New Cloud9 player TenZ demonstrates skill in record aim challenge
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro and new Cloud9 addition Tyson “TenZ” Ngo shattered the world record for an aim challenge in the game. He set the mark at 28.16 seconds during a recent stream after over 20 minutes of trying.
It’s a difficult feat for any CSGO player. The aim challenge tasks you with locating and shooting groups of stationary targets in a series of rooms. Viewers cheered him on as he effortlessly snapped his crosshair from target to target in near-perfect fashion.
The feat begins at around the :20 mark of this clip.
While you get nothing epic for topping the leaderboards, owning the top spot for the aim challenge is no doubt an impressive feat for TenZ.
With a record like this under his belt, the 18-year-old pro further shows himself as a sharpshooting threat and gives his name added credibility. The publicity he’ll get from the achievement could also help take his streaming efforts to new heights.
It’s too early to crown TenZ the almighty emperor of all things CSGO, however. There’s a big difference between a scripted challenge map with lifeless targets and the pressure that comes with competing against similarly skilled and equipped opponents in a live environment.
The young player is a relative newcomer to the competitive scene.
He got his start playing in an online amateur challenge tournaments for fringe teams before Cloud9 picked him up in July as part of a 2019 roster shakeup. The organization brought him in along with Damian “daps” Steele, Oscar “mixwell” Cañellas, and Kenneth “koosta” Suen. Timothy “autimatic” Ta is the only remaining member from the team’s past major championship glory.
TenZ and company performed decently at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles. Cloud9 only managed one win to be ranked fourth of six participating teams, but two of its five matches resulted in a tie. The $250,000 tournament was the new squad’s most significant to date.
Cloud9 won’t be taking part in the Starladder Berlin Major in 2019, but the team will surely use what it learned from the BLAST Pro Series to improve its prestige and standing in the pro CSGO scene.
