While some players of online games use an aimbot to cheat their way to victory, streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has proven that his aim is just as good without one.
The former CS:GO pro put his impressive skill on display during a match in Call of Duty’s new Blackout battle royale mode, which released as part of the Black Ops 4 title on October 12.
While in the loading area waiting for his match to begin, Shroud picked up an SMG weapon and began shooting it in a manner that would make it look like he was using aim hacks.
He was flicking his weapon left and right, never really aiming at any enemy players, and yet nearly every time he fired a shot, there was a hit-marker indicated that he had his someone.
Anyone watching who understands at least a little about aim-botting would suspect its use immediately, which would explain why some members of his chat were going ballistic at what they were seeing on screen.
The shots that Shroud was hitting were mesmerizing; it’s hard to imagine someone being so good at first person shooters that they can make it seem as if they’re hacking when they’re not.
Skill like this is what has made Shroud a household name in the online gaming community. After retiring from a successful career in CS:GO, Shroud has found a niche in the battle royale genre, and has become a huge fan of Blackout since getting to try it during its beta testing week in September.
Now that the game is fully out, expect social media and Twitch to be littered with clips of him doing unprecedented things in the newest and hottest battle royale game.
