Danish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive star Finn ‘Karrigan’ Andersen completely made up for his ‘embarrassing’ Desert Eagle miss by pulling out an incredibly clever 1v2 clutch.

Karrigan was left red in the face on May 18, when he failed to secure a seemingly easy kill against Valiance due to the game’s jumping accuracy reset. The clip, which showed how the Danish in-game leader completely whiffed, immediately went viral in the wake of Mousesports’ 16-6 defeat at DreamHack Open Tours.

Yet, there was salvation for the former FaZe Clan star as he made up for his error later in the day – completely bamboozling Bulgarian upstarts Windingo by using all of his CS:GO knowledge to pull off a devastating 1v2 clutch.

The former FaZe star joined Mouz back in March – guiding a line-up of young talent.

Karrigan gains redemption

Left in a dire 1v2 situation, with his health on the ropes, Karrigan opted against the easy plant at the B bombsite and rotated up all the way through heaven and stairs, bringing him out to the A site.

Despite being faced with two players, the Mousesports IGL had wasted enough time in the round that he had forced one player to rotate to the other site – giving him an easy one on one. With Windigo not expecting him to strike from behind, the Dane was able to sneak up behind one foe and stab them in the back, securing the extra money from the knife kill and a valuable weapon.

He waited out the second player, who didn’t have a defuse kit and was unable to try a sneaky defuse, by letting them pass before taking aim for a headshot. Karrigan didn’t miss and secured the twelfth round for his squad.  

Mousesports eventually pulled out the 2-0 series win, handing them a semi-finals berth against AVANGAR.

While Karrigan didn’t exactly light up the scoreboard against the Eastern European squad, he put his teammates in the right positions as they were, again, able to sweep the series with a comfortable 2-0 victory – putting them into the grand finals.

As expected, the newly-formed European squad – and Karrigan in particular – will get their shot at revenge against Valiance as they compete for the $50,000 grand prize. Some fans may expect that the Dane will be hoping to turn his whiff into a kill next time around but he’s probably a bit more focused on securing his first title back under the Mousesports banner.

GeT RiGhT: From CSGO God To Twitch Star

Don’t count out Counter-Strike legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund. Although he’s taking an extended break from his esports career, fans won’t have to wait long to see what his next chapter will bring.

For legacy CS fans, there’s no name that rings as loudly as GeT_RiGhT’s in almost every era of Valve’s shooter through the past two decades.

But the Swedish sensation is temporarily moving on from competitive play. This was a heartbreak for an industry that’s gotten used to seeing the star pop off at will throughout events, an experience that will have to wait for now.

Instead, the 30-year-old is excited to commit himself to the world of content creation and Twitch streaming to experience a “competition on another level for a person that loves competition,” GeT_RiGhT said.

“I love games,” he said. “At the end of the day I’m a gamer… CS is not the complete story of GeT_RiGhT.”

Although he has plenty of surprises in store for his fanbase, he made a note to say that this stage of his career will only mean he’ll be more active in games like Valorant, Call of Duty, and even maybe some League of Legends.

Still, GeT_RiGhT didn’t go so far as to rule out coming back to pro level play in the future, although he’s not holding out for a return soon.

For the time being, people can get excited to see a heavy presence from the Swede on Twitch, playing multiple titles as well as, of course, CS:GO.
