Top 3 Iconic CSGO plays that surprised us all

CSGO’s pro scene is undoubtedly and undeniably one of the biggest and best Esport in the world.

The professional players constantly surprise us left and right and center with amazing plays, questionable actions, and, most importantly, iconic moments that we will never forget. 

Today, we will be reflecting on the top three iconic moments in CSGO history that no one saw coming.

1. s1mple’s double AWP no-scope against Fnatic

The day Oleksandr Kostyliev became s1mple

In his days with team liquid, the young star managed to pull off this ridiculous 1v2 clutch against Fnatic. 

Gaining his infamous “falling AWP” graffiti implemented into the map “cache” by developers to mark this impossible play. 

To end it all beautifully, s1mple went on to get the same falling AWP graffiti as a tattoo. 

2. HenryG throws his PC PGL Krakow Major, 2017

This is undisputedly one of the most outrageous moments in the history of CSGO, even if technically not a pro moment.

HenryG clearly destroyed an entire gaming PC worth thousands because of technical issues. 

Call him immature or cringe, but this made gaming history, and it’s incredible.

3. Stewie2k 2018 Boston Major B solo hold, leading to overtime to a major win

You guys most likely knew this was coming; watching it to this day, I still get goosebumps.

The sheer triumph we witnessed from Cloud9 alone to go from 10-15 to 15-15 was preposterous, let alone catching young stew pull this off. 

Despite Stewie2k’s recent lack of success within the game, it is essential not to forget the history and story of Jake.

He helped pave the way for future players and definitely acted as a primary figurehead in the CSGO community.

It’s such a shame the star might be moving to VALORANT…
