A recently discovered easter egg in CSGO shows that some sneaky developers at Valve Corporation are huge fans of the popular psychological drama series, Mr. Robot.

Having been on the air since June of 2015, it was recently announced that the subversive Mr. Robot would be coming to an end with a fourth and final season. 

With just a few episodes remaining until we reach the conclusion of Elliot Alderson’s mind-bending journey, CSGO fans have picked up on an unexpected Mr. Robot Easter Egg in-game.

Wandering through Breach after a major November 4 update which saw certain sections of the map drastically altered, players are now able to stumble upon a newly placed Easter Egg on one of the monitors in-game.

At first glance, one of the monitors is simply just displaying an assortment of insignificant code. Upon an extremely close look however, players discovered that the code is actually a neat throwback to specific coding from the very first episode of Mr. Robot.

The exact code features lines such as ‘fsociety’ and ‘LEAVE ME HERE,’ both of which are present in the pilot episode of the popular show.

Eliot stumbles upon fsociety early into the narrative and decides to align his efforts with the secretive hacker group in order to destabilize the status quo. The band of misfits is labeled after their hideout on an abandoned Coney Island as well as their obvious message to societal norms.

Not the only creative easter egg on the map, CSGO fans have also been treated to an intricate and amusing feature that requires four players to stand directly under certain lights on Breach.

Doing so hilariously unlocks a brief first-person cutscene that sends your character down the spiraling slide. 

No stranger to Easter Eggs of late, the recently updated Cache also featured a number of hidden goodies for dedicated players to track down.

With numerous changes to Breach in the latest update, there might still be some surprises left to discover but for the time being, here’s everything you may have missed in the new patch.

Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom has a lot to live up to. His brother, Adil ‘ScreaM’ Benrlitom, was a CS:GO legend… But his blockbuster debut with Team Vitality at BLAST Premier Fall, alongside his IEM Beijing win, has catapulted the Belgian super-sub into the spotlight. 
In an interview with Dexerto following his Beijing triumph, Nivera told us that the hard work starts here if he’s going to leave a legacy like his brother. He also told us more about his role in his new team and looked back at his early performances with Vitality.

Brought in as the sixth member of an already established Team Vitality roster, Nivera is surrounded by some of the biggest names in French Counter-Strike.

But aside from having to live up to the high standards set by his teammates, the 19-year-old has to handle the pressures of living up to his brother’s reputation.

ScreaM rubbed shoulders with CS:GO’s elite, but has since moved onto Valorant in pursuit of Major glory.

Nivera: Stepping away from ScreaM’s shadow

Despite never earning a podium finish at a CS:GO Major, ScreaM’s name is firmly cemented in Counter-Strike’s hall of fame. While Nivera certainly has big shoes to fill, the Vitality hotshot believes that he can certainly follow in his brother’s footsteps. “It’s my dream to replicate his career, you know? I’ll give it my best and I’m pretty sure I’ll have no regrets.”

But with that said, Nivera remained candidly humble when pressed on what it will take to surpass his brother’s legacy. “Even if I win a Major, it will not be enough… My brother did a lot of things in this game and I have to work really hard.”

 

Nivera on becoming Vitality’s super sub

Nivera finished IEM Beijing as the third highest rated player of the event — falling short to fellow teammate, Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut and Na’Vi’s Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev.

As Vitality’s sixth man, he has become their resident Inferno & Dust 2 specialist… Even pushing ZywOo aside when it comes to AWP duties. “If I want to take the AWP, I take it… I’m the main sniper!”

Nivera was Vitality’s highest rated player in the series (albeit only playing two maps), after posting a 87.1 Average Damage per Round and a 45-31 kill-to-death ratio.

So was the youngster the key ZywOo and co. finally overcoming their Grand Final jitters? Well, the pressure certainly didn’t affect him. “I didn’t feel a lot of pressure, honestly… I just give everything, I stay focused on the game — I just give my best and give everything for the team.”

IEM Beijing was Team Vitality’s fifth Grand Final appearance in as many months, but the first for their super sub. And as fate would have it, the French squad finally overcame their second-place curse and secure their first event win of the year.

Was Nivera the difference maker? Well he certainly adds a fresh dynamic to the roster in a best-of-five series. Team Coach, Rémy ‘XTQZZZ’ Quoniam, can utilize their latest signing to make it more difficult for prying eyes to strategize against them. But one thing’s for certain, only time will tell if Nivera can carry the Benrlitom torch in CS:GO.
