G2 Esports star, Nemanja ‘huNter-’ Kovač, is now considered one of the best CS:GO players in the world, but just how did the entry-fragging Bosnian escape cousin NiKo’s shadow?

HuNter isn’t the first member of his family to prove his worth in Counter-Strike. Younger cousin, Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač, has long been considered one of the most mechanically gifted players to grace the game.

With that said, huNter has spent the majority of his CS:GO career in NiKo’s shadow. After a successful spell with long-time teammate, Nemanja ‘nexa’ Isaković, the pair were head-hunted by esports giant G2 Esports. And when G2 comes knocking, it’s hard to say no.

Since flying the G2 banner from September 2019, huNter led his team to a brief stint as the world’s best team, before settling back into a comfortable top-five rating. Wins have been in short supply, however, following the transition to online play, especially after narrowly missing out on DreamHack Masters success after a 3-2 loss to BIG in the Grand Final.

Nevertheless, after some impressive individual performances, the 24-year-old is now one of the most feared entry fraggers in the world. But just how did he go from zero to G2’s hero? Here’s huNter’s journey so far.

Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub is arguably Counter-Strike’s greatest AWPer of all-time and is considered one of the game’s most mechanically gifted players in history.

Kenny, has reached heights most aspiring pros could only dream of. But after leading his all-French lineup to their Major win, the sniping sensation has had his fair share of ups and downs.

After his roller-coaster time at Envy, Schrub moved to G2 Esports and this is where everything started falling into place. After taking some time restructuring the French AWPer now finds himself among a roster of players willing to support his unorthodox style of play.

One of the most impressive stats the veteran has is that he holds the record for the most AWP kills of all time with 18,371, with Guardian coming in second with 16,214, and ENCE star Allu is in third with 13,862.

A now rejuvenated Kenny is leading G2’s charge back to the top of CS:GO, but is the AWP GOAT past his sell-by date? Here’s what the stats say.
