Despite losing to Astralis and being eliminated from the IEM Katowice Major on the 1st of March, Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund has surpassed Jarosław “pashaBiceps” Jarząbkowski as the all-time kill leader across competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive play.
Now at a grand total of 29,132 competitive kills, GeT_RiGhT squeezed past the record during Ninjas in Pyjamas’ 2-0 loss against Astralis. The Swedish team bundled out of the tournament in the last quarterfinals matchup of the New Champions stage.
Throughout his entire Counter-Strike: Global Offensive career, the 28-year-old has represented the Swedish organization after joining them in August 2012. However, he previously competed under the NiP banner in Counter-Strike and also SK Gaming and Fnatic roster.
After achieving an incredible number of accolades at LAN events over his career, it’s no shock that GeT_RiGhT has achieved this feat. Not only has he been active in the scene since its starting, but he’s also bagged including back-to-back “best player” awards in 2013 and 2014 due to his exceptional skill level.
Completing the top five kill leaders in the game is fellow NIP teammate Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg followed by French AWPer Kenny “kennyS” Schrub, and ended by famous Polish in-game leader Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas.
