After the release of Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund and Richard “Xizt” Landström on September 16, fans have been anxious to find out who would step in to replace two of CSGO’s most famous veterans. Today, they have at least half of their answer.
In a video posted to its official Twitter account, DIGNITAS announced the addition of H4RR3 to its roster. The former Nordavind rifler has extensive experience in tier -wo CSGO, helping Nordavind advance through the game’s ladder, moving from competiting in ESEA Advanced before finally earning a place in ESL’s Mountain Dew League. Now, H4RRe will transition into the big leagues alongside some of CSGO’s greats, namely Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg and Adam “friberg” Friberg.
It may seem strange to swap out the former Ninjas in Pyjamas players for someone like H4RR3, but his statistics over the past year show that the Norweigan rifler has both solid fundamentals and explosive potential. Depending on DIGNITAS’ final addition, DIGNITAS looks primed and ready to make an impact on its next two tournaments.
The team is scheduled for Betway’s Nine to Five Cup later this month and should provide an easy way in for DIG’s new player thanks to the tournament’s lack of top competition. H4RR3 also had the advantage of joining his former teammate Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærli on DIGNITAS, so the new player will be starting with some synergy with his new teammates.

DIGNITAS desperately needs a boost, especially after its 2020 reunion of CSGO’s legendary Ninjas in Pyjamas roster failed to make an impact over nearly nine months of competition. Fans should wait and see who DIGNITAS chooses as its fifth, but either way they now know that DIG’s CSGO squad is full steam ahead towards FLASHPOINT 2 and its $1 million prize pool in November.
