Former CS:GO pro hilariously fails to demonstrate Dust 2 strategy

Seems like 2019 will still hold hilarious CS:GO misplays from Jacob ‘Pimp’ Winneche, as the streamer was the victim of an all too familiar brand of flubs that plague his channel.

Counter-Strike is a slow and meticulous game that rewards expert forethought and patient offense, but players are all too familiar with unexpected or chance occurrences that can easily foil a sound game plan.

Former CS:GO pro player Pimp wanted to give his stream a teaching moment of how to quickly take Catwalk on Dust 2, but things didn’t exactly go the way the streamer had hoped.

ValveDust 2 has been around longer than some players have been alive, but it hasn’t made the map any easier to maneuver at the pro level.

Pimp was at the tail end of a winning game on the Terrorist side and had a scoreline of 27 kills with 13 deaths, so the streamer got a little confident by attempting to take the express route to the A site by himself.

Pimp proceeded to run down the shady corridor aptly named Suicide, knowing the other team couldn’t afford AWPs.

He smoked Mid-Doors and ran down Top of Mid toward Catwalk while flashing the cross and bounced another flash off a window shutter to blind anyone peeking around Catwalk.

At this point, the Danish player felt confident after his flashes had gone off, but a slight miscalculation with his crosshair placement and blind luck from the opposing player thwarted Pimp’s push.

To his credit, Pimp correctly ascertained the enemy’s position and successfully obscured their vision. But the shots didn’t go the streamer’s way, giving him another entry in a long line of broken plays.

Former CSGO pro Elias ‘Jamppi’ Olkkonen has confirmed that he’s jumping ship from Counter-Strike to Valorant.


  • Jamppi was banned from playing in Counter-Strike Majors
  • The CSGO star was benched from ENCE
  • He sees it as a “fresh start” for him after Valve’s VAC ban

Jamppi makes Valorant switch

After a ban and ensuing lawsuit left Jamppi steeped in controversy, ENCE benched him from the starting lineup.

This has inspired the player to take a new pathway to glory. With no Majors in sight, he’s decided to join a wave of CS pros who have made the switch across to Valorant.

What’s next for Jamppi?

While it appears that the Finnish star hasn’t yet found an organization within the Valorant universe, it’s pretty clear that many a squad will jump at the chance to sign him.

Although he is still fighting an ongoing legal battle against the VAC ban that has stopped him from playing at several CSGO events, the 19-year-old prodigy has marked himself as a rising star in the FPS world.
