kennyS CS: GO

Kenny Schrub, famously known for his gamer tag “kennyS,” is a French CS: GO player and former professional CS: Source player. He is currently on the bench for G2 Esports after playing as the AWPer for the esports organization since joining them in February 2017. Schrub is best known for adopting a uniquely aggressive AWPing gameplay in early CS: GO, most notably using this technique to bring his team to win the DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca during his time at EnVyUs in 2015.

Early Life

Schrub began playing Counter-Strike at six years old, introduced by his older brother. He and his brothers have a massive age difference, but he was already better by eight years old than his much older siblings. When he was 11 years old, Schrub decided to join a local tournament in his hometown in France, where he won his first-ever gig. After his first victory, Schrub’s older brother encouraged him to pursue his dream of becoming a pro gamer. And his skills led him to be invited to the professional tournaments in Arles, where he began his journey to success.

Professional Career

Schrub, or kennyS is famous for being a CS: Strike player. However, Schrub was already a professional CS: Source player before transitioning to Global Offensive in 2012. He currently plays for G2 Esports, where he joined in February 2017, after a player exchange between the organization and Team EnVyUs.

He played for several professional esports teams during his career. These include Titan, VeryGames, EnVyUs, Recursive esports, Clan-Mystik, and LDLC. Schrub won several tournaments and championships with his different groups throughout his career. 


His most notable award is the “eSports Player of the Year” during The Game Awards in 2015.

Schrub was considered the best sniper in CS: GO before a change to the weapon’s mobility, with a professional Counter-Strike analyst calling him the best player in the game before that change. Regardless, Schrub is still widely labeled as one of the fastest and most skilled AWPers in the game.
