BIG Clan player Tizian “tiziaN” Feldbusch pulled off such a ridiculous pistol kill at the FACEIT London Major, the casters couldn’t actually believe it had happened.

In the main qualifying stage of the London Major, BIG Clan were facing Australian team Renegades in their opening match, and tiziaN started it off with a bang.

In the opening round of the match, played on Overpass, all players started with the basic pistol set up, and tiziaN and co. were all equipped with the silenced USP, used on the CT side.

tiziaN immediately got to the spot behind barrel’s at the B site, and proceeded to duck up and down while dispatching of opponents with lightning quick speed.

Casting duo James “JZFB” Bardolph and Daniel “DDK” Kapadia didn’t even immediately notice that tiziaN had in fact got a kill in the engagement, as his flick shot was so insanely fast but masterfully accurate.

In an interview with HLTV following the match, tiziaN explained that he had in fact practiced the shot, so it wasn’t just blind luck.

“I have actually practiced it, I don’t know, three or four times, but I wasn’t planning on doing that shot, you know. But I guess that it’s easier for me to land the hard shots.”

A replay shows the kill in slow motion, but even then it still looks fast – and the casters are still in disbelief.

It was a very strong start for the team that surprised at ESL One Cologne, where they made it to the grand final in front of a passionate home crowd, although they were ultimately defeated by Na’Vi.

They took the match against Renegades 16-6, and although Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz and Fatih “gob b” Dayik were the standout players for BIG, tiziaN’s kill was undoubtedly the highlight play of not only the match, but the entire Major so far.

They will need to find themselves amongst the top eight teams in the New Challengers Stage, which will secure them a spot in the New Legends Stage, starting on September 12.

Four of the former 100 Thieves roster, their coach Kassad, and former Gen.G player BnTeT have joined Extremum.


  • Ex-100T core join Extremum
  • BnTeT joins from Gen.G
  • Kassad joins from Cloud9’s Colossus

100 Thieves exited CS:GO in late 2020, as much of the North American scene petered out, and LAN events were canceled.

This left their talented roster, still full of potential, without an org. Justin ‘jks’ Savage joined compLexity, but the future for the rest of the ANZ lineup was unclear.

On January 24, Extremum revealed their new lineup, which also included Indonesian player Hansel ‘BnTeT’ Ferdinand, formerly of Gen.G and TyLoo, long regarded as one of the best Asian players.

Where will they play?

Kassad also rejoins his old teammates as coach. He had coached the core of this roster on both Renegades and 100 Thieves, before leaving for a stint with Cloud9.

Extremum will now work towards qualifying for the PGL Stockholm major, as well as competing in tournaments in Europe. HLTV reports they will travel to North America to compete in specific RMR (Regional Major Ranking) tournaments to earn their Major spot.

EXTREMUM CS:GO roster

  • Aaron ‘AZR⁠’ Ward

  • Jay ‘Liazz⁠’ Tregillgas
  • Joakim ‘⁠jkaem⁠’ Myrbostad
