GuardiaN nails wallbang of the century

We have all tried to hit some kind of ludicrous wall bang with the AWP, and it never comes off. Maybe once you tag someone and a teammate finishes them off, or if you are lucky someone walks in the perfect place just on the other side of the wall, but never have we hit a shot like this.

In his match against Fnatic in the ESL Pro League, NaVi AWPer GuardiaN decided to take a chance when playing on Train and boy did it work out. With Fnatic playing with just pistols and limited armour he took a shot that most pros wouldn’t even attempt, and somehow lined it up perfectly with Olofmeister’s head. A moment later and Olof is dead, wondering what the hell just happened, and the casters are going crazy.

A shot like this is just a thing of beauty. Obviously the players can’t see the outlines of their opponents like we can, so this was a totally blind shot. Half a pixel in any direction and this shot doesn’t land, and oh my god we just can’t believe it actually happened.

NaVi went on to win the map 16-7, although lost the next one 16-12. They currently sit in sixth place in the EU league.
