualifier 2, Kinetic made it to the round of 8 where they lost to first seeded Gankstars Sirius, but still qualified for the Winter Live Championships. Baun was unable to attend the Winter Live Championships due to personal reasons, but the team still finished 5th.
Baunfire retired from competitive play after the Winter season when ttigers and gabevizzle joined Hammers Kinetic.
