S1mple is a veteran CS:GO player that currently plays for Natus Vincere and is widely considered to be one of the best players in the world.
The Ukrainian is often found playing FPL pick-up games where he shows off his incredible skills and occasionally likes to have a bit of fun.
August 18 was one of the days where s1mple decided to take his match less seriously and pull off a hilarious play.
Na`Vi’s star player was hiding on the A-bomb site of Overpass as he spotted an enemy through a tiny gap and began to relay information to his team, who were already amused by his sneaky position.
He could have easily taken the shot and secured a kill, but he decided to make the round more interesting by attempting something very unexpected.
S1mple pulled out his knife and ran at his opponent, leaping over a truck and landing on his head, before finishing him off with the knife in the blink of an eye.
The Ukrainian’s teammates erupted with laughter as he somehow managed to close the gap and secure an extremely unlikely kill, transforming from an FPS player to some kind of ninja assassin.
Although his team ended up losing the round, s1mple didn’t seem too bothered, joyfully saying “man that’s worth it” and following with more laughter.
The next time we see the Ukrainian may be in a more serious setting, as the StarLadder Berlin Major is just around the corner, starting on August 23, and even one silly play like this is a big risk to take, one that s1mple is likely to avoid as he has already been punished for something like this, when a knife attempt ended up allowing Team Liquid to make a comeback at ESL One Cologne.
