Mixer star Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek has been known as the “human aimbot” for a long time, and former Cloud9 teammate Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert explained the key contributing factor for the title.

Even in his Counter-Strike pro days, shroud was known for his quick flicks and godly aim. Meanwhile on his CS:GO streams, there was hardly a day when “the King of Reddit” didn’t make an appearance on the GlobalOffensive subreddit.

While shroud has piled up viral clips to add to his highlight reel, many have been in awe for the streamer’s consistent aim. Luckily, n0thing detailed exactly what to adjust in your mouse mechanics to start aiming like shroud, but probably not as good.

It’s all about mastering the basics

In explaining the optimal way of aiming with a mouse in an FPS, n0thing noted shroud’s refined arm movements which has given him the notoriety he’s garnered.

“That’s why we call shroud one of the best aimers of all time,” n0thing said. “Because his movements with his arm are so accurate that not many people have that level of accuracy.”

Mobile viewers can see the clip here.

N0thing was explaining the importance of using one’s arm to aim, instead of relying on wrist movements. By doing so, you move the reticule to your target’s location, while using the mouse for a more precise shot.

“Wrist and the hand is always going to be the most accurate mechanism because it’s smaller, it’s more precise,” n0thing said. “Arm is used to keep your wrist centered. Anytime you’re aiming forward, you want to keep your arm centered on your mousepad.”

DreamhackSince his pro days, shroud has impressed with his aim.

This is even more important when “flicking” to a target, where players rely on a precise reaction to nail a quick shot.

    While the streamer is on a level of his own, at least players now have an idea of what it takes to aim at that level.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
