PewDiePie playing Counter-Strike in VR is as hilarious as you’d expect

Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is well known for making hilarious videos on his YouTube channel, so it’s no surprise that his trip into the world of Virtual Reality warfare was extremely funny.

The Swede brought out his VR headset to play Pavlov VR, a first-person-shooter which features popular Counter-Strike maps alongside the game’s well-known purchasing system.

Kjellberg was feeling confident as he hopped into his first game, declaring:”Let’s kill some noobs,” as he stared at the ground. Unfortunately, PewDiePie ran into a problem straight away, realizing that he couldn’t figure out the controls, and didn’t know how to buy a weapon.

PewDiePie was able to solve this problem easily, spotting a computer controlled player beside him and quickly stabbing him with his knife, killing him and taking his weapon.

Still unable to change his weapon, Kjellberg took advantage of a frustrated teammate’s decision to teamkill, allowing him to throw away his current weapon and pick up an AK-47, which he then sprayed wildly at a group of enemies, taking credit for the kills that his teammates picked up.

PewDiePie was playing Pavlov VR – a game based on Counter-Strike.

PewDiePie’s adventure in Pavlov ended with the YouTube sensation furiously chasing an enemy player who attempted to throw a knife at him. Demanding an apology, the Swede chased his opponent through tunnels and over crates until he finally got revenge, throwing his own knife and stabbing him in the back.

While PewDiePie’s aim may not have been amazing while using guns, he did seem to have a great time playing the game, and even ran into a fan, who was brutally shot in the head while expressing his gratitude to Kjellberg for the content he produces.

Janko ‘YNk’ Paunović has stepped down as the head coach of FaZe Clan’s CSGO team following the transfer of Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač to G2 Esports.

YNk cited issues within the team and wanted to step aside as FaZe will be looking to build up their lineup again, which still features highly-talented players even with the exit of their Bosnian star.

“For a while now the team has been struggling with some recurring issues in and out of the game which I’ve done my best to try and amend but unfortunately without much success,” YNk said. “I feel that the best way to move forward is for the team and myself to part ways and, with NiKo going to G2, give the players and the organization the opportunity to get a new coach and IGL who can work on taking the team forward.”

The former MiBR and FaZe coach also indicated that he’s going to break from coaching CSGO for the rest of 2020, and left the next year open-ended.

YNk has stepped down from FaZe after joining in early 2019.

A player and broadcaster before his coaching career, YNk leaves the org in the same month his team beat OG Esports 3-0 in the EU Intel Extreme Masters New York Online grand finals. Last week, they placed 9th at the DreamHack Open Fall 2020.

YNk has been with the team since the beginning of 2019. While they managed to put good results together at various BLAST events and some online tourneys in 2020, FaZe struggled to put up consistent performances against top teams.

YNk is stepping aside in a pivotal moment for FaZe Clan’s roster. Longtime face of the org’s CSGO team, Niko, has moved on from FaZe, and the coach will stand down to let them make something out of the stars still on roster like Marcelo ‘coldzera’ David, Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard, Markus ‘Kjaerbye’ Kjærbye, and rising talent Helvijs ‘broky’ Saukants.

YNk and NiKo both parted ways with FaZe Clan.

As more CSGO events and competitors continue to either migrate or revolve around EU, YNk could still have prospects in the competitive or broadcasting sides of the scene.

Once a team with superstar players in every role, FaZe is now on the market to fill up their roster to standard capacity, as the latest shakeups leave them without a fifth member and a head coach to take the reigns.
