Shroud proved naysayers wrong by dominating multiple competitive titles

The streamer found a new lease with streaming after retiring from the competitive setting of Counter-Strike. Back in the day, the community regarded him as one of the flashiest Counter-Strike players in the world.

Kick-starting his second career as a streamer, Apex Legends and PUBG became his most prominent titles for content. Off the back of his amazing skill and popularity of the Battle Royale genre, he became one of the biggest names in the industry.

Among them, Apex played a pivotal in catapulting his stream to newer heights of success. Naysayers compared the simplicity of PUBG with Counter-Strike and doubted his skills in a fast-paced title like Apex Legends. Despite the popular belief, Shroud proved his naysayers wrong by claiming the highest-ranked of Apex Predator in this game.

This feat proved his exceptional skills, as the retired professional achieved the highest rank across multiple games. He earned the Apex Predator rank across multiple seasons of Apex Legends. Meanwhile, he produced similar results in Valorant, PUBG, and Counter-Strike as well.
