Originating with the "Operation Broken Fang" update and being available only in field-test quality and higher, this masterpiece is not only embraced by the CS2 community at large but also proudly owned by davey, spiidi, and sterling.

As demonstrated by the CS2 virtuosos spiidi and stewie2k, each round becomes a 1v5 spectacle with this embodiment of individual prowess.
