Throughout FaZe Clan’s tenure in Counter-Strike there have been many ups, downs, and roster changes but one thing has remained constant through all this: Håvard’ Rain’ Nygaard

Rain’s path to the top wasn’t always an obvious one. Norway doesn’t have the same history of CS:GO talent as other Scandinavian countries such as Sweden and Denmark. Where both of them have produced multiple elite teams over CS:GOs span as an esport, only a few top-tier players have come from Norway.

While Nygaard played with lots of other top prospects from his home country in the early stages of his career, it was clear he was being held back and if he wanted to reach his full potential in the future he would have to go international.

He got his chance to shine on Kinguin where he spent his early days clicking heads with Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom, and they were the first team to show the true potential of international line-ups. Ultimately, they would go on to become the FaZe CS:GO team.

A lot has changed since that first iteration of the roster, but Rain has been their constant through it all. This is the story of how Rain became FaZe Clan’s rock.

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.
