Joshua "steel" Nissan (born December 28, 1989) is a retired British-Canadian professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Counter-Strike: Source player. He is one of North America's most known in-game leaders.

steel started his professional Counter-Strike career in Source. Following the transition to Global Offensive, he most notably led iBUYPOWER and Torqued. In 2015, he was permanently banned from competition or involvement in Valve-associated events due to his involvement in the North American match fixing scandal. Before making his return to Counter-Strike in 2017, he previously played Overwatch competitively for Splyce. The second part of his Counter-Strike career was marked by teams such as Torqued, GX, Ghost Gaming and Chaos Esports Club. After having played professional Counter-Strike for nine years, he retired in August 2020 after being signed by 100 Thieves as part of their VALORANT squad.
