He became infamous with his play in Overpass against Team LDLC in DreamHack Winter 2014 where he got a 3 man boost inside the ct base and single handedly won fnatic the game. He used a Scar-20, also known as the ‘gaygun’, to destroy ldlc from the heavens as his spot covers both the entrances to B and A bombsites. No one from LDLC knew where the shots were coming from til it was too late already. The map is also now known as ‘Olofpass’ cementing his name on that map.
