Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has once again shown that he is a god of gaming with an impressive 1 vs. 5 clutch on Rainbow Six: Siege.
Shroud enjoyed a fairly successful career as a professional CS:GO player which saw him secure some top finishes at international events, including a first place at the ESL Pro League Season 4 finals.
The Canadian star was well known for his incredible mechanical abilities but he sometimes received criticism for being “less dedicated” than other professional players and splitting his time between practicing and streaming.
Eventually he made the decision to switch to a career as a full time Twitch streamer and is currently one of the most followed entertainers on the entire platform.
The switch in focus has also allowed him to showcase just how talented he is at just about any game that he turns his attention towards, including PUBG, Fortnite Battle Royale, Realm Royale, and even Rainbow Six: Siege.
During one such game of Rainbow Six, the former CS:GO pro found himself in a 1 vs. 5. Shroud never looked like he felt any doubt as he comfortably picked up the clutch with the help of a strange team kill from the opponents.
While he wasn’t a professional in Rainbow Six, shroud’s experience and years of training in CS:GO are sure to help him in these situations against casual players like this.
Shroud’s ability to pick up just about any game and be good at it in no time at all can be infuriating to watch at times, but there’s no denying the fact that it’s impressive.
We think shroud is missing out on a niche “shroud vs.” series on YouTube where he tries a new game once a week and finds out how many matches it takes for him to pick up his first win.
