Knife Kill List
Just like every year, the Knife Kill list comes out at the end of the season. This year, Fnatic’s professional JW takes the lead by securing 34 knife kills in 2020. It seems like Fnatic has a thing about knife kills in the pro games. The second position in the list is also secured by a Fnatic professional, Robin ‘Flusha’ Ronnquist. Flusha secured 18 knife kills in the whole year. The third place in the list is secured by two professionals as they secured the same number of knife kills during the season. Team Big’s professional Florian ‘Syrson’ Rische and Team Heroic member Martin ‘Stavn’ Lund are sitting in the third position by securing 11 kills each.
Knife killing in a professional game of CSGO is not an easy task to accomplish. However, there are professionals who make it possible. Notably, there are only 6 professionals who have secured knife kills above 10 during the whole season of 2020. Team Na’Vi’s legend Oleksandr ‘S1mple’ Kostyliev, who is also referred to as one of the best CSGO professionals of all time, has secured 10 knife kills in the 2020 competitive season.
Extra Cash and Humiliation
Multiple CSGO professionals use knifing to humiliate their opponents. In most cases, professionals make fun by killing their opponents by knife and showing them that they were not even aware of the coming danger. Similarly, some professionals also attempt the knife kills in the game to gain extra gold. One knife-kill in the game rewards $1,500 in-game gold. This reward is greater than any other gun kill. Therefore, professionals prefer knife kill over the gun when they look at the opportunity to kill in ninja mode.
A knife kill is always more appreciable than a regular gun kill. Fans always like to see a twist in the game. Professionals always prefer to attempt knife kill whenever possible. In this way, they attract more audience in their favor, as they secure more knife kills. Knife-kills in a competitive CSGO match is very rare as all the professionals play at a very high intensity. With extreme focus and determination in the game, if an opponent secures a knife-kill over you, the audience just goes nuts.
In the upcoming year, we will get to see more epic games and knife kills as the next season starts soon. Similarly, at the end of the season, we will get another professional to top the knife kills list. For now, JW sits on top in humiliating and securing the most knife kills in the complete season of 2020.
