Sh1ro: The best pistol-round player of 2022

The Russian sniper is equally as dangerous with his sidepiece

Whilst it is often players wielding the AK-47, M4A1-S, and the AWP who collect the craziest highlights, it is almost as important to be dangerous with lesser weapons such as the Glock or the USP-S. With the economy playing a crucial role in the world of professional CS:GO, a pistol round is perhaps the most important round for your team to win. Not only does it allow your team some momentum in the early stages of a map, but it is also crucial for your team's economy.

A player that is perhaps most known for his AWP'ing abilities is Dmitry "sh1ro" Sokolov and whilst he is undoubtedly a scary beast with 'the big green', he is also the best pistol-round player so far in 2022. Scoring a 1.47 rating, according to HLTV's official statistics, he has been the most dangerous player to face in a pistol round so far in 2022.

Taking a look at an incredible highlight from a month's time ago, when Gambit fought Copenhagen Flames at IEM Katowice 2022, you can see just why he is to be feared in these crucial rounds:
