Years after the former Indian CS pro Nikhil "forsaken" Kumawat was banned for cheating, his opponents’ perspectives while playing against him have surfaced on the internet.

Forsaken is undoubtedly one of the most infamous names in CSGO history. Only 4 months after he was signed for team ‘OpTiC India’, he was caught in a cheating scandal during the eXTREMESLAND 2018 Asia Finals. The entire roster of OpTiC India got released following the incident, and the org ceased its operations in India.

Forsaken was served with a 5-year-ban by the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) for cheating during the tournament. His hacks, which were named ‘word.exe’ on his PC, went viral on the internet after the news surfaced worldwide.

Recently, YouTuber Avi Thour has released a compilation of the opponents’ POV when playing against Forsaken and his ‘word.exe’ hacks in CSGO.

We can see the players in the video getting headshot almost instantly after engaging in a duel against Forsaken, sometimes even before seeing his player model. From the video, it’s almost obvious how blatant Forsaken’s cheats were.

Previously, we have seen the owner of OpTic Gaming, Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, commenting on Forsaken’s cheating scandal. “If we were in Mexico, I’d approach him in a f**king different way in a situation like that,” Rodriguez said, back in October.
