Michael has a special love for new knife skins from his early days in CS: GO. On a viewer’s request to check out the new knives, Michael found a special liking for a few of them. He also showed interest in using the Valorant Go! Vol. 1 or the Celestial Fan that’s inspired by a Chinese fan.

He also liked the new skins for the guns that have arrived in the update as well, and found a certain love for the Celestial skins that have dropped for the Frenzy and Vandal. He didn’t find the entire set interesting but reiterated that the knives from the additional sets have definitely been the star of the show.

Michael tries the new Escalation Game Mode

After selecting his skins, Michael returned to the action, but this time to try out the new game mode, Escalation. Shroud went into the game with no inclination of what to expect, and he was evidently confused when the game selected his agent randomly.

It took a few minutes for him to get a grasp on how the new mode worked. He further talked about how the game mode reminds him of the Gun Game mode from the Call of Duty series. He further continued by saying this new mode is an amalgamation of the Gun Game mode from CoD and the regular Team Deathmatch. After an entire game, Michael said that it’s a casual game mode, but he definitely thinks that he won’t be playing it that often.
