Popular League of Legends professional Zach ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi revealed his new, stunning cosplay of Nier:Automata character 2B in what is yet another mind-blowing look from him. 

Nier: Automata, a hack and slash action game which is a follow-up to the original Nier title, released back in 2017 to much acclaim from critics and fans across the globe. 

In the game, players are tasked with completing three difficult chapters – each coming with their own character. The first of which is YoRHa No. 2 Type B, or 2B for short, a battle-android that has battled through wars and is well known for the close-quarters combat abilities – while also having a ranged attack in the form of the ‘Pod Shot’.

Sneaky has partnered his League of Legends success with incredible cosplays too.

While the character is a machine at the end of the day, it’s unique look means that it is pretty primed for cosplayers – so, that’s where Sneaky comes in.

The former Cloud9 pro, who has wowed fans with his ability to pull-off stunning cosplays of members of the opposite sex in the past, pulled off the cosplay with some incredible accuracy.

Just like 2B has in Nier:Automata’s Route A chapter, Sneaky suited up in a flowing black dress that has a tonne of details towards the very bottom, and a cut-out slot just near the chest area. With 2B also having a military visor covering her eyes, no cosplay would be complete with pulling that out – something which Sneaky, of course, managed to do.

As usual, Sneaky took the look to the next level by completing it by carrying a brutal-looking sword and making it a focal point of his shoot.

With Nier: Automata having plenty of other characters, there’s some more scope for the former Cloud9 player to explore the game’s world and pick out another cosplay. If he does, though, remains to be seen as he could pull off pretty much any look he puts his mind to.
