It's no secret how good of an Operator player cNed is. Actually, players like TenZ consider him the best player in the EMEA region in general, and those are pretty big words. Well, after watching his performance in VCT 2021, and especially at Valorant Champions, where Acend won the first-ever world championship title, it's hard to disagree. Let's see what he uses to achieve such accuracy!

  • And by the way, if you're also an Operator player, here are some OP tips for you:
