F0rest needs no introduction as he is a legend in the world of CS: GO, winning multiple tournaments. He even won a major tournament with NIP (Ninjas in Pyjamas). Many fans might know F0rest for his crucial role in NIP’s 87-0 LAN winning streak. But the old generation CS: GO fans know him as a Fnatic player.

The 33-year-old Swedish played Counter-Strike 1.6 for Fnatic from 2006 to 2010. Currently, he plays for Dignitas. But, Patrik “⁠cArn⁠” Sättermon, the Fnatic co-owner had to get Forest back into the black and orange outfit after 12 years, as the player Fnatic had in mind for the tournament was ill.

F0rest went on to his Twitter to share his excitement about playing for Fnatic once again. He tweeted, Excited to wear black and orange once again during this week, let’s get it.”

Would F0rest join CS: GO team Fnatic permanently?

The Swedish gamer currently plays for Dignitas Gaming and his team earlier this year announced that Lindberg would be staying throughout 2022. However, F0rest was dropped to the team’s inactive roster after not qualifying for PGL Major Antwerp 2022.

The 33-year-old showcased great performance playing for Fnatic in the CS: GO competition in Lund, Sweden. Fnatic faced the team Heroic in their first match. They defeated Heroic 16-14 in the first game of the tournament and Lindeberg was a huge part of this first win. Now, Fnatic will face BIG in their next match of the Group A in the 2022 Pinnacle Cup.

Further, Fnatic signed two new players, Nico “⁠nicoodoz⁠” Tamjidi and Fredrik “⁠roeJ⁠” Jørgensen, but they still didn’t reveal their fifth member for this year. Moreover, Lindberg is currently in the Dignitas’ inactive squad. It might be a great opportunity for him to impress his old teammates and this stand-in role can act as a doorway for the Swedish gamer to join his boyhood team on a longer-term contract.
