In a new video on YouTube, Shroud planned an assault on a team at the Oil Rig in the Rust map. There was no actual need to plan such an assault, but what good is a godlike aim if you don’t put it to good use?

With this in mind, Shroud and the squad proceeded to collect resources for the hunt. Shroud had already scouted the area and saw close to two choppers land on the rig. This was definitely alarming, as there was a high possibility that his team would be outnumbered and outgunned.

But when have poor odds deterred Shroud? He proceeded to the rig along with his team in their own chopper. Shroud ensured that his team announced their arrival on the rig in spectacular fashion as he blasted the enemy team with an RPG. He missed the first time, but clearly sent the enemies into meltdown as they were taking heavy fire.

Once Shroud got off the chopper, he started picking off his targets one by one. He missed a couple of times but was accurate with the shots that followed. Apparently, his team was in a better position as he had the ‘high ground’ (IYKYK).

Shroud was visibly impressed with Sykkuno’s effort to take him out

In the well-planned assault led by Shroud, there was one moment where he was in trouble. Out of nowhere, Sykkuno just decided to rush and downed him almost instantly. Unfortunately, he couldn’t finish the job as Shroud’s team killed him and Bnans revived her team leader.

Even though Sykkuno was now dead, Shroud had heaps of praise for him.

“Sykkuno you (almost) killed me you’re amazing. You destroyed me. Still, you’re the better gamer man, you owned me. That was sick.”
