Summit1g uses his CSGO skills to win intense 1v3 clutch in VR

Star Twitch streamer and former CS:GO pro player Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar turned back the clock with an incredible 1v3 clutch in the virtual reality first-person-shooter Pavlov VR.

When it comes to first-person-shooters, CSGO is the cream of the crop when it comes to worldwide popularity, despite the game not having changed too much over its many years of existence.

However, that hasn’t stopped fans from modernizing it themselves, such as remaking the iconic Cache map in a virtual reality game called Pavlov VR, which itself is also an FPS.

Naturally, summit1g, who competed in and streamed CSGO for several years, had to try out this VR version of Cache for himself, which he did in one of his recent streams.

Proving that his FPS skills haven’t deteriorated yet, he wowed his viewers with an expertly-executed 1v3 clutch to win a crucial round.

The only one alive on his team up against three enemy players with the bomb planted, summit found himself in a situation that would take a miracle to come out of victorious.

He put his hand-eye coordination to good use by gunning down two of the players before rushing over to the bomb site to attempt the defuse.

He was able to complete the sequence with just five seconds left and a tick before the final enemy got to the site, completing the incredible clutch.

What made the whole thing even more fun to watch was the fact that summit had to actually move his hand around in the air and manually input the defuse code, which was hilarious sight in real life.

Pavlov VRCSGO fans have remade the iconic Cache as a playable map in Pavlov VR.

Released in February of 2017, Pavlov VR is still in early-access mode, as developers Vankrupt Games continue to make improvements to it as virtual reality technology continues to advance.

The game is currently available for purchase on Steam and is compatible with several VR devices, including Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality.

Swedish esports organization GODSENT have confirmed their new Counter-Strike roster, featuring Epitácio ‘TACO’ de Melo – with a job listing for someone to edit their reveal video. 

Roster and player announcements have become big business in esports, especially at the highest level.  A lot of time and effort goes into getting everything right – sometimes even weeks before the actual announcements are made.

Organizations will, at times, drop hints about what moves they’re making, especially if an insider – or even a player – manages to accidentally reveal things ahead of time.

However, this time, it wasn’t an insider or new player who dropped the ball on an announcement, but rather the organization themselves.

TACO had been rumored to be leading the new GODDSENT team.

The Swedish organization, which has typically had European Counter-Strike rosters, uploaded the files for their roster announcement to a job listing. They were asking for someone to edit the videos, removing the green screen behind their new players.

Front and center of the video is former SK Gaming and MiBR star TACO, who had been rumored to be leading the new GODSENT project. He’s flanked by former teammate João ‘felps’ Vasconcellos, Bruno ‘latto’ Rebelatto, Eduardo ‘dumau’ Wolkmer, and Bruno ‘b4rtiN’ Câmara.

Twitter user NoOne_CSGO spotted the video totally revealing the whole roster on January 16, which went under the radar before RushBMedia’s Ryan Friend boosted it.

After the hilarious ‘leak’ made the rounds on Twitter, the listing was removed from the Upwork website, and the videos were taken down.

However, GODSENT and Taco decided to have a little fun with things. “FAKE NEWS,” they tweeted, while Taco claimed “it’s not me,” in the videos.

Before it was removed, the listing asked for the work to be completed by 6PM on Monday, January 18, pointing at an announcement coming soon.

Seeing as they’ve now taken it down, and quite a decent number of CS:GO fans have seen the videos, GODSENT might move that forward and announce their new line-up sooner.

It’s either a spectacular blunder that will be talked about while the lineup is together, or a superb piece of hype-building.
