On March 11, shroud was involved in an incident where he flew off of his scooter and crashed into the asphalt. The popular streamer sustained several injuries to his left side, which included a series of broken bones in his left arm.

Subsequently, Grzesiek underwent surgery on March 13 to realign the broken bones, and ever since, the Canadian has had to fulfill a series of rehab procedures to manage the injury.

Shroud’s injury update

Revealing details surrounding his progress since the incident, Grzesiek was asked on his current mobility in his left arm: “It’s not very good, but I’m getting this super intense brace-splint-thing.”

Shroud continued by detailing the rehab strategy that is in place, where he revealed that he’ll be wearing a brace alongside conduct a series of physical therapy sessions to restore the range of motion back to a similar standard that his dominant arm currently has.

Will shroud need more surgery?

After laying all his cards on the table, the ex-Counter-Strike pro unveiled that he might indeed need more surgery: “I might need another surgery, maybe, but it’s still going to take some time.”


However, the surgery will only be required if the mobility cannot be regained and then independently retained:

“Well basically, if I actually truly can’t get my mobility back through physical therapy and all different exercises, then he has one more thing that he does as his last treatment and it will 100% give me my range of motion back.”

Luckily, the arm in question is not what is predominantly responsible for his human aimbot skillset, with the streamer purposely landing on his left side to save any form of ailment coming to his money-maker. 

Should shroud require more surgery, he could come back with a Terminator–esque left arm, given that the surgery might involve planting titanium rods to aid with mobility and stability.
