CSGO player has their lucky stars align to hit a one-bullet ace

Every AWP player dreams of hitting a collateral in CS:GO. However, what if you landed an ace with just a single bullet? Well, imagine no more, as one player has managed to do the seemingly impossible and get a collateral ace.

Nothing is better than getting two birds with one stone as an AWPer. We’ve all seen the clips ⁠— from the “jumping cold” to whatever s1mple is doing nowadays ⁠— but never failed to get the right line-up.

The AWP isn’t just limited to two kills with one bullet though. With the right setup, you can land an ace ⁠— if you nail a few headshots in a line. While you’re more likely to win the lottery than land it, one player has managed to do it.

The clip, which shot to the top of the CS:GO subreddit, couldn’t have come at a more clutch time for the CT side either.

Up 13-12 on Inferno, the terrorists ran up Banana to launch a fast assault on the B site. However, one AWP, and a couple of grenades, stood in their way.

With a double grenade stack, the attackers were chunked out heavily. However, even then, the ace wasn’t secured. Instead, with the wide swing, the AWPer managed to lay down the law on all five at the same time, nailing three headshots and four collaterals to get the one-bullet ace.

While the AWPer was assisted by a good grenade stack from his teammate, the amount of luck you’d have to cash in to get all five enemies at the same time is incredible.

First, the terrorists executed a B rush, lining them up perfectly for their grenade stack. Not only that, they conga lined all the way up Banana, making the perfect wide swing possible. Then, all they had to do was not whiff the shot.

The reaction was just as you’d expect ⁠— a lot of confused players wondering what the hell just happened. It’s probably the first time everyone in that lobby had seen such a play, and they’ll probably never see it again outside of the replay.

You’ll probably never see a kill feed like this ever again.

While it might not be a true one-bullet ace to some purists, who could argue that the AWPer was assisted, the fact that it happened is remarkable. There’s no discounting how lucky this play is from start to finish.

If you are preparing to launch an attack down Banana though, be prepared. A few copycats might be trying to mimic this AWPer’s success, and there’ll be nade stacks for days.

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
