Former professional Counter-Strike player turned top PUBG streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has always been known for his flashy plays, and this ridiculous clip is the perfect example.
After officially announcing retirement earlier this year and departing Cloud9, the organization where he spent almost all of his playing career, Shroud has been ramping up his streaming output.
He is often found playing popular battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), and regularly attracts over 20,000 concurrent viewers at any time.
But what makes Shroud so entertaining is not just his professional level of skill in game, but also his blasé attitude towards the opponents who simply cannot match him.
For example this incredible clip, the epitome of Shroud’s abilities, as he is forced to put stop mid-mouthful when an enemy starts taking shots.
Ever calm under pressure, Shroud puts his fork down and with one impeccable shot puts an end to the disruption. If you are a fan of professional CS:GO player Tarik “Tarik” Celik, this kind of clip might remind you of something.
The clip is of course reminiscent of Shroud’s former Cloud9 teammate Tarik, whose four kills on Counter-Strike while eating a bowl of cereal has become notorious online.
Despite no longer playing professional Counter-Strike, Shroud has no doubt done his former teammate proud with this homage moment.
