A new TD roster was present at MLG Dallas 2006, comprised of SK, CR "Detach" Thomas, "FoSSiK" and "Solshy". They took top 16 at their only event together. For the next event in Anaheim, SK and Detach recruited the duo of Alex "Toxin" Varouhas and Mason "ToxinsNeighbor" Cobb. They took a surprising 5th place at the event, and returned at the following event in Chicago. Unfortunately they took top 12 at this event, leading to a team change, with Detach being replaced by "BoO". They took top 12 again at MLG Orlando. Following Orlando, the team would pick up a sponsor from MoB and Gamergraffix.com and no longer attend events as Triggers Down.
Triggers Down would return at the start of Halo 3. This time SK would be accompanied by Justin "Fearitself" Kats and Jacob "Hysteria" Reiser, while going through a rotating cast of fourths. They started the year attending Meadowlands with Lowkin and finished 4th. Lowkin was swapped with Cameron "Victory X" Thorlackson for San Diego where the team finished 3rd. They then went on to win Orlando with Eric "Snip3down" Wrona, in place of Victory X, for the first ever victory for Triggers Down. Snip3down left before Toronto causing the team to use Mackeo in their 6th place finish there. They would replace Mackeo with Ben "Karma" Jackson for the final two events of the year, netting him his second tournament win inDallas, before finishing 5th at the National Championships in Vegas.
Triggers Down would maintain a stable roster for 5 events, now bringing in Richie "Heinz" Heinz and Justin "iGoturPistola" Deese, to play with Hysteria and SK. The team would finish 1st at Meadowlands, 2nd at Columbus and 1st at Dallas and Anaheim, bringing Triggers Down to 5 tournament wins in total. They finished the year with an unexpected and disappointing 5th place at the National Championship in Orlando.
Heinz left the team at the start of 2010 and was replaced with Neighbor for Orlando where the team finished 6th. Pistola was then switched with Anthony "Totz" Pennacchio for Columbus but the team only got 8th. The last three tournaments of the year would finally see Triggers Down solidify a roster. The departure of SK caused them to pick up Best Man for Raleigh, D.C. and Dallas finishing 3rd, 2nd and 4th respectively.
Reach would not bring the same level of success to Triggers Down, despite Hysteria being reunited with SK to reform some of the old core from its most successful period. MLG Dallas 2011 saw them joined by Best Man and Heinz for a 9th place finish. Heinz left before Columbus causing the team to pick up Loki, resulting in a 14th place finish. Hysteria and SK then recruited Brett Naded Leonard and Amish Acorns to try and improve things for Anaheim but they again only got 15th.
