Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač annihilated his opponents in a Faceit Pro League match with an unbelievable 1v5 ace clutch.

NiKo is widely considered to be one of the best CS:GO players in the world and currently represents one of the biggest esports teams, FaZe Clan.

His team has fallen on bad form lately, but the Bosnian showed he can still be absolutely unstoppable with his incredible 1v5 in an FPL match.

ESL/Helena KristianssonNiKo plays a key part in FaZe Clan’s CS:GO squad.

FaZe were eliminated from the StarLadder Berlin Major on August 31 and NiKo was already back to his usual practice on September 4, when he made this amazing clutch. He was pushing out of A-ramp on Mirage and found his whole team had fallen, leaving him in a 1v5 situation.


He did not give up, however, and a quick spray towards palace secured him his first kill, setting the game to a slightly easier 1v4, but leaving him with only 12 health. From there, he knew his only shot was to kill everyone before they could even touch him.

A quick peek into the bomb-site revealed a Counter-Terrorist, who NiKo instantly deleted with a precise headshot. He then moved around the corner to look at jungle, hitting another insanely accurate one tap, and just two enemies remained.

Nikola retreated into ramp to check his flank and was able to amazingly hit yet another instant headshot, bringing it down to a 1v1 after killing three enemies without allowing them to react.


Things seemed incredibly easy for him after that, as he crept towards the bomb site and managed to get the jump on the final defender, securing the round and an insane 1v5 clutch.

NiKo wasn’t streaming this epic moment, but luckily Twitch streamer ShaneyTV managed to capture it, and he was just as stunned by the Bosnian’s skill as other fans, gasping and celebrating throughout.
