Twitch star Saqib 'LIRIK' Zahid left himself completely mind blown when he took on the mantel of the AWP in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and completely wrecked house.

Twitch is home to plenty of popular variety streamers but there may be no bigger or more popular than LIRIK. The American has been livestreaming since 2011, amassing over 2.5 million followers in that time.

He can be found playing anything and everything but most recently he’s been diving into Valve’s CS:GO. Like for anyone, the game has a learning curve and you’ll get wrecked by enemies until you finally put the hours. Yet, for Lirik, he was able to muster up all of his gaming powers and deliver a swift and impressive killstreak with both the AWP and the Desert Eagle.

The AWP is CS:GO's big damage dealer and is wielded by some of the best players.

During his January 6 broadcast, the popular streamer had been trying his hand at the popular shooter once again when, during his first match, he exploded with a professional-level highlight.

With the game coming to a close, LIRIK quickly eliminated a counter-terrorist foe with a wallbang headshot through the iconic mid-double doors. He added another quick kill when a further player tried to rush out of middle and into lower tunnels. 

From there, he took things up a notch. The streamer joined his team on Catwalk, saving one teammate with an insane no-scope headshot. While he was still in disbelief at that, LIRIK turned his attention to an enemy behind him – waiting to deliver a killer one-tap with his trusty sidearm.

Even though he was the one wielding the weapons, LIRIK couldn’t actually believe what he had just done. “Clip that sh*t!” he called out to his viewers. “Bro, holy sh*t man, what the f**k was that. I need to see that in slow-mo.”

It looks like all those hours in CS:GO have been paying off for the streamer and who knows what ridiculous highlight we’ll see from him next time.
