In the case of NRG’s David ‘benjyfishy’ Fish, things are a bit different. The 18-year-old pro from the UK previously haunted the ladders of competitive Fortnite with sheer skills.

Fast forward to today, NRG posted a video of benjyfishy taking a powerful ACE in Valorant. They joked how it seems like benjyfishy is smurfing already!

A Valorant ACE is a piece of cake for NRG benjyfishy

It’s been 6 days since benjyfishy decided to start streaming his progress on Valorant to fans. And, he has been doing so daily! His current rank is Immortal 3, according to his latest Twitch stream two days ago. As expected, he is progressing quite fast.

In the clip from NRG, benjyfishy, as Jett, picks up an ACE on Icebox within a few seconds. His enemies were too slow to figure out his moves. In fact, none of them could shoot back at him, letting his Jett score 5 kills with full shield and health!

For the unaware, smurfing is when a highly-skilled player from higher elo lands in a low elo lobby, creating an imbalance. Well, David outsmarted his enemies with his game sense and aim.

This also isn’t the first time that David is playing Valorant; he has previously played the game on and off stream. “It’s genuinely the most fun that I’ve ever had in gaming!” benjyfishy said as he justified his decision to move to Riot’s shooter.

Although he’s relatively new to Valorant, four years of Fortnite Competitive has definitely helped benjyfishy gain a lot of patience and decision-making skills. In a competitive shooter, patience is the key!

David had signed up with NRG back in 2019 as a Fortnite Competitive player. However, NRG extended their full support when David decided to move on from the game. David will be focusing on progressing in Valorant’s ranked ladder with plans to join the game’s competitive scene later.
