Over the past couple of weeks, Battalion 1944 has become the talk of the town in the online gaming community, with many top streamers binge-playing the game since its release.
Shroud, in particular, has developed quite a fondness for the new first-person-shooter, and, much to the surprise of no one, is already considered to be one of the best players in the game.
His latest exploit came during a match in which his team was trailing seven rounds to 10, with both teams racing to be the first to win 13 rounds to clinch the match victory.
It was during this 18th round in which he put his full arsenal of skills on display, piling up four eliminations and nearly pulling off what would have been a very tasty clutch.[ad name=”article3″]
The round started with shroud running both the STG rifle and a shotgun, giving him the ability to confidently take on enemies both at close and far range.
His sequence of kills began with a shotgun pump to the head of an enemy crouch-walking through the smoke, after which he hit some impressively accurate shots to beam an opponent that was sitting on A-bomb.
However, the gem of the clip came after that, when the former CS:GO pro was stuck in a 1v3 situation. Knowing he had to play aggressively because the enemy team had planted the bomb, he pushed out and used elite movement and incredible accuracy to delete one player while rapidly recovering to shotgun another out of the air.
Unfortunately, he was unable to kill the final player, who was guarding the bomb, although shroud immediately remarked that the final opponent “teleported in front of him.”
What shroud thinks of Battalion 1944
Considering his legendary status among numerous FPS games, it’s not surprising that shroud has fallen in love with Battalion 1944, claiming that it’s the “best FPS out right now.”
He’s called the game a combination of Call of Duty and CS:GO, in that it fuses the fundamental mechanics of CoD with the popular economy and round system of competitive CS:GO matches.
Seeing as how he’s currently one of the best players in the world, and that there isn’t really any other game out there that he’s fond of as much, fans can expect the star streamer to continue playing Battalion 1944 for the foreseeable future.
